Astaghfirullahal Lazi Hadith
It was narrated from Abu Yasaar that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever says Astaghfir Allaah al-‘Azeem alladhi laa ilaaha illa huwa al-Hayyu al-Qayyoom wa atoobu ilayhi (I ask forgiveness of Allaah the Almighty, besides Whom there is no god, the Ever-Living, the Eternal, and I repent to Him), will be forgiven even if his sin is fleeing from the battlefield [a major sin].” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3577; Abu Dawood, 1517.
It is mustahabb for the Muslim to pray for forgiveness a great deal. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to pray for forgiveness one hundred times every day and night.
This is the Messenger – peace and blessings be upon him – who has been forgiven his previous and future sins by Allah; he would seek forgiveness more than seventy times everyday.
Benefits Of Astaghfirullahal Lazi
When the individual turns in repentance to his Lord, he gets two benefits therefrom:
The first benefit: Obedience to the command of Allah and His Messenger; and obeying the order of Allah and His Messenger entails every good; success in this world and the Hereafter lies in obeying Allah and His Messenger.
The second benefit: Following the example of the Allah’s Messenger SAW who would turn to Allah in repentance a hundred times daily.
Repentance requires being honest such that once a person repents to Allah, he refrains from the sin.
But for the person who only repents upon his tongue while his mind still clings to committing the sinful act or abandoning acts of obligation; or that he repents to Allah with sheer utterance while his limbs persist on committing evils, his repentance will not benefit him.

- It is also gateway of productivity.
