Question ID: 25625

Assalamualaykum Respected Mufti.

May Allah Almighty reward to always for the outstanding service that you are providing to the Umma at large.

My question is one that is disturbing and something that I have kept secret for almost 20 years. It is so hard for me to even talk about but I must have the answer.

Mufti, I was sexually abused in childhood for many years by a border my parents kept at home. I do not blame my parents because we were very poor and needed money. I blame myself for not telling my parents. Years have passed and this border is now deceased, having passed away on an auspicious day according to Islamic calendar. It hurts me whenever people say that because of this fact he will get entry to Jannah. Is this true?

Also, will I be punished for not saying anything to anyone? I was only 9 years old.

Passing away on a auspicious say does not mean automatic entry into Jannat. Perhaps he made a 'sincere Taubah'. Remember Allaah is totally JUST.
