I dont have any muslim friends. Im 21 years old and so far, everytime I have gone out with my non muslim friends and they have been drinking,I have always managed to say no and stay away from it. On a trip with my friends to another city,I however gave in to temptation once. I know it is wrong but I did not have the will power to say no that time. I I just wanted to see what it was like. I didnt get drunk or anything. I had one really small drink, all of 5 sips. I have the resolve to never ever ever be tempted again however. I got the urge to try out of my system and will never go near anything haraam again.

I cant talk to my parents about this though. I have no muslim friends. I have no one to talk to and guide me now. Help! What should I do now to be forgiven for giving in to sin? Im feeling really guilty and have not been able to pray my salat because I feel like a hypocrite and im too overcome by guilt.

Please help. Tell me what I should do.

Allah swt will forgive you if you repent! Repent, repent and repent and promise to never go back to it.

Hadith Qudsi: "O son of Adam, as long as you call upon Me and put your hope in Me, I have forgiven you for what you have done and I do not mind. O son of Adam, if your sins were to reach the clouds of the sky and then you would seek My forgiveness, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, if you were to come to Me with sins that are close to filling the earth and then you would meet Me without ascribing any partners with Me, I would certainly bring to you forgiveness close to filling it."

Say: "O 'Ibâdî (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allâh, verily Allâh forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful[] (39-53)

Allah swt is truly merciful. My advice to u is to stop talking to your "friends" unless its urgent. If they said to u to drink then I would certainly not be friend them. Thats why I dont even go outside with my friends. I dont go to any parties or nightclubs thanks to Allah swt. May Allah swt guide you and help you. I have been tempted to eat haraam once and drink, but thanks to Allah swt I was saved from the disaster. I hope this answers your question brother!
