Rabbana La Tuakhizna Inna Sina Meaning
According to Tafsir Ibn Sa’adi, this ayah means: ‘Pardon our wrong actions if we forget and make a mistake or simply forget or simply make a mistake,’ as the Prophet SAW said,
Error and forgetfulness have been removed from my Community and from what they are forced to do,’ i.e. its being a wrong action in those cases.
There is no disagreement that the wrong action is cancelled out. There is disagreement about the rulings connected to that action.
Does that cancellation of the action mean that the action has no legal consequences or does it still entail all its legal consequences?
There is disagreement about that, and the sound position is that it varies according to the circumstances. It is agreed that some consequences are not cancelled, like penalties, blood money and obligatory prayers, and others are agreed to be cancelled, like retaliation and speaking words which can be considered to be disbelief.
There is disagreement about a third category, like eating out of forgetfulness in Ramadan or breaking an oath out of forgetfulness.
- This is a supplication for tawbah (repentance).
- Asking for the forgiveness of Allah (swt) is the best kind of prayer you can make.
- It shows humility in your character, protects you from boasting or growing prideful.
- Constant repentance is a characteristic that shows your complete reliance on Allah for all things and can open the door of rizq (provision) for you.
