"Shaytaan said, 'By the Lord, I will continue to mislead the children of Adam (AS) as long as their souls are in their bodies.' The Lord Almighty said, 'I will continue to forgive them as long as they seek my forgiveness.'"
(Hadith narrated in Ahmed)
Al-Hasan al-Basri (r) said,
"Indeed, hearts die and come back to life. If it dies, then carry it upon the obligatory duties, and if it comes back to life, then discipline it with voluntary acts."
[Imam Ahmad's 'Al-Zuhd', P. 233]
A believer treats a sin as if it is a mountain over his head that may fall on him any moment. Whereas a regular violator looks at them as a fly that perked on his nose and he waived it away with his hand.
Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه reported:
I heard the Messenger of Allah saying:
"There is a Surah in the Qur'an which contains thirty Ayat which kept interceding for a man until his sins are forgiven.
This Surah is 'Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion.'
[Surah Mulk 67].''
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah said:
"Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:
'I am so self-sufficient that I am in no need of having an associate. Thus he who does an action for someone else's sake as well as Mine will have that action renounced by Me to him whom he associated with Me."
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Prophet said:
"Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:
'I am as My servant thinks I am (1). I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm's length, I draw near to him a fathom's length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed."
(1) Another possible rendering of the Arabic is: 'I am as My servant expects Me to be.' The meaning is that forgiveness and acceptance of repentance by the Almighty is subject to His servant truly believing that He is forgiving and merciful. However, not to accompany such belief with right action would be to mock the Almighty.
[Bukhari (also by Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn-Majah).]
Upon the authority of Ibn Umar -Radhiyallahu 'Anhumaa -who said that the Messenger - Sallallahu 'Alaihi Was Salam Said:
"Purify these Bodies (of yours), May Allah grant you purity, for indeed there is not a servant that spends the night in a state of purification except that an angel spends the night with him in his garment. He does not turn at anytime during the night except that the angel says: "Oh Allah forgive your servant for indeed he spent the night in a state of purity!"

This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
