Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Is it advisable for young girls (grade 12) to go on an overnight excursion? The place is less than 78km so the parents and certain teachers feel it is no problem. Certain male parents want to accompany them which will be a means of them seeing the other girls.

Communal Living


Last Updated on Tuesday, 11 August 2015 15:32


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I need some advice about communal living. From an Islamic point of view, is it permissible to reside in the same home as ones father in law?

I am living with my husband and children in the same home as my in laws. I don’t have a relationship with my father in law. He has anger management issues and is always in a bad mood. I am uncomfortable to live in the same home as someone who refuses to talk, be pleasant or greet back. Also, is he is my ghair mahram? So from that view point is it allowed? Are there any hadith’s about this situation?

I Can’t Stop Backbiting


Last Updated on Monday, 03 August 2015 16:13

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


I find myself trapped in the destructive illness of backbiting. I make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala every morning saying: “O Allah! I must not commit any sin today, I must not backbite.” Yet I commit this sin by that same evening. I am very troubled. I read many ahaadeeth and many of your books on the topic of backbiting. Especially your book, “The illnesses of the soul and their treatment”. However this has had no effect on me. I manage to fear this sin for 2-3 days but then start committing it again. I am now backbiting more than ever since my sister-in-law has come into the house. I am very troubled and do not know how to save myself from this sin.
