Being Certain that Repentance is Accepted

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a person repents and feels that he has fulfilled all the conditions of repentance, can he be sure that his repentance has been accepted, or should he just hope that this is so?

Praise be to Allah

We put the following question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allah preserve him, who answered as follows:

No, he can only hope that this is so. No one can be sure that his repentance has been accepted.

And Allah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
