To the anon who sent this ages ago,
I am a horrible person and I am terribly sorry! I forgot to reply to this and I feel so ashamed, I hope you can forgive me for my forgetfulness and my rudeness. I pray Allah helped you with this predicament and you found an answer.
If not, my advice (I am not a scholar of any sort, and the advice I give is from my knowledge of Islam. I may be wrong, and if I am please forgive me and correct me) to you is to help this person to the extent that you feel is right. We shouldn’t talk to our non-mahrams, in Islam it isn’t allowed. However, especially in our society, with work and school, talking with them can not be avoided.
I would say help your friend, encourage them to stop, but know your limits and your bounds. If it feels wrong, don’t do it. Always remember Allah is always watching.
InshaAllah, I pray your friend is given the strength to quit.
Again, I am immensely sorry for the late reply. Please forgive me. May Allah bless you <3
I am not a scholar, nor have I studied proficiently in Islam. This is a question you might want to ask your local Imam or Mufti. Perhaps contact PartyTilFajr? I pray you find your answer, and that Allah does what is best for you InshaAllah <3
Not once did Allah say, “worry about it,” “stress over it”. But He clearly said, “Trust me.”
This always brings me relief :)
Whoever tries to be patient, Allah will make him patient. And nobody can be given a better and greater gift than patience.[Bukhari] (via verypuresoul)
The best of my ummah are those who when treated foolishly are tolerant, and when attacked they forgive, and when they are hurt are patient.Prophet Muhammad (sawa), Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 2, p. 123 (via arabarabarab)
Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If any one of you sees a dream that he likes, this is from Allaah, so let him praise Allaah for it and talk about it to others. If he sees other than that, a dream that he dislikes, this is from the Shaytaan, so let him seek refuge with Allaah from its evil and not mention it to anyone, for it will not harm him.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6584, and Muslim, 5862)
Allahumma inni asaluka al-jannah wa ‘audhubika min an-naar
Ô Allah, I ask For Paradise, and Protection from the fire
Strive, the sweetness of life is in striving.Imam Ash-Shafi’ī رحمه الله (via alfirdaws)
Is there any reward for good other than good?
– Surah Ar-Rahman (55:60)
The Prophet (saw) said: “When one of you makes dua, let him begin by praising his Lord, then send blessings on the Prophet (saw) then pray for whatever he wants”
