Repentance for adultry

Q:

I tried to have sex with my married cousin forcefully like i went close to her and started rubbing my body with her only i did nothing else but suddenly i realized that it is wrong and i stepped back and my cousin did not seem to be angry with me now because she loved me and couldn’t marry me i repent to Allah afterwards for what i have done do i have to do any thing else for repentance of what i have done

A:

Waalykum salam

I’m glad you stopped there and realized that it was wrong.
Alhamdulillah!

Repentance in true sense would be to ask forgiveness from Allah AND not to REPEAT the thing again.
This will be counted as a real repentance

May Allah make you successful.
