Am from India. I am writing this letter to you thinking that I will get an answer which will increase my iman and get forgiveness from Allah and prevent further fornication. Am from the medical field. I work as a junior doctor. Am aged 27 and unmarried. My problem is I have committed many zina. I had enough iman before joining college. But after joining college my iman started to decrease. I started to touch girls…slowly as days went I started to date my classmates, my juniors. I had done fornication with them. Each time I do that sin, I get a heavy feeling that I have done a great sin and I will think I will never repeat that sin again in my rest of life. With my less amount of iman, I repent to Allah promising that I will never do zina again and I seek forgiveness. But after a few days or week I forget everything what I promised, and commit fornication again. I do get a guilty feeling in the middle of fornication, but I was not able to walk away from that .Before a month, I committed zina with a lady here in hospital. After that I thought I will stop zina permanently. For getting more iman I recited sura Yosuf and read its translation. I was alright for a month. But yesterday and today I again committed zina with another lady. Am so confused now. Will Allah forgive me..? will Allah hear my prayers..? I have heard Allah will forgive all the sins. But my condition is that, even knowing it is a sin, I have done it again and again. I feel so ashamed to ask forgiveness to Allah. Am so confused now…pls give me advice with regard to my sins. Pls help me.
First of all bro..you don't have to give your whole life story plus details of your sin. Just the bare minimum to get advice for your situation is quite enough..don't expose yourself. Allah will forgive you if you sincerely repent. Which means to ask for his forgiveness sincerely and make sure you never do the sin again and avoid all things that lead to it. you must ask Allah for true forgiveness and do not despair of his mercy;
"Say: 'O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.'" (Az-Zumar: 53)
Sincere repentance, however, is not simply saying, “Lord, forgive me”, “I ask forgiveness of Allah.” Sincere repentance involves experiencing within oneself a profound sense of guilt for having disobeyed Allah and for the terrible sin one has committed. Secondly, one should totally refrain from approaching that sin as well as from such associations and circumstances that may led him/her to it; thirdly, one must be resolved never to repeat the same in the future, and finally, one must also do whatever he/she can to wipe out the past sins by engaging in good works as much as possible.
A good du`a to recite each night or morning is;
"Allahumma aghnini bi halalika
(O Allah, grant me sufficiency in what You have made halal for me so that I do not need to turn to what You have made haram; and make me self-sufficient with Your obedience so that I am not compelled to disobey You; and make me self-sufficient with Your favor so that I don’t need to turn to favor of others).

Symptom: Feeling weak? Prescription: Lower gaze, Do your prayers
The Noble Qur'an 24:30
Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.
Hadith - Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, Hadith No. 409
Narrated Ibn Mas'uud r.a.: A man kissed a woman and then came to Allah's Messenger saaws and told him of that, so this Divine Inspiration was revealed to the Prophet saaws:- "And offer prayers perfectly at the two ends of the day, and in some hours of the night; [i.e. (five) compulsory prayers]. (Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds (small sins). That is a reminder for the mindful." (Qur'an 11:114) The man said, "Is this instruction for me only?" The Prophet saaws said, "It is for all those of my followers who encounter a similar situation."

Shahi Bukhari: Volumn 007, Book 062, Hadith Number 004.
Narated By 'Abdullah : We were with the Prophet while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Allah's Apostle said, "O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power."
