Asking for Divine Pardon

Asking for Divine Pardon

Imam Amir ul Mu’mineen Ali [a] said:

“Perfume yourself with penitence so that the stench of your sins do
not disgrace you.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 6, p. 22

Imam Amir ul Mu’mineen Ali [a] taught someone to seek Allah in
invocation in brief by saying:

“Praise is (only) Allah’s for every blessing; and I ask Him for all
goodness; and I take refuge in Allah from all vices; and, I seek
Allah’s forgiveness for all sins.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 94, p. 242

Imam Baqir [a] said that the Holy Prophet [s] was once asked about
the best servants and he replied:

“They are such that: when they do good, they are cheerful about it;
when they do wrong, they seek forgiveness; when they are granted
(something), they are thankful; when they are involved in a
difficulty, they show patience; and when they become angry (with
someone), they pardon.”

Khisal by Saduq, p. 317

Imam Sadiq [a] said:

“When a believing Muslim frequently asks Allah for forgiveness, his
record (of deeds) will ascend while it will be glowing.”

Makarim-ul-Akhlaq, p. 313
