Asking for forgiveness

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Two days ago I quarreled with my cousin and we both hit each other but after quarreling I realized that I did a very bad thing and next day I went to him for forgiveness and I fell down at his feet and I asked him to forgive me but he is not ready to forgive me at any cost, even though I fell down at his feet and asked him for forgiveness. Kindly guide me what I have to do. I am very guilty but my cousin is not forgiving me. Kindly help me. I am very depressed.


A: You should ask him for forgiveness to a reasonable amount. If he still does not forgive you, then you do not need to worry.

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