Can a person who has violated others’ rights and has not been forgiven by them get the thawabs of his worship?

Dear Brother / Sister,
Other people’s rights and other sins do not invalidate a person’s deeds. However, they can decrease the virtues and blessings of those deeds. As a matter of fact, if a person performs worship with a body that has fewer sins, the virtues of his worship will increase more. If a person has committed a sin, he needs to repent and if he has violated others’ rights, he needs to ask for forgiveness.
