[Sometime ago] I stole about five car covers, and after I had repented [from doing so], I felt remorse about what I had done. I felt this remorse was of no benefit to me, so I began to wish for my hands to be cut-off! [So] before I do this, guide me [to that which is correct regarding my situation], and may Allaah reward you?
