Does Allah forgive zina? With a unmarried man and unmarried woman?

I assume so because Allah is Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim

Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." (39:53)


Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Allah, the Exalted, has said: 'O son of Adam, I forgive you as long as you pray to Me and hope for My forgiveness, whatever sins you have committed. O son of 'Adam, I do not care if your sins reach the height of the heaven, then you ask for my forgiveness, I would forgive you..." (Al-Tirmidhi)

As Allah says, he forgives all sins provided you repent, realize that you have done a sin, and never do it again.
