I advised my brother to fast, as this is Ramadhan. Both of us are following the tariqah.
My advice got him so angry and he started to call me ‘Wahabi’, and asked me to make sajdah 3 times and said, “as if all this while Allah accepts all my prayers”.
I told him to istighfar, he started to punch me in the head non-stop, hit my back with an iron, punched me in the face, stepped on my head and kicked me. It was tragic.
None of the family members can stop him, he would go totally berserk and start becoming abusive.
If my brother has sickness, please pray that he will recover from all this illness. Please ask Allah to open his heart, he really needs help!
Please pray for me and my family too.
wa `alaykum salam,
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham will pray for you and your brother and family. The way to advise is through acts, not words. Next time invite him to iftar, give him sweets – be nice to him. Recite for him Ya Latif 100 times daily.
