Q: I was listening to one of your recordings. I came to know that we should not talk about sins in detail when making tawbah.. have I understood correctly? If I mistakenly backbite shouldn’t I say forgive me for backbiting..or forgive me I couldn’t pray fajr today? I am not clear. Can you explain?
A: To seek taubah in this way is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
