  1. last night i committed horrible sin, that i was addicted to for past 14 years…i watched porn after 5 days of staying away from it in ramadan. i am disgusted with myself and this habit….will Allaah ever forgive me?

    • Assalaamu alaikum,

      I’ll say 3 words: never give up. Always go back to purifying your intentions, writing down concrete plans on how you will fight your bad habits, and work hard to do so. Keep seeking Allah’s forgiveness. May He grant you the guidance and steadfastness.

      Also, I would strongly recommend that you sign up to Br. Zeyad Ramadan’s “Purify Your Gaze” campaign: In sha Allah, this would really help.

      • thank u ..for this brother abu productive
        in sha Allah i shall join that campaign ,,,it sounds nice..and very beneficial
        JazakAllah khayr

      • Salam brother thank you for your comforting words. l have sinned over and over even after dreaming of our phophet Mohammed 3times in one year. l was even approached by all my loved ones who passed away to how to live my life and l still sinned. before l used to get all my warnings through dreams but recently l feel l have lost contact with them. l seeked for the forgiveness but still feel a weight on my head. reading your words l feel there is still a hope……

        • Salams brother Allah is so much kind and merciful ,even no one predict how much , even in arsh allah has writen in Golden letter , sin full ummah and merciful rabb, ,, so brother please do not give up ur hopes about allahs mercy but even ask allah to protect you , in arabic their os a duwa , rabban lathuziyakuluban badaizhadithana whablana milladunka rah………….. this duwa inshallah allah will help you from your worries

    • 14 years? Wow. I’m not sure if I can give you one complete answer although I truly wish I could. Maybe you could try Also try reddit. It seriouisly surprised me how much support you could find on there. Look for the /r/pornfee or /r/nofap subreddit.

    • “Allah doesn’t see ours sins… but our intentions very close up”
      This is what it really matters for us… our hope is to never give up and keep on feeding our good intentions and struggle for being coherent in thoughts and actions.Every day we do wrong but Allah is the Only One who can redirect us to His path, beg for His Guidance brother! I always do so…

  2. jAzakallahu Kahiar
    May Allah increase sister Aseel Samaak’s knowledge and grant her the Paradise which we all wising for

  3. Jazakillahu khairan for a beautiful and well written article may Allah SWT bless n enrich your life in this world and d hereafter ameen.

  4. very good article, it reminds us not to be despondent,. A way that can help staying steadfast in our “journey through the right path” is to read a lots of istighfaar; asking Allah for forgiveness, like how our Prophet (s) has taught us. because it shouldn’t be that we feel, not even a moment, that we are doing something really good, inevitably the nafs together with shaytan will try a way to make us stop our good deeds. Asking Allah to forgive us, brings humility in a person in a way that it make us feel like we did not do anything, and if we did do, then did Allah accept that little from us?

  5. i seriously need help i feel i hav lost my way n seem no way back i have repented many times but very soon i fall back ive tried allot but cant come out i forget Allah very often although i badly want Him suggest me pls what m i suppose to do

    • Salaam Zaheer, don’t beat yourself up so much, in fact Shaytan takes advantage of this. Know that Allah is most forgiving, as long as you feel remorse and your is to give up (keep trying), you will be successful. Once you made it, never go back, and yes.. you can make it. You be free of bad certain bad habit. Understand that some very strong habits are very difficult to break, don’t lose hope and don’t give up. Allah knows your struggle. Its not that you commit a sin but rather commit a sin and not care. Allah make us among the successful.

      • wassalaam thank u soo much brother that gave me allot of strength and support il start it over again pls rember in ur duas
        jazzakallahu khayr :-)

    • Assalaamu alaikum Zaheer,

      Sincere apologies for the delay in responding to you. Jibrail has shared great advice. I hope it helped you.

