Du’a Invoked By Nabi Adam (‘A)

After they ate from the forbidden tree at the instigation of Shaytan (Satan), the enemy to mankind, Nabi Adam (‘a) and Bibi Hawwa begged Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, for His Mercy and forgiveness in the following manner:

رَبَّنا ظَلَمْنا أَنْفُسَنا وَإِنْ لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنا وَتَرْحَمْنا لَنَكونَنَّ مِنَ الخاسِرينَ

“O our Rabb! We both have wronged ourselves; if you do not forgive us and do not have mercy upon us, then indeed we both shall be ruined.” (7:23).
