I've often wonderd what happens if someone turns away from Islam but then reverts. The onlything I've come about in the Quran on this ( and I'm not too well versed in the Quran yet) is saying that ifone is flippant ( turns away, reverts, turns away again, reverts again) thAt his destination is hellfire but what about the person who gets led astray by some Vhristian group as a teen and later on in college searches for truth and finds he's back at Islam and is truly repentive of having turned away?
alsalamo alykom السلام عليكم , sisterthe general concept in Islam is "the repentance door is fully open tell death
(when the spirit reaches the throat)"
004.137 Y: "Those who believe, then reject faith, then believe (again) and (again) reject faith, and go on increasing in unbelief,- Allah will not forgive them nor guide them nor guide them on the way"
This verse have many explanations, the most near either the one who do this intentionally (playing a game with the god) or the hypocrites who do it all the time. this one will accustomed to that game and will be totally confused about the truth.
I believe If a sergeant in the army alarmed his unit about the enemies' attack, then after their readiness they discovered he was intentionally lied on them. how his unit will see him. What if he repeated this….....!!
While on the other hand if his collogue did the same because of delusion or the wind or any reasonable reason, no problem then,..……
Allah tells in the Quran:
005.039 Y: But if the thief repents after his crime, and amends his conduct, Allah turneth to him in forgiveness; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
019.060 Y: Except those who repent and believe, and work righteousness: for these will enter the Garden and will not be wronged in the least,-
And there are many Hadeethes supported that:
" Allah will not account the Moslem for un-intentional mistakes, forgetting, and doing something under force"
"Allah will be happy with his servant repentance more than a man was surly die in the middle of a barn dessert while suddenly been saved"
"A man killed 99 persons and asked about repentance while the religious consulter told him, there is no repentance for your case, the man killed him. while he still need to repent, he asked a scholar who told him: who can hinder the god mercy to reach you...........Allah forgave him"Yes, the door is fully open, but who told you, you have enough time to get into it. Death may attack the man at any moment.
Who will try to miss-use the god mercy, or to play the game with him, He will be the real looser.
Allah knows best
