Questions Involving The Day Of Judgment.

Will the sins we have committed be made public on the day of judgement as some Christians believe will happen, or will it be kept between ourselves and Allah?

When someone comes to Islam, will the things they had done previous to being a Muslim be completely erased (If I was taught right then I already know the answer for this)?

If someone committed a sin while Muslim (raised as Muslim or after their reversion) and turns from it, forsaking it, will it too be erased and forgotten by Allah or will the believer still be punished for it?

I am asking cause I can't find a straight answer to these specific questions, and I know how well some of you here are good at digging out answers. :)

First question: Yes, everyone will know your sin. Even an atom worth of sin will be seen by everyone.

Second: Yes, all sins will be erased. But (from my understanding) they would still have to go through a very long Barzakh for cleansing.

Third: Any sins forgiven by Allah (swt) will not be punished (Allah doesn't forget our sins, but he erases our scrolls)

Allah knows best!!

SO by your answer, when Allah forgives your sin and erases our "scrolls" then only yourself and Allah would know. No one else, right?

I was reading that if our good deeds out weigh our bad, our scroll will be handed to our right hand and that means we are granted Jinnah, but if our bad deeds out weigh our good, our scroll will be handed to our left hand and we will be going to Hell. Is this correct? Sometimes you never know if something is correct or not.

Yes, once a sin is erased no one will know of it. Its between Allah (swt) and you.

This is true too. If our good deeds outweigh our bad ones our scrolls will be handed in our right hand, but that doesn't mean we are not responsible for the sins we have committed. For example, if our good deeds turn out to be 51%, and bad 49%, we would still have to take care of those 49% bad deeds. Only 100% good deeds lets you enter Jannah

Everything will be exposed :/

[69.18]

That Day, you will be exhibited [for judgement]; not hidden among you is anything concealed.

Correct. The moment you receive your record is the moment you know whether you enter heaven or hell.

[69.19-20-21-22]

So as for he who is given his record in his right hand, he will say, "Here, read my record!

Indeed, I was certain that I would be meeting my account."

So he will be in a pleasant life

In an elevated garden,

Surah 69 has great info concerning judgement day, you might want to read it :). http://quran.com/69

What do you mean by taking care of them?

Sorry for all the questions, but as I said sometimes it is hard to find specific answers to questions.

Converting to Islam will erase your previous sins. However, your previously good deeds will not be recorded. There are two reasons for this. Our good deeds are raised by our prayers and the intention of seeking nearness to Allah. Accordingly, 'Muslims' who do not offer their ritual prayers are not rewarded for their deeds and those who do not carry the intention of seeking nearness to Allah won't be rewarded. As well for those who pray but do not carry the intention and those who have the intention but do not pray.

As long as you seek forgiveness, Allah will forgive your sins no matter how many times you commit them.

Tradition One of Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (pbuh)'s companions asked him the significance of the verse: 'O you who believe! Repent to Allah with a sincere repentence.' to which he replied, 'It is never to commit that sin again.' His companion asked: 'But which of us can [be so strong as to] never return to committing the sin?' Imam replied: 'O Abu Muhmmad! Most surely, from among His servants, Allah loves the servant who is tried and tempted with sin, yet frequently turns to Him in repentance.'

[al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 314, no. 4]

However, there are prerequisites to repenting and among these are to return what is right, i.e. correcting your mistake, and burning your flesh [with repentance] until a new [flesh] emerges.

Thanks! Insha'Allah I will know the Quran as good as I knew the Bible some day.

Are you saying to self inflict pain and damage to your body?

As i stated earlier, only purest humans can enter Jannah which is place closest to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. So, most of us will be going through a "cleansing" process. If we have sins (no matter the amount) first comes Allah (swt) mercy which might wipe some sins, then Intercession of "those given permission". Even after that if there are sins left, then the person is put in fire.

I read a hadith from Imam Masoomen (as) that even someone who misses a single prayer will taste fire.

I broke it down to really basics, there are obviously a lot more to it.

I came across this Hadith which addresses the issue

ãÍãÏ Èä íÍíì¡ Úä ÃÍãÏ Èä ãÍãÏ Èä ÚíÓì¡ Úä ÇÈä ãÍÈæÈ¡ Úä Ìãíá Èä ÕÇáÍ¡ Úä ÃÈí ÚÈíÏÉ¡ Úä ÃÈí ÌÚÝÑ Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã ÞÇá: Åä äÇÓÇ ÃÊæÇ ÑÓæá Çááå Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå ÈÚÏ ãÇ ÃÓáãæÇ ÝÞÇáæÇ: íÇ ÑÓæá Çááå ÃíÄÎÐ ÇáÑÌá ãäÇ ÈãÇ ßÇä Úãá Ýí ÇáÌÇåáíÉ ÈÚÏ ÅÓáÇãå¿ ÝÞÇá áåã ÑÓæá Çááå Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå: ãä ÍÓä ÅÓáÇãå æÕÍ íÞíä ÅíãÇäå áã íÃÎÐå Çááå ÊÈÇÑß æÊÚÇáì ÈãÇ Úãá Ýí ÇáÌÇåáíÉ æãä ÓÎÝ ÅÓáÇãå æáã íÕÍ íÞíä ÅíãÇäå ÃÎÐå Çááå ÊÈÇÑß æÊÚÇáì ÈÇáÇæá æÇáÂÎÑ

Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Isa from Ibn Mahbub from Jamil b. Salih from Abi Ubaydah from Abi Ja'far Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã who said: some people came to the messenger of Allah Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå after they had converted to Islam, so they said: O messenger of Allah, will a man from among us be punished for the sins that he had comitted in the Jahiliyyah after accepting Islam?

so the messenger of Allah Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå said to them: the one whose Islam is perfected and whose certainity in belief is true then Allah ÊÈÇÑß æÊÚÇáì will not punish him for what he had done in the Jahiliyyah, but for the one whose Islam is lowly and whose certainity in belief is false then Allah ÊÈÇÑß æÊÚÇáì will punish him for the first of his deeds (i.e. those before Islam) and the last of them (i.e. which came following acceptance of Islam).

This Sahih Hadith shows that those who do not perfect their Islam after conversion, and whose Yaqin in the Iman is not correct, then even their sins before accepting Islam will be considered by Allah ÊÈÇÑß æÊÚÇáì and they will face its consequences.

I say: all converts should therefore make sure that they build upon their Islam, and solidify their Iman, so as to get the benefit of having their past sins [before conversion] erased.

This response is without doubt late. However, to avoid further misunderstandings, it shall, Inshallah, be explained.

This [burning] is rather a metaphor used by Amir al-Mu'minin 'Ali ibn Abi Talib (pbuh) meaning that your recite istighfar [i.e. repentence] until your lips becomes dry and a new cover emerges. In other words, you repeat it abundantly.

AOA

The burning part or the new flesh emerges is when Imam Ali (as) talked about fasting. Quoting that part of the hadith below;

Fifth, that you attend to the flesh of your body that had grown on unlawful nourishment so that it melts away as a result of grief and mourning and the skin adheres to the bones, after which new flesh grows there between. Sixth, that you make your body taste the pain of obedience in the same way as it tasted earlier the pleasure of sinfulness. When you have done these things then say Astaghfirul¬lah!
