sexual abused as child

Question ID: 31436

Salaam Mufti. Please can you tell me if I will be punished for not informing my family of sexual abuse that I had endured when I was a child.
I was abused sexually by an uncle and a family friend. I was 9 years old at the time and this lasted until I was almost 11.
I am ashamed, I constantly feel used and dirty. Please help me. Is Allah going to punish me for keeping quiet about it?

You should have spoken up. You should expose these culprits. You are not a sinner by not exposing them.
May Allaah aid you to recover fully.
