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

Condition:

I see bad dreams very often and this weighs down heavily upon me.

Answer:

Do not bother about dreams in the least because nothing happens through dreams. When you wake up on seeing a bad dream, spit lightly three times to your left, read A‘oozu billah (I seek refuge in Allah Ta‘ala), and change your sleeping position. A hadeeth states that an evil dream is from Shaitaan and no harm can come from it. (Solutions to Spiritual Maladies for the Lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, pg. 351)

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuhu

I am a Muslim sister from a town in the Eastern Cape. I am from the Xhosa tribe and embraced Islam in 2010. 

I did not know what Islam was and I did not have any interest in finding out. I was given da’wah while I was in a supermarket. I did not listen to the da’wah and laughed because I thought that Islam was only for Indians and Arabs. I was then given some kitaabs and I went home.

I would like to inform my respected readers about what I was and what I have now become.

I am a born Muslim, alhumdulillah. However, I did not grow up in a Deeni (Islamic) environment.

My parents separated when I was in grade 11. My mum moved out, and a few weeks later, my dad moved out as well. I stayed with my granny (father’s mother) who was non-Muslim. I felt as if my whole world came crashing down. I had to make my own decisions in life. I used to see my mum very seldom after school and things weren’t the same. 

I changed a lot. I became aggressive, always pushing away people that cared about me. I lived with my granny for a few months and then moved in with my aunt who is also from my father’s side (my dad was a revert so his entire family was non-Muslim). At the time, I thought that living with my aunt was the best decision, because every teenager wants their freedom to do what they want without having anyone to answer to, right?

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

Alhamdulillah, I am in hijaab and punctual with salaah. I try to please Allah Ta‘ala and follow the sunnah. However, since I have had my daughter, I find bringing her up to be very trying and so I sometimes lose my temper. She is now two years old and very demanding, always wanting my attention and disrupting me.

Please guide me and advise me as to what I should do.

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

I was born into a mixed-parentage family. My father was a Buddhist Chinese and my mother is a Hindu. They both practiced different faiths. I grew up worshipping idols and visiting temples, so I never felt odd or weird about the rituals. Because I was born in a Muslim country, Islam was not foreign to me.

I was 17 when I started asking questions about my religion. Prayers and rituals did not make sense anymore. I then started seeking the religion that made the most sense. An invitation came for me to visit a church and attend a sermon. I did attend, but still felt that it wasn’t for me.
