Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 220

Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 232

“One who repents a year before his death, Allah will forgive him.” Then he said, “A year is too much; Allah will forgive even one who repents a month before his death.” Then he said, “A month is also too much, Allah will forgive even one who repents a day before his death.

Sawab al-A`amal, Page 232
