    My Husband is Addicted to Heroin

    Answered by Ustadha Umm Salah
    www.sunnipath.com


    *Question:*



    I am a Scandinavian woman who converted to Islam two years ago. My
    husband is from a Muslim country. Before we met, he was addicted to
    heroin. Although he was clean when I first married him, he soon
    regressed and started using drugs again. He has been to four rehabs in
    our two and a half years together. He has also sought medical and
    psychological help to no avail. He has also hit me. We have a baby
    together, but most of our money goes to buy drugs. My husband now lives
    on the street. I say a lot of nasty things to him when I see him
    because
    I am so disappointed. I don't know what to do about him. Is there any
    prayer I can say for him? I don't want his son to see him this way.
    What
    is your advice for me? I am afraid separation will be the only
    solution.




    *Answer:*



    *In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful*

    Praise be to Allah. May the peace and blessings of Allah shower upon
    our
    Beloved Messenger, his family, companions, and those who follow them.



    Dear Sister,



    May Allah Most High give you patience and strength.



    Normally, I would advise you to send your husband to a rehab facility.
    But since he's already been four times and nothing seems to have
    helped,
    you may have to face the possibility that your husband's condition is
    out of your hands. Often, a person may be in rehab time and time again
    before they finally kick the habit. It sounds like you have really
    tried
    to help your husband. But, ultimately, it is your husband who will have
    to decide that he wants to change.



    If you feel you are up to it, then make one last effort to get him off
    the street and into rehab. Don't hide this from his family. If he has
    any family around, they are obligated to help you deal with him. Let
    his
    family step in and play a role.



    I also advise you to go to a reliable scholar and discuss your
    situation. Your husband is not fit to be a husband at this point. You
    have a baby to think about. Right now, your husband is not there for
    the
    baby, but you are. You don't need to be in a situation where your money
    is going to buy drugs. You do need to be in a situation where you have
    peace of mind. Let your husband's family get him off the streets. You
    can still want the best for your husband, but you also need to think
    about your own situation. Divorce, though painful, is something you may
    need to consider for the wellbeing of you and your baby.



    Whatever you decide to do, turn to Allah in your decision. There's a
    link on Sunni Path which will tell you about Salat al-Istikhara or the
    Prayer for Guidance at:
    http://www.sunnipath.com/resources/Q...a00002836.aspx.



    Also, there's a prayer called Salat al-Haja, which you can make when
    asking Allah to grant a need or desire. Here are the details:



    According to /Mishkat/, whoever has a need that can be fulfilled by
    Allah or by a human being should make a good ablution, then pray two
    rak'as. After finishing, he should glorify Allah, send blessings on the
    Prophet, peace be upon him, and then say:



    There is no deity save God, the Clement, the Bountiful. Glory be to
    God,
    Lord of the Magnificent Throne! Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds! I
    beg of Thee the causes of (obtaining) Thy mercy, and the purposes of
    (securing) Thy pardon; spoil from every righteousness, and safety from
    every sin. Leave no sin of mine unforgiven; no anxiety unrelieved; and
    no need of mine, wherewith Thou art pleased, unfulfilled. O Thou the
    Most Merciful of those who show mercy! (Narrated by 'Abdullah ibn Abi
    'Awfa in Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.) [A.H. Farid, Prayers of Muhammad]



    May Allah make things easy for you.

    And Allah alone gives success.

          alhundullillah,bro faqir good post, sad story but very informative advice,i nevr new the salat haja prayer existed!

          but i dont understand how that is diffrent from the salat istikhara, cos in both your asking for something right?
          The Prophet SAW said, "(There are2words which R dear 2 the most gracious (Allah SWT)&very easy4the tongue2say but very heavy in the balance.They are:Subhan Allahi Wa Bihamdihi - Subhan Allahil-Azim
