Good deeds

Q:

if Someone commits sin jariyah by influencing another to participate in a non Islam religion, what are some good deeds that can expiate this sin? If someone commits sin jariah by influencing another to participate in a gay marriage, what good deeds can expiate this sin? If someone tells someone they are weird, and they themselves are weird, what good deeds could expiate this sin of continuous hypocrisy?

A:

Sometimes the Shaytan attempts to disappoint man by convincing him that his sin is so great that it is unforgivable. This is a great mistake since it undermines a person’s full confidence that Allah forgives all sins as it has been mentioned in many verses in the Quran.

First of all, you have to instruct the person you have misguided by telling him the proper Islamic behavior he should do and how to repent his sins.

By doing so, you should have fulfilled your duty by correcting your mistake. Afterwards you should repent to Allah.

First, your repentance should be meant for the pleasure of Allah. It should not be intended for showing off.

Second, you must express remorse for the sin you have committed.

Third, you must give up this sin.

Fourth, you must have a strong resolute not to make this sin again.

Moreover, you must increase of your righteous and good deeds. Allah says in the Quran, “And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember.” (Hud 11:114)

The Messenger of Allah said, “Fear Allah wherever you are, do good deeds after doing bad ones, the former will wipe out the latter, and behave decently towards people”. (At-Tirmidhi)

Almighty Allah Knows best.
