Will Allah swt forgive a Hypocrite like me?


Aassalamu Aalai Kum . There was a time when I felt that I was a hypocrite and I was really scared of it and I repented and always wanted to cure up my heart and become a true believer and feel it and have a strong faith. I did not want to be among those who think that they are believers but they are actually not. And earlier I had the pain and not even when I know that I am a hypocrite ,the fear to come out of it naturally does not comes out form my heart and I do sins. And now I feel like Allah has cursed and that is really scary and when I think of repentance it does not comes out of my heart and even when I repent I feel like it is not excepted because I am weak in iman.I think that Allah cursed me because I did sins and I asked Allah to forgive me and I promised not to do that sin again then again I committed that sin several time. I have collected the wrath of Allah. I want to cure up my hurt and truly repent out of my heart because I know if I truly repent Allah will forgive and the source of my faith is science and whenever I see a scientific miracle of Quran I feel good and after sometime that happiness fades and I start doubting in that miracle. These is all I am suffering from


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

O you who believe! Turn (in repentance) to Allah with sincere repentance; Perhaps your Lord will remove your evil from you… (Holy Qur’an, 66: 8)

Some of the essentials and conditions for Tawbah are:

  1. To remorse over the past.
  2. The resolution not to return to it ever.
  3. To return to creatures their (formerly usurped) rights so that you meet God Almighty in a state of purity in which no one has any claim against you. 
  4. That you fulfill every duty that you neglected in order to satisfy your obligation in respect to it. 

If you have regretted and repented and asked for forgiveness from Allah(swt) then definitely He will forgive but make sure you do not repeat the sin again but in case if you indulge in the sin again, repent again and don’t get hopeless as this is Satan’s biggest trap for the momineen to make them deviate from the straight path. If you have sinned such as not praying Salat, then you must perform the Qadha of those Salat and fasts and if you have Haqqun Naas such as you haven’t paid other’s rights then you must pay their right such as money etc.

Every time, you feel that you have failed to keep the promise try hard the next time but never leave yourself alone in satan’s custody.

Indeed, Allah is the listener and He knows your intentions you always get back to Him whatsoever and if you have repented with the true heart and not repeated that sin again, make sure He will forgive you and don’t feel that your Tawbah is not accepted.

If you leave the straight path then you must feel that you have collected the wrath of Allah but if you are following His commands then you are on the right path.

Read about hopeless and despair on:

Qur’an is a miracle itself and all of its verses can enlighten the hearts if we understand them. If the conditions of true repentance as mentioned above are fulfilled then stay strong and strengthen your relationship with Allah(swt) by praying 5 times a day, reciting Quran every day.

Basic Types of Nifaq(Hypocrisy):

• Behavioral Nifaq: When outward appearance of person is friendly, giving impression of being sympathetic, supportive and sincere while in reality, it is opposite inside his heart.

• Verbal Nifaq: The state of double-tongued-ness When a person praises and flatters another person or people in front but denounces him or them and speaks slanderous in their .absence.

Regarding Hypocrisy(Nifaq) you can read in detail on:

Before we conclude, it is only wise to remember that we are a weak being. We are prone to mistakes and we can fall into traps. However, it doesn’t mater as long as we are trying and are hopeful of Allah’s mercy. Therefore, you’re good as long as you’re hopeful and trying your best.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
