عن أَنَسٍ رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول اللَّهِ  صلى الله عليه وسلم الله أَفْرَحُ بِتَوْبَةِ عَبْدِهِ من أَحَدِكُمْ سَقَطَ على بَعِيرِهِ وقد أَضَلَّهُ في أَرْضِ فَلَاةٍ

Anas ibn Malik (rta) stated that God’s Messenger (sws) said: “The Almighty is more pleased with the repentance of a servant than anyone of you who suddenly found his camel he had lost in a desert.”[1]

 

عن أبي مُوسَى عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إِنَّ اللَّهَ عز وجل يَبْسُطُ يَدَهُ بِاللَّيْلِ لِيَتُوبَ مُسِيءُ النَّهَارِ وَيَبْسُطُ يَدَهُ بِالنَّهَارِ لِيَتُوبَ مُسِيءُ اللَّيْلِ حتى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ من مَغْرِبِهَا

Abu Musa Ash‘ari (rta) reported that the Prophet(sws) said: “God, the Powerful, the Mighty, spreads His hands at night so that a person who has sinned in the day returns [to Him] and [also] spreads His hand in the day so that a person who has sinned in the night returns [to Him] until the sun rises from the West [on the Day of Judgement.]”[2]

 

بن عُمَرَ قال قال رسول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يا أَيُّهَا الناس تُوبُوا إلى اللَّهِ فَإِنِّي أَتُوبُ في الْيَوْمِ إليه مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (rta) stated that God’s Messenger (sws) said: “O People! Seek repentance from God. Thus, I seek repentance [from Him] a hundred times every day.”[3]
