CONCEALING OF SINS THAT REQUIRES HADD.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Question:

As Salaam  Alaikum!!
With due respect Mufti sb I wanted to ask a question. Please reply to it as it is urgently needed.

If someone commits a sin requiring of Hadd penalty for example Zina or drinking wine so if Allah conceals his sin, should he conceal it as well and not confess in Islamic court. 99%of scholars of both previous and modern times says that it is better to conceal and reform yourself. They formed this opinion on the basis of several Ahadith from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) which point out that concealing is better if Allah has concealed you.
So kindly guide

Jazak Allah

 

Answer:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

Yes. One should conceal it and make Tawbah (repentance) to Allah. He should not tell anyone of the sin he committed.

And Allah Knows best
