Making istighfar (saying astaghfirAllah and asking for forgiveness), is our way as Muslims to seek forgiveness from our Lord swt. It roughly translates into “I seek forgiveness from Allah swt.” The phrase is also closely related to one of Allah’s swt beautiful names – Al Ghaffar. As hard as it is to translate any of the names of Allah swt into English with the full force of their meanings, Al Ghaffar means something along the lines of “The Great Forgiver, The One Who is Perpetually Forgiving.”