      I would strongly recommend you to read this short eBook “I Want to Repent, But…”:

      It directly addresses what you’re experiencing, and it will give you the needed motivation to continue trying, to continue repenting and not to despair in Allah’s Mercy and your own willpower, in sha Allah.

      I shared this eBook recently with someone who was going through a similar situation and it has helped them to move on as well. May the same be for you. Ameen.

      • walaikumassalaam
        jazakaallah for that wonderful eBook its sure is a great eye opener and like a guiding light bringing me back restoring the faith lifting my hopes jazakaallahu kahiran
        may Allah bless u fr this noble work:)

  6. Assalamu alaykum,
    I have really enjoyed your article but I have one concern: at the moment I am a teenage muslim and I always try to do every thing for the sake of Allah but the problem is I wasn’t always like this since for the past years. I used to behave in the manner I wanted, missed a couple of prayers and fasts, listened to music, lied etc. this list can go on but the thing is now I completely changed and I am more aware of Allah. However each time I think of my chance of getting into heaven I remember my past sins and becuase there is so much of them I have no clue if I can even get forgiven.

  7. dear brothers and sisters…Well…im 18 now but previously I have commited a sin with someone 5 years older than me who was 22 and I was 16 at the time. they spoke to me via internet and I really thought this was a good person someone who I could trust. However I was only 16 when this first happened I went to meet the person and they started taking advantadge, I didn’t know what to do :/I refused first but the person kept saying how childish I was I was just so confused, the tried making me do stuff but never managed to undress me at all as I never allowed him to do that, but I liked him so much I didn’t know what to do , I visited him 2 more times and he did it again. I then left for months ignored him but I thought maybe hes changed to I spoke to him a few months later and he was the same. 3 months ago I met him again and he was the same. I refused but no he manipulated me into doing stuff with him and then left me. Is it my fault? How can I improve myself. I told my mother about it and she told me people make mistakes but its my duty to improve myself, I realise what has happened and I am now working on improving myself as a person. All the times I met him I didn’t let him undress me I was clothed but he did get on top of me kiss etc.

    • Alhamdulillah you’ve realised and have made good intentions to improve yourself as a person. Make sure you make a good and sincere repentance, and guard yourself from such things in the future In Sha Allah.

      If you want to improve your character then the best place is to learn from the Qur’an and from the beloved Prophet (saw). Learn about your deen, and learn about your rights as a Muslim woman.
      I hope that you are ok.

      Allah knows best.

  8. i really appreciate this topic of repentance for that we are human beings and we all commit sins and thanks alot

  13. Assalam Alaikum everyone…
    I came across this website today only and i really liked it..
    JAZAAKI ALLAH KHAIR to the owner for such an amazing effort, May ALLAH(swt) reward you for that.
    and i would like to mention something which has already been stated by someone. All of us are human beings and ‘to err is human’, but we shouldnt despair, because Allah(swt) is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. Whatever sins may have been committed by you, let it remain a secret between Allah(swt) and you- for if He(swt) has pardoned it, then you wont be held accountable for that. So please refrain from mentioning it. ( has been stated in a Hadith also).

  14. Mashallah what a wonderful & helpful article.

    I am 17 years old and over the past 2/3 years I have committed many sins such as drinking alcohol, self harming, compulsively lying etc… The most recent sin I have committed is most possibly the worst, I tried to take my own life, alhumdulillah allah SWT gave me another chance at life to better myself and right the wrong I have done. My parents were beyond angry and were ready to throw me out onto the streets, I committed this disgraceful sin in November and I have been trying extremely hard to gain the love, trust and respect of my parents back. My relationship with my mother has been weak for a while and I know that was from my own doing, recently we had been becoming much closer and I was thankful that things were looking on the positive side, due to my stupidity my mum rightfully confiscated my phone from me after I committed that sin. Unfortunately I was weak and allowed the shaytan to control me as I began using an old phone of mine sneakily…. My mum found out and I have ruined all trust and love that i worked so hard to build back up. I have done many stupid things over the years and a simple ‘sorry’ will mean nothing. How do I stop myself from compulsively lying and being sneaky? All I want is to become a better muslim and make my parents proud but I fail every time I try through my own stupid actions. My mum won’t even look at me after having gone through the phone, I need advice as I do not have anyone I can open up to and ask for advice from. Please help me, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Jazakallah Khair

