I went for a trip with my friends in India. We visited a historical temple over there. There was a long queue, and i was pushed inside. I reached the inner chamber and my friend told me to wave my hand over a lighted candle and touch my chest. This was their act of worship. All this happened in a split sec. and I didn’t even think. I just did it to show my respects. How should I perform tawbah?
You have wronged yourself greatly and this is an act of shirk!
You must repent to Allah and show sincere and deep remorse. You must
ask Allah for forgiveness and never do such a thing in the future.
You must cut ties with such friends and only have Muslim friends.
