Forgiveness Of Sin For The New Muslim. by Taamas111 (f): 6:32pm on January 12
Rufai Oladimeji
, Nigeria.
Question

Can I say to someone who converted to
Islam, "Allah will forgive your sins since you
became a Muslim", without saying Inshaa'
Allah. Or do I say Inshaa' Allah, Allah will
forgive you?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

Muslim reported in a sound Hadeeth that
'Amr Ibn Al 'Aas said: "When Allah instilled
the love of Islam in my heart, I came to
the Prophet and said: Stretch out your
right hand so that I may pledge my
allegiance to you. He stretched out his right
hand. I withdrew my hand. He (the Prophet
) said: What has happened to you, O
'Amr? I replied: I intend to lay down a
condition. He asked: What condition do you
intend to put forward? I said: I should be
granted pardon. He (the Prophet )
observed: "Are you not aware of the fact that
Islam wipes out all the previous (misdeeds)?
Verily migration wipes out all the previous
(misdeeds) and verily the pilgrimage wipes
out all the (previous) misdeeds."
This is good news for all new Muslims that
anyone who converts to Islam all the sins he
committed before becoming Muslim are
forgiven. This is made explicit in the
following verse Allah Says (what means): {Say
to those who have disbelieved, if they cease
(from disbelief) their past will be forgiven.}
[Quran 8:38].

So, what you said to this new Muslim
conforms to the Sunnah even without using
the expression "Inshaa' Allah" as the Prophet
did not use that expression when he
brought the good news to 'Amr Ibn Al 'Aas.
But, if you say "Inshaa' Allah", it is also
acceptable as Allah is not compelled to do
anything. He acts by His Own Will. In fact,
the adherence of the person to Islam, his
guidance to the right path as well as the
forgiveness of his sins all these are by the
Will and Benevolence of Allah.

Allah Knows best.