  15. Apparently according to , they claim that this hadith: Narrated Abu Huraira: “I heard Allah’s Apostle saying. “All the sins of my followers will be forgiven except those of the Mujahirin (those who commit a sin openly or disclose their sins to the people). An example of such disclosure is that a person commits a sin at night and though Allah screens it from the public, then he comes in the morning, and says, ‘O so-and-so, I did such-and-such (evil) deed yesterday,’ though he spent his night screened by his Lord (none knowing about his sin) and in the morning he removes Allah’s screen from himself.” (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab), Volume 8, Book 73, Number 95)”, is specifying that the sin of advertising one’s sin is unforgivable in islam. Is this true? If then, how can Allah forgive shirk but not an openly committed sin whereby repentance is sought after? Doesn’t that invalidate Allah(SWT)’s claim that He will forgive All Sins

  16. Salamu Alaikum
    I used to cut myself a few months ago. Not deep or anything though, just with glass or something sharp I would find and it was very foolish of me! Now I have scars still and I cry because I am scared they won’t go away. I don’t know why I did that I guess I just liked seeing blood for some reason. I also haven’t been praying… I am full of regret and I am really sorry and I ask Allah for forgiveness. The problem is my parents don’t know and nobody knows of my sins except my older sister found out and promised not to tell on me as long as I never do it again. Do I have to tell my mom and apologize to her in order for Allah to forgive me? Or is it possible to just forgive and forget? I don’t know what to do and I don’t want to hurt my mom!! Pease help :( I am so scared that when I’m older my scars will still be there and it will just be too painful to move on. I can’t even forgive myself. How do I get Allah’s forgiveness? Do I have to tell my mom of the sins I did? I don’t want to upset her! She will never forgive herself and she will think it’s her fault when really it was mine and at the time it didn’t seem like a big deal but I now realize the consequences of my actions. Please help!!

  17. Ive always do taubat prayer, like almost everyday and lately i seems to lose the true meaning of the prayer. Its mean nothing, as i still do the same sins and do bad things that Allah prohibits like, talking carelessly,wasting time. Even, i promised with high determination at night that i will never repeat the sins again. But i seems to totally forgot about the promise in the day.

    I never lose hope in Allah, i know he’s the most forgiving. I just lose hope in myself, i dont see i get any better. I don’t know what or where is wrong but I’m definitely sure there’s something wrong in myself. I’m ashamed to even ask for His forgiveness again.

  18. Dear sister its really a good job. May Allah rewards U with a great knowledge. And take U to the Jannah. Ameen
    Sister, I hve a great sorrow which hurted me alot. One day Me and my girlfriend (whom I’m gonna marry) went to park to celebrate my birthday. When we both were alone two drunken BASTARDS came near to us, they bet me on my head and took my wife away and raped her in front of eyes.I was helpless and I cried but there is no use. Since that time I became mad. I hve been praying to Almighty Allah SWT to help us both..Now I’m requesting U to give a powerful dua to save my wife from them forever…and I wanna punish them with that powerful dua. Sister kindly help us both. We will always be grateful to U forever. Jazakallahu Khairan

  21. Thank you! You gave me all my answers that I wanted, I thought Allah would never forgive for self-harming.. I was blinded by Shaaytan and I didn’t repent because I thought it would value nothing. Now that you said that I’m more than happy! Allah will forgive I know he will if I repent for my sins, even though I done it three times I realised I have to repent and beg for Allah’s forgiveness! You shown me the light and lead me out there! May you always be blessed! Jazakallah.
