Shaykh Ubayd Al-Jaabiree said, “Repenting from innovation is just like repenting from disobedience.
However, here I must mention that if the disobedience, whether it be innovation or other than it, is open then it is obligatory that he repent to Allaah openly and clarify that he was in error; if he called to this innovation, incited towards it, and enticed (the people) with it.
As I mentioned, the conditions for repentance from innovation are just as the conditions for repentance from disobedience. It is a must that there be (two matters):
Rectification of one’s condition.
Bayaan (clarification, making apparent); clarification of the truth which he had concealed or distorted.” Ref: ar.miraath.net
