How to repent?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Abu Bakr as-Siddiq narrates: I asked,

"O Messenger of Allah! Teach me an invocation so that I may invoke Allah with it after my prayer." The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"Pray as follows:

"O Lord! I have done great injustice to myself and none except You forgives sins, so bestow on me a forgiveness from You, and Have Mercy on me, You are the Forgiver, the Merciful." (Bukhari, Adhan, 149, Daawat, 16)

"O Lord! You are Allah. There is no god but You. You are free from imperfection and deficiencies. You are high. I have wronged myself. O Lord! I expect Your pardoning."

"Our Lord! We have been unjust to ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and do not have mercy on us, we shall certainly be of the losers."

"O Allah! You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness, so forgive me."
