False Repentance and Its Effect on the Heart

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

From having a hard heart is your making a repentance that’s only on the tongue or your putting on a show of regret [that you don’t actually feel], while you’re determined [deep-down] to engage in that sin afterwards.

This stage [that you’ve reached] is from hard-heartedness–we ask Allāh to protect us from [ever reaching] it.
