Rasulullah (Sallallâhu alahi wasallam) has mentioned that "If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not." [Abu Dawud]

The three conditions of Istighfar are:
1. to refrain from the sin.
2. to express remorse on the sin committed.
3. to make a firm intention not to return to that sin.

Friends, the Allâh of the sinners and the pious ones is the same. Where are we going to go leaving Allâh? There is no refuge. It is highly essential to repent and seek forgiveness. Shaytân puts embarrassment into one at such an occasion. He asks you how can you repent when you commit the same crime every day. He tells you that this is a shame. What is shame in reality?

The great Muhaddith, Mullâ Ali Qâri (Rahimahullâh) says, "Your Master should not find you in a state which He has prohibited you from." Allâh is finding us daily in a state of sin. Then we claim to have shame. When repenting we feel ashamed but when we commit sins then there is no shame! This is a great deception of Shaytân. Actual shame is that a person should refrain from sin and feel ashamed to commit a sin.
