How Can I Deal With Living With My Brother's Drug Problem?

Answered by Shaykh Jamir Meah

Question: Assalamu alaykum

I hear other Muslims saying that missing prayers makes one a disbeliever. Also, I said that no one knows what happens after death but followed it up by saying that, as Muslims, we believe in heaven and hell. Moreover, I wore a bracelet with an evil eye on it saying “it’s supposed to protect you”. Is this disbelief?

Answer: Assalam ‘alaykum. Thank you for your question.

Sister, you have not entered into disbelief. Leave all the doubts, trust what is being given to you as advice, and try to move on.

If this is too hard for you and the thoughts persists, then I would suggest seeking out professional counselling to support you through this. Please also try to get the support and care from close family and friends.

Try to stay busy throughout your day, and make much dhikr. Please refer to this previous answer:
