Repenting from sin

Q: I had complete relations many times with a boy without nikaah. Now I am so guilty I apologize to Allah. But what may I do that Allah forgive me and I become close to Allah. How is it possible? please help me.


A: Sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala from the bottom of your heart and make a firm resolve that you will not return to this sin again. All those mediums that can lead you to this sin or any other type of sin (e.g. internet, TV, cellphone, joining wrong company, wrong literature, going to wrong places, etc.) remove it from your life so that this does not tempt you from falling into this same sin again. Remain in pious company and observe strict purdah from all na mahrams. Refer to and…

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