A toxic practice
Muslims are able to live in any time and place, and partake in the cultural practices of all people insofar as they do not involve a transgression of Allah’s rights or those rights He has given others. Harming Allah’s creatures is a particularly grave matter, which will not be forgiven on the Day of Resurrection, and there is no barrier between the oppressed and his or her Lord.
No matter how “good” a Muslim we are, if we die having taken another slave’s rights without due process—even if we believe they “deserved it”—our good deeds will not wipe away the sins against someone else. We will be taken to account on the most terrifying day that will turn a young man’s hair white and make a pregnant woman miscarry out of dread.
Life does not always go according to our plans. Islam was not revealed for a utopia but for real life—where sometimes relationships break down. We want to empower our community to be able to deal with disputes and divorces in a way which pleases Allah and protects them, their children, their families and society at large from the knock-on effects of injustice, in this life and the next.
If you or someone you know is involved in a dispute involving their children then visit our resources page to find recognised bodies that are able to offer psychological, spiritual and mediation assistance which has your long term interests at heart, unlike those who earn a living off encouraging and spreading this toxic, anti-Islamic, soul-destroying practice that is tearing society apart.
