Senior khalifa of Mufti Mohammad Shafi and Shaykh Dr Hafeezullah Madni (may Allah have mercy on them) and sayyidi wa sanadi’s outsatnding student Mawlana Abdur-Rauf Sukkharvi (may Allah preserve him) instructs the muridin,
Start with the repentance (isteghfar) with the intention,
O Allah! I am Your sinful and disobedient slave.
There is none except You who can forgive me and grant me salvation.
Therefore, in order to ask forgiveness for all of my shortcomings I repent.
Then with full concentration recite;
استغفرالله ربى من كل ذنب و اتوب اليه
