No Chance Without My Friend

As salamu ‘alaykum, Dear brother, I think your situation is a good example of what happens when we engage in intimate relationships with the opposite sex and how things can develop beyond our control. Naturally, after being in a ‘working’ relationship with this young woman for 2 years, you developed feelings for one another. This …

My Daugther Says She Wants to Die

Answer: As-Salamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatulahi wa Barakatuh, It can be very distressing for a mother to hear her daughter talk in such a way. Additionally, if she doesn’t feel there is any reason behind such thoughts or she is not willing to tell you, then this will leave you feeling helpless about how to help. Your …

introvert

How to Deal with My Introvert sister?

As-salamu `alaykum, Frankly, sister, I cannot help but focus on you rather than your sister. It sounds to me as if you are the one that needs self-understanding. I respect your love, dedication, and concern for your sister, but it sounds as if you insist simply that she be more like you! Your concern for her …

cut ties

I Cut Ties With My Non-Muslim Daughters

As-salamu `alaikum,  May Allah bless you for taking the time to explain your situation to us. Unfortunately this problem is quite endemic in our communities today as many people enter marriage without a proper understanding of its purpose and perhaps without prior knowledge/thinking/reflections of their own purpose and what our role as parents must be in raising …

Family

Rebellion Within the Family

As-salmu `Alaikum dear brother, I am so sorry that you are disturbed by your family coming apart. In family discord, there is often a person who takes the role of a witness, and that role is difficult that involves trying to reform and put the family together- often without success because the problem involves so …

Life

My Life Is Upside Down

As salamu `alaykumwa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh my daughter. Often, when parents migrate from a cultural climate that is completely different from the one they were raised and married in, there is a tendency to hold onto the values that have sufficed throughout life. As parents, one wants to pass on those values even in …

Daughter's Hair

What's The Best for My Daughter's Hair?

As-salamu ` alaykum.  You asked the basic question, “Which is the modest, proper hair style and grooming for a Muslim teenage girl at home?” I think what’s important is that Islamically, there is no proper hair style inside one’s own home. At home, one can wear their hair however they like. However, cultural standards and expectations are a …

Real love

Is It Real Love or Just a Crush?

As- salamu`alaykum. Brother, I think the issue here is not whether you are in love or not, but what you are ready and capable of doing at your age and given your life situation. You say you are 19 and in medical school for another 6 years. If so, are you ready to get married at …

Parents

My Parents Don't Understand Me, What Should I Do?

As-Salaamu ‘alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhum, Bless your heart for writing! I am sorry that your parents “can’t understand” you and “ always criticize your actions”! That is an unproductive relationship with one’s parents, which is sad because you lose what you need to have in a relationship with your parents—the benefit from the relationship …

Hate

I Hate My Son

As-salamu `alaykum, May you find the harmony and balance you need between yourself and your son in sha’Alah. You have provided very little information about your situation for us to be of any assistance to you, so our response may not be of much help. One can more than imagine how difficult it is to be …
