Faqihul Ummah: Problems and Difficulties

PrintE-mail

SUMMARY OF LETTER:
Bismihi Ta’ala
Respected Mufti Saheb
As Salaamu Alaikum

I am in severe problems and difficulties. I cannot even think why these difficulties have come upon me. What wrong have I done that I have been taken to task in this manner? Kindly make dua for me.
SUMMARY OF REPLY:
Bismihi Ta’ala
Respected Brother
As Salaamu Alaikum

I wholeheartedly make dua for you that Allah Ta’ala must remove your difficulties. May you be exonerated and freed from your difficulties in a most respectable manner.

          Furthermore, I wish to draw your attention to another aspect. Never consider yourself as blameless and sinless. Daily we commit sins and still think that we have been taken to task despite being blameless. However the reality is that there is a mountain of blame upon us. This can be understood by the following example: A light switch is switched on in one place and at a distance the bulb lights up. However, the connection between the two by means of the wiring is often not seen (but the link is certainly there). Likewise our sins have “switched on” the problems (though we cannot see it - translator). May Allah Ta’ala forgive our sins. May He keep us with respect and safety and save us from sins.
