Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah [رحمه الله] said:

‏«فإن الله يغفر للعبد أيّ ذنب تاب منه ، فمن تاب من الشرك غفر الله له ، ومن تاب من الكبائر غفر الله له.»

❝Indeed Allaah forgives a slave of Allaah any sin which he repents from. Whoever repents from Shirk then Allaah forgives him. Whoever repents from the major sins then Allaah forgives him.❞

Majmoo al-Fatawa,11/185


There are those who venerate the creation, so that they do not respect their private time in the presence of God. By the amount that they engage in private sins, and by the degree of their sins, a bad scent spreads from them, so that [people’s] hearts begin to dislike them.
– Ibn Al Jawzi
