How does one remove tiredness and bordem of sin? I have performed hajj and sinned and then repented afterwards. I fear that my hajj has not been accepted even though I did all the rituals of Hajj.
To help stop sinning, a person should remember Allah is watching you all the time.
On the authority of Usamaah ibn Shareek radiallahu anhu that the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam said:
ما كرهتَ أن يراهُ الناسُ فلا تفعلهُ إذا خلوتَ
“Whatever you dislike that people see from you, then do not it when you are alone”
[Graded Hasan by al-Albani in Saheeh Jami no. 5659]
Imam al-Munaawi rahimahullah said:
أي كنت في خلوة بحيث لا يراك إلا الله تعالى والحفظة وهذا ضابط وميزان
“That is: you are alone such that none can see you except Allah and the Angels who record. This is the principle and the scale [to measure yourself or remind yourself of]”.
[Fayd ul-Qadeer Sharh Jami as-Sagheer]
As Masruq rahimahullah said:
من راقب الله فى خطرات قلبه عصمه الله فى حركات جوارحه
Whoever observes Allah regarding the thoughts in his heart, Allah will protect him in the movements of his limbs
You should know that committing sins do not nullify the hajj.
Shaikh Bin Baz rahimahullah was asked:
I performed the obligatory Hajj and I was twenty years old and I am not married yet. After I performed the obligatory Hajj, I committed some disobedience to Allah and some were major sins, as they say. Is my hajj invalidated?
“Your hajj is valid, Alhamdulliah, if you performed what Allah legislated upon you. Your hajj is valid. Disobedience does not invalidate it afterwards even if a person apostatized or disbelieved, his hajj is valid except if he died upon disbelief. If he apostates then Allah guided him and he returned to Islam, his previous actions remain. This is because Allah made death a condition in regards to apostasy [i.e. for the actions to be nullified], that a person dies upon disbelief. As for if Allah guided him and he returned to Islam, his actions will remain for him. So this disobedience is more deserving [for his actions to remain]. Disobedience does not nullify the hajj, even if you made hajj, fasted Ramadan, prayed the prayers, then after that committed zina or drank intoxicants or disobeyed your parents or consumed usury. This does not nullify your actions. Disobedience is sin and upon you is the sin. However, it does not nullify your previous actions. The actions are upon their conditions. However, it weakens your Iman. Disobedience weakens the Iman and causes the anger of Allah, the Exalted. However, it does not nullify your previous obedience. However, it decreases its reward and weakens it, except if a person makes it [the disobedience] halal. Like zina: he says it is halal! He makes zina halal and he knows it is haram and he makes it halal among the Muslims and zina is known to be haram. Or he makes intoxicants halal. He becomes an apostate from Islam [by that] and if he dies upon it, his hajj is nullified and all his acts of worship. As Allah, the Exalted said:
وَلَوْ أَشْرَكُواْ لَحَبِطَ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ
But if they had joined in worship others with Allah, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them
And He said:
.وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِالإِيمَانِ فَقَدْ حَبِطَ عَمَلُهُ وَهُوَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
And whosoever disbelieves in the Oneness of Allah and in all the other Articles of Faith [i.e. His (Allah’s), Angels, His Holy Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers
So the one who apostates from his religion, if he dies upon the apostasy, his good deeds are invalid. From that is making halal Zina or intoxicants or disobedience to the parents and he says it is halal, while he understands the Sunnah and understands the evidence, then he is a disbeliever and apostate from Islam. We seek refugee with Allah from that. If a person dies upon this, his actions are invalid. We ask Allah for well-being”.
So anytime you sin or disobey Allah, repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness.
And Allah Knows Best
