Can a former false messenger be forgiven?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know a man that used to write things on the internet and said it was God who told him these things. Can God forgive such a person if they want to become a Muslim? I told him that maybe God can not but since I do not know so much on this subject I ask you here. He says he was probably aware that he might be punished for it eternally because he at that time taught that maybe Islam was true but was a disbeliever. I tell him ofcourse to be a Christian because atleast he did not sin against my God so it will be forgiven.

Tnx!

If he was a non-Muslim, and he converts to Islam, and sincerely practices the religion, then God will forgive all of his past sins inshaAllah.

If he was a Muslim false-messenger/false-prophet/innovator, then God will only forgive him if he guides everyone that he tricked.

@sefket83 was he a popular guy on the internet, with lots of followers? If he was, maybe he could do some kind of statement on his website or on youtube disowning all his past statements and embracing Islam. Because that takes a lot of guts, and for sure Allah would accept his sincerity that way Inshallah.

He was not Muslim but he was aware that maybe Islam is true but for some reason he was not a believer. He said that he himself did not want to do these things but that some evil forced him but ofcourse he is also resonsible.

He had no followers and most people just taught he was deluded or sick but maybe someone believed him.

Sounds like a disorder of a sort. He may need psychological evaluation.

    • Yes it is good news. But we should be cautious not allow something new to emerge. Because end of something is beginning of new thing .
    • Most Shi'a don't pray? May I remind you that being a tarik al salat might be worse than adultery.
    • What are the possible meanings of word "Kitab" in Quranic Arabic?
      It appears that it has a wide range of meanings e.g.,

       كِتَابٌ مَّرْقُومٌ
      Written Book (83:20)

      كِتَابٌ مَّعْلُومٌ
      Term made known (15:4)

      كِتَابٌ يَنطِقُ بِالْحَقِّ
      Book which speaks with truth

      لَكِتَابٌ عَزِيزٌ
      A Mighty Book (41:41)

      كِتَابٌ حَفِيظٌ
      A writing that preserves (50:4)

      And today while I was reciting the chapter 27, I found that the same word "Kitab" is used in the meaning of letter.

      كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ
      Honorable Letter (27:29)

      اذْهَب بِّكِتَابِي هَذَا فَأَلْقِهْ إِلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ تَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ فَانظُرْ مَاذَا يَرْجِعُونَ قَالَتْ يَا أَيُّهَا المَلَأُ إِنِّي أُلْقِيَ إِلَيَّ كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ


      So as per translations, "Kitab" possibly means "Book", "Record", "Writing", "Letter", "Term"...

      Please share with me if you know more possible meanings of word "Kitab" or its root word "Ka Ta Ba"..
    • Out of curiosity - what would you personally require to know that God exits? I mean, do you wanna see a big white fluff of cotton to know God exists or something like that?
    • So now we will have to define sense and perception. Sense is ability to think and perception is ability to understand. And when you understand and think obviously you will deduce somethings.
