Repenting to Allah Ta’ala

Q: Me and my wife had an argument. My wife started to pray that May Allah Ta’ala not accept my good deeds, may I not enter Jannat and may jahanum be Wajib on me. She also prayed that may my good deeds done in the past not be accepted. She was saying she is oppressed and Allah Ta’ala listens to the oppressor. I also started to pray that may she not enter Jannah and go to Jahanum and may her fast, Salaah, studying not be accepted. I fear now if one of our Duas gets accepted. We realized our mistake and asked for forgiveness from one another. We also asked for forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala. My question is that do we have to do any kufarah. I fear that what if Allah Ta’ala accepts her prayer as we do not know the hour of acceptance.


A: Do not pay attention to these thoughts. Allah Ta’ala is most merciful and most compassionate. If you both sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala, then Allah Ta’ala will forgive you’ll.

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