Imam Zeynel Abidin (عليه السلام) and Namaz-e-Ghufayla prayer
Once a man after the tragedy of Karbala came into the presence of Imam Zeynel Abidin (عليه السلام) and Syeda Zainab (sa) and said, Ya Imam, I am one of those who were involved in the killing of your father in Karbala and I wished to be forgiven, hence advice, what am I suppose to do to be forgiven?

Imam Zeynel Abidin (عليه السلام) thought about it and replied, to pray Namaz-e-Ghufayla prayer.


This man was very happy after hearing the advice from Imam and left. Syeda Zainab (sa) observing this, asked Imam Zeynel Abidin (عليه السلام), how can such a great sin be forgiven? Imam Zeynel Abidin (عليه السلام) replied, it cannot, and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will make it such that this man won’t have the ability (Tawfiq) ever to perform this Namaz-e-Ghufayla prayer

Another version:

 

سأل يزيد بن معاوية لعنة الله عليه، الإمام زين العابدين سلام الله عليه، هل لي من توبة وقد قتلت أباك أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام)؟ فقال له الإمام السجاد عليه السلام: نعم ؛ وهي أن تصلي صلاة "الغفيلة" أربعين ليلة أو قال أربعين جمعة! فغضبت العقيلة زينب سلام الله عليها، وعاتبت الإمام السجاد سلام الله عليه؛ فقال لها سلام الله عليه: لا عليك يا عمة، إنه لا يوفق لها.

 

This is Allah's mercy. The will to forgive the killers of Hussain عليه السلام. However, the criteria is 'Tawfiq'

It is not realible. Another version it says Yazid is seeking repetance:

Some people claim that when Yazid b. Mu'awiya murdered Imam Husayn (a) and witnessed people's dissatisfaction about the event, he asked Imam al-Sajjad (a) if there was a way for him to be saved from this sin. The Imam (a) told him that he could perform the repentance by saying the Ghufayla prayer. Lady Zaynab (a) asked the Imam (a) why he taught the way of repentance to the murderer of his father. Imam Sajjad (a) replied that Yazid will not be able to say the Ghufayla prayer.

This hadith is not cited in reliable collections of hadiths, and its content has been subject to objections.

That hadith is indeed not reliable, but it does not take away from the Fadhl of Salat al-ghufaila, as it has been mentioned in numerous ahadith to being a very important mustahab prayer.

I agree, Salaat AlGhufaila is very important and recommended.

What did you mean by “sincere”?

is it really a sincere struggle?

Some struggles are for the show off, for satisfying ego, or for other reasons, mixed with the intention of seeking Allahs’s pleasure.

If somehow, the sole intention becomes only and only for the sake of Allah, it would become sincere. It’s a hard feet indeed, only a few achieve it.

... a passing comment: Late Ay Khomenei (may Allah increase his levels) while visiting Behest e Zahra graveyard soon after he was welcomed by millions at the airport, was asked, “how do you feel? His answer, “ہیچ” - insignificant.

That sort of struggle, only for Allah...

This Hadith sounds off because this doesn’t sound like something Seyyidna Zainab (عليه السلام), a woman of gnosis (marifatullah), would say.  And same applies to Imam Zainul Abideen (عليه السلام).

What exactly we call as His mercy? Forgiving & erasing of sins or not punishing on our sins or what? 
What exactly you know & understand about divine mercy?

Mercy is any time we deserve punishment and are not punished.
