Repenting from having intercourse with another man

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In Islam, will I be forgiven for having intercourse with men as I am one myself which I only did twice in my life as a mistake. I want to know if I will be forgiven if I repent and go to paradise. It feels as though I wont and I am really worried because its a major sin and people say I wont be forgiven.


A: If you do repent sincerely, correct yourself and truly show remorse and regret then Allah Ta`ala will definitely forgive you, and you should refrain from all avenues that could lead you to that sin.

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