Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “All human beings without except
ion are sinful, but the best sinners are those who repent the most.”
Whatever the magnitude of your sins, purify your soul by offering repentance and be hopeful of Allah’s mercy. Despair is the characteristic of disbelievers. The integrals of seeking forgiveness are that you recognize the sin that you have committed and determine never to do so again. Thus, to be repentant dictates that you stay away from all such situations and events wherein it is likely that you will falter and commit the evil again.
“And who, when they have committed a shameful deed or have [otherwise] sinned against themselves, remember Allah and pray that their sins be forgiven - for who but Allah could forgive sins? - and do not knowingly persist in doing whatever [wrong] they may have done.”
Dua upon strong winds
Read the following dua for when a strong wind blows:
“Allaahumma ‘innee ‘as’aluka khayrahaa, wa khayra mafeeha, wa khayra ma ‘ursilat bihi wa a’oodhu bika min sharrihaa, wa sharri mafeeha, wa sharri maa ‘ursilat bihi”.
O Allah, I ask You for the good of this wind, for the good of what it contains, and for the good of what is sent with it. I seek refuge in You from the evil of it, from the evil of what it contains, and from the evil that is sent with it.
Ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, took hold of my shoulder and said, “Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler.” Mujahid added: Ibn Umar would say, “If you survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening, and take from your health for your sickness, and take from your life for your death.”
[Sahih Bukhari, Book 76, Number 425]
عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ رضى الله عنهما قَالَ أَخَذَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِمَنْكِبِي فَقَالَ كُنْ فِي الدُّنْيَا كَأَنَّكَ غَرِيبٌ أَوْ عَابِرُ سَبِيلٍ وَكَانَ ابْنُ عُمَرَ يَقُولُ إِذَا أَمْسَيْتَ فَلاَ تَنْتَظِرِ الصَّبَاحَ وَإِذَا أَصْبَحْتَ فَلاَ تَنْتَظِرِ الْمَسَاءَ وَخُذْ مِنْ صِحَّتِكَ لِمَرَضِكَ وَمِنْ حَيَاتِكَ لِمَوْتِكَ

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “Allah the Exalted said: I have prepared for My righteous servants what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and has not crossed the mind of men, but is testified by Allah.” Then he recited the verse, “No soul knows what has been hidden for them of comfort for eyes as reward for what they used to do.” (32:17)
"As for 'Aad, they were arrogant upon the earth without right and said, "Who is greater than us in strength?" Did they not consider that Allah who created them was greater than them in strength? But they were rejecting Our signs. So We sent upon them furious wind in days of evil omen (for them) that We might give them a taste of disgracing torment in this present worldly life, but surely the torment of the Hereafter will be more disgracing, and they will never be helped." [Quran 41:15-16]
