Sincere Repentence

What is Sincere Repentance

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question:

How do you know if you are truly repentant? because I always feel bad for my sins & ask forgiveness – (all past sins) but then I think ‘am I only saying I’m sorry so I don’t go to hell or because I’m really sorry for it??’

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

Allah Most High says, “Turn towards Allah, O believers, every one of you, so that you may be successful.” (24:31)

And He says, “Ask your Lord for forgiveness and then turn in repentance to Him,” (11:3) and He says, “O you who believe! Turn in sincere repentance to Allah.” (66:8)

The Prophet (Allah bless him & give him peace) said, �The one who repents from sin is like the one who never sinned.� [Ibn Maja (3240)] He also said, �Remorse is repentance.� [Ibn Maja (4242) and Ahmad (3387)]

Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Allah will turn towards anyone who turns in repentance before the sun rises from the place it set.” [Muslim
