    حدثنا عمرو بن عثمان بن سعيد بن كثير بن دينار الحمصي حدثنا أبي حدثنا محمد بن عبد الرحمن بن عرق سمعت عبد الله بن بسر يقول قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم طوبى لمن وجد في صحيفته استغفارا كثيرا
    صحيح ابن ماجة 3078; صحيح ,صحيح سنن ابن ماجة باختصار السند, محمد تاصر الدين الألباني

    ‘Abdullah bin Busr said that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: Tooba* is for the one who finds in his book (i.e. his book of deeds) lots of istighfar.

    [Saheeh Ibn Maajah 3078; saheeh according to Al-Albaani rahimahullah]

    *Tooba: We know this word from the famous hadeeth of the strangers, the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam states: fa Tooba lil ghurabaa’, so Tooba to the strangers. What does Tooba mean?

    It is said to be from 3 meanings:
    1- plural of tayyibah
    2- masdar(verbal noun) of tayyib
    3- feminine version of atyab اطيب‬‬ (superlative)

    From this we derive that it means every kind of good that has biqaa’, an everlasting nature. Tooba is happiness that lasts. Also Tooba is whatever makes you rich and content and you won’t be in need of anything else to satisfy you. We also learn from a hadeeth that Tooba is a tree in Jannah. The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Tooba is a tree in Paradise, as big as a hundred year’s journey; the clothes of the people of Paradise comes from the outer parts of its flowers” (Silsilat al-Hadith as-Saheehah, 4/639, no. 1985, the isnaad is hasan)

    may Allah ta’ala grant us tooba and make us among those who constantly seek His Forgiveness.
