Abdullaah ibn Shaqeeq said:
Men are [of] three [types]:
A man who does a good deed, and then hopes for, and anticipates its reward.
And a man who does an evil deed, then repents and hopes for, and anticipates forgiveness.
And the third [type of] man – a persistent liar who persists upon sin and says I hope for, and anticipate forgiveness.
So he who knows himself to be upon evil, then it is befitting for his fear and apprehension to predominate his hope and anticipation.
