Making tawbah and crying over one’s sins

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am very sinful. Repeatedly I make tauba but I break it all the time by repeating my sins. My questions are as follows:

1. Should I stop doing good Amaal like coming out in Jamaat or sitting in the front saff of the Musjid?

2. When giving Bayaans in Jamaat, I feel hypocritical. Should I stop giving these bayaans?

3. Should I stop travelling to holy places because I am filthy with sins?



1. You should go on trying and crying for your wrongs. It will be even better to consult a shaikh and try and remedy your problems, Who knows, which tear of yours may be liked by Allah Ta`ala and it may destroy all the wrongs that you committed.

2. Continue.

3. As 1.

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