My past is haunting me……

I’d like to share an incident that took place in my life some years ago and I still feel bad for not acting the way I should have acted. I met this girl not knowing that she was 4 weeks pregnant by her boyfriend at the time. But Alhamdulilah I came to know about it just after a day of being in a relationship with her. She took me to a doctor as she wasn’t feeling okay. I was shocked and she confirmed her ex was responsible. I thanked Allah for revealing everything so early. I kept quite and didn’t utter a word and the doctor thought I was the father. For some reason I didn’t wanna disgrace her, so I played along. The doctor left us and she confessed everything and decided to have an abortion single-handedly. She claimed she’d be banish from her Christian home by her family and stuff. Personally, I didn’t care what she was gonna do but I advised her to inform the father which she declined. I’m “like okay not my child not my idea” it’s on you. Everything was arranged by the doctor she took me and she had an abortion but I still feel bad for not snitching on her to her family and for partially financing the process. Just couldn’t have abandoned her but I feel I should have distant myself. Now I feel so horrible for cooperating in a sin that has absolutely nothing to do with me. I’m confused and worried. Please help me 🙏🏿

Thank you for your question

since you weren’t directly involved in abortion (unlike doctor and the mother) there is no blood money on you, although we cannot go back and fix our mistakes but what we can do is to repent from it and compensate it with good deeds.
