View Full Version : Question about adultry
09-01-2007, 03:19 AM
I may become a Muslim. Before looking at Islam I wasn't a good person or husband and nearly committed adultry. We never had sex but we did make out quite a bit. Is this forgivable (I don't know if I can ever forgive myself). I thought the Prophet said that adulteriers are to be stoned at his last sermon in mecca. Any ideas
Yours in humility.

I pray this finds you well.
When a person becomes a Muslim by testifying to his belief in "La ilaha illa Allah Muhammadur Rasul Allah" - None has the right to be worshiped but Allah, and that Muhammad is His Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) - then all of his past sins are forgen; the minor and the major.
The worst sin of all is attributing "godness" to a created being, i.e. anything other than Allah, and even that is forgiven when accepting Islam, so know that all of your past sins will be forgiven and not only forgiven, but rewritten as good deeds into your account!
Kissing someone other than your wife is a big sin, however it is not the same as adultery (sex outside of marriage).

Dear brother, your sincerety does not go un-noticed by the Almighty.
Your questioning shows your purity, May Allah guide you to make the RIGHT decision, for Allah most high says in the Quraan 'The true religion (way of life) with Allah is Islam.
Regarding sin the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said : All the sons of Adam are sinners. But the nest of Sinners are those who repent'

It is true that Allah the Most Merciful and Forgiving will forgive any sin which we sincerely relinquish and feel remorse over. That is one of the Lord's qualities; He forgives and wipes over our mistakes due to the sincere repentance of his weak slaves.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) teaches us that for a sinful person, who takes his relationship with Allah lightly, his sins seem to him to be like flies which he simply swats away casually.
Whilst for the believer with firm faith who yearns to get closer to Allah, his sins seem like a mountain ready to fall on his head and therefore he frequently, if not constantly turns to Allah in hope and fear.
The fact that even though you may have repented but you still can never forget the past is in some ways a good sign. It shows your sincerity.
May Allah Most High shower us with His Mercy and Forgiveness and make us sincere. Amen.
Please remember me in your prayers.
