Refusing to making taubah


The fuqahaa have sternly warned against a person who after being encouraged to make taubah replies, “Why must I make taubah? What sin have I committed?”

I am unable to even say such words. (I feel that the fuqahaa have issued such stern warning because when a person says, “What wrong have I committed?” he is actually implying that he is sinless, whereas Nabi  has stated: كل بني آدم خطاء و خير الخطائين التوابون [Every person is a sinner and the best sinner is he who makes taubah.] With the exception of the ambiyaa, every human is capable of sinning. This person has refuted this Hadith by his statement which is not something trivial. Instead it is a very serious matter.)
