Turn you people in repentance to Allah

Al-Agharr bin Yasar Al-Muzani (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Turn you people in repentance to Allah and beg pardon of  Him. I turn to Him in repentance a hundred times a day”

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

We learn the same two lessons from this hadith as yesterdays hadith (HaD-484):

1.      It is an inducement for seeking pardon and forgiveness. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), whose past and future sins were forgiven, asked Allah’s forgiveness – then how about us, who commit sins on regular a basis, not to seek pardon and forgiveness from Allah?

2.      Sincere and ceaseless prayer for pardon is essential so that sins committed by us unintentionally are also forgiven. The above Hadith lays great emphasis on seeking forgiveness and repenting to Allah.

And Allah Knows Best!
