What is the meaning of the word Toba? And both in general terms, I want to know it. And in the Islamic context, please. The Arabic word Toba literally means

00:00:15--> 00:00:52

to return or to come back. And in the Islamic context in the Sharia, it means a person who lives the things which ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has privated and he returns back to the things which Allah subhanaw taala has commanded.
