Chapter Three deals with Remorse, the Requisites and the Permanent nature of Tawbah.
Chapter Four deals with persistence in Sins, its causes and its remedy in Tawbah.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah's view of the Ihya' : "....the Ihya' contains the teachings of numerous illuminated mentors and mystics and their experiences in regard to the purification of[the] self and the intuitive knowledge ,which are identical with canons of the Qur'an and Sunnah...."
