Excessive Repentance

مُنِيبِينَ إِلَيْهِ وَاتَّقُوهُ وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَلَا تَكُونُوا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ

[Adhere to it], turning in repentance to Him, and fear Him and establish prayer and do not be of those who associate others with Allah (ar-Rum: 31)

Whenever you find yourself making mistakes and going off track, immediately turn back to Allah and start making a lot of Istighfar.

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “The angel on the left holds his pen from (recording) the sin of a Muslim for six hours. If he regrets and asks Allah for forgiveness, he casts it aside (i.e., he does not record it), otherwise he records it as one sin.” [Mu’jam at-Tabarāni al-Kabīr]

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Allah says, ‘O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you’.” [Sahih Muslim]

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ُ”Regret is repentance.” [Al Mustadrak Lil Hākim]

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “He who likes his Register to please him should make a lot of Istighfar.” [Al Mu’jam Al Awsat Lit-Tabarāni]َُ

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Good news for the one who found a lot of Istighfar in his book of deeds.” [Ibn Mājah]
