SUPPLICATION OF REPENTANCE (TAUBA) IN SAHIFA KAMILA
PART - 1
Tauba means to return or come back. It means a man feels sorry for his sins and sincerely prays to Allah to abstain from committing the same sin again. If the sin can be addressed to like discharge any unfulfilled obligation, then he should discharge that liability and if it cannot be done then he should perform such deeds for the aggrieved person that on the Day of Judgment he may be pleased with the sinner. The basic cause of repentance is the knowledge and conviction of reward and punishment. No man is exempt from repentance because every one makes mistake or intention or thought of committing a sin.
As soon as a man commits a sin, he should repent right away because no one knows when he will die. If he postpones repentance he may not repent at all. Moreover, this repentance is a clear evidence that his mind is still intact on natural integrity.
The Holy Prophet (s) said “If a man repents one year before his death, Allah will accept his repentance. He further said that even if he repents one month before or one day before or even one hour before his death, Allah will accept his repentance and forgive his sins”
Duaa-e-Tauba is as follows:
O Allah, O He whom the depiction of describers, fails to describe,
O He beyond whom passes not the hope of the hopers,
O He with whom is not lost the wage of the good-doers,
O He who is the ultimate object of the fear of the worshippers,
O He, who is the utmost limit of the dread of the God-fearing,
This is the station of Him whom sins have passed from hand to hand.
Offenses’ reins have led him on,
And Satan has gained mastery over him.
He fell short
of what you have commanded
He saw his vast disobedience as vast and his great opposition as great.
So turned to
you, hoping in you ashamed
He repaired to you in his longing with certitude and he went straight to you in fear with sincerity.
was devoid of every object of
longing but you,
So he stood
before you pleading,
He will not
deny your justice, my God, if
you punish him
O god so here
I am: I have come to you obeying
O God, so
Bless Muhammad and his
O God, make
firm my intention to obey you,
O God, I
repent to you in this my station
said, my God, in the firm text
of your Book,
O God, you
know better what I have done, so
forgive me what you know
counted against me are claims
that stay in my memory,
their owners, lighten their load
