Because man is weak in resolve,
"...And Man was created weak."
"Allaah wishes to make clear to you and to
ways of those before you and accept your repentance
and Allaah is All-Knower, All Wise."
Abee Hamza Anas ibn Maalik al-Ansaaree
said that the Messenger of
Allaah () said:
Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of
servant than one of you who falls off his
and loses it in a baren desert land.
Thus, there is no duty upon you - O servant of Allaah -
except that you should make Allaah happy
with your repentance and bring happiness
to your own soul by its repenting to its Lord
and by standing upright before its Originator.
Conditions of Taubah are as
||Cessation of the
||Regret and remorse of
||Firm resolve not to
return to the sin.
Returning the right of the oppressed,
in that which is
particular to the rights of man.
There is no servant who commits a sin and then
purifies himself (wudoo') and then prays two rakaahs
and then seeks forgiveness of Allaah except that
Allaah forgives him.

Taken from THE THREE ABANONED PRAYERS by
Shaykh 'Adnaan Aali 'Uroor
Hadith - Bukhari 8.800B, Narrated Ikrima from Ibn Abbas
Allah's Apostle said, "When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual
intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he
steals, he is not a believer at the time of stealing; and if he drinks an
alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and
he is not a believer when he commits a murder." 'Ikrima said: I asked Ibn
Abbas, "How is faith taken away from him?" He said, Like this," by clasping
his hands and then separating them, and added, "But if he repents, faith
returns to him like this," by clasping his hands again.
A named condition for the forgiveness of Allah (swt) is the returning
to obedience in the matter...
The Noble Qur'an - Az-Zumar 39:54
And turn in repentance and in obedience with true Faith (Islâmic
Monotheism) to your Lord and submit to Him, (in Islâm), before the
torment comes upon you, then you will not be helped.
The Noble Qur'an - An-Nisa 4:17-18
Allâh accepts only the repentance of those who
do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent soon afterwards; it is they
to whom Allâh will forgive and Allâh is Ever AllKnower,
And of no effect is the repentance of those who continue
to do evil deeds until death faces one of them and he says: "Now I repent;"
nor of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared
a painful torment.
