A Letter of Heartbreak From a Sister
A sister sends a letter of heartbreak regarding zina. Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan give knowledgeable advice.
Shamelessness is one of the biggest problems and one of the biggest sins that are mentioned. It’s a grave matter. At the same time, in the times in which we live, this is the most common sin after disrespect of parents that our youth are involved in. It starts with things through technology like text messaging and Facebook and then it moves on to the actual physical act of zina with Muslims, and among non-Muslims. Dealing with this is a particularly difficult issue because it’s very close to the heart.
Is there hope? Allah commands us in the Qur’an not to lose hope in Him. And He speaks about that ayat of hope in the beginning with a very interesting phrasing: O my slaves. Those who have transgressed and engaged in violations against their own selves, don’t lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. No doubt it is Allah who will cover up the sins, who will forgive the sins, all of them, altogether.
