May Allah guide you nearer to him. It's good you're honest, and are asking to repent. Allah is more merciful than our parents, and surely he will forgive you if you really ask for it. Make an intention to never repeat this again, and pray for forgiveness from Allah, and he will forgive you if you are genuine.
As for your future ...
Similar as in any other time of the year, by repenting sincerely, stopping the sin at once, giving back what is not yours or correcting your mistake towards others (and apologizing and asking them for forgiveness) and trying never to repeat it again.
To seek forgiveness one doesn't need to recite qur'an nor to seek a special hour. Nevertheless it may be ...
Absolutely! Allah is most forgiving and merciful did you hear the Hadith?
Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “A prostitute had once been forgiven. She passed by a dog panting near a well. Thirst had nearly killed him, so she took off her sock, tied it to her veil, and drew up some water. Allah forgave her for that.”
The fact that you did it unknowingly and want to ask for forgiveness, shows your strength in faith. There are so many ways you can ask for fogivness. You can make dikhr and recite astaghfirallah, you can make sure to repeat it in your daily prayers, and you can simply hold out your hands and make dua. Remember, that Allah (swt) is the oft-forgiving ...
A simple answer to your question. Allah says in his glorious Quran
Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allāh. Indeed, Allāh forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."
- For those who repent and correct themselves.
(Surat al-Zumar: 53)
Perform salah-at Tawba it is a
Tahajjud prayer which is to be done after isha and before fajr.
There is a complete different between seeking forgiveness and repenting.
When perform tawba you have to truthfully and whole heartedly feel bad for your sin promise never to do it again and truly mean it. Of course seeking forgiveness is important but it’s more ...
Their interpretation of the hadith is wrong, as the burden of sin can not be transferred and it is actually unjust to punish someone for the deeds of another.
لا تكسب كل نفس إلا عليها ولا تزر وازرة وزر أخرى
Every soul earns not [blame] except against itself, and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another.
— Quran 6:164
What the hadith actually ...
We don't have any clear evidence like reports from the Prophet (SAW) as far as I could find.
However, many tafasir give these two reasons as possible (beyond the obvious one that they are repenting from their general mistakes):
They are setting an example for people on what to do near the House of Allah.
They are seeking forgiveness for their descendants, ...
As for as Isthighfar and tawba is concerned its a matter of heart in islam unlike christianity wherein you have to orally say it to a pastor to have your sin forgiven, in islam there is no such condition. When a person sins, he needs to gain back his consciousness, regret the sin he/she committed and seek forgiveness to Allah with a firm resolve to never go ...
All of us are sinful and incomplete. Our job is to stay away from sins as much as possible and ask for fogiveness always.
In Quran Allah mentioned many prayers of HIS messengers so we can repeat them as per our situation
Best time of pray is last part of night
