If someone does’t remember if he did an aveira or not, must he do teshuva?December 8, 2013 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #991935HaLeiViParticipant
Bring an Asham.December 8, 2013 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #991936☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I think that’s reason enough to do teshuvah.December 8, 2013 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #991937oomisParticipant
That’s why we say b’yodim uv’lo yodim on Yom Kippur.December 8, 2013 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #991938Shopping613 🌠Participant
That means you are just trying to make yourself forget….December 8, 2013 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #991939
What does that even mean? You arent sure if what you did was assur? You need to explain.December 8, 2013 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #991940yytzParticipant
You might as well do teshuvah anyway!
As the Gemara says, do teshuvah the day before you die (that is, since no one knows when they will die, we must do teshuvah daily). And why omit mentioning something in your daily teshuvah just because there is some doubt about whether you did it?
Of course, after doing teshuvah you can add a prayer to help you keep track of and remember your actions!December 8, 2013 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #991941
i.e.- Didn’t remember if he ate Milk & Meat, Made Kiddush Fri Night, Davened Shacharis, Put on Tefillin…December 8, 2013 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #991942
Why should you assume you did something wrong unless something occurred to make you doubt if you did what you were supposed to do or did what you werent supposed to do. Meaning why would you assume you didnt make kiddush friday night if thats what you always do friday night…?December 9, 2013 12:44 am at 12:44 am #991943LevAryehMember
The Rambam in Hilchos Teshuvah 1:2 says (talking about the times of the Beis Hamikdash) ??? ????? ?? ??? ??? ???? ?? ??? ????? ????? ?????? ???? ???? ?????
Whether it was known to him or unknown to him, everything is atoned for with the goat of Azazel, provided he did Teshuvah.
This would imply that Teshuva must be done even if individual who committed the aveiros never found out about them.December 9, 2013 1:46 am at 1:46 am #991944
WIY- Let’s say something unusual happened that day which turned your whole day into a fog.December 9, 2013 6:40 am at 6:40 am #991945
Theres such a thing of an oneis if the person was ill or for whatever valid reason couldn’t do the mitzvah then you are called an oneis and you are patur from performing the mitzvah. If your mind wwasn’t there due to medication or whatever if it is a valid oneis then that’s it you are patur. Is that what the case is here?December 9, 2013 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #991946
WIY- if it is a valid oneis then that’s it you are patur
What if it is not a valid oneis?December 9, 2013 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #991947
An oneis means you really couldn’t do it a real accident. Not feeling up to it is not an oneis unless you were medically unable due to physical or mental reasons. I can’t paskin for you. Please ask a Rov.
