Can Zina be forgiven 1

First of all, it must be said that Zina, adultery, all these sins are very terrible and heinous. So those involved in this sin want to know, Can Zina be forgiven? Let me tell you a story before this answer.

Let me cite the example of a young man who once raised the question, he started committing sins from a very young age. Now he is only seventeen years old. At this age, his list of sins is very long. He committed all kinds of sins big and small and He committed sins with various people, big and small.

He even raped little girls and He also stole a lot. Then he said, I have repented to Allah. Sometimes I wake up at night and read Tahajjud. If I keep the Nafal fast every Monday and Thursday and read the Quran after the Fajr prayer, will my repentance be accepted?

Shaykh Shaykh Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid said, Dear brother, may Allah forgive you. Because we are followers of Islam. And Allah says,

O my servants, who have wronged yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Surely Allah will forgive all (past) sins; Surely He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. And return to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes, then there will be no help.” (Surah Azumar: 53-54)

Can Zina be forgiven?

Yes, Zina can be forgiven. If you sincerely ask Allah for forgiveness, even sin will be forgiven. You may say to me, I want to apologize but I have committed zina, which is a great sin, along with many other sins. I have committed many sins in my life. The situation has reached such a point that Allah will forgive me all the sins of the past years.

We are followers of Islam. Our principle is to take rulings and remedies from the Qur’an and Sunnah. This great saying of Allah about the forgiveness of zina inspires us:

Say: (Allah says) O my servants! Those who have oppressed yourselves, do not despair of Allah’s mercy. Surely Allah will forgive all (past) sins; Surely He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. And return to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes, then there will be no help.” (Surah Azumar: 53-54)

This is the subtle answer to the stated problem and is very clear, no need for explanation. So you can have full hope that Zina will be forgiven.

If Zina is numerous, Allah will forgive?

Yes, Allah will forgive whatever the number of Zina is. To get forgiveness you have to do the following.

First: The servant’s firm belief in the extent of Allah’s mercy and forgiveness. This saying of Allah Almighty will suffice as an explanation: “Indeed Allah will forgive all (past) sins; Indeed, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surah Azyumar: 53)

Second: Do not lack faith in the extent of Allah’s mercy. In this case, Qudsi is sufficient in the hadith. Almighty Allah says, “Whoever knows that I have the power to forgive sins, then I will forgive him and I will not care about anything. If he associates anything with me.” (Tabarani, Hakeem, Sahih al-Jame’ 4330) This will be when the servant meets Allah in the Hereafter.

Thirdly: To have the understanding of the conditions of forgiveness, that it can forgive all sins. In this case, this hadith of the Prophet is enough, “He who repents will not have any sin.”

Those who think forgiveness is very difficult and wonder, whether Allah will forgive difficult sins. I present the following hadith for them.

Best Time to apologize to Zina

If someone commits a heinous sin like Zina, he will immediately seek forgiveness. Since this is a great injustice, he must ask Allah for forgiveness. If you sincerely, sincerely ask Allah for forgiveness at once, then Allah will forgive the servants.

Rasul (PBUH) said in the hadith, that Allah will forgive all sins if you truly repent. So if a person asks for forgiveness with true sincerity, he will surely be forgiven. However, there are conditions.

That is, keeping one thing in your mind and saying another in your mouth will not result in repentance. Repentance is not just a word of mouth. You have to prove it through work. You have to make up your mind to get out of crime. Only then will Allah forgive. Allah is waiting to accept the repentance of the servants.

Forgiveness can be sought from Allah at any time, but there are times when forgiveness is more likely to be accepted. For example, on the last night, during rain, after the obligatory prayer like Fajr, after the call to prayer and after the Iqwamat.

Dua to be ask forgiven for Zina

اللهمّ أنت الملك لا إله إلّا أنت ربّي، وأنا عبدك لمت نفسي، واعترفت بذنبي، فاغفر لي ذنوبي جميعًا، إنّه لا يغفر الذنوب إلّا أنت، وأهدني لأحسن الأخلاق لا يهدي لأحسنها إلّا أنت، و أصرف عنّي سيّئها لا يصرف عنّي سيّئها إلّا أنت، لبّيك وسعديك، والخير كلّه بيديك، والشرّ ليس إليك، تباركت وتعاليت، أستغفرك وأتوب إليك. 

Meaning: Oh God, You are the King, there is no god but You, my Lord, and I, Your servant, blamed myself and confessed my sin, so forgive me all my sins, for no one forgives sins except You, and guide me to the best of morals, no one guides to the best of them but You, and turn away from me the bad of them, no one can turn away the bad of them from me except You, here you are. I am happy with you, and all good is in your hands, and evil is not up to you. You are blessed and exalted. I seek your forgiveness and repent to you.

اللهم أيما عبدٍ تاب إليك وهو في علم الغيب عندك فاصفح لتوبته وعائدٌ في ذنبه وخطيئته فإني أعوذ بك أن أكون كذلك فأجعل توبتي هذه توبةً لا أحتاج بعدها إلى توبة، توبةً موجبةً لمحو ما سلف والسلامة فيما بقي

Meaning: O God, whenever a servant repents to You while He is in the knowledge of the unseen with You, forgive his repentance and his return to his sin and sin, for I seek refuge in You to be like that, so make this repentance of mine a repentance after which I will not need repentance, a repentance that necessitates erasing what came before and safety in what remains.
