Cure for laziness

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am so lazy that I don’t feel like going to work or even to go for an interview. I only eat, sleep and pray salah at least once a day and recitation of the holy Qur’an after salah. My parents are worried that if I’m lazy then I won’t do anything in life. Please make Dua for me and include my parents in your dua too. I recite often the verse from Surah Ibrahim ayat no 40 & 41. What can I do for my laziness?


A: Ask your parents not to feed you until you don’t get up, perform your five namaaz and do some work. They must only feed you when you do these things.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
