Sh. Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: “As for him saying ‘Astaghfirullāh’ with his tongue but persisting upon sins/disobedience with his actions, then he is a liar (and) his Istighfār will not benefit him,

as Fuḍayl b. ‘Iyāḍ said: ‘Seeking Allāh’s Forgiveness while not abandoning (sins) is the repentance of liars’.”
