I'm 18 years old and I seek advice on a sin I committed few years back and want to do tauba.

I was in around 9th standard and just entered my adulthood (baligh), after iftaar in ramadhan. In my room, I was sitting with a neighbour's daughter 4 years old and kissed her on her neck three or four times with bad intentions. I can still remember it today and I am depressed and embarrassed. How can I make amends for this? Is it "kaffara"?


During the time of the prophet (saw), a man came to him to ask about the exact same problem. That event is described in the following narration:

Ibn Mas'ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

A man kissed a woman. So he came to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and informed him about it. Then Allah revealed this Ayah: "And perform the Salat, between the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night. Verily, the good deeds efface the evil deeds (i.e., minor sins)." (11:114) The man asked the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) whether this applies to him only. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "It applies to all of my Ummah."

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
