A lot of times we might forget that when Allah puts us through pain and suffering, it isn’t to punish us, but rather it is a reminder to bring us back to Him during our times of need.

Asalamuwalaikum,

Breaking an engagement in which you’re emotionally invested can be hard especially when it can be abusive. Remember that you did what you did for the sake of your well being and mental health as well as for your Creator. 

Remember that this is a test that Allah SWT is putting you through and the only person who can decide whether you’ll be able to get through is you. Make sure that important people in your life (i.e. your parents, siblings, etc.) know why you broke off the engagement. Forget him and know that when Allah SWT takes something away from you, whether it’s good or bad, He will only bring you something better. 

Pray to Allah SWT for his mercy and don’t get mixed up in gossip unless it is to defend yourself. Remember that when you need someone that you have your friends and family as well as us here in the RLMG staff to help, guide, and support you through your hardships. 

May Allah SWT grant you his mercy and insha’Allah we’ll remember you in our duas this Ramadan.

"Verily, with every difficulty, there is relief." (Quran 94:6)

Asalamuwalaikum,

We want to first off say thank you for messaging us with a realization that this was probably difficult for you to come to us about. Our advice would be to eliminate factors of pain or distress in your life or at least distance yourself from it. Keep all blades and sharp objects away from you at all times. Then seek a physician as well as a therapist. As someone who’s had experience with therapists while also having a number of friends who have gone to therapists and psychologists as well as psychiatrists I can assure you that the person taking care of you is a trained professional. If you feel uncomfortable with this first speak to your parents about your problem. They’ll be more than understanding when you explain to them how essential this is for you and your life. 

To treat cuts clean them using rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide and then applying Neosporin and gauze. For later scarring use Bio-oil, cocoa butter, or Vitamin E oil or refer to a dermatologist. 

We hope that insha’Allah you take heed of our advice. Insha’Allah you learn of a healthier way to cope with your pain and inshaAllah you’ll be in our duas this Ramadan. May Allah SWT bless you with mercy and ease.

How Islam made me a feminist by Zena Agha.

Whilst Islam is not solely the reason I am feminist, it is a very important aspect of my interpretation and practice of feminism.

The takeaway from the story of Ibrahim (Abraham) and his son, has nothing to do with sacrificing a son, the question is: if God told you to do something, would you do it?

God doesn’t ask us to kill anyone, we can’t harm anyone, because while we try and obsess over the idea of the sacrifice, we miss the point, again, will you do what God says?

God says to be kind when you don’t want to be kind, to be patient when you don’t want to be patient, to be forgiving to those you don’t want to forgive, to help those no one wants to help, to stand up for justice for those who are being oppressed, to be kind to your mother when you’re frustrated, to help your sister when you are lazy, to give to charity instead of buying yourself something useless.

These are God’s commands, and yet here we are, wasting our time, missing the entire point of the story, and by extension, Islam.
