Sura Al-Taubah from 100 to 106

100. And the foremost to embrace Islâm of the Muhâjirûn ( those who migrated from Makkah to Al- Madinah ) and the Ansâr ( the citizens of Al- Madinah who helped and gave aid to the Muhâjirûn ) and also those who followed them exactly ( in Faith ) . Allâh is well- pleased with them as they are well- pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow ( Paradise ) , to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success.
101. And among the bedouins around you, some are hypocrites, and so are some among the people of Al- Madinah who persist in hypocrisy; you ( O Muhammad ( saas ) ) know them not, We know them. We shall punish them twice, and thereafter they shall be brought back to a great ( horrible ) torment.
102. And ( there are ) others who have acknowledged their sins, they have mixed a deed that was righteous with another that was evil. Perhaps Allâh will turn unto them in forgiveness. Surely, Allâh is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful. [ 1 ]
103. Take Sadaqah ( alms ) from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it, and invoke Allâh for them. Verily! Your invocations are a source of security for them; and Allâh is All- Hearer, All- Knower.
104. Know they not that Allâh accepts repentance from His slaves and takes the Sadaqât ( alms, charity ) , and that Allâh Alone is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful?
105. And say ( O Muhammad ( saas ) ) « Do deeds! Allâh will see your deeds, and ( so will ) His Messenger and the believers. And you will be brought back to the All- Knower of the unseen and the seen. Then He will inform you of what you used to do. »
106. And others are made to await for Allâh’s Decree, whether He will punish them or will forgive them. And Allâh is All- Knowing, All- Wise.

[1] (V.9:102) The Statement of Allâh (Lord Almighty and Exalted) : "And (there are) others who have acknowledged their sins..." (V.9:102)
Narrated Samurah bin Jundub ( raa ) : Allâh’s Messenger ( saas ) said, « Tonight two ( visitors ) came to me ( in my dream ) and took me to a town built with gold bricks and silver bricks. There, we met men who, ( by ) half of their bodies looked like the most handsome human beings you have ever seen, and ( by ) the other half, the ugliest human beings you have ever seen. Those two visitors said to those men: ‘Go and dip yourselves in that river.’ So they dipped themselves therein and then came to us, their ugliness having disappeared and they were in the most handsome shape. The visitors said, ‘This is the ‘Adn Paradise, and that is your dwelling place.’ Then they added, ‘As for those people who were half ugly and half handsome, they were those who have mixed deeds that were good with deeds that were evil, but Allâh forgave them.’ » ( Sahih Al- Bukhari, Vol.6, Hadith No.196 ) .
