Answered by Ustadha Raidah Shah Idil

Question: Assalam alaikum,

Is there any hope for me to repent to Allah after all of these sins I committed? My sins have increased so much. I’m scared of asking Allah for forgiveness and I’m shy and ashamed.

Answer: Assalamualaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray this finds you well. May Allah make things easier for you.

Hope

“And seek the Forgiveness of Allah, certainly, Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Qur’an, 4:106]

There is always hope in Allah’s forgiveness. Feeling ashamed of your sin is a good sign. Focus on Allah’s Mercy and don’t dwell on your sins. Plan to do better next time.

I pray that Allah grants you the ability to make good on your repentance.
