Attitudes and phrases from the tawbah person are easily recognizing. He will always maintaining his attitudes and words soften to avoid others feeling. It is different from those who are not undergo the tawbah, yet, their communication will sounds rough and selfish without thinking the others feeling.
Allah SWT will always guide His ummat to always protect their manner and utterance when communicating with others.
