Q: I have this housemates that talks about people. She had talked about me and I confirmed it that she did. Since then I dread her completely and never want anything to come between us but we do exchange greetings and if she needs assistance I render it if I can but nothing more. This keeps disturbing me because each day my dislike for her increases. What should I do?
A: I suggest that you disregard this and start off ta`leem in the house. Insha-Allah this will allay all your fears and doubts. Ensure that you perform your namaaz on time.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
