Series: Yasir Qadhi - Ask Shaykh YQ
SR Sania asks that she says that she had not been practicing Islam for many years and she did not pray regularly. And now she has repented to Allah. And she is now asking what is to be done with regards to all of the years of Salah that she has not prayed one
hour to sell me Kobe, deca Reja? No, hey, lay him first.
Now, this is the quick q&a. And so I'm not going to go into a lot of detail in reality this question easily deserves and maybe a longer time I will answer both sides and evidences obviously you can understand there are two opinions about this issue. First one says you know, she has to repeat to the best of her capability. And the second one says that once it is gone, it is gone. And I will say that if she is able to repeat, repeat if you're able to do so do so. And if you're not if you really if there's so many years and it is simply not something that is feasible, then follow the other opinion which says that repent to Allah a sincere repentance, which means you must feel a sense of
regret and remorse. And you must increase your is still far. And you must repent internally and externally, internally from your heart and externally from the tongue. And you must increase your good deeds of all genres of sadhaka and of taking care of the poor and feeding the hungry and of generally changing a lifestyle that indicates that you feel that you have missed a lot of good in your previous years and repent to Allah by especially doing extra NFL and extra Sooners and then it shall load data that will be a sufficient, if you like
means of Recompense. And this is of course the second opinion there are two opinions and as for the evidences and whatnot, maybe another time I'll give a longer and lengthier lecture about who said what and what are the evidences In either case, both of these positions are really valid in the sense that both have been held by major scholars and whichever you're able to obviously if you're able to do and make them up obviously you get out of it. Okay laugh and even that group would say you should still repent to Allah because you made a mistake and do all of the others things that I have mentioned and Allah subhana wa tada knows best.
