Islamic marriage advice and family advice

I commited zinaa. Now I want to repent, to live and die as a Muslim for the rest of my life

fornication adultery sin

I know I did this sin knowingly . . . Must I be stoned?

Assalamu Alaikum,

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

I have been reading lots of posts in this forum on the pornography. I was a victim of this. It was Shaithan's planned attack on me. I was fond of porn movies. After watching for several years one day it lead me to Zina the Major shameful sin. I had done this shameful act few times before my marriage. After doing this major sin i go and ask tawba from Allah & after time passes on my habbit of watching porn movies came & stick with me. I did not pray properly.

Later I got married, still i could not stop watching this shame. I got 02 kids & still i was watching it on a daily basis. Then i brought an IPhone which provies all types of ways to find zina & related stuff.

Some how it lead me to the sites of ESCORTS & i contacted them & was planed do this SIN. While going i changed my mind, fear of ALLAH. Then i directly went back home without performing this Sin. After few weeks again i was fingering on my phone and i called the same number & got an appointment. This time my heart was telling do not go but brain was forcing me to go for it. I performed the SIN.

The moment i am out from the environment i felt so bad & felt ashamed of me. Asked tawbah ( Still Asking ), started to pray 5 times also tahajath. Recite Quran and Read & trying to understand the Tarjuma. Also i got rid of the iPhone which lead me to this SIN. NOW I use the computer only for the purpose of mails & hearing bayans. Have completly stopped watching PORN.

I know i did this SIN knowingly that it is a SIN. But not aware of the Deepness of the SIN. After reading in Quran, Books & online forums like this, now I know i have performed the most SIN full act of all times which is on the level of murdering another human. Still i feel ashamed of my self & strongly believe & asking tawbah from Allah to clean my sins & guide me on the correct path until my death.

My Question to the forum is:

I have read in Al Quran & Hadith that if a Married person performed this SIN he should be stoned to death. Also i have read in Al Quran that who ever realises that he made a sin & Regrets, Ask tawbah, Completly stops from doing that sin again & fully believe in Allah that he will accepts the tawbah and forgive.

Do i still need to be punished infront of the Umma by stoned to death if i need to go to Paradise, if yes Then Why Allah says get away from the SIN completely & ask Tawbah.

NOTE: I am sorry if i have put the wordings wrongly. I had to tell you what happend to me & i want to change my self and people around me and live in the path that lead to paradise.

Allah knows everything & he knows what i intended to ask and clarify.

Please advice

  1. Your question is hair-raising. I think you need to forgive yourself and Allah will forgive you.You need then to get clean and continue your life.

  2. w salam
    u should pray 2 ALLAH.ALLAH will forgive u but never do this again.

  3. Gigi,

    It is untrue that stoning happens due to the paternity issue. In fact Zina is Haraam, one of the reasons being the paternity issue.

    The punishment of stoning was prescribed by Allah in order to emphasize on the seveority of the sin of adultery.

    No rule of Islam is out dated. No rule of Islam can be put behind the backs just by terming it "an old tradition". Stoning is very much applicable today, as it was during the time of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, IF Islamic Sharee'ah is followed in a particular state. It ensures that a person thinks a hundred times before even approaching the sin.

    Stoning is subject to some conditions that need to be fulfilled first. Only if the conditons are met the stoning is carried out. This rule will remain and is applicable until the Final Day.

    Yes, if one keeps it a secret and seeks Allah's Forgiveness, he or she can possibly get away with it. But it is a huge sin whatsoever to commit adultery or fornication.

    @dieasmuslim, I intend to write a reply to you, but a little later in sha Allah.

  4. Brother dieasmuslim, Assalamualaikum,

    This life is a test in which we fail and we pass. Sometimes we do major sins and make Allah Angry. But you should know that Allah Is The Most Just. He Is Just, even in His Punishment. His Wisdom Is unimaginable. If He made something Haraam, there is a reason behind it.

