Day Questions

I have come to know that my brother – who is 15 years old – has started a relationship with a girl, who he meets at times and mostly they communicate via the internet. I was shocked to find this out, and I feel it is my duty to bring him back to the right path. However, I fear that if I say something he would take it negatively and do something worse. What is your advice in this situation?

You are advised to deal with your brother with calmness and wisdom taking into consideration his young age and the stage of adolescence that he is passing. You can explain to him the negative effect of the non-religious relations on his future. He may react positively to your calm advice and reasonable way. We ask the Almighty to guide you in this mission.

I gave a fake currency note to a shop which was given to me and I wasn’t aware of it. I feel embarrassed to go back to tell them the truth and give them a real one. What can I do or do I have any options?

There is no embarrassment in doing so. You should go back and explain your position so people can realize the morality of Islam that guides the believers not to cheat and Almighty Allah shall reward you if you intend to give a good picture for Islam and express its high values.
