What should the sinful do?

As for the sins, Al-'Abd should not be sinful, but if he does sin he should ask forgiveness and should repent. He should repent from the faults and should be patient with the calamities. Allah Ta'aala said:

So be patient (O Muhammad SAAWS). Verily the Promise of Allah is true, and ask forgiveness for your fault. [Al-Moo-min:55]

But if you remain patient and pious, not the least harm will their cunning do to you. [Aal 'Imraan: 120];

But if you persevere patiently and ward off evil. Indeed, these are the things which you should hold fast to. [Aal 'Imraan:186];

and Yoosuf (AS) said:

Verily, he who fears Allah and is patient, then surely Allah makes not the reward of the good-doers to be lost. [Yoosuf:90]
