Ibn Rajab, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “It is not right for morning or evening to come upon a believer except that he is in a state of repentance, because he does not know when death might surprise him. [Will it be] in the morning or the evening? Or will his soul be taken when he is performing an act of obedience or disobedience? So whoever comes upon morning or evening not in a state of repentance then he is in danger, since it is feared that he will meet Allaah not repenting and thus be gathered alongside the company of oppressors.”
Lataa’iful-Ma’aarif, p. 458.

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Turning back to Allaah is by feeling remorseful at what one has done, and wishing one hadn’t done the sin, and by resolving not to go back to it in the future—it is not a condition that a person doesn’t do that sin again, the condition is that he resolves not to go back to it—then if it does so happen that his soul entices him and he does it again, his initial repentance for that earlier sin is sound, but he must repent afresh from the following sin which he has just committed.”

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Be aware of the fact that when you ask Allaah you are a winner in every situation, because He سبحانه will either give you what you ask for or divert an evil which is greater [than what you asked for] away from you or He will store it away for you as reward on the Day of Resurrection. So whoever supplicates to Allaah then he will not be let down—so supplicate to Him a great deal, and seek forgiveness and turn in repentance to Him a great deal.”
Sharh Riyadis-Saalihin, vol. 6, p. 52.
