do the punishment for committing adultery for misguided Muslim brothers apply.
I have been asked by a repenting brother whether he needs to admit his sin and then accept the lashes he must receive.
Also is it our duty to bare witness to such acts in order to insure that the sinner is punished even if they do not wish to repent

718 Sins Aslaam Alaikum,
I know a Muslim man from work who wrongly touched his daughter but now he fully recognizes his mistake and is very, very sorry. The man vows it will never happen again. The mother and the daughter have truly forgiven him from their hearts. They live in America where it is very diffucult to raise a family well without both the mother and the father. They have 6 children and the whole family is willing to live together. Is there any way to make the husband and wife relationship Islamically legal once again? Please get back to us as soon as possible with a solution that allows the whole family to live together in a way that is legal in Islam. Aslaam Alaikum

1120 Attending a kaffir wedding Assamalaikum,

My name is Krishti and I am a young Muslim girl living in Sydney. One of my closest friends (a female of my age) was born into a Muslim family but neither she nor her family are practising Muslims (although they observe Islamic days such as Eid).

Recently she became engaged to a non-Muslim male and he will not convert to Islam. I realise it is haram for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim male.

My question is, if I attend her wedding, am I committing a sin? If I attend her wedding or other pre-wedding events, is that a way of me showing I am validating her sinful decision?

Am I allowed to attend her wedding and not participate in any haram activities such as dancing or drinking alcohol? Or is my mere attendance considered a sin?

Please provide me with some advice relating to this. If it is a sin, how would you recommend declining the invitation given we are long time friends?

I also wanted to know if Muslims are allowed to attend weddings of non believers if they refrain from haram activities (such as drinking)?

Your advice is appreciated.

1168 Intercourse I am Practicing muslim , i was with a girl and had no intention of intercourse ,when things got intimate i just put my tip of penis in and around her vagina but never tried to push it in.

Please tell me what to do , i am in a miserable situation and need urgent help .Does this count as Zina?. I can not live with this idea in my mind .I have been crying and begging God for forgiveness
