It is considered one of the essential parts of worship in Islam. Astaghfirullah literally translates to "I seek forgiveness in Allah". In a religious way, people can recite it during meditation or say it to others to show humility. That is to say that Allah is the greater or that goodness comes from Allah. In popular culture, people can say this if they see something wrong or shameful. Islam posits that human beings were created by Allah, with the ability to choose their own actions; either to do good deeds and obey Allah or choose to do evil deeds and disobey Him.

Thus, Istighfar is the weapon of believers against shaytan who tries to lead them into hell by inviting them to sin. Istighfar, and some other names from the same root such as Ghafir , Al-Ghafoor , Ghaffar , occur in the Qur'an more than seventy times. In the Qur'an , there are numerous verses on the issue of Istighfar, in which Allah commands the believers to always seek His forgiveness and turn to Him.

Some examples of these verses are:. Seeking forgiveness Istighfar has 3 conditions with an additional 4th one if the sin involves the violation another person's right:. The Istighfar of an ordinary man was not a special case since they are not infallible. But in the case of the prophets and angels, such an act may be interpreted otherwise, because naturally, it contradicts the attributes of infallibility in them prophets.

Though, there is some relevant evidence showing the fact that prophets and the angels were also engaged in asking for divine forgiveness. Our Lord! Indeed we have faith. So forgive us our sins, and save us from the punishment of the Fire. O Allah! Forgive me my sins, surely you are Forgiving, Merciful.

Forgive me, have mercy on me, guide me, guard me against harm and provide me with sustenance and salvation. You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins.

So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.
