Can I pray and ask Allah for forgiveness enough or should I disclose my mistakes to my partner?


As-salamu alaykum
Hope all is well. I’m currently facing a dilemma and would appreciate your take on it.
I’ve been with a partner for a while now but I did something unfaithful a couple of months ago. The whole thing led to a couple of secrets all of which I regret tremendously. I stopped all of those secrets and unfaithfulness a few months after and completely changed my ways. I no longer do them, speak to that person, and have asked Allah to forgive me. I ask for forgiveness and pray when I have these negative thoughts but I often feel guilty for what I have done. I’m still with my partner but they have no idea about what I did and if I were to tell them, it would hurt them massively. I also don’t want to because I don’t want to break their heart especially when I’ve stopped and changed my ways. I read somewhere that if I continue to apologize and pray to Allah, than that’s enough. But a part of me still feels guilty because what I did was so disgusting and hate and regret what I did. I really don’t think telling my partner is a good idea because it’ll really be cruel and hurtful. But is me praying and asking Allah for forgiveness enough? Please help me.
Thank you.


Wa Alaikum al-salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

Thank you for your question

Religiously asking forgiveness from Allah (swt) and repenting is enough (specially in cases that might cause problems and issues), but In terms of psychology it maybe daunting,taking advice from a consultant could be useful.
However, Sincerely repenting will definitely suffice.
