Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)

Condition:

After taking bay‘ah (pledging allegiance) to Hazrat and attending the Friday majlis, I started observing the shar‘ee purdah. I am making much effort in abstaining from sins.

Answer:

All praise is due to Allah Ta‘ala. I am most pleased.

Condition:

Hazrat, I have one matter which I would like to ask about. Previously I used to attend weddings without observing any purdah. However, through your blessings, I now completely abstain from attending weddings because of the evils which are prevalent there.

Through the journey of life, one’s path will contain pot holes, bumps, gravel patches and roadblocks, just as it will contain captivating scenery, rest stops and straight, clear sections, free of danger. In many instances, the pot hole or bump will be an entirely new one, never experienced before. On encountering this obstacle, one will wonder, “How do I navigate it successfully?” The simple answer is that one should refer to someone who has knowledge of the path and understands what will be pleasing to Allah Ta‘ala. Through the guidance of such a person, one will be able to overcome the obstacle without suffering a loss.

In life, obstacles come in different forms and guises. Sometimes, we are faced with marital problems, either with our husband himself or our in-laws. At other times, we may be faced with a predicament involving our children, while there may be times when we have a personal problem in our life such as the addiction to a certain destructive sin.

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

Where can I find an environment of Deen to live in? My imaan is so weak that I really need a Deeni environment to survive. Do you know of a good place that a Muslim can migrate to?

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I terminated studying at madrasah last year. Alhumdulillah, I’m currently teaching during the afternoons.

My mother has advised me to stay at home during the mornings so that I can attend to the housework and learn to run a home. However, my Aapa wants me to teach during a portion of the morning. Similarly, another madrasah enquired regarding my availability to teach in the mornings. 

I had made the choice that I will help my mother by staying at home in the morning, but now I feel like I am turning down so many opportunities to come out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala to teach. I humbly request you to advise regarding which is more virtuous.

Depressed Due to a Haraam Relationship

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I’m a twenty-five year old Muslim girl. Eight years ago, I fell in love with a decent Muslim boy. I know that this was totally haraam, but I guess I was young (which I know is not an excuse).

We were together for six years, and two years ago, he hurt me by lying to me. I was heartbroken and immediately broke up with him. Since then, we do speak now and then, but it did not bother me or hurt me so much all along.

Even after all these years, I do kind of love him, but have left it all in Allah’s hands, as He knows what is in our taqdeer. Recently, I’ve been feeling so depressed that at times, I feel like breaking down when I hear from him.

Please suggest some du‘aa to me that I can read as I feel so miserable.
