I have been wronged by someone that is very closely related to me
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
assalam o alaikum
thank you for your wonderful services for all muslims. i always visit this site to add to my understanding of my religion. Thank you
I wanted to ask you something. i have been wronged by someone that is very closely related to me, although someone who is not close to my heart. he lied to me and dupped me into believing that he was someone else, a girl, when infact he was a boy. the reason i didnt cpme to know of this is because this all happened through email, so i could never be sure of his identity.
in good faith, i used to email him because i thought it was a girl and i truely believed it to be my freind. i told him somethings which i never would have told him had i have known whom he was. infact i would never have even spoken to him if i knew it was a male. he made me trust him adn he always lied to me. i have therefore, in this misunderstanding told him things which if he tells anyone will cause chaos in my family.
i always supplicate to allah asking him to help me and remove this fear from my heart and sort out this terrible situation in which i am. its just that the only way that isee this issue will be resolved is if one of my aunts, mistakenly says something to someone. i know all this might sound very confusing, the reason is that i dont want to write the full facts. lets put it this way, i need my aunty to say something mistakenly adn if she does, then the proeblem wil be solved. the problem is that im npt sure if it will be right to ask allah to make that happen because that means she will say something she doesnt want to. im sorry if this sounds confusing.its just that he has wronged me and i need allah to take me out of this mess.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved Sister, whatever said in the past has been said, and obviously that cannot be changed. Remain constant in your supplication to your Lord, seek His repentance and forgiveness for whatever you might have said, and seek His Protection and Refuge from any and all evil; it is expected that you will find your Lord Forgiving and Merciful.
Beloved Sister, whatever one says or does, one must be responsible enough to bear its consequences. If Allah Subhanah Wills to forgive you and protect you, Allah is our witness, no combination of people can harm you in the least; and if your Lord wishes to try you for a time, no combination in creation can remove the trial from you, except your Lord All-Mighty Himself. Thus beloved sister, there is absolutely no need to fear anyone and anything except Allah Subhanah Alone.
Remain constant in your supplication to Him to save you from any and all evil, and if possible recite the 113th Surah Al-Falaq and the 114th Surah An-Naas of the Glorious Quran as often as you can; it is expected that no harm will be able to reach you, Insha Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
