Remorse over Sins: A Sign of Acceptance
The Mashaa’ikh have mentioned that the person who has some poison enter his stomach and then he vomits it out, then understand that this person will become well. Similarly, the person who commits sin and and feels regret and remorse in his heart and cries and repents, then understand that this person has vomited the sin out of his body. He prays two rak’ats o f Salat ut Taubah and cries in front of Allah, indicating that he had no affinity towards the sin. This is a major sign of acceptance in the court of Allah.
