I have a story to tell. So sit back with ease and take heed of what I am about to say. I was once young, full of the vigour of youth, blessed with good looks and a personality to match. Everyday was a new adventure for me. I took no heed from my parents advice. I was neglectful of my duties to my Lord.
The world was my oyster. I had no worries. Life was for living! I was carefree. Males desired me, females envied me; life was wonderful.
That was a few years ago. Little did I know that my life would change. Today my life is a very different story. Everyday is a torment for me; life feels like a burden and though I am trying to be dutiful towards my Lord, I feel I am not getting very far. Why, I kept asking myself, is my life like this? The answer was staring me in the face.
Id been neglectful towards my Lord. Id been too intoxicated with lust and desire, committed sins that my Lord had warned against. I was so involved in them that I thought I was doing no wrong. In hindsight I was living in sin from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to sleep.
I am a mother now and when I see the youngsters leaving school today, freely mixing with each other and holding hands, I look at them and think, You all think its so right, but you dont know how wrong it is. That is why I thought of writing this letter. If just one of you takes my advice, then my letter is not in vain.
TV, music, magazines all contribute to our desires and actions. I think that it takes a strong and true Believer, someone who truly fears Allah, to walk away from sins especially, zinã (fornication). Let your first touch, your first kiss be with the person youll spend eternity with, your husband or wife. Dont give into a moment of madness, a relationship that may not even last a week.
Allah has given us the ability to do many things, but the one thing He has not given us is the chance to turn back time. Had He done so, I would do it in a second and correct so many wrongs. But I cant have that. My mistakes will be with me for life. You have a chance not to make these mistakes. Dont make them, watch Him bless your life in both worlds.

Asslamualaikum sister, what is important is that you have repented to Allah inshaAllah im sure. And don't forget that Allah is Oft Merciful and Oft Forgiving. Allah loves us more than our mothers do, so think about it, who would care more than Allah. Do not loose hope, as Allah is always by our side. It is Allah who gives us hidayat. We are none to do anything, it is Allah who commands us to speak, think, hear and so on, even a leave can't fall from a tree without the Allah's will. So think about it, do not loose hope. Hope in Allah is what makes us move on and thats what makes us true muslims :) inshaAllah may Allah tallah give u and All Ummah good of this world and hereafter Ameen.
