Some of them repent entirely from their existence, because if man sees that he has existence by his own then he committed polytheism in the Unity of Allah. We obtain power, life, ability, will and knowledge from Him, were it not for this, one couldn’t do anything less or more by himself or his body.
So it is narrated that one of the righteous men entered the space of God's bounty, he found his brothers who work hard as worshippers seeing themselves better than the others, he stood among them at the time of calling to start prayers and said loudly to let them hear the reality:
"By You and for You I start prayers"
By You, means by Your power, Your support and Your guidance I do the prayers for You. Imam Abul-Aza'em said in this respect:
"I knew myself that I was nothing, so I became nothing for myself and inside all of me. By Him I am living now, by Him is my existence, my support and my power. Who am I? Nothing, beautified by Allah, so I became His highest model without any effort."
There are people who repent from their good deeds, there are others repent from their existence and there are others who repent from their presence.
