Returning to Allah and seeking his forgiveness whenever a slave commits a sin, is one of the most beloved forms of worship. Repentance has a status in Islam that no other act of worship has. Almighty Allah says:
Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves. (Al-Baqarah 2:222)
Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “All the sons of Adam are sinners, but the best of sinners are those who repent often.” (At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)
In this short talk, Dr. Ahmad Saqr talks about one of the many recommended prayers that are found in the Islamic Jurisprudence, the prayer of repentance (Salat at-Tawbah). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When a servant (of Allah) commits a sin, and he performs ablution well, and then stands and prays two rak`ahs, and asks pardon of Allah, Allah pardons him.” (Abu Dawud)
