What are the effects of sins and repentance?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: Make yourselves smell nice by repenting, in order that the smell of sins does not disgrace you [1]. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) did not stand up and leave a gathering unless he repented 25 times [2]. It is also narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: A person who gets into difficulty and hardship in life, recite “Astaqferullah Rabbi wa Atoobu Elay’h (I ask forgiveness from Allah (SWT) and I return to God)” thirty thousand times before moving from his/her place; Divine Relief and Mercy will come to him/her [3]. In another narration, Imam Ali (AS) said: Repentance will increase the sustenance [4]. The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) also said: The one who repents a lot, god will show him/her a way out from any grief, and will grant an exit (solution) from any hardship, and will be given sustenance from a place that never expected [5].
