Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Abu Umamah (Radiallahu Anhu) narrates that (Nabi Sallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) is reported to have said; Verily the Angel at the left of a person (the Angel in charge of writing the sins of a person) withholds from writing his sinful deed committed for a period six hours. If (during this time) he regrets his sin and repents, the Angel then discards (does not write) his sin committed. (However if he does not regret his sin and repent) the Angel then records his sin committed.

عن أبي أمامة عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم قال : إن صاحب الشمال ليرفع القلم ست ساعات عن العبد المسلم المخطئ أو المسيء فإن ندم واستغفر منها ألقاها وإلا كتبت واحدة

(Majma’u Al-Zawaid, Vol.10, Pg. 207-208, Maktaba Al-Qudsi)
