Day Questions

According to me, a person must repent in a state of purity or in the position of prostration or standing facing Qiblah, if he has committed a lot of major sins i.e. not praying the obligatory prayers and fasts. So if a person does this, will the past major sins be forgiven?

Repentance is regret and determination to avoid committing sins in the future. Being in the state of purity, prayers or fasting is not part of it. Yes, it is recommended to repeatedly seek forgiveness whenever sins are remembered. A devotee is expected to have high hope in Almighty Allah’s acceptance of the repentance and the forgiveness of sins. Almighty Allah said: “O my slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgives all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (39:53).
