  • @medi-saif Can you give me more details? I still didn't understand it. Will I still be able to enter Jannah if I sulk?

  • Well if sulking is your only "sin" why shouldn't that be possible?

  • @medi-saif, I have committed a lot of sins, plus, am I thinking wrong when they said that two people will leave Islam if they don't have a peace between them for more than 2 days?

    @HüdaverdiAlperenDemirok one should not disclose his sin in public it is considered a bigger sin in Islam and Mash Allah if you are ashamed and have made tawbah sincerely then you are pure.

There could be some points which you ought to pay heed to, among:

  • Every sin has its specific punishment and as much as I know, Allah has not mentioned the punishment of all of them or at least most of them. On the other hand, on the whole, Allah has named them as the means of going to the hell.
  • Secondly, as @servant mentioned in his comment

Mash Allah if you are ashamed and have made tawbah sincerely then you are pure.

Then as Allah said, He will forgive us in case of real repentance. Therefore you'll be pure (at least from this sin) if you do Tawbah (repent).
