Repenting from sins

Q: I am 19 years old. I always try my best to avoid sins and Almighty Allah saved me every time from sins especially from zina. There’s a married girl in our flat who asked me many time for zina but Alhamdulillah each and every time I refused. One day, I don’t know what happened to me, I just walked to her door, entered the house. Here, we hugged and kissed each other and did nothing else. We didn’t take off our clothes. While kissing, suddenly I realized that we are doing wrong. I just pulled her away and walked back to my house. Now, I’m feeling extremely shameful of my actions. I want to commit suicide but I can’t do this. I want to make Tawbah. I want to become virtuous again. How can I make tawbah and become virtuous?


A: Allah will definitely forgive. Your remorse and regret is really appreciated by Allah. We feel that you should not go in that direction and try and speed the process of marriage.

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