Apostasy

13 Sep 2021 Ref-No#: 3498

When I was 9 years old (not yet an adult) in anger I uttered blasphemous words for Allah and His Prophet SAW without knowing how heinous it is or that it would take me out of the fold of Islam therefore I continued to practice Islam normally, when I reached puberty i thought I wouldn’t be held accountable for what I said since I was a child, and a child is not accountable for his actions, but now at the age of sixteen I realized that I committed the greatest of sin, now I have repented and renewed my faith, will my repentance be accepted I am very depressed what should I do?

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahu wa barakatuhu,

Yes, your repentance is accepted, and you are a Muslim.

Do not stress about this.
