Committing zina with one's maid

Q: Please help me. I am very very sad my mind is getting freaked out. Few nights ago shaitaan overtook me and coming under the wasawis of nafs and shaitaan I became a beast. My 10 year old maid liked me (I knew that by her shyness when she looked at me). When two nights ago I came to her bed her she got up and asked who's it, I told her that its me. She was smiling. Shaitaan and nafs  again overcame me. I showed her blue prints and I don't know what bad deeds I did that night. At last we had  intercourse and lost her virginity as I erected, my mind got freaked out that what I did. I started crying. Mufti Saheb that little girl is still quite since that night. She says I have forgiven you. Mufti saheb I ruined that girl's life I am very ashamed please help me. She is just 10 year old. She still  likes me but because I asked her that don't let me touch her. So since that night she is quite. She is good looking. Mufti saheb I ruined her life. Please help me guilt is overwhelming me. I cant do any work. I can't see her like this. Mufti Saheb I am a practising Muslim, pray 5 time a day, Qur'an, beard and I asked my mother for getting me married since last 4 years. But they didn't do that. So lust overcame me and this resulted. Please tell me now what is the way for sincere repentance and what is the way that my maid forgives and forgets everything she is very very innocent. She didn't know anything. She is very innocent. Please tell me what should I do? I am very tense my business is effected very much please help me.


A: Sincerely repent to Allah Ta'ala for the serious sin you have committed and make a firm resolve that you will never ever return to this sin again in the future. You should get married immediately so that you are not overcome by your nafs and fall into the same sin again. Similarly, you should not have any contact with the girl you committed the sin with. You should not go close to her nor speak to her. It will be better if your family can send her away so that you are not tempted in the future towards such sinful actions.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.
