Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said in another Hadith:
The one who seeks forgiveness for Muslim males and females from Allah Taaala twenty six or twenty
five times every day, Allah Taala will count that person among those whose Dua is accepted, and
through the barakah of whom those on earth gain Rizq (sustenance).
