Adultery And Repentance

I am a Muslim married man, but have had illicit relations with many women, most of them Muslims. With one particular woman, I had prolonged relations. She became pregnant. Upon discovery, we aborted the child. She wanted to marry me afterwards but I could not as I did not want to hurt my wife and children. Even then she wanted to continue the relationship and we had sexual relation many times afterwards. I have recently broken off relations with her and she is very angry and says that she will never forgive me for toying with her. Allah knows that I only broke off as I wanted to redeem myself, I have stopped all such nonsense but am very worried and do not want to go to Hell. Please guide how can I.

Teasing A Repentant Sinner

I have a query. I want to know what Islam says about this. If a girl was unchaste when she was young and was also into some sort of zina, not the extreme one, and she did all that she should not have done like partying, dancing, smoking (no alcohol), clubbing, going out with boys, being close with them in some manner, because of fun and ignorance and she did not even offer prayer during that period but then slowly and slowly she started to do it less often. One day something happens in her life. A death happens and just wakes her up. She feels what was happening with her. What was she doing? Why was she doing all that nasty stuff? She feels that as if she was forced to do it. Then she leaves all of that and asks Allah's forgiveness. She becomes a pious lady, leaving all that behind and promising never to do that again.

Is it permissible for any person to say bad things about that girl now? Can they call her that she is a prostitute and all that which she was not? People in her neighborhood and relatives and even her brother teases her and comments her saying that they know what all she did in her past. They are trying to defame her now. They are talking about her character and spreading rumors. Is it right for them to do this, when this girl has left all the bad deeds and has become a nice girl now? She doesn’t even go out. She stays in pardah, offers prayers and seeks forgiveness for all the time. She cries because of all this. Please answer what does Islam say about these people who are torturing her and calling her prostitute? What should be done to them?

One more thing that I want to ask is that why does the girl feel that she was in some kind of trap and that all of a sudden she was set free. And when she sits she can’t even realize that she could do such heinous acts in her past because she had been an innocent girl all her childhood. She could not even think of doing all that what she did. Is that due to some magic affecting her? Is all that is happening in her family is due that magic?

Hardships In Life

My problem is that I am a victim of continuous problems. I face one after the other difficulty. I do not find any chance for peaceful survival. On the insistence of my wife I even ended up to people like Qadri sahib of Lahore but of course to no avail. I am requesting you to kindly help us. This all started in 1994. My wife was diagnosed and had mastectomy. When she came back home my twelve year old son fainted in the school and turned out to be a victim of brain tumor. Two years of struggles ended with his surgery.

He is fine now. As soon as he came back home my younger daughter who was 11 years old started to have heart problem which turned out to be WPW (a rare heart disease). After her surgery when we took a sigh of relief my mother got burned in Pakistan. I have to rush back to look after her. Before I reached there, she was already died. During my 17 days stay in Pakistan stock market plunged in USA and I lost about 100,000 dollars.
But unfortunately that was not the end of it. Then I got admitted in the hospital for chest pains. And then..... Life goes on. I am just not getting any break. My trust in people is vanishing but fortunately my belief is there as strong as ever. But I need your help. Please guide me through this period of time. It is almost a period of 17 years that I am suffering things one after the other.

Acts Leading To Adultery

I am a happily married woman. I practice Islam. A couple of years while being married I came close to an unrelated friend at work. We did not have sex but our sexual parts somehow touched. I was alarmed and hurried to save my chastity. I have ever since been repentant. What I want to know is whether that act is zina? I repent everyday and I feel nasty and horrible for what I did. I can barely look at my lovely husband without feeling horrible. O Allah forgive me! What can I do?

مجبوری کی وجہ سے غلط کام کا ارتکاب

انسان کو زندگی میں اگر کسی وقت حالات اس قدر مجبور کر دیں کہ صحیح بات کو جاننے کے باوجود غلط بات کو اختیار کرنا اس کی مجبوری بن جائے تو اس صورت حال میں اسے کیا کرنا چاہیے؟


کبیرہ گناہوں کی معافی

سنگین گناہ کی معافی کب تک مانگنی چاہیے، کیا کبیرہ گناہوں کی معافی تمام عمر مانگتے رہنا چاہیے، اور یہ کب اور کیسے معلوم ہو کہ اللہ تعالیٰ نے معاف کر دیا ہے ؟


معافی اور تلافی

اگر کوئی مظلوم بے بسی کی وجہ سے اپنا بدلہ روز قیامت پر ڈال دے اور ظالم بعد میں کبھی اللہ کے حضور میں سچی توبہ کر لے تو کیا اس صورت میں ظلم کرنے والے کے ایسے گناہ بھی معاف ہو جائیں گے جن میں دوسرے لوگوں پر ظلم ہوا ہو ، کیونکہ اس صورت میں مظلوم قیامت کے دن بھی اپنا بدلہ نہیں لے پائے گا ؟


درگزر كرنا

1۔ ربِ کریم کے ہاں توبہ کے دروازے ہر وقت کھلے ہیں لیکن انسانی معاشرے میں ایسا بہت کم ہے ۔ غلطی چھوٹی ہو یا بڑی اگر اس کی معذرت بھی کی جائے تو بہت مشکل ہے اس کی معذرت قبول ہوتی ہے ؟ معاشرے کی اس خرابی پر روشنی ڈالیے ؟

2۔ کوئی اچھا کام کرنے کے لیے کیا یہ بات ضروری ہے کہ یہ ذہن میں ہو کہ اللہ سے اس چیز کا اجر ملے گا ۔ کیا انسان کی مدد عفی اس انسان کی خوشی کے لیے بھی تو ہو سکتی ہے ۔


زنا کی معافی

اگر کسی آدمی سے زنا ہو جائے تو آخرت میں اس جرم کی معافی کے لیے اسے دنیا میں کیا کرنا چاہیے؟
