It is my greatest desire to follow the Shariah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Nowadays I am worried due to several reasons. Among others, one reason is that it is my greatest desire to follow the Shariah, including keeping a fist length beard and attending congregational prayers.However, as you know that especially in regards to the beard, most people are mocked and opposed by family, friends etc. Also I want that my family members follow Shariah more completely, though Alhamdulillah they are quite practicing Muslims already but dont have enough knowledge of fiqh. Mufti sahib, I want you to advise me some zikr, wazeefa etc, but which is not very lengthy  so Allah relieves me of worries and tension and gives me tawfiq in adhering to Shariah and acheiving my wordly goals also.


A: Ensure that you are punctual with your five daily salaah with jamaat in the masjid and you lead your entire life according to the Mubaarak Sunnah of Hadhrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Guard your tongue as well as your eyes from committing sins at all times and ensure you remain in pious company. Make it a habit of reciting some portion of the Quraan (approximately 1 para) daily. Try to read a portion of Fadhaaile A’amaal, Fadhaaile Sadaaqaat and Behishti Zewar with your family daily. Attend the programs of some pious ‘Ulama who are committed to the Sunnah and remain committed to their teachings. 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
