Imam Baqir (as) said “There is no servant except that there exists a white spot upon his heart. So when he commits a sin a black spot arises into that white spot. So when he repents this black spot moves away. And if he continues on committing sins the blackness of this spot increases till such time it overwhelms and over rides the whiteness. When the whiteness is covered over (by the blackness) the owner of it (heart) does never at all return towards beneficence and goodness. And this is what Allah means when he says: ‘Nay! rather, what they used to do has become like a rust upon their hearts.[1][i]
