  • Can I still repent after the Kaba'ir?

    Alsalamu Alaikum,

    Unfortunately, I have committed some Kaba'ir (alcohol, weed, mixing) and not performing obligatory prayers. I understand that I should not conceal my faults, but I am doing this to demonstrate the extent to which I have lost my deen. I heard that Kaba'ir are unforgivable, can I still repent? I continuously feel guilty. I think of Allah subhanahu everyday...yet everytime I think of the Greatest I feel weaker and weaker because of the shame I put myself in. I didn't even enjoy doing the wrong things and looking to replace this with halal adrenaline in this life. I always wanted great friends, but instead I mixed with the wrong friends. But it wasn't their fault, and I bear the responsibility for every influence and action I had pertained.

    However, I still have hope. I heard once that hope is important in Islam. I still want to be a great woman. I'm not sure what I am meant to do right now. Do I perform Ghusl? Wash all my clothes? How do I get back to the routine of performing prayers? I'm not sure where to start...I feel absolutely lost.

    I would really respect one who could recommend me books to read perhaps or advice.

    Finally, if anybody decides to judge me based on my sins, don't bother because it won't make a different in this life or the hereafter. In fact, I don't think I'd care less anymore so it would be a waste of judgements. Sorry for giving a bitter warning but I feel guilty as it is.

    Jazakum Allah Kheir.
    Smile ! It's Sunnah

    Wa 'alaykum as Salaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,


    May Allah reward you for your intentions.

    Of course you can repent sister. As long as you are alive and able to repent, you should do so :) Allah is the Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. Believe that :o

    In terms of praying, ghusl is only required if you are in a state of impurity. Have a look at the answers to these questions as it may help: http://islamqa.info/en/search?key=ghusl

    With regards to prayer, the best time to start is now :)

    You must pray your obligatory salah, that is:

    Fajr: 2 rak'at
    Dhuhr: 4 rak'at
    'Asr: 4 rak'at
    Maghrib: 3 rak'at
    'Isha: 4 rak'at

    Focus on praying these. There are no excuses to miss them. If it is easy for you, you should try to pray the Sunnah prayers too. If you have missed salah in the past, try and pray tahajjud.

    Here's a video that explains how to pray: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKblG-Zoagk

      Every sin is forgiveable, even major ones. For major ones you need to do sincere repentance which means
      1. You regret what you did
      2. You give it up immediately
      3. You strive to never return to it

      And do good deeds they erase the bad

        For her missed prayers she should calculate and make them up bit by bit, excluding the time when its her "time of the month". Though Simone may want to confirm that

          According to the scholars in the book, Fatawa Islamiyyah, you do not have to make up missed prayers due to deliberately abandoning them in the past because abandoning them is an act of disbelief according to the words of the Prophet s.a.a.w:

          "The Covenant which is between us and them is the prayer, and whoever abandoned it has disbelieved." (At-Tirmithi no.2621, An-Nasi'i no.464 and Ahmad no.346,355)

          "Between a man and disbelief and Shirk is abandoning the prayer." (Muslim no.82)

          And there is no atonement for this except sincere repentance. (End Quote)

            Thats the salafi/hanbali position, the other madhabs say otherwise.
