I broke a promise to Allah

As-salamu alaykum,

I 20 years old girl, I made a major sin, now I am afraid Allah, will never forgive me. I promise putting my hand on my heart that I will never do that since, till I my heart will beat, but now I broke it :'( I am afraid of dying, what if my heart stops because I promised on my heart, like I said. What can I do ? Plus I sinned in the Holy Month of Ramadan. I am already suffering from GERD ( stomach disease) and others health conditions. I suffer from anxiety disorders too. I think Allah is going to punish me, I am so scared, I am not a good person at all. Allah has bless me with everything, still I do sins, I hate myself, I want to live so I can change myself, but I am afraid Allah will not give me a chance anymore, because I broken it so many times. What can I do now ?

  1. You should realize that what you have heard about repentance, prayer and fasting not being accepted from one who has committed major sins is false, and it is speaking about Allah without knowledge. There is a great deal of evidence in the Book of Allah and the sunnah (teaching) of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to indicate that Allah accepts His slave’s repentance from all sins, no matter how great they are, and it is not permissible for anyone to try to stop a person repenting, no matter how great and how heinous his sins.

    Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Say: O ‘Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

    [39:53]

    Allah says, stating that He forgives the greatest of sins (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such a person as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.

    The torment will be doubled for him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;

    Except those who repent and believe (in Islamic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds; for those, Allah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allah is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

    [25:68-70]

    This clearly indicates that Allah forgives all sins – even shirk – and it tells us of an immense bounty, which is that bad deeds are turned to good deeds.

    Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

    No sin is too great for Allah to forgive for the one who repents, rather He forgives shirk and other sins for those who repent, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Say: O ‘Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

    [39:53]

    This verse is general in meaning because it is addressed to all those who repent

  2. Al-Tirmidhi narrated that Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say: “Allah, may He be blessed and exalted, said: ‘O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you and I would not mind.’” [Saheeh al-Tirmidhi]

    Ibn Majah narrated that ‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The one who repents from sin is like one who did not sin.” [Saheeh Ibn Majah]

    These verses and hadeeths (prophetic traditions) indicate that Allah forgives all sins, no matter how great or how many, for the one who repents to Him.

    So strive in worship and obedience, regret the negligence and sins of the past, and note that Allah has no need of His slaves yet despite that He rejoices in their repentance, and even turns their bad deeds into good deeds.

    We ask Allah to help you to remember Him, give thanks to Him and worship Him properly.

    And Allah knows best.

  3. Stop torturing yourself.

  4. Salaam,

    Seriously?! you are worried about GERD. That is basically heartburn.
    I understand anxiety can be a little bothersome but there are ppl in this world who dont know if they will live anymore with
    disease, or are suffering from many other things like depression.

    Please evaluate yourself and be grateful. Allah doesnt like those who are ungrateful!

    • Chronic heartburn can cause pain, coughing, vomiting, and degradation of the esophagus and stomach lining. So please don't mock the sister or minimize her distress. Offer constructive advice rather than criticism.

    • Only the sufferer knows what they suffer. It is not your place to judge. Yes we should all be grateful for Allah's bounties and there will always be those who are worse off than us. But if you cannot be nice, it is better to keep quiet. We are all on this site seeking comfort and understanding. Please be kind.

  5. (1) allah is not going to kill you.
    (2) You broke promise so your progress will be stopped, and you will face problems more because u did sin in Ramadhan Month.
    (3) Observe as much fasts as you can, sacrifice animals for Allah and distribute among living beings to eat.
    (4) start salah (namaz prayer) specially tahajud prayer and seek forgiveness from Allah.
