Thinking of a na-mahram girl

Q: I used to like a girl when I was 9 years old and now I am 15. So still I like that girl and her thoughts just make me cry. So the question is that is this haraam? If yes, what can I do to forget?


A: Yes this is haraam. Make sincere tawbah to Allah Ta’ala for this sin. Do not deliberately think about her and if her thought crosses your mind,  then ignore it and do not pay any attention to it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ ﴿١﴾ الَّذِينَ هُمْ فِي صَلَاتِهِمْ خَاشِعُونَ ﴿٢﴾ وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ عَنِ اللَّغْوِ مُعْرِضُونَ ﴿٣﴾ وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِلزَّكَاةِ فَاعِلُونَ ﴿٤﴾ وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِفُرُوجِهِمْ حَافِظُونَ ﴿٥﴾ إِلَّا عَلَى أَزْوَاجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَ ﴿٦﴾
