Addiction

Q:

Salam alaikum How to handle strong addictive craving when it comes give me some basic tools to deal with it?

A:

Wa alaykum as-salam wa-rahmatullah wa-barakatuh,

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving,

Peace and blessings be upon His noble Prophet Muhammad.

Duaa (prayer/supplication) is the strongest weapon a Muslim has in the face of all life trials and challenges. Allah says in the Quran what means, “Yet the Lord of [all of] you has said: Call upon Me [in prayer]. I shall answer you.” Quran 40:60)

Addiction is one of the hardest trials in which one becomes in dire need for Allah’s help and assistance. So, you should turn with a penitent heart to Allah. Call upon Him day and night; particularly in during the daily Prayers. Choose the best times to answer duaa such as the time between Adhan and iqamah and shortly before dawn. Talk to your Merciful Lord and ask Him to help you overcome this addiction and grant you patience and resolve. Keep knocking the door and be sure, it will open.

Almighty Allah knows best.
