Scholars of Islam, As-Salaam `Alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. I deliberately had abortion though the pregnancy didn’t cause danger to my life. Now, I regret what I have done and earnestly implore Allah to forgive my sin. What should I do? Please, help me.
A person has committed zina (fornication) outside of marriage and does not intend to marry the woman. The person considers the action a grave mistake and has repented by asking Allah for forgiveness, resolving never to perform the act again, and feeling remorse for the action. The sin is still concealed and only known to the two involved. Does the person need to be given 100 lashes in order to complete the repentance and gain forgiveness from Allah?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. If a woman had children out of wedlock and later she met a Muslim man and wished to marry him, could they do so? Does Allah forgive her sins? Can she become Muslim? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I understand that all the sins fall under two categories, minor and major. Is the method of repentance the same for both types of sins? Also, what if you happened to commit a sin but you did not know that the sin is considered major in Islam? For example, hugging a member of opposite sex falls under zina but the person did not know that before; is it considered just as severe? I would appreciate if you would provide me with the answers to these questions. Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear Sheikh! Our young people (may Allah grant them guidance) sometimes abuse the Internet by browsing the porn websites wasting time and effort and even disobeying Allah. What is your advice to those teenagers and others?
Dear scholars! Could you please explain to me the concept of Tawbah in Islam? Jazakum Allahu Khairan
Once I heard a Sheikh saying, “It could happen that a sin causes one to enter Paradise.” How could this happen?
Salaam, I sent you a question regarding repentance from zina. But i need a clarification. I understood from the response that for committing fornication, lashes as a punishment is Not a must to get forgiveness from Allah.But i need to know, if one repented from zina and then repeated sins of similar nature, is the door open for forgiveness?? And if i confided in some people about this sin in the past, or others may have an idea, if people know about it in my past, will Allah still forgive me? I understand now that i should bury my sin and not tell anyone, but what about what i have shared before? Does Allah's forgiveness depend on whether people know??Also i got married a while ago and in our country, we had a proper Nikah administered by a Maulvi and Mahr was exchanged. On the form, there were 3 options listed whether bride is virgin, divorced or widowed and virgin was marked for me. I was obviously in no position to reveal to anyone/ family/ or my future husband otherwise for that would ruin my future or any chance of redemption. Im scared to ask this but i need to know, if my Nikah was carried out properly as per the norm but 'virgin' was marked on the form for me, is my marriage valid? Im terrified to have this thought even occur to me, but for my peace of mind i need to know that i have closed this dark chapter and can move ahead.Also, on repeating similar acts after repenting from fornication, if i repent now, will Allah forgive me and wipe my sins? I am ashamed of my sins and i wish i could undo my past but i cant. Im 31 yrs old, is there hope for me?I read somewhere that if a non Muslim converts to Islam his previous sins are wiped out. If being a Muslim i repent from my past mistakes even if they are as ho rrible as fornication, will Allah accept my repentance and wipe away my sins?Pls keep my questions confidential and put them through to a reliable Islamic scholar and guide me pls.Rgrdsa

As-Salamu `alaykum. I would like to know if performing wudu' (ablution) is necessary before offering tawbah (repentance). Also, is ghusl (bathing) necessary before repenting, in the case that a person is unclean?
The last couple of months, I have been thinking about small things I used to steal from family and friends. In addition to asking Allah for forgiveness, what should I do about such things?
Dear scholar, As-Salamu `alaykum. My friend was sexually abused in his childhood and now he only likes sex with males. Is there any treatment within Islam? Thanks in advance.
Dear scholar,I am a 31 year old male doctor residing in Pakistan and a Sunni Muslim. I have done well all my life except in the past two to three years when my problems began. I am a feminine guy and by nature, I am sexually attracted to males. This has been going on since childhood and I think this is genetically determined. When I was 12 years old, my driver had anal sex with me. At that time, I was very young and presumably this was not my fault. But three years back, my trouble began when I left my clinical career for research in Pakistan as I was finding difficult to manage a clinical career. The research work was very boring and my colleagues kept on telling me to marry to find some success in life. Since I was attracted to guys only, one day I met a guy in my hospital. He was very nice to me and also touched me and I offered to have oral sex only with him and he agreed. He took me to a place and there he had anal intercourse with me which was with my consent due to my nature after my initial reluctance but also his insistence. Since then, I have been in deep trouble. I am having problems at work and fear that Allah's wrath will fall on me. I think I have committed a sin and will be punished for that. After having intercourse, I bled anally at home as well next morning which was seen by my parents. So I had to admit this to my parents as well and eventually my whole family got to know about it. Later on, I found out that the person with whom I had sex was an Aga Khani.I have a few questions:I have become an object of joke and fun among boys and girls in my hospital which I don't like. What should I do to get my sin forgiven?If I have to get married to a girl, my parents would be reluctant to find a girl. How should I find a girl who would stick to me and whom I would be able to satisfy?What should I do to have my sins forgiven and get Jannah on the Day of Judgement?
