Anas bin Malik Al-Ansari (MayAllah be p Our hadith of the day; Repentance★ leased with him) the servant of the Messenger of Allah narrated: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Verily, Allah is more delighted with the repentance of His slave than a person who lost his

camel in a desert land and then finds it (unexpectedly)”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Scholars said: it is necessary to repent from every sin. Of the offense involves the Right of Allah, not a human, then there are three condition to be met in order that repentance be accepted by Allah:
1. To desist from committing it.
2. To feel sorry  for commiting it.
3. To decide not to recommit it.
Any repentance failing to meet any of these three conditions, would not be
sound. But if the sin involves a human’s right, it requires a 4th condition I.e to absolve oneself from such right. If it is a property, he should return it to its rightful owner. If it is slandering  or backbiting, one should ask the pardon of the offended.
[Riyadh-us Saaliheen
Book 01, Chapter 02, Hadith 15]
