Repentence…

Guidance from The Prophet (saws)

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (saws) reported: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) saying: "By Allah, I seek Allah's forgiveness and repent to Him more than seventy times a day.''’

Commentary: 

Although the Prophet (saws) was absolutely sinless, and Allah Subhanah had forgiven his past and future sins…..the Messenger of Allah (saws) used to seek forgiveness from and repent unto The Lord Most High more than seventy times a day.

Should we then, who probably commit sins with every breath we take, not seek pardon and repent unto the Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful?
