I am a little alarmed that you are panicking about "sins" you made as a child!
What kind of monster do you think God is?
First of all, a sin is only a sin if you intended to make that sin, knowing what you were doing, which can hardly apply to your recent misfortune, least of all when you were a child. Innama al a3malou bin-nyiate : the deeds require ...
The process of repentance does not differ significantly based on the sin. There are two aspects to tawba (repentance):
Both the methodology and the conditions are identical, save for an additional step that is required when tawba is related to a matter that concerns the rights of other people (i.e., managing worldly consequences as ...
There is a hadith with very similar wording in Sunan Ibn Majah, the Book of Zuhd, out of which a quote is provided below:
عَنِ ابْنِ مَعْقِلٍ قَالَ: دَخَلْتُ مَعَ أَبِي عَلَى عَبْدِ اللَّهِ فَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ: النَّدَمُ تَوْبَةٌ
It was narrated that Ibn Ma'qil said: I entered with my father upon 'Abdullah, and I heard ...
This is two sins. One is the original sin and another is minimizing God position. A real believer does not minimize the value of God by such plan.
Also this is a deception from Satan to catch believers. By this deception, humans commit more and more sins by planning to ask forgiveness later. This period keeps extending and becomes harder and harder after ...
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَغْفِرُ أَن يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ
ذَٰلِكَ لِمَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ افْتَرَىٰ
Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him,
but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who
associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous
My dear friend, don't worry. In Islam there's no restriction of repenting within 3 days. A person can repent until he reaches the state of Naza’, (just before death, when he sees angles coming to take out his soul). In fact, Allah not only forgives the one who repents, but also loves those who asks for forgiveness from Allah.
In Surah-e-Az-Zumar, verse #53 ...
Praise be to Allah.
Al-Bukhaari (6491) and Muslim (131) narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, relating from his Lord, may He be glorified and exalted: “Allah decreed good deeds and bad deeds, then He explained that. Whoever thinks of doing a good deed then does not do it, ...
Whether your deeds are accepted now, or were ever accepted before, or will remain accepted till you die is a question that Allah, and only Allah knows. No human can judge on the specificity of your situation based on their own knowledge alone.
Having said that, the hadith you are referring to is a hadith that is narrated in Sunan Ibn Mājah as a good (hassan)...
The first thing you need to bare in mind is that Allah is the most forgiving and he is capable of forgiving any sin as long as repentance was a sincere one:
Truly, Allah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves
those who purify themselves. [Quran, 2:222]
Although sincere repentance may cause your sins to be forgiven, it isn't an easy task ...
Yes, the Prophet said, الندم توبة (regret is repentance).
The source is Ibn Majah (4252).
(Read here for full hadith and narrators).
It is also recorded in the book of Ahmad.
It is said to be authentic. It is included in Sahih Al Jaami.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
As you all probably know, lie is considered as a haram (forbidden) deed. As you pointed out regarding Tu’bah, the best way is repentance concerning that to make it up for the your previous mistakes.
As a brief answer for your constructive question as you asked
How can he repent? Does he need to ...
You don't become Kafir by breaking a promise...
You become kafir when you declare there is no Allah and Muhammad is not the Slave and Messenger of Allah... (ASTAGFURALLAH!)
This world is a trial. Allah tests us in this world. Sometimes we fail and sometimes we Pass our tests. But When we fail, we should not loose hope in the Mercy of Allah!
Allah is the ...
Your main question seems to be whether Allah knows the future or not, and the simple answer to that is, of course, yes He does. Allah says in the Qur'an
Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the ...
Although your sin as what you stated is considered as a major sin, but you ought to pay attention that Allah is Tavvab. In other word, it means He will accept the repentance. In the meantime, don’t forget that according to a verse of the holy Qur'an:
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا
تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّـهِ ۚ إِنَّ ...
If someone leaves Islam, either for a short of a long period of time, and later wants to come back and repent, what are the necessary steps?
Only repentance and saying Shahada again is enough. Allah forgives all sins if the believer repents:
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا
تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ ...
In Islam rights are in two main category:
1- The rights of God, like prayer, fasting,... (that have no relation to other people)
2- The rights of people. like stealing, cheating, riba,...
The kaffare of the 2nd right is returning the lost right. It is better to be backed in its current value. And there is no need for you to explain him what the money that ...
We know that all people will make mistakes now and then, and commit sins here and there. We are to repent to Allah and ask for forgiveness, feel regret and to resolve within our selves to not go back to the sin. We believe that God will forgive all sins, except for committing shirk.
Is it as if the sin never occurred?
We believe that Allah is very ...
First of all committing sins is rather human and there's no reason why you should punish yourself or harm yourself for a sin you've committed and repented from. Especially if you did all your best to relocate what you've done wrong.
Allah the almighty says:
Do they not know that it is Allah who accepts repentance from His servants and receives charities ...
First of all the sin you've both committed is among the worst you may do and the fact that you feel ashamed is a good sign as it means both of you still have faith and know that Allah sees us while we can't see Him.
Also note that the sin you've committed has two parts, one that you need to repent from from Allah and this needs sincere repentance: sincerely ...
Everybody sins from time to time
Yes. to some extent at least. OK. Let's assume so. (Note: Shia's consider the infallible people whom they consider so are free from sin, so let's talk about people who are not those).
When we discover that we have sinned
Yeah, you mean realize that you did something wrong, yes then,
is there any way to make up for ...
As a general Islamic rule, (even if you stole something before the age of puberty), a person who has stolen something, he/she is Zamen (responsible) for the thing that has stolen. Actually he ought to give back it to its owner. In the case that the thing (money or...) has missed, it ought to be given to them at the same amount of the thing which has been ...
Of course you can. Doesn't matter if you were a Muslim or non-Muslim, you can always repent.
What is to become a Muslim? It is accepting the existence and oneness of God and Mohammad(puh) as Allah's messenger to teach us about Allah and his orders. If you truely believe as this, and if you say it loudly (at least to yourself), you will become a Muslim.
No it's not true. You can ask for forgiveness once and that can be good enough.
There's no specific number mentioned. May be the person who told you about the 100 times a day thing mixed it with a hadith of the Prophet =
"A cloudiness comes over my heart, I seek forgiveness from Allah a
hundred times a day."
First of all, good question. I think many of us have pondered about this at some point in his or her life, myself included.
We may see as though people 'enjoy committing the haram', but in reality anything haram is a poison for the soul. There is a hadith that says every time we commit sin, a black spot appears on our heart.
Abu Hurairah (raa) narrated: ...
If you did not know then it is not a sin and you will be forgiven. However it is must for you to learn about things, know things, understand them and now that you know you should never do it again. Ask for forgiveness from Allah, He is the most Merciful.
Allah knows best.
The following is my understanding of the issue based on Quran and
God knows best.
Quran verse 17:32 states that "do not get close to zina".
What you describe falls under it as is a sin.
The punishment in hereafter for haram actions are up to God.
A person might repent to God and God may forgive it.
The punishment by society generally only apply
if the ...
