Is hidden sins permitted
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 120:
120 Eschew (to keep far away, shun, avoid, scrupulously guard against, etc.) all sin, whether open or secret: those who earn sin will get due recompense for their "earnings."
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 151:
151 Say: "Come! I will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from: join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents: kill not your children on a plea of want; We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not nigh to shameful deeds whether open or secret; take not life which Allah hath made sacred except by way of justice and law: thus doth He Command you that ye may learn wisdom.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 33:
33 Say: The things that my Lord hath indeed forbidden are: shameful deeds whether open or secret; (all) sins and trespasses against truth or reason; assigning of partners to Allah for which he hath given no authority; and saying things about Allah of which ye have no knowledge.
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, any act which transgresses the clearly prescribed Boundaries of The Lord Most Majestic Most Supreme are sins..and absolutely regardless if one sins against oneself or against others, absolutely regardless of whether one does it openly or in absolute secrecy.all such transgressions are absolutely and categorically forbidden unto the believers. If one dies in a state whereby they do not seek sincere repentance for their sins, one would have to account for each and every one of their unpardoned sins in the Presence of their Lord Most High on that Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Judgment!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 99 Surah Anbiyaa verses 6-8:
6 On that Day (of Judgment) will men proceed in companies sorted out to be shown the deeds that they (had done).
7 Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good see it!
8 And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil shall see it.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verse 47:
47 We shall set up Scales of Justice for the Day of Judgment so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be (a deed no more than) the weight of a mustard seed (good or evil), We will bring it (to account): and enough are We to take account.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
