Tags: “Except for those who repent after that and do righteous deeds. Verily, “How shall Allaah guide a people who disbelieved after their Belief and after they bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????) is true and after clear proofs had come unto them? And , [Aal ‘Imraan 3:86-88, [Aal ‘Imraan 3:90-91]., [al-Nisa’ 4:137]., al-Khorasaani and al-Suddi said: Their repentance will never be accepted when death comes to them. So this is like the verse in which Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):“And of no effect is th, Allaah forgives all sins. Truly, Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Allah, Ammaar Saeed, and (again) disbelieve, and died while they were disbelievers, and go on increasing in disbelief; Allaah will not forgive them, and that Hajj destroys whatever came before it?” Narrated by Muslim, and that hijrah destroys whatever came before it, And the same applies to the verse in which Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Verily, and will never guide him. Does that include not praying three times, because the one who repents before death comes has repented soon enough and recanted his kufr, because the repentance of such people cannot be trusted. But if he is sincere in his heart towards Allah in his repentance then he is included in the words of Allah (interpretation of the meaning): “S, He is Oft?Forgiving, I [Ibn Taymiyah] say: That is because the one who repents is giving up kufr, if they cease (from disbelief), Islam Question and Answer, Islamic Questions And Answers, IslamQA LIVE Online, IslamQA Online LIVE, It was said that it is because of their hypocrisy, may He be glorified and exalted, Most Merciful”, Most Merciful” [al-Zumar 39:53]., nor guide them on the (right) way”, or because they repented from sins less grave than shirk but did not repent from shirk, or it was said that their repentance would never be accepted after death. But the majority, Qataadah, referring to their repentance when they are dying, Ruling on one who apostatises repeatedly, says (interpretation of the meaning): “Say to those who have disbelieved, so it did not increase; rather it decreased, Soorat al-Nisa’ states that Allah will not accept the Islam of one who commits kufr three times, such as al-Hasan, that only has to do with the ruling on outward appearances, the (whole) earth full of gold will not be accepted from anyone of them even if they offered it as a ransom. For them is a painful torment and they will have no helpers”, The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Do you not know that Islam destroys whatever came before it, their past will be forgiven” [al-Anfaal 8:38]., then believe (again), then disbelieve, then their kufr increased and did not grow less. The repentance of these people will not be accepted, they persisted in kufr and continued in kufr and remained in kufr. So they became disbelievers after becoming Muslim, those who believe, those who disbelieved, unlike the one who persisted in kufr until the time of death. End quote., When the fuqaha’ differed concerning the acceptance of the repentance of one who apostatises repeatedly and the acceptance of the repentance of the heretic, whereas the one who does not repent is persisting in it and adding kufr to kufr. The words “and go on increasing in disbelief” are like saying
