Q: I went with a guy to his house three times when his family was away and without the knowledge of my own family. We kissed and I removed my shirt for him and he sucked and licked my breasts, but I kept my pants on and we did not have any sexual intercourse. We just got intimate to this extent and nothing more. I am now regretful of all of this and want to repent sincerely to Allah. Will this be considered as committing adultery? How do I ask for Allah’s forgiveness?


A: This is also a type of adultery. Sincerely ask Allah Ta`ala forgiveness, and since you cannot control your feelings you should hurry and get married.

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