  • Domestic Violence

    Domestic violence is a real issue effecting families across America and around the world. One of the main reason for domestic violence is anger. Khalid has been working on family development for the past 30 years helping couples and families with their family and marital issues especially domestic violence issue.

    After extensive research he has developed this step by step 16 session workshop based on the Quran and Sunnah to help with this issue. Since the publication of this book hundreds of families and individuals have benefited from this program.

    Although to completely benefit from the program the help of trained counselor is recommended but many who tried it themselves without the help of counselor say that it helped them overcome their negative emotions. The baraka that help people is in the wisdom of the true understanding of the Quran and how it applies to us and in following the exemplary life of our Prophet (PBUH)

  • After all this how can I trust him?

    Posted March 19, 2016

    Our 14 years of marriage has been like a roller coaster. We have four children 13, 12, 10 and 8 years old. My husband is a great father and good provider to the family. In the early years of our marriage my husband was extremely active sexually, sometimes forcing me into kinky acts and positions. About 2 years ago I started to notice a major change in our marital relationship as husband and wife. It started with an inappropriate text from a girl. Then it was pictures and more texts. There have been several incidents over the past year that brought me to this point. I confronted him, and he exploded in anger, saying that I had no business going through his phone. ……… Read more

    • “Brother Khalid’s counseling has been instrumental in teaching us key skills to building a successful marriage and relationships in general. In just one session of pre-marital counseling, he was able to identify issues that we continually found “popping up”, once we were married. His unmatched wisdom and expertise in applying Islamic perspective to the modern couple has helped us to positively deal with the many challenges that married couples are faced with in the U.S. We highly recommend sessions with him…they’ll make a big difference for the better!” – The Syeds
    • