Episode Notes

Nouman Ali Khan delivers a beautiful lecture on the essential topic of Istighfar.

The lecture begins with a comparison between Adam AS and Iblees. Adam AS and Iblees violated the commandments of Allah. But what differentiates them is what transpires after the sin has been committed? What were the key points of differentiation between the two?

How do we attain forgiveness of our sins? Nobody is perfect and everyone commits sins. So, we should take respite in the fact that Allah says that the best of the sinners are those who repent and seek the Mercy of Allah SWT. Allah loves the repentance of the sinner. If were to compile a list of the Names of Allah, the majority of the Attributes of Allah demonstrates the Mercy of Allah. Allah tells us to never be disheartened by our sins, as Allah says that He forgives all sins regardless of their nature. Assuming that Allah cannot forgive you is possibly the biggest sin that one can commit. We are in fact challenging Allah that He might not encompass you in His Infinite Mercy, Astaghfirullah. How can we then give up hope of forgiveness of Allah?
