How Sins will be Destroyed according to the Quraan
by Irshad Mahmood - Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre
This Question arose from Christian’s thought. So first we need to understand the Bible definition of Sins and Destruction of Sins.
If I am not wrong, according to Christian’s Thought, Sins exists in the world. BUT if you believe in Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) same as do the Christians then your sin is destroyed, since the Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was Crucified to wash and destroy Christians sins according to the Christian Believe.
Jesus Christ was God in the flesh (John 1:1, 14). When Jesus died on the cross, His death was an infinite death because He was God, and therefore infinite and eternal. Jesus’ death was sufficient to pay for all the sins that have ever been committed (2 Corinthians 5:21). All we must do is place our faith in Him and our sins will be forgiven (John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10). That is why Jesus had to die. His death was the only way our sins could be forgiven.
Question: "Do Christians have to keep asking for forgiveness for their sins?"
Answer: Yes, we should confess our sins to God as soon as we are aware that we have sinned. However, we do not always need to be asking God for forgiveness. When a person places his faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, all of his sins are forgiven. That includes past, present and future, big or small. Believers do not have to keep asking for forgiveness or repenting in order to have their sins forgiven. Jesus died to pay the penalty for all of our sins, and when they are forgiven, they are all forgiven (Colossians 1:14; Acts 10:43). What we are to do is confess our sins: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
Yes, Christians do sin (1 John 1:8), but the Christian life is not to be identified by a life of sin. Believers are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). We have the Holy Spirit in us producing good fruit (Galatians 5:22-23). A Christian life should be a changed life. I would have serious doubts about a person who claims to be a believer yet lives a life that says otherwise. Christians are forgiven no matter how many times they sin, but at the same time Christians should live a progressively more holy life as they grow closer to Christ.
Here the Question arises
that if the sins are destroyed then why are there so many Christians go
to the Jails. Even in Year 2004, in the news we came to know that Many
(not one and two) Christian Priests were charged on Adultery cases.
Also few years back, Mr. Bill Clinton (former President of the
Yes, similar to the Christian believe, the Sins will be destroyed and there will be no sins in the Heaven, BUT Allah (God) does not need any special act to destroy Sins, like Crucifixion of Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) to destroy the Sins etc. Several Times Origin of Sins starts from Thought, which is Invisible. It works so simple that when Allah says “Be! And it is”. In the Heaven there will be no Sins.
The Originator of the heavens and the earth! When He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

In the Heaven there will be no sins. Since Allah said that so we have to believe on that.
On thrones decorated, Reclining on them, facing one another. Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink; They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted, And fruits such as they choose, And the flesh of fowl such as they desire. And pure, beautiful ones, The like of the hidden pearls: A reward for what they used to do. They will NOT hear therein vain or sinful discourse, Except the word PEACE, PEACE.
And He it is Who accepts repentance from His servants and forgives sins and He knows what you do; (Al_Quraan_042.025)
If any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amend (his conduct), lo! He is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al_Quraan_006.054)
(Asked Allah to forgive you and never ever think to do the sin again, otherwise it will be like a joke with Allah)
