What is the decree of Quran about the people who exploit religion?
Islam does not let any body or any group to represent the religion, thus, it is not to anyone’s right to take the initiative. As a matter of fact, Qur’an has brought the decree of being responsible to God personally regardless of their status in the society.Islam does not let any body or any group to represent the religion, thus, it is not to anyones right to take the initiative.

Therefore, cravings of the (evil) self has restrained, the door of taubah-repentance and taking refuge in God has opened for the ones who wants to turn from their mistakes. So many verses in Quran induce repentance:
Say: "(God gives you hope): O My servants who have been wasteful (of their God-given opportunities and faculties) against (the good of) their own souls! Do not despair of Gods Mercy. Surely, God forgives all sins. He is indeed the All-Forgiving, the All-Compassionate. "Turn to your Lord in penitence and submit to Him wholly before the punishment comes upon you (when it will be too late, and acknowledgment of faith will no longer avail you); for after (that) you will not be helped. (Az-Zumar Surah, 39:53, 54)
When those who believe in all of Our Revelations and signs (whenever they come to them,) come to you, say in welcome: "Peace be upon you! Your Lord has bound Himself to mercy (to treat His servants with mercy) – so that if any of you does a bad deed due to ignorance (an instance of defeat to the evil-commanding soul), and thereafter repents and mends his way and conduct, surely He is All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate." (Al-Anam Surah, 6:54)
Yet whoever does an evil or wrongs himself (by committing sins to harm himself spiritually), and then implores God for forgiveness, will find God All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate. (An-Nisa Surah, 4:110)
