Pearl of Wisdom

narrated in Maalib al-Sa'ul, 'A fire set ablaze in the house wherein he was in the state of prostration in his prayers. They [the people of the household] cried, ?O son of the Prophet, O son of the Prophet! Fire! Fire!' But he did not raise his head from prostration until the fire had been extinguished.' He was asked, 'What is it that diverted your attention away from it [the fire]?' He replied, 'The Fire of the Hereafter.'

Subject: interracial relationship enquiry
Question: Salaams,

I wanted help from you, someone is going out with a hindu, and she is in a deep relationship in such a way that she wants to change her cast. I would like you to guide me on how to bring her back on track.

She has totally changed, not respecting the family people, parents n does wat she likes.

Is it the boys influence?

Please help me with any amals or surahs I should recite in order to save her from doing this.

Answer: Salam alaykum,

InshaAllah this find you in good health.

To reaffirm the religion of Islam to your friend, its crucial you understand the benefits or fazilat of reciting Surahs or Duas.

In order to help bring your friend back on tract, I recommend these:
1. Practice what you preach
2. Use references from the Quran, Hadiths - [a good source is:]
3. Exercise humbleness and smile - the more approachable you are means the attractive your way of life is.
4. Spend your time to be with them.
5. Describe how Islam is relevant to today, and isn't an old fashioned way of life.
6. Ask them the 4 fundamental questions
i. Where am i going and what would make me really happy deep inside?
ii. What do i believe?
iii. Who should i be grateful to?
iv. did i get to where i am today without the help of anyone?

InshaAllah you can be the beacon of light for your friend.
