  • repentance, please take the time to reply.

    I would really appreciate if you take the time to read this and help me without judgement.

    I'm 24, for the past ten years i have been living my life in sin and by sin i mean everything wrong whether it is drinking alcohol, lying, stealing, adultery, everything you can image. two months ago, i started suffering from severe panic and anxiety attacks. I would literally open my eyes in the morning and get a panic attack to a point where everyone around me thought i had to be hospitalized. I told my mom everything and she told me that i should become closer to allah and this is the only way i will get better. My mum and dad are religious and always advise me and my brother but we never listened. Medication didnt work and nothing was so i started praying and becoming closer to allah and it worked. I have been feeling alot better since then and i have repented for everything bad i have ever done and promised god i will never do anything wrong again. Ever since then i have been praying on a daily basis, reciting dhikr, reading quran, planning to make up for the days i didnt fast in (which are alot but im determined to do so). I know allah forgives but my question is there anything else i can do? I am genuinely planning to stay like this until i die whether it is tommorow or in 50 years. I just want to be forgiven for everything wrong ive done in my life, i had no idea what i was thinking back then but im glad im on the right path now.

    Awww... that was so inspiring to read.

    Yes, there is one thing you can do. You can thank Allah for not giving up on you. Continue to repent to God whenever you slip into sin.

    His forgiveness is so precious!

      Consider yourself to be blessed because Allah (SWT ) has brought you closer to Him and took you away from the wrong path.

      May Allah bless you with steadfastness and best of both worlds. AMEEN

        The only thing you can do more is just to continue to be this way. Continue on with your praying and dhikr and you will be successful in this world and in the hereafter In sha Allah.

          You can help other lost muslims out there. I think it's easier for you to put yourself in their shoes, because you exactly know how it feels. And they might listen to you, because you've been there, done that.

            salaamu alaikum, beautiful post, just keep on the right path and repent.
            Abu Malik at-Ash'ari reported:

            The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith

            and al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and gratitude is for Allah alone) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah)

            and al-Hamdu Lillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light,

            and charity is proof (of one's faith)

            and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you.

            All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.

                Re: repentance, please take the time to reply.

                Thank you so much for your kind replies and for not judging me at all. Allah did take me from a very difficult place in my life subhanallah. alhamdullah i am on the right path now and this has completely changed me. I don't even lie anymore and i am determined to stay on the path of not even committing one sin until the day i die. I just have one more question:-

                I understand that dating in islam is haram (based on what ive read) please excuse my knowledge as i'm new to this and i'm trying my best to increase my knowledge on a daily basis. I currently am seeing this guy which i have sinned with before whether it is drinking or the other stuff (before repentence). We are not in the same country ive been in my home country for the past two month but im going back next week to where i originally live. Ever since i started praying and becoming closer to allah we spoke about it and he has as well. He has also started praying (elhamdullah) and agreed to not do any physical stuff anymore. He was also very supportive of everything i'm doing and actually thanked me for being a positive influence on him. Should i still continue with this relationship even if i'm not doing anything wrong? The reason i'm asking is because after i repented i promised god not to do anything wrong anymore but i just dont know what to do about this situation and i would greatly appreciate your help.

                  Relationships like that are not allowed in Islam - only permissible way would be if u 2 got married.

                  Also, for what you said before, do good deeds, because they erase the bad ones. Read Quran, do charity, be good to your parents and serve them whilst they're alive, etc

                    why isn't it allowed if we don't do anything that is wrong and even go out in public places? and i've actually helped him in praying and becoming a better person so we are positive infleunces on each other. He even spoke tome about hijab yesterday.

                      Well it's not right for you to speak to him, it's as if you are boyfriend and girlfriend. Satan is the third person, it will always encourage you to do haram things. You should not be talking to this guy alone.

                      The best thing to do is to consider marriage? if you like him and you both are trying to work towards islam, then why not? you're 24 and probably ready? ask your parents, you father (your wali)

                        Re: repentance, please take the time to reply.

                        Because of the lifestyle we both had previously, it took us forever to graduate from university. He still has four months ago and he doesn't work. My main point here is that i don;t want to do anything that upsets allah, especially after allah took me out of the dark place i was in. I am also in the process of quitting smoking, went from a pack per day to five and hopefully to none in a couple of days :) So am i not allowed to even speak to him on the phone? Are their any links i can look at, i tried looking online but couldn't find any (excuse my limited knowledge).

                        Also, does anyone know of a reliable website i can look at to learn something new every day.

                        Thank you so much for all the help and kindness
