Repentance - How Do I Know That Allah Accepted My Duas
  • Question:

    How can I get to know that Allah has accepted my repentance and duas as a sign that my heart should be settled?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Know that Allah has said in the Quran that He forgives all sins and listens to every dua. As long as your repentance is sincere, Allah will forgive you should constantly make sure to purify your heart as you ask to be purified from your sins. A person should always have a level of fear that keeps them in the state of repentance but doesn’t cause them to despair.

    As for you supplication, Allah answers all sincere dua but maybe not in the way you want it to be and that is better for you. He may avert an evil from you, reserve your reward for the hereafter, or give you something better in the world. Know however that sincere dua never is in vain.

    We should only be concerned with whether we are doing our part and be assured that Allah is doing His.

    As long as you stay in dua and tawba, you are safe.

    And Allah knows best.
