Asking Allaah to Forgive Every male and female Muslim

Asking Allaah to Forgive Every male and female Muslim

Upon the authority of Ubaadah ibnu Saamit (radiAllaahu 'anhu) who said: I heard the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) say: Whoever seeks forgiveness for the male and female believers, Allaah writes for him a good deed for every male and female believer! [Collected by At-Tabaraani in Musnad Ash-Shaamiyeen 3/234, hadeeth no. 2155 - declared Hasan by Al-Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami' (6026)]
Shaykh Abdur-Razzaq ibn Abdul-MuHsin al-Abbaad Al-Badr (hafidhahumallaah 'ala as-Sunnah) said: 
"... Whoever seeks forgiveness for the male Muslims and the female Muslims, he will receive for himself a good deed for each and every one of them. Do you know how many good deeds you will receive if you say in your supplication: Allaahumma ighfirr lil-Muslimeenawal-Muslimaat wal-Mu`mineena wal-Mu`minaat, al-aHyaa minhum wal-amwaat (Oh Allaah, forgive the male and female Muslims, and the male and female believers, the living from them and the deceased). 
A phrase which is not even one line. How many good deeds will you receive?! Count from Adam until Allaah inherits the earth and all those upon it. You will receive a good deed for every Muslim - millions of good deeds! Then you supplicate for them (those living) to have guidance, firmness, assistance, success, and safety from trials and tribulations. If this supplication comes from your heart, this is proof of the soundness of your heart and conscience for the welfare of your Muslim brother."

O soul of mine! It is not but a few days of patience; as if the extent were but a few dreams. 
O soul of mine! Pass on quickly through this world; and leave it, for indeed life lies ahead of it. 
Imam ash-Shafi`i
