Forget friend sin

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, if one sincerely hates the sin or the deed committed which transgresses the boundaries of Allah Subhanah, and sincerely fears the standing in the Presence of the Majestic Lord on an Inevitable Day; it would make it easy to forget and stay away from the person who invites others to the world of sin.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 79 Surah Naziat verses 35-41:

35 The Day when Man shall remember (all) that he strove for

36 And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see

37 Then for such as had transgressed all bounds

38 And had preferred the life of this world

39 The Abode will be Hell-Fire;

40 And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (tribunal) and had restrained (their) soul from lower Desires

41 Their abode will be the Garden.


Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, regardless of whatever sins one might have committed in ones past, if one turns to their Lord seeking sincere repentance before ones appointment of death, it is expected that they will find their Lord Most Merciful, Oft-Forgiving.


The conditions or ways to seek sincere Taubah or Repentance from the Merciful Lord are:

One is aware that he has sinned, and feels sorry and ashamed at his sin.

Makes a solemn covenant and promise with Allah that he will not repeat his sin again.

Turns to Allah and seeks forgiveness, before he has met with his appointment of death.

Is a believer and does righteous good deeds thereafter.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verses 53-54: (O Prophet) say: O My servants who have wronged their own souls.Do not despair of Allahs Mercy! Surely, Allah forgives all sins. He indeed is the All Forgiving, All Merciful. Return to your Lord and submit to Him before the scourge overtakes you; for then you may get no help from anywhere.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 135-136: Allah likes such good people very much, who, if ever they commit a base deed or wrong their own soul by the commission of a sin, remember Allah instantly, and ask for forgiveness from Him for their shortcomings. For who, but Allah, can forgive sins? (And Allah loves those) who do not knowingly persist in the wrongs they did. These will be rewarded with forgiveness from Allah, and with Gardens beneath which canals flow, and they will reside therein forever! How excellent is the reward of those who do good deeds!


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 54: When those come to you who believe in Our Signs, say: "Peace be on you! Your Lord had inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy. Verily if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented and amended (his conduct), Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."


Remain constant in seeking forgiveness from your Lord Most Merciful for the deeds done in ignorance, and also implore Allah Subhanah to guide your friend who introduced you to the world of sin to the Straight Path; it is expected that you will find your Lord Most Merciful, Oft Forgiving.


Man has not been bestowed the right to choose his relatives; but man indeed has a right to choose his friends; and it could only be considered righteousness to choose friends who are ones sincere well-wishers not only in this transient and short life, but also in ones eternal life in the Hereafter. Although your friend betrayed his friendship by introducing you to the world of sin and thus exposing you to the Wrath and Anger of Allah Subhanah; you, as a sincere believer in Allah and the Last Day, fulfill the tenets of your friendship by wishing him well and imploring your Lord in your supplications to forgive him and guide him aright.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
