SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: There is a medicine for every illness and the medicine for sins is asking for divine forgiveness . Imam Ali (AS) said: Asking for divine forgiveness will cleanse the sins . It is also narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: I am amazed from the one who can ask for divine forgiveness and is still hopeless . In another narration, Imam Ali (AS) said: By asking for divine forgiveness, make yourselves smell nice so that the smell of sins do not disgrace you .
