▪️Advice for a serial fornicator▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

A man committed Zinaa before getting married, then after getting married, again he committed Zinaa, but Allah the Almighty kept this hidden so no one knew about it, and he has repented to Allah the Almighty for this. What is his ruling, and what do you advise him with?

📝 Answer:

He should praise Allah the Almighty for not exposing him, and he should increase in seeking repentance and forgiveness for this evil crime. The severity of this crime on his part is great, so he has to repent and increase in seeking repentance and forgiveness. He should also increase in praying, fasting and giving charity, as this will remove his sins by Allah’s permission.
