Signs of Accepted Repentance⁣

We all do so much sins. And of course we do so much repentance also.

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

 بَنِي آدَمَ خَطَّاءٌ وَخَيْرُ الْخَطَّائِينَ التَّوَّابُونَ

“Every son of Adam commits sin, and the best of those who commit sin are those who repent’” [at Tirmidhi. Shaikh al Albani says this hadith is hasan].

But how do we know that our repentance is accepted by Allah?

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said,⁣

When a person repents sincerely and Allah accepts it, He will raise him in status until he becomes greater than he was before, as one of the early generations said: If repentance were not the dearest of things to Him, He would not test with sin the dearest of people to Him.⁣

[Majmoo‘ al-Fataawa, 10/293]⁣.
