Assalamualaikum,

I have few important questions which need answers urgently. Will Allah forgive shirk? What if you get shirk thoughts? What if you say things that may be shirk? And what if you do things that may be shirk? What if you don't want these shirk things and really want to be a good muslim?

Please answer my all of my questions, one by one and please answer them separately

One more question, if I have thought, said, done, or etc. anything shirk, what can I do to get Allah's forgiveness and how?

Please answer my questions

Thank you very much

Allah Hafez.

Allah سبحانه و تعالى may forgive all sins if you sincerely repent before death. This includes shirk.

• If you get 'thoughts'/waswas (whispers from Satan) but you hate it and would not dare utter them out loud, then this is a good sign, of clear faith.. as our beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said. So in that case you should seek refuge in Allah سبحانه و تعالى from Satan.

• If you commit an act of shirk (believe it, say it, or do an act of shirk), then you have to repent immediately, and never return to it again. There are three parts of sincere repentance - ask God for forgiveness, regret the sin, and be determined never to return to the sin again. Ask Him for forgiveness in general - for shirk committed intentionally or unintentionally.

وعليكم السلام و رحمة الله وبركاته

A few more questions, what do you mean "in general"? Do I have to nafl namaaz to get Allah's forgiveness? What do I do if it increases when I ask Allah for His forgiveness? Do I have to repent for each and every act shirk from my past? What if I don't remember them all? And can I ask Allah for forgiveness in my mind/head instead of out loud?

I am sorry for so many questions. Thank you in advanced.

I mean that you can ask Allah سبحانه و تعالى to forgive you for all of your sins at once, including those that you do unintentionally/unknowingly or don't remember. You do not have to do nafl prayer, but it is good to do to cancel out evil deeds. You might want to do salat al-tawbah (two rakahs).
