Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"By the One in
Whose Hand my soul is! If you do not commit sins, Allah would replace you with a people who would commit sins
and seek forgiveness from Allah; and Allah will certainly forgive them
This Hadith does not mean that Allah likes disobedience. But by this way of description, the aim is
to emphasize the importance of seeking forgiveness from Allah. We know that every man commits sins. But Allah
likes those people who, after committing a sin, do not stick to it, but right away seek forgiveness for their sins from
Allah. They weep and express sorrow before Allah. By seeking forgiveness, a relationship with Allah is established
between man and his Creator. So seeking forgiveness is a very good act.

Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: We counted Messenger's saying a hundred times during
one single sitting:
Rabb-ighfir li, wa tubb `alayya, innaka Antat-Tawwabur-Rahim. (My Rubb! Forgive me and
pardon me. Indeed, You are the Oft-Returning with compassion and Ever Merciful
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
This Hadith tells us about the etiquette of praying to Allah. We should use the Names of Allah
befitting our prayers, i.e., the Names of Allah signifying those Attributes of Allah which have a special concern with
the subject of our particular prayer, i.e., while seeking forgiveness, His Names concerning His Attributes of
forgiveness and kindness should be used. On the other hand, while praying for worldly matters, we should mention
His Qualities of charity and bestowing gifts etc.

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
If anyone
constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every
anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not

Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
He who says:

forgiven even if he should have run away from the battlefield (while he was engaged in fighting for the Cause of
