    Question: Is there a maafi through astagfaar or any ways for a person who did zina or sodomy (sex with male) or both types of sex (male/female, not wife)?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 307=308/M)

     

    Such a person should repent to Allah and ask for his forgiveness:

    لقولہ علیہ السلام: التائب من الذنب کمن لا ذنب لہ

    Since, there is no Islamic government in India; therefore it is impossible to introduce Islamic penal code. If possible, he should do some charity and should avoid having any relation with the person with whom he involved in sex.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