    Consider Zina by an unmarried person. It leads to immorality in the society and if a child is born, it messes up the lineage. When a married person commits Zina, it destroys families, messes up lineages even more than the former case, and spreads a greater immorality. This is why the punishment for a married person is greater in the Sharee'ah.

    The logic behind this is that a person who sees another being stoned will rarely go and do Zina.

    But for this, the country needs to be Islamic (which has implemented the Sharee'ah) and the judgement has to be given by the judge or the Qaadhi. It can not be done by just anybody or without any judicial proceeding (as this involves the final decision of the Qaadhi of that Islamic country)

    Islamic Sharee'ah is not applied in any country today, except Saudi Arabia (to a great extent if not completely. It can be a topic of debate in itself). So, the option you have is to keep your sin secret and not reveal it to anyone whatsoever, seek Allah's Forgiveness - this is the only hope.

    Allah Is The Most Merciful Lord. If He Wishes, He Will Forgive you. It is upon you to convince your Lord. But remember that He Is The Most Merciful and He Loves you. Cry to Him for your sins and seek His Forgiveness. In sha Allah He Will Forgive you.

    And never repeat this sin in your life. Never listen to the Shaitaan when he calls you to this evil sin. He will leave you alone in the Aakhirah. Allah Says in Surah Ibrahim Aayah 22:

    And Shaitan (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: "Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allah (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.)."

    Never respond to the shaitan in this. Do tawbah to Allah with complete sincerity. Leave it immediately, feel guilty for it and cry to Allah for Forgiveness in the middle of the night. In sha Allah, Allah will Forgive you, and never return to it in your life.

    • Walaikumussalam

      Brother Wazeem & other contributers,

      Jazakallahu Hairan for your advice. Indeed Allah loves me. I am 100% sure about it. Thats the reason i believe he gave me the mindset to feel it to repent & get back to deen. What if when i was performing the sin the angel of death ( Israeel Alaihissalam ) had the schedule to pull my soul. Naoothu Billah. I would have been among the wrongdoers. May Allah Forgive me.

      Every day i thank Allah for giving me this opportunity to repent & become a practising muslim. And i have read that Allah's Mercy is More than his Anger. I strongly belive Insha Allah he will forgive all my sins. I am very clear with the path & i will never ever return to this or any other sins knowingly again.
      May allah show me the right path & protect me from shaithan & his tricks. Aameen.

      I have to point out one more thing here.

      I am a born muslim. I would say i am a muslim by chance / by name untill the last few weeks. Now i have realised where things went wrong. Thats my understanding & knowledege of Islam. Now i have started reading the Quran translation & getting the feel of it. Alhamdulillah. May allah expand my heart to learn & practise Islam to the fullest.

      I worry about my friends, youngsters in my home town, society. Now i can imagine like a documentry on the telivision how shaithan planned & slowly and steadily drag me to the sin. I do not want to blame any one except shaithan. but if i had the opportunity to learn & practise Islam from my young age i would not have done this. But again Allah knows the best & this was there in Lawhul Mahfool under my fate. I still ask dua from Allah to protect my friends & the youngsters who are fond of the Internet to get hidaya same as Allah gave me & guide them in good path. I really regret how our society is. We are born as muslims. Keep muslim names. But do not practise to the fullest.

