Repentance and tawbah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: From my childhood I was disobedient to Allah Ta’al. I have committed so many major sins. I feel no regrets for the sins I have committed. I have spent all my life in committing sins and I never cared about Allah Ta’ala. But now I want to change for the better. Will Allah accept me? Can I become a good slave keeping in mind my dark past?


A: Definitely Allah Ta’ala will accept you. Sincerely repent to Him from the bottom of your heart and make a firm resolve that you will never return to those sins in the future. Remain in the company of the pious servants of Allah Ta’ala and refrain from all avenues of sin.

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