BismiLLAH

Was Salaatu Was Salaamu 'alaa RasuliLLAH.

Salaam.

I post this to share with you that which I heard from the khutbah of the masjid I prayed Jumu'ah today. The Imam has been sharing with us words that make us feel happy and hearts tranquiled. He continued from his series of Khutbah on seeking forgiveness from ALLAH by saying AstaghfirULLAH.

 

He said, someone came to Hasan al Basri (RA) and complained to him that he needed wealth. The Imam told him to recite Istighfaar.

Another person came to the Imam and complained to him that he needed a child, the Imam told him to recite Istighfaar.

The third person came to him and complained to him of dryness in their land and that they needed rainfall. The Imam told him to recite Istighfaar.

 

Then the Imam was asked why he told the three people to recite Istighfaar rather than give them different alternatives.

The Imam then read to them some verses of the Qur'an from Surah al Nuh.

Saying, seek forgiveness of your Lord, (recite Istighfaar)

For God is most forgiving,

''and will send you plenty of rain

and furnish you

with property and children,

and provide you

with gardens and rivers.

 

Brothers and Sisters, that is our remedy. This is the Qur'an speaking and it is where we take our most reliable wird from. Istighfaar won't cost us any thing when we recite it while doing business transaction, laying down, sitting, walking, driving or even with friends. Rather, it will bring khair and barakah into our lives.

 

Try it for yourselves.

Salaam
