What Is Tawbah?

Al Salamu 'Alaykum.

Sayyiduna 'Ali(ra) was asked as to what is 'taubah' and he replied that it consists of six elements:

1. To regret one's past evil deeds.

2. To carry out divine duties that were missed.

3. To restore the rights that were usurped.

4. To ask forgiveness of a person who has been wronged by him physically or verbally.

5. To make a firm resolve of avoiding that sin in future.

6. To consume one's self in obedience of Allah as one thus far consumed one's self in his disobedience.
