Seeking the Forgiveness of Allah
Allah is the Greatest. One of the 99 names of Allah is Al Ghaffar which means The Repeatedly Forgiving. Allah is the Most Forgiving and the Most Merciful. There is absolutely no one like Him.
"Lo! men who surrender unto Allah, and women who surrender, and men who believe, and women who believe and men who obey and women who obey, and men who speak the truth and women who speak the truth, and men who presevere (in righteousness) and women who persevere, and men who are humble and women who are humble, and men who give alms and women who give alms, and men who fast and women who fast, and men who guard their modesty and women who guard (their modesty), and men who remember Allah much and women who remember-Allah hath prepared for them forgiveness and a vast reward" Quran Chapter 33:35
We all commit sins, it is very possible to avoid the major sins. When you avoid the major sins, Allah says He will overlook your minor sins. Allah loves charity, when you give out charity, Allah says you have given Him a loan and He will double it for you and He will forgive you. The only One that forgives sins is Allah. He forgives all sins. However, if you offend someone, it is okay for you to ask the person to pardon you. That will please Allah.
Seek for forgiveness from Allah every time you pray. Saying SubhanAllahi Wa Bihamdihi (which means Glory and Praise belongs to Allah) 100 times during Fajr and Maghrib prayers is a way of seeking forgiveness from Allah. Saying La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa Huwa'ala kuli sha'in Qadeer (which means There is no God but Allah alone. He has no partner, His is dominion and His is praise and He is Capable of all things) 100 times during the Fajr prayers is another way of seeking His Forgiveness. Saying Astaghfirullahal wa atoobu ilaihi (which means I seek the Forgiveness of Allah and repent unto Him) 100 times during the Fajr prayers is another way of seeking forgiveness from Allah
Saying Astaghfirullahal 'Azeemalladhi la ilaha illa Huwal Hayyul Qayyomu, wa atoobu illahi (which means I seek the Forgiveness of Allah the Mighty other than Whom there is no other God, the Living, the Eternal and repent unto Him) after every prayer (5 daily prayers) is another way of seeking His Forgiveness.
