Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: “Cheating not only at a place of work but anywhere, is strictly prohibited in Islam. This doesn’t go along with the Islamic ethics and teachings communicated to us by the Prophet SAW. Every Muslim in this situation should hasten to repent and stop the act. But as long as one has made amends for their wilful misdeeds in this area, they need not worry about the doubts that creep into their mind about instances of misdeeds that they have no clear evidence of. Remember, Shaitan is now using their fear of Allah and guilt conscience to take them away from the straight path. So do not worry about the past after you have made amends. The only thing you need to do now is to cleanse yourself by giving whatever charities you can afford to, making istighfar (asking forgiveness of Allah), and being determined never to do it again. Fight the Devil’s suggestions through dhikr and keep him away by reminding yourself of the mercy of Allah towards the penitent. Allah says, ‘Verily I am most Forgiving to those who are repentant.’
