Staying away from sin

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had heard an incident of the past wherin 3 people where closed in a cave and they each looked at a sinful act of their past to which they abstained and then asked Allah to move the rock blocking the entrance and Allah accepted.

This made me think and some weeks later in a depressed state whilst making dua to Allah, I said such, Oh Allah I will try my best no promises to abstain from this sin, please let me be married now. If I lapse into this sin again will I be accountable now for 2 sins.

1. The sin itself

2. Not abstaining. wrong

I am still not married. Please assist me. I am concerned that I unknowingly might have committed a vow and now I don’t know what to do.


A: Try your best to avoid all those areas that will tempt you to that wrong and make taubah.

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