      Most of the times i watch the videos of Muslim reverts on you tube & i feel thrilled & a little bit of jealasy to be frank because i have heard that as soon as a non muslim belives there is one GOD & thats Allah and believes that rasoolullah sallahu alaihiwasallam is the last & final messenger of Allah. Allah forgives all his sins & he will be just like a new born baby. In my case i am 30 years old. say i started doing sins from the age of 15. then I have SINNed for 15 years. I dont know how many millions. But Allah Knows the exact figure. I repent but i dont know if i convince Allah and i do not know that i have over comed my sins by my good deeds. I know performing HAJ will remove all the SINs and make the HAJI as a new born. But i dont know if i will be alive to perform my haj next year Insha allah. I am not incharge of my next breadth. Can you give me some advice on this as well with the explanation of the Al Quran & Hadees ? Its not that i am daubting on my tawbah I am very sure that allah will forgive me. I have read in Al Imran. I wanted to know & convince my self that what i am doing or the way i ask tawbah is correct. Because i can feel some times my level of Eeeman is very high & always thinking of my death & grave. Some times i feel & think on my family, job, etc... but at all times i do ask dua & tawbah or at least ' La illaha illa Anta Subhanaka, inni kuntu min adh-dhalimeen". Some times i feel the tawbah i did is not enough or not with very inner feeling. Some times i feel yes i really repent & cried. I am still like in early stages of studing the Quran just few suras after An- Nissa. I will definetly find the answers later when reading. But i need to urge to get the answer. So i can better satisfy my self on what i am doing is correct.

      Always i ask allah to increase my Eeman & Taqwa.

      Insha Allah i swear allah that i will learn his deen, practise in my own life, show to my children & family, then to my society if he gives me an opportunity. I am very clear in my path & i have the greatest target now set in my life. The Jannathul Firdowse.

      Its now My Life, My Decision & My Hearafter. I am very clear & firm about it. Alhamdulillah.

      Please remember me in your duas.

      A brother in Islam.

      • Your Tawbah seems good, but it is only upon Allah to Decide that. You have chosen Allah's Way. So why not learn it from the basics? And why not be equal to those who have all their sins forgiven?

        It is a benefit that everyone has that if Tawbah is done he or she is forgiven. A new Muslim is forgiven all of it on his or her Islam, because of having rejected all else but Allah's Deen. It is their ignorance before Islam that makes their Islam equal to their Tawbah, hence they are forgiven all their sins.

        We ae aware that Allah Is One and He Is Watching. For this reason, we need to do Tawbah for each and every sin we commit.

        Don't be jealous, but love them and spare no opportunity or teaching them what is right.

        I suggest you to learn the attributes of Allah and understand them. You can find a great booklet of Shaikh Nasir as Sa'di on "The Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah" online. I suggest you to read other books such as Kitab at Tawhid by Shaikh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab, and other books on Aqeedah by Shaikhs Bin Baaz, Ibn Uthaimin, Al Albani, and others of their likes. In sha Allah, you will find what you need in them and you will learn a lot, along with improving your conviction in Allah.

        If you know Urdu, you can find all of it in one website:

        And you are right, Allah Has Written on His Throne:

        My Mercy overpowers My Wrath

        So, rest assured and concentrate on improving your Aqeedah and learning as mich about Allah as Possible. Allah's Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has said that how much a person knows Allah, that much he will Fear Him.

        Hey hope your fine now it’s 2021 I hope your still alive
        How’s your life? Any updates? Have you preformed the

        hajj yet?

  5. As Salam Aa Laekum,

    Well, as Brother Wasim Pointed out that Muslim Jurists are of the opinion that the Punishment for Adultery for a married man/woman is 'Stoning to Death'. The condition for that is Shariah Law to be applicable in that country.

    His knowledge and your knowledge come from Hadith and hadith is something which is interpreted by the scholars of Islam. However, Stoning to death does not exist in the Quran. Period.
    In fact, I would go on to say that this poor scholarship from the erudite scholars of Islam.

    One needs to re-read the hadith and connect the dots where this Hadith is mentioned. The real story is like this:

    The Prophet was preaching Islam to the Jews. In a bid to gain their confidence, he was following their customs as per the Torah.
    Now , prophet used to fast with them in their way and used to follow their customs. This came as a surprise to them as they did not expect an Arab to practice their customs. The Judaic law is very harsh.

    Thus, Prophet used to fast with them from Sunset to Sunset. Hence, you could only eat once during the entire 24 hours. The Judaic law did not permit men to go into women after completion of fast. They were quite stringent fasts.

    Similarly, once Prophet was sitting with a group of Jews who were pleased with his following of Judaic Law. Two youth arrive who were charged with Adultery. The youth pleaded guilty for that crime. Thus, they asked Prophet how should they go about it. The Prophet answered: ' You should punish them as per your law".

    The Judaic Law for adultery is in Chapter 20, Book of Leviticus

    If a man shall lay with another man's wife, he has committed an abomination, it is an unclean thing. They shall surely be put to death. They shall stone them with stones.

    The Prophet accepted their law and permitted stoning to death. However, when the new law for fasting and Adultery arrived with the Quran they were incorporated.

    Thus, the punishment for Adultery/fFornication is :

    The woman and the man guilty of fornication-- flog each of them with 100 stripes. Let not compassion move you in their case it is a matter Prescribed by Allah..... ( Surah Nur, Chapter 24, Verse 2)

    Some sins are punishable as crimes. Allah has prescribed the punishment for sins in the Quran and not Hadith. The laws written in the Quran unequivocally say that no person has the right to take the life of another person unless for a just cause.

    That just cause is a murder of another person. Hence, the punishment of Adultery is not applicable.

    One of things, I want to put out straight to you is that you are penitent. Allah is the most forgiving and the merciful. Your repentance will come through and you shall be forgiven.

    If your aim to reach the heaven then refrain from doing this sin again. Stoning to death won't let you to paradise. Instead, you have to do righteous deeds and continue to follow Islam.

    Aafa Allahu Annka

    • Brother, there is not only this Hadith about stoning. There are numerous others.

      Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.806 Narrated by Abu Huraira
      A man came to Allah's Messenger (saws) while he was in the mosque, and he called him, saying, "O Allah's Messenger (saws)! I have committed ‘zina’ (adultery)." The Prophet (saws) turned his face to the other side, but that man repeated his statement four times, and after he bore witness against himself four times, the Prophet (saws) called him, saying, "Are you mad?" The man said, "No." The Prophet (saws) said, "Are you married?" The man said, "Yes." Then the Prophet (saws) said, "Take him away and stone him to death." Jabir bin 'Abdullah said: ‘I was among the ones who participated in stoning him and we stoned him at the Musalla. When the stones troubled him, he fled, but we over took him at Al-Harra and stoned him to death.’

      Sahih Muslim Hadith 4207 Narrated by Imran ibn Husayn
      A woman from Juhaynah came to Allah's Messenger (saws) and she had become pregnant because of adultery. She said: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws), I have done something for which (prescribed punishment) must be imposed upon me, so impose that.’ Allah's Messenger (saws) called her guardian and said: ‘Treat her well, and when she gives birth bring her to me.’ He did accordingly. Then Allah's Messenger (saws) pronounced judgment on her. Her clothes were tied around her and then he gave the order and she was stoned to death. He then prayed over her (dead body). Thereupon Hadrat Umar (r.a.) said to him (saws): ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws), you offer prayer for her although she had committed adultery!’ Thereupon he (saws) said: ‘She has made such a repentance that if it were to be divided among seventy men of Medina, it would be enough! Have you found any repentance better than that she sacrificed her life for Allah, the Majestic?’

      And we have a Hadith that says "Stoning" was an Ayah in the Quran but was mansookh, while the ruling remained:

      'Abdullah bin 'Abbas reported that 'Umar bin Khattab sat on the pulpit of Allah's messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: Verily Allah sent Muhammad (may peace be upon him) with truth and he sent down the book upon him, and the verse of stoning was included in what was sent down to him. We recited it, retained it in our memory and understood it. Allah's messenger (may peace be upon him) awarded the punishment of stoning to death (to the married adulterer and adulteress) and after him, we also awarded the punishment of stoning. I am afraid that with the lapse of time, the people (may forget it) and may say: We do not find the punishment of stoning in the book of Allah, and thus go astray by abandoning this duty prescribed by Allah. Stoning is a duty laid down in Allah's book for married men and women who commit adultery when proof is established, or if there is pregnancy or a confession. [Muslim, 3, No. 4194; Bukhari, 7, No. 816.]

      Ahadeeth that are so apparent do not need a different interpretation by a scholar. A Hadith is not an interpretation of a scholar, it is a part of the Deen along with the Quran. It is clear and there is no doubt, Alhamdulillah 🙂

      Muhammad Waseem Editor

      • Stoning is not in the Quran.

        The first hadeeth you mention is in fact te narrative about the Jew.
        In the second Hadith, about the pregnant lady, this was a punishment that she wished to be imposed.

        My understanding, when I researched this issue many years ago, is that both occurrences came before the Quranic revelations about the 100 lashes as punishment.

        Think about it. Islam allows a cold blooded murderer to be forgiven. But an adulterer is stoned to death? Everything about Islam makes sense. Stoning as a punishment for adultery does not.

        • Stoning for adultery makes a lot of sense per me because it aims at eradicating the evil from the society and also shows how great this sin is.

          A murderer is also killed according to the Sharee'ah. And stoning does not mean a person is in fire. Allah May Forgive the person concerned. Consider the second Hadith I quoted, Subhanallah.

          Flogging can not be an alternative to stoning because both appear in the same Hadith which is Sahih. 100 lashes is for non married people and stoning is for married ones.

          This has been the understanding of our Salaf as Saliheen and Alhamdulillab is the most correct per me.
          And as I said, Allah Is Just, even in His Punishment. What is the wisdom behind His Rules is something which He Knows or He Reveals. We shall know on the Day in sha Allah. And we can not justify everything with logic according to what Ali Radiyallahu Anhu said.

          Watch his little video clip on this regard:

          May Allah keep us all away from fornication and adultery



          Muhammad Waseem

        • Where did you find that surah Al Noor came AFTER both those incidents of stoning ? Infact there are more than just two incidents, I've come across atleast 12 incidents of stoning to death in hadith. Both lashing and stoning was ordered by the Prophet, difference is married and unmarried. It shows that Surah al Noor was already revealed and He continued both.

          Scholars of Islam interpret the Quran with the help of hadith.

    • And brother, please avoid challenging the 'Ilm of the Muslim jurists or the scholars. They are known as "warathatul Anbiya" - "the heirs of the Anbiyaa"

      Muhammad Waseem Editor

  6. I have a big confusion and need to ask this. I have read that zinna and shirk are same in this site and also in other sites. In zinaa girls obey the boyfriends in something forbidden by Allah (swt) in some cases even in ramdan. The girls know very well that it is a major sin and they even feel bad doing it then repent afterwards. However they are doing a major shirk,
    It may involve obedience to a human in violating the Commands of the Creator and deeming this violation as Halal (lawful), or obeying any man or woman, whether a president, a minister, a scientist or others, in opposing the Religion of Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted). </strong

    So they are no longer a muslim, so how is it that zinaa can be forgiven by tawbah? I have to clarify this for all those who are committing zina and think they are muslims. Please answer me.

    • can any knowledgeable person clarify this question?

      • Assalam'alaykum,

        Zina is not similar to Shirk if the people committed it accepting that it is haram. Zina and shirk are repentable. But Zina is indeed a seriously major sin after shirk and murder in Islam which holds terrible punishments in this life and the next.

        "And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such life as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment, multiplied for him is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein humiliated; Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. (Quran 25:68-70)

        The Prophet (s.a.w) said: “There is no sin after shirk (polytheism) greater in the eyes of Allah than a drop of semen which a man places in the womb which is not lawful for him.”

        Zina is similar to shirk if the people committed it and justified their actions. By this they are make permissible somthing Allah has made prohibited.

        Therefore, they still remain muslim except while commiting zina, because Prophet said: “ When a person commits zina, Imaan (faith) leaves him, until it is like a cloud over his head and returns when he finishes” ( Abu dawood )

  7. Assalamualaikum,

    Zina and Shirk are distinct. But the nature of the sin (any sin) may lead to Shirk. Like you pointed out, if a person obeys someone over the obedience of Allah, then it may lead to shirk. Even fearing someone as Allah should be feared is shirk.

    Two people in love become enslaved to each other could also involve Shirk.

    But there is a difference in major shirk and minor shirk. Allah May Forgive Zina or He May Not if Tawbah is not done, but Shirk is something He Says He Will not Forgive. Just like Riya, which is shirk al khafiyy (the hidden shirk) and is a minor one.

    “The thing that I fear most for you is minor Shirk.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah! What is minor Shirk?” He said, “Riya’. Truly, Allah (may He be Blessed and Exalted) shall say on the Day the servants shall be recompensed for their deeds, ‘Go to those for whom you were showing off with your deeds in worldly life and see if you can find with them recompense.’” (Related by Imam Ahmad)

    Allah Says in Surah an Nisa, Aayah 48:

    إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَغْفِرُ أَنْ يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ افْتَرَىٰ إِثْمًا عَظِيمًا
    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 sin.

    One can not say that Zina will not be Forgiven by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.

    You should read Kitab at Tawhid of Imam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab (or its explanation by Shaikh Salih al Fawzan or others) in order to understand the concept of Shirk, better.

    Muhammad Waseem Editor

    • Wa'alaykumsalam brother Waseem,

      but Shirk is something He Says He Will not Forgive.

      To my understanding, If someone commits zina and dies without repenting sincerely, that person will go to hell (to purify) and then finally to heaven with Allah's mercy. And if a person commits shirk and dies without repenting then that person will be in hell forever.
      But if the people who committed zina and shirk have repented before death, then they may be forgiven and admitted to paradise if Allah wills. As Allah said, He forgives all sin including shirk. On the judgement day, Allah may forgive other minor sins if that person good deeds outweigh the bad, but if he shirks, then Allah will never forgvie him. This is what I understand from the verse you've mentioned.

      • Brother Ali,

        Whether Allah Forgives someone or not is not for us to say. It is His Wish. This is why Allah Said that He Will Forgive if He Wishes. But for Shirk we can say that He won't Forgive, because He Says that. It is His Decision and not something that fits our little, insignificant understanding.

        Muhammad Waseem Editor

        • Yes, I've used the words ' may forgive ', ' If Allah wills ' etc always as obviously Allah forgives whomsoever He wishes.

          As for shirk, Allah does not forgive it if a person dies upon it, however, He may or may not, at His discretion, forgive all other sins (except shirk) which a person dies upon. Therefore, even shirk is forgiven for those who repent sincerely before their death.

          “Say: ‘O ‘Ibaadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allaah, verily, Allaah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful’”
          [al-Zumar 39:53]

          And those who invoke not any other ilaah (god) along with Allaah, nor kill such person as Allaah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. The torment will be doubled to 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, Allaah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allaah is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful
          [al-Furqaan 25:68-70]

      • And you are absolutely right about the punishment for sins in Hell and then entry into Jannah. But if Allah Wills, He May make the sinners enter Jannah without Hisaab and 'Adhaab.

        Muhammad Waseem Editor

    • can a Muslim committing such shirk knowingly be forgiven through sincere repentance? Is there any verse of Qur'an that says so? I just know that the dear uncle of the beloved Muhammad (saw) was not forgiven even after our prophet cried for his forgiveness. So can a Muslim engaged in such shirk have hope of forgiveness from Allah?

      • As you know I am not a scholar but I will give my opinion only.

        Allah knows best and any good I say is from Him and any mistake I make is from myself. I pray Allah swt forgives me for any mistake.

        I believe that if someone sincerely repents and makes amends and makes intention not to repeat, then Allah (swt) will forgive them, even if they did knowingly commit shirk. Provided that they do not re-engage in it. I cannot find a verse in the Qur'an at present which supports this but maybe a reader/editor can help with that InshaAllah. But I know the Allah swt is the Most Merciful and if someone turned to Him and asked Him sincerely for forgiveness, I believe He would forgive them.

        In the case of the uncle of the Rasool SAW, he died in that state. I believe that the Rasool SAW asked him to bear witness that there is no god except Allah, and in the end he stuck with his own religion. So if you die on shirk then it is unforgivable. If Abu Talib would have accepted, he would have been forgiven.

        And Allah knows best.

  8. Assalamu Alaikum Warahmathullahi Wabarakathuhu,

    Brothers & Sisters,

    I have cople of questions.

    Alhamdulillah i am praying now. Alhamdulillah. I feel i have control over my self & my dirty desires. Reading & learning the Al Quran. The same internet which lead me to this major sin now is being used to see, read, listen to good things by Allah's help. Alhamdulilahi Rabbil Aalameen.

    I am facing a major issue after i have realised my fault. I am unable to concentrate on prayers & recitation & even reading the Tarjuma. Waswaas is killing me. I have read now so many articles about Waswaas on internet. Wallahi i can not express it to any one. Naoothubillahi Minha. But i am really striving & struggling to complete my salah & recitation. But after i am done every thing is quiet surprisingly. When ever i start i get that. I have this Waswaas problem for after taking wodooh as well. I have read that there is a hadees that Waswaas can be forgiven by Allah unless its been told to any one. Allah Knows the best.

    I did not have it before at all when ever i am with this sins & astray. There for i can feel that Shaithan is trying to deviate me. Alhamdulillah i am now getting stronger and stronger in controlling my desires. I can feel that. But when it comes to Prayers i really struggle & Some times i feel " Will Allah accept my prayers ".

    The things i have noticed are. While praying Tahajjath Alhamdulillah. No Issues. While i am praying in Jamath no issues. While i read or read translation of Al Quran loud no issues. But when i am praying alone i get it. And the bad part is that the worldly affairs are verly less. Now i get Waswaas on speritual things while praying. This is what makes me terribly afraid. Just 100s imajinations just flashes for a second & goes. Flashes & goes. I am trying my best to avoid it buidlup.

    Also some days i feel my level of taqwa is very high. I always ask tawba & i feel like asking again & again. Some days i can feel my heart is normal & my speritual things are lower. This i have noticed between one prayer to another. After i read Quran or listen to any serious bayans i get back to normal.

    Can you please advice me why is this happening? & Allah Knows the Best.

    May Allah increase our level of Eeman & Forgive our Sins.

    Say: ‘O ‘Ibaadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allaah, verily, Allaah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful’”
    [al-Zumar 39:53]

    And those who invoke not any other ilaah (god) along with Allaah, nor kill such person as Allaah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. The torment will be doubled to 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, Allaah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allaah is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful”
    [al-Furqaan 25:68-70]

    Alhamdulilahi Rabbil Aalameen.

    • Wa Alaikum as Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu,

      Alhamdulillah, you are on the correct track. Just make sure you gain knowledge from the right sources. Regarding the Waswas in prayer, it is from a Shaitaan named "Khinzab". So you should seek refuge in Allah from him in the state of prayer, whenever you feel he is whispering in your heart.

      Uthmaan ibn Abi’l-Aas (radiyAllahu anhu) came to the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and said: “The Shaytaan comes between me and my prayer and recitation of Quran, and he is confusing me.” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “That is a devil called Khinzab. If you notice that, then seek refuge with Allah from him, and spit drily to your left three times.” Uthmaan ibn Abi’l-Aas (radiyAllahu anhu) said: “I did that, and Allah took him away from me.” [Muslim]

      I think this hadith has the answer to your question. Also read this book by Imam ibn Rajab al Hanbali Rahimahullah about humility in prayer:

      And this book by ibn Qudamah al Maqdisi Rahimahullah about Waswasah:

      These will help you a lot, in sha Allah.

    • aisha, you have committed a hug sin and you must constantly ask forgiveness from Allah. Also do your best to perform all your prayers and nawafil as well. Fast in Ramadan, give your zakat and extra if you can, and perform Hajj. Insha'Allah you will be forgiven.
