Q: My mother is a widower since 18 years. She raised me her daughter and my brother on her own. I am married for seven years now Alhamdulillah. My brother is married for four years. He is involved in drug addiction. He has no child yet. My mum has money and good house but no happiness at all. Life is all scattered. She wants to ask what could be the reason for such situation?
A: Ask her to commence the following daily program at home:
(1) Ta`leem of Fazaa’il-e-A`maal, Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat and Bahishti Zewar.
(2) Recitation of a portion of the Qur’aan Shareef and some zikr.
(3) Du`aa with the family at the end of each session.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
