After forgiveness of Allah, is it as if the sin was never committed


Upon having a tattoo removed and sincerely asking for Allah’s forgiveness, would it be as if the tattoo wasn’t done in the first place?


Assalaamu Alaikum,

If one’s tauba is sincere, then Allah will forgive him for what he has done in the past. However, it would not be the same as if he did not do the tattoo in the first place.

And Allah knows best,
