‘Feelings’ for a Friend

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have a very close friend who I know for a few years. The problem is that I think I’m getting close to her in a way not desired in Islam. I also know that she thinks of me as more than just a friend. Will it be better for me to maintain a distance from her, or will I be punished in the Hereafter for not talking to her? 

Jazakallah

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)

Condition:

I am very fearful of going astray. I think about my destiny very often and I do not know what is written for me. I constantly make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala for my destiny by saying, “O Allah! Make my destiny good. Save me from deviation.”

I have an extreme desire to perform hajj and ‘umrah, and to visit the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Allah Ta‘ala repeatedly calls many fortunate people to His House. I become envious of these people. I make this du‘aa, “O Allah! You call everyone again and again, call me [to Your House] as well.”

What to Wear???

How often have we not witnessed someone before their wardrobe, viewing the vast variety of clothing before them, wondering, “What should I wear today? What colour and style should I pick? What should I pair it with?” However, the question arises that while most people primarily choose clothing based on brand, style and fashion, what should a Muslim make their basis of preference when selecting clothing to wear?

In the Quraan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala mentions, “O children of Aadam (‘alaihis salaam)! We have bestowed you with clothing to conceal your nudity, as well as to be an adornment (for you).” (Surah Aa’raaf v. 26)

The commentators mention that in this verse, by mentioning the aspect of concealing the body before the aspect of adorning the body, the Quraan Majeed impresses upon us that the primary purpose of clothing (i.e. to cover one’s satr) is more important than the secondary benefits of clothing (i.e. adornment). (Ma‘aariful Quraan vol. 3, pg. 534)
