The first important thing about “can we repent for Zina?” what I will explain now is “forgiveness for Zina”. I want you to understand that first before you read any more explanations in this article. Why? Because that is one of the focus of our discussion now.

Zina is one of the major sins according to Islam. That’s why Islam strictly forbids Muslims to commit Zina. One of the severe torments for people who commit Zina is that later in Hell their vital organs will emit a very unpleasant odor that can torture them.

I’m sure there isn’t a single person who doesn’t make mistakes. Even some people have made very fatal mistakes, such as Zina. Some Muslims have done that. That’s why, for Muslims who have committed Zina, I hope they will regret the act. Regret for sin is one of the conditions for Allah to accept one’s repentance.

In addition, Muslims who have committed Zina are strongly encouraged to hope that Allah will forgive their sins. They must not stop expecting that, because it is one way for Allah to forgive them.

One thing is for sure that all Muslims must not forget: that Allah specifically forbids them to give up hope for Allah’s mercy! Allah is the most merciful and forgiving God. It is not difficult for Allah to forgive all kinds of sins, including Zina.

That’s a brief explanation of “forgiveness for Zina”. As Muslims, we must understand that.

Zina in Quran and Hadith

The second important thing about “can we repent for Zina?” what I will explain now is “Zina in the Quran and Hadith. I want you to understand that so that you always remember that Zina is a very big sin.

As for the Quran about Zina what I mean is as follows:

الزَّانِيَةُ وَالزَّانِي فَاجْلِدُوا كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمَا مِائَةَ جَلْدَةٍ ۖ وَلَا تَأْخُذْكُمْ بِهِمَا رَأْفَةٌ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ ۖ وَلْيَشْهَدْ عَذَابَهُمَا طَائِفَةٌ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Women who commit Zina and men who commit Zina, then beat each one of them with a hundred strokes. And do not have mercy on both of them in carrying out (the provisions) of Allah’s religion, that is, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let (in carrying out) their punishment be witnessed by a group of believers.

وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَدْعُونَ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ وَلَا يَقْتُلُونَ النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا يَزْنُونَ وَمَنْ يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ يَلْقَ أَثَامًا يُضَاعَفْ لَهُ الْعَذَابُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَيَخْلُدْ فِيهِ مُهَانًا * إِلَّا مَنْ تَابَ وَآمَنَ وَعَمِلَ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا فَأُولَئِكَ يُبَدِّلُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ حَسَنَاتٍ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا

And people who do not worship other gods with Allah and do not kill a soul that is forbidden by Allah (kill him) except with the right (reason), and does not commit Zina, whoever does this, surely, he will get (retribution) of sin (his). (ie) the punishment will be multiplied for him on the Day of Resurrection and he will be eternal in that punishment, in a state of humiliation, except those who repent, believe, and do righteous deeds; then it is their evil that Allah replaced with good. And it is Allah Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.

As for the hadith about Zina what I mean is as follows:

إِذَا زَنَى الرَّجُلُ خَرَجَ مِنْهُ الإِيمَانُ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ كَالظُّلَّةِ فَإِذَا انْقَطَعَ رَجَعَ إِلَيْهِ الإِيمَانُ

If a person commits Zina, then his faith decreases (the light of his faith is lost) as if he is being covered by a cloud (above his head). If he is free from Zina, then that faith will return to him.

إِنَّ مِنْ أَشْرَاطِ السَّاعَةِ أَنْ يُرْفَعَ الْعِلْمُ، وَيَثْبُتَ الْجَهْلُ، وَيُشْرَبَ الْخَمْرُ، وَيَظْهَرَ الزِّنَا

Indeed, among the signs of the coming of the Last Day are the knowledge of being lifted up, the amount of ignorance, the drunk of khamr (many people drink khamr), and the openly committed Zina (many people commit Zina openly).

That is a brief explanation of Zina in the Quran and hadith. As Muslims, we must understand that.

Can We Repent for Zina?

The third important thing about “can we repent for Zina?” what I’m going to explain now is a specific answer. If we read Islamic literacy about Zina, then we will find the answer that we can repent for Zina.

We can find an explanation that we can repent for Zina in the following verses of the Quran and hadith:

أَلَمۡ يَعۡلَمُوٓاْ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ يَقۡبَلُ ٱلتَّوۡبَةَ عَنۡ عِبَادِهِۦ وَيَأۡخُذُ ٱلصَّدَقَٰتِ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلتَّوَّابُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ١٠٤

Do they not know that Allah accepts repentance from His servants and takes the alms, and that Allah is the Oft-returning (to mercy), the Merciful? (At-Taubah [9]; 104).

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِنَّ اللهَ يَقْبَلُ تَوْبَةَ الْعَبْدِ مَا لَمْ يُغَرْغِرْ . رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Abdullah bin Umar, from the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, “Verily Allah accepts the repentance of a servant as long as he has not experienced naza’ (arriving of the soul in the throat when a person is about to die).” The hadith was narrated by at-Tirmidhi.

Dua for Forgiveness of Zina

Now, after we understand some brief explanations about Zina, maybe one thing we should know is Dua for forgiveness for Zina. To be honest, there are many prayers that can be said for Allah to forgive someone who has committed Zina. One of them is reading Istighfar.

There are many types of Istighfar that we can read. One of them is Sayyidul Istighfar. Sayyidul Istighfar is one of the best Istighfar to repent.

As for Sayyidul Istighfar, what I mean is as follows:

اَللُّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّيْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِيْ وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوْءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ , وَأَبُوُءْ بِذَنْبِيْ , فَاغْفِرْلِيْ , فَإِنَّهُ لَايَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوْبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

O Allah, You are my Lord. There is no god but You. You created me. I am Your servant. I am always in Your promises and I promise You according to my ability. I take refuge in You from the bad things I have done. I acknowledge all the blessings You have done give it to me. I confess my sin. So, forgive me. Truly, no one can forgive all sins except You.

That is a brief explanation of “can we repent for Zina?”. Hope it is useful! Amen!
