CHAPTER: EXCELLENCE OF SEEKING FORGIVENESS FROM ALLAAH AND SEEKING THAT VERY MUCH
Al-Agharr al-Muzani, who was one amongst the Companions (of the Prophet) reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: There is (at times) some sort of shade upon my heart, and I seek forgiveness from Allaah a hundred times a day.
Al-Agharr al-Muzani who was from amongst the Companions of Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) reported that Ibn 'Umar stated to him that Allaah's Messenger (may peace 'be upon him) said: O people, seek repentance from Allaah. Verily, I seek repentance from Him a hundred times a day.
This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Shu'ba with the same chain of transmitters.
Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as say- ing: He who seeks repentance (from the Lord) before the rising of the sun from the west (before the Day of Resurrection), Allaah turns to him with Mercy.
