Assalam-o-alekum

I wanted to ask that one of my friends have commited Zana before marriage but she has married with the same person with whom she had committed this sin.

She was not muslim before marriage and when committed Zana but after marriage she accepted Islam. Now will she be punished at the day of judgement?

Or what alternative can she do for getting forgiveness from Allah?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

As a basic rule, once a person accepts Islam, all that persons sins are forgiven. Rasulullah said:

أن الإسلام يهدم ما كان قبله

 

“Indeed Islam destroys whatever occurred before. (Of sin)” (Muslim)

 

In the light of the above mentioned Hadith, she will not be punished on the Day of Judgement.

 

If the person she committed Zina with was a non Muslim, then her marriage to him has not taken place; as it is prohibited for a Muslim female to marry a non Muslim male.

On the other hand, if the person was a Muslim, then he will have to make sincere Taubah (repentence) to Allah for the major sin he has committed. However, he should not lose hope as Almighty Allah is most Merciful. Allah states in the Holy Quran:

                       

                   لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِنْ رَحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

 

“Do not despair in the mercy of Allah, Indeed Allah forgives all sins. Verily He is the most Forgiving most Merciful.” (Surah Zumar)

 

And Allah knows best
