#MuftiMenk highlights the beautiful benefits of #Istighfar (the act of seeking forgiveness from Allah) in this lecture. He says that Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala has kept certain duties on our shoulders that we need to fulfil these. One thing that is of extreme importance that He has found very beneficial in his own life and obviously derived straight from the Sunnah of Rasulullah (saw) that is to ask Allah’s forgiveness genuinely every single day. Do not let a day pass without asking Allah’s #forgiveness.
Mufti Menk urges not to reduce istighfar to a mere service by the mouth. It should be genuine. We should feel it in our heart – oh Allah forgive me. “Seeking forgiveness is such a great act of worship and even if you have not done anything wrong just by mere virtue of asking Allah’s forgiveness your status is being elevated; it’s being elevated you get closer to Allah (swt).”- Mufti Menk
