Istighfar means to seek Allah’sivJ- forgiveness for one’s sins. Man is prone to sin while Atlah^^JHS all forgiving. Sin and misdeeds are the dirt of the heart while taubah (repentance) and Fstighfar are the cleansing agents. Those who make Istighfar often are worthy of appreciation, for a Hadith says:
The best forms of Istighfar are found in the Quran Shareef or taught by our beloved Nabi £*i^&> or the Sahabah &JJ&J, or the Tabf een in that order. Next are the forms taught by the Awliya(or religious elders),
The book of Shaikh Qutubuddin Hanfi j^m3&£ MdMyah tul hajji wal umrah” is appended to “Irshaad us saari” of Mulla All Qari tfaOdU*. It contains the seventy Istighfar attributed to Sayyidina Hassan Basn ^^il^ these are repeated on the 7th, 9th and 10th of Zulhajjah and they are entitled “Al Munqazah minnan naar”.
in the book under review, Maulana Muhammad Hanif Abdul Majeed (May Allah increase him in knowledge and deeds) has translated these seventy istighfar and arranged them into seven sections. In this way, one section may be read each dav of the week. All the Istighfar may be read in the fore-mentioned nights so that their blessings may pour on the reader.
May All ah &S£j£ approve it. Praise belongs to Allah dfeji-From the first to the last.
