Respected Mufti Saheb

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

I am constantly harassed by some enemies who are bent on inflicting difficulties upon me. As a result I am greatly disturbed. My life has become a misery and I am extremely despondent. My family is also disturbed and troubled by the conditions. I cannot fathom what to do. I am being harassed absolutely without reason. Kindly advise me as to what I should do.

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

I have received your letter and was greatly saddened by your plight. Remain engaged in your own work. Do bother about what plots and schemes are being hatched against you. Treat every person with respect and with good character. As a result those who are bent on harming you will themselves refrain from their evil ways. Allah Ta’ala declares: “The consequence of evil plots will fall on the perpetrators.” If on the one hand your enemies are waiting for the opportune moment to harm you, on the other hand Allah Ta’ala is there to protect you. Sheikh Sa’di (R.A.) says: “Who is it that can dare to oppress if You (Allah Ta’ala) grant assistance, who can dare to arrest if You release.” May Allah Ta’ala assist you in your predicament and grant you peace.
