Asalaam Alaykum Shaykh,
I hope you and your family are well inshaa allah.
Please assist if possible.
I have one brother who is older then me. He is on the wrong path; he does a lot of bad things and is depressed. He seems to think the bad way i.e. that taking drugs is helping him with his pain. He is separated from his wife and has a son which he is not allowed to see. This has made him more depressed. His behaviour is affecting the whole family as we love him a lot and cannot seem to find a way to help him, especially my mother. It is very difficult seeing someone you love in a self-destruct mode. I feel so helpless. His behaviour might be affected by black magic. I would be truly grateful if you could please pray for him and provide guidance.
wa `alaykum salam,
In sha Allah Mawlana Shaykh Hisham will pray for you.
Trust in Allah and His help and do not feel helpless. Recite every day Ya Lateef x1000 to the intention of your brother’s betterment and advise him in the best way whenever you can.
