Assalam o Alaikum everybody,

Please read my questions carefully and answer them in easy english and details if possible, thank you!

1) I want to know that if a person repeatedly repeats sins and everytime asks for forgiveness and in the end, his strong willpower finally makes him never repeat that sin again, will he still be punished in afterlife?

2) If a person has watched porn many times as a teen but everytime before doing he tries to control himself but cannot control and in the end he feels regret and asks for forgiveness, will he be ever forgiven? If at once a moment cames that hes able to control himself and never watches it again will he be forgiven?

3) If early few years (3-4 years) of life of a teenager have been spent in disobeying Allah such as masturbating, watching porn but the later life of him has been spent as a very loyal muslim who follows everything strictly and totally spends his life properly as what a true muslim is expected to do, will he face punishment for his early life sins? What if they were forgiven, will he still face punishments?

Thats all to ask.

Asalaam o alaikum, Brother Ahmed, We can never ask for forgiveness enough, nor to give thanks enough, nor to praise Allah enough. So do these things often with true sincerity, and promise never to do the bad things again. So seek forgivenss, give thanks for all you have, and praise Allah.

Ask Allah for strength and steadfastness, and true Imam. Punishments in the afterlife, is dependent on our good deeds, in contrast to our bad deeds. The more good we do, that can out way the bad, then this is better. Only Allah knows the true extent of what punishments are likely. Please concentrate on doing as much good as possible, and refrain from all the bad things, temptations in this life.

The Evil one threatens you with poverty and bids you to conduct unseemly. Allah promiseth you His forgiveness and bounties. And Allah careth for all and He knoweth all things. Al-Baqara, Chapter 2, Verse 268)

Those who show patience, Firmness and self-control; who are true (in word and deed); who worship devoutly; who spend (in the way of Allah); and who pray for forgiveness in the early hours of the morning. Aal-e-Imran, Chapter 3, Verse 17)

Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth, prepared for the righteous,- Aal-e-Imran, Chapter 3, Verse 133)

And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their own souls, earnestly bring Allah to mind, and ask for forgiveness for their sins,- and who can forgive sins except Allah?- and are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in (the wrong) they have done. Aal-e-Imran, Chapter 3, Verse 135)
