Hadith on Tawbah: Embracing Islam plus good deeds

Abu Tawil reported: He came to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “What do you think of a man who commits every sin, leaving nothing of them. Is there repentance for him?” The Prophet said, “Have you embraced Islam?” He said, “As for me, I testify there is no God but Allah, along without any partners, and that you are the Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “Yes, perform good deeds and leave evil deeds, then Allah will turn all of them into good deeds for you.” He said, “And my treachery and wickedness?” The Prophet said, “Yes.” He said, “Allah is the greatest!” He continued exalting Allah until he disappeared from view.

عَنْ أَبِي طَوِيلٍ شَطَبٍ الْمَمْدُودِ أَنَّهُ أَتَى رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ أَرَأَيْتَ رَجُلًا عَمِلَ الذُّنُوبَ كُلَّهَا فَلَمْ يَتْرُكْ مِنْهَا شَيْئًا فَهَلْ لَهُ مِنْ تَوْبَةٍ قَالَ فَهَلْ أَسْلَمْتَ قَالَ أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّكَ رَسُولُ اللهِ قَالَ نَعَمْ تَفْعَلُ الْخَيْرَاتِ وَتَتْرُكُ السَّيِّئَاتِ فَيَجْعَلُهُنَّ اللهُ لَكَ خَيْرَاتٍ كُلَّهُنَّ قَالَ وَغَدَرَاتِي وَفَجَرَاتِي قَالَ نَعَمْ قَالَ اللهُ أَكْبَرُ فَمَا زَالَ يُكَبِّرُ حَتَّى تَوَارَى
