This collection of seventy prayers for forgiveness [istighfarat] is attributed to one of the greatest spiritual luminaries of the past, Hasan al-Basri, and it has been presented here to offer a way for us to navigate through the complications and pitfalls of this life. This is the audio read out by Mufti Abdur Rahman. For more information on the book please visit White Thread Press.
Mufti Abdur Rahman relates a story of a man who had a hefty mortgage on his home and wanted to get out of interest based repayments but did’t earn enough. He prayed to Allah in the month of Ramadan to relieve him of his debt with astounding results.
The extreme power of Allah (swt) is highlighted and we are reminded of Allah’s ongoing help throughout our existence to powerful effect. Mufti Abdur Rahman provides an explanation of the divine saying “I am as My servant thinks of me” to provide profound insight and understanding of how we can gain Allah’s maximum help.
