The Details of the Question
Is the repentance of a person who falls into unbelief knowingly or unknowingly several times accepted – unless he is about to die?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

“Allah forgiveth not (the sin of) joining other gods with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this..." (an-Nisa, 4/116)

It is stated that in the verse above that any sins can be forgiven. The shirk that Allah will never forgive is the shirk of those who die without repenting. Accordingly, any repentance before death is valid.

"Say: "O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (az-Zumar, 39/53)

As a matter of fact, it is stated in the verse above that any repentance will be accepted.
