You find Him vast in forgiveness:
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Indeed, your Lord is vast in forgiveness.}[An-Najm: 32]
 
He The Exalted, moreover, forgives all sins:
 Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allaah. Indeed, Allaah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”}[Az-Zumar: 53]
 
 Allaah The Almighty stretches out His hand to forgive the sinners.
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah The Almighty spreads out His hand at night to accept the repentance of the one who sinned during the day, and He spreads out His hand by day to accept the repentance of the one who sinned during the night, (and that will continue) until the sun rises from the west.”[1]
 
He The Exalted also rejoices over the repentance of His slaves:
 It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah rejoices more over the repentance of His slave than any one of you who finds his camel after having lost it in a desolate land.”[2]
 
He The Exalted loves those who are constantly repentant:
 Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Indeed, Allaah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.}[Al-Baqarah: 222]
 
He The Exalted replaces the evil deeds with good ones. Allaah The Almighty says:
{Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allaah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allaah Forgiving and Merciful.} [Al-Furqaan: 70]
 
 
 
He The Exalted conceals in the worldly life and forgives in the Hereafter
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “One of you will come close to his Lord till He will shelter him in His screen and say: Did you commit such-and-such sin? He will say, 'Yes.' Then Allaah will say: Did you commit such and such sin? He will say, 'Yes.' So Allaah will make him confess (all his sins) and He will say, 'I screened them (your sins) for you in the world, and today I forgive them for you.”[3]
