SHAFAQNA -Imam Ali (AS) said: There were two secure shelters on earth which saved people from God’s punishment against their sins; one was the precious existence of the Prophet (PBUH) who was a mercy for the entire world and the other asking for divine forgiveness. Now that by painful passing away of the Prophet (PBUH) one of these has been taken away, you need to ask God for forgiveness . It is also narrated from the Prophet (PBUH) who said: Two securities given to my Ummah by God who said: Until you are among them, God will not punish them and as long as they ask for forgiveness, God will not punish them. Therefore, when I am gone, I will leave for you “asking for divine forgiveness” until the Day of Judgement .
