Shaddad ibn Aws (RadiAllahu Anhu) relates that the Prophet Muhammad (SalAllahu Alayhi Wasalam) said that the most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is to say (Sayyid al-Istighfar ). That “if somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise.”
[Sahih al-Bukhari; 8,75,318, at-Tirmidhi; 3393, an-Nasa’i; 5522, Ahmad; 16662]
