Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Please inform me of some du‘aas that can be made or some zikr that can be recited when a marriage is in turbulence. The husband has given the wife one talaaq, and the wife wants to reconcile and save the marriage.

Please assist us.

Brother Involved in Sin

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I cannot take my brother’s behaviour any more. He listens to music, sings, dances, watches TV, has a two-length haircut, shaves his beard, misses most of his salaah, smokes and swears. Every time he does any of the above in front of me, I make du‘aa for him. I keep making du‘aa that Allah Ta‘ala send me a pious husband as soon as possible so I can move away from all this disobedience of Allah Ta‘ala.

Alhamdulillah, Allah Ta‘ala guided me at a young age and made all of the above very hated to me, and it hurts me to know that my own brother finds happiness in it. What advice does Moulana have for me?

Laziness in Performing Salaah and Qadhaa

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Before Allah Ta‘ala blessed me to change my life, I missed a lot of salaah. Now, I have the burden of many years’ qadhaa salaah to make up. At the same time, I do sometimes miss a salaah now and again. I am struggling. I try to read one qadhaa after each daily salaah, but my time is always short and I have work to do, or need to see what my parents require, so I leave out the qadhaa.

I am so ashamed that my salaah is in such a condition. I know that there is no excuse for salaah, yet sometimes, I have no worry or concern, and I don’t understand how that happens. I have left so many sins due to Allah’s grace and mercy, and I leave out what is doubtful, and I do my best regarding Deen. Due to my salaah problem, I feel like a hypocrite – but that still doesn’t prompt me to fix my salaah and qadhaa. Please advise me.

What is the status of reading fiction novels? I am enquiring regarding general fiction novels, not novels about magic.

Birthday Parties and Family Ties

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

My family feels that I am breaking family ties by not attending birthday parties that are hosted by them and our friends.

They feel that I need to be present, even if I don’t participate in the rituals. They say that I should have lunch and leave. They even tell us that when we have a TV in our home, then what’s wrong with us attending the party?
