The act of seeking forgiveness is what gives us the opening we need after feeling overwhelmed by the burden of sin. Forgiveness means a way out, a second chance, a feeling of hope with which to turn a new page in life. It is through the seeking of forgiveness that we begin to understand that there is no reason whatsoever to despair of the mercy of God. Islam encourages us ...more

Recommends it for: those seeking forgiveness
This book will really make you cry...it's as if someone looked in your heart, and elequently wrote prayers for God's forgiveness and pardon on your behalf. If these are prayers Hasan Al-Basri made, than what type of prayers should we be making...

Recommends it for: Anyone who suffers from dry duas
Shelves: islam
A small collection of duas from this very early master of sufism shows you how the great saints used to approach Allah in their duas with such humility and humbleness despite (because) their higher levels of piety.

Recommends it for: those looking to be moved, those searching for that much-needed reality check
It is somewhat redundant to add to the excellent reviews already posted on this book, but I highly reccomend it for everyone, everyone, everyone. If you read it sincerely and openly, it will widen and deepen your chest, it will induce humility and ecstasy, a slow, careful measure of the pleasure and nature and moments of every breath...you will be in a state - that state we look for, the state we miss when we reflect on spiritual highs we've had in the past, or sought in the past, or observed in ...more

Recommends it for: everyone
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to ask Allah for forgiveness 100 times a day - not because he ever committed a sin, but because he felt that he was not able to truly worship Him as He deserved to be worshipped.

This book, written by a man who was taught by Imam Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, is essential for the sinner, the beginner, and even the saintly. I highly recommend it.

This is the kind of little pocket of book one should read in the quiteness of the night. Alone and in reflection, it can bring tears to the heart.

This book also gives you an idea of the author, Hasan Al Basri R.A.
