How to get pardoned by Allah

The Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah clarified reasons for which Allah pardons His believing servants, saying: “When a believer commits a sin, he may be forgiven through ten means: Turning to Allah in Tawbah (repentance) which He accepts, for those whose Tawbah from a sin is accepted it is as if they had not sinned at all; making Istighfar (seeking forgiveness from Allah) so that Allah forgives them; performing good deeds that expiate bad ones; having believers offer Du’a (supplication) and Istighfar on their behalf while they are living and after they pass away; having believers grant them the reward of some of their deeds so that Allah accepts their Shafa’ah (intercession); Allah accepting the Shafa’ah of His Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) for them; Allah afflicting them with some calamities that expiate their sins; Allah sending upon them Sa’qah (blast) during Barzakh (period between death and the Resurrection) so that their sins are expiated; Allah trying them by some of the terrors of the Day of Resurrection so that they are forgiven; or that Allah The Most Merciful grants them His Mercy. Whoever is not entitled to receive any one of these means for forgiveness should blame no one but himself.” (Majmu’ Al-Fatawa vol. 10 p. 45)
