Yahya ibn Ma’adh (RA) said, “In my opinion, the worst kind of self-delusion
for someone to sin excessively and then to hope for forgiveness without feeling any remorse;
or it is to expect to draw near to Allah, the Exalted, without obeying or worshipping Him;
or it is to hope for the fruits of the Garden after having only planted the seeds for the Fire;
or it is to seek the abode of the obedient through committing wrong actions;
or it is to expect a reward after having done nothing worthwhile
or it is to place hope in Allah, Glorious and Mighty is He, after having exceeded all the limits”.
