I've always been considered the most "obedient" from my sisters...the person my parents could count on...the religious one in the family. But recently I fell into some sins. I won't make excuses for what I did....I have repented but now my major problem is my parents. I feel like a total hypocrite in front of them. I broke their trust...and I'm suffering from extreme guilt. I'm so ashamed....Should I confide in them and admit what I did? They might hate me if I do, though :(
First of all, alhamdullilah that you have repented from whatever it is that you did.
Second of all, I know right now you might be thinking that it was just luck that you weren't caught in the act...and that you don't deserve your parents and all of that.
But actually, hunny, it was not a 'mistake' or 'good luck' that your parents didn't catch you in the act. That was actually planned.
Think about it.
Allah could have willed that you would be "found out". But He didn't do that.
He chose to conceal it for you.
So, why would you reveal what He has hidden from others?
It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “All of my ummah may be forgiven except those who commit sin openly. It is a kind of committing sin openly if a man does something at night, then morning comes and Allaah has concealed his sin, but he says, ‘O So and so, I did such and such last night,’ when his Lord has concealed him (his action) all night but in the morning he reveals that which Allaah had concealed for him.”
May Allah make things easier for you
