    Can I be forgiven for shirk (OP)


    When I was 14 I commited shirk unknowingly and when I found out I was severely depressed. I did my research to find out if allah forgives shirk and I heard that allah does forgive shirk if you repent sincerely before death and to never do it again. I was so happy that I started to practice my faith again
    But one day I had commited shirk by accident and I kept on commiting shirk knowingly and by accident and I used to ask allah for forgiveness from shirk and I promised allah that I would not do it again but I kept on commiting shirk (going on for many months). I used to avoid anything that is about islam and I later on realised how much I have messed up. I then sincerely repented and I resolved to never commit shirk. It has now been 2 years and I haven't commited shirk and I am practicing my deen. I would like to know if allah will forgive me for commiting shirk despite how many times I had commited shirk.

    Well, I don't know whether I should cry or be thankful for mercy, but a song springs to mind. https://youtu.be/ts-VG-JmT6g

    Agreed here in such circumstances the person who is wronged will be rewarded with the virtues of the wrong doer and if he does not have virtues the Sins of the victim will be placed on the wrong doer. In any case it means the sins towards fellow humans are not forgiven untill the victim wholeheartedly forgives the oppressor.

    Agreed here in such circumstances the person who is wronged will be awarded with the virtues of the wrong doer (to the extent of his oppression or injustice ) and if he does not have virtues the Sins of the victim will be placed on the wrong doer. In any case it means the sins towards fellow humans are not forgiven untill the victim wholeheartedly forgives the oppressor. This is seen from our Hadiths

    I think the main zest of it is, too the victim's, there is no mercy for the merciless.

    Yes but provided its done in true sense not ONLY with the EXTERNAL SUNNAH but the Internal ones like Prophet forgiving even his stone pelters on Prophet at Taif and also relieving their families with his own money from slave hood. The Orphaned Prophet Forgiving the Killers of his MOST loved ones, his beloved uncle Hamza , and by Washi The Black slave and disfiguring him by Hinda . Subhanallah The Noblility and Kindness of the Last prophet.
