Being harassed sexually

Q: I was harassed sexually by force by some people. Is it my mistake and will my prayers be accepted by Allah Ta’ala. I am a male.


A: If there was no negligence on your part which brought about this outcome and you were completely helpless in the situation, then there will be no sin upon you. However as a precaution it is better to make istighfaar.

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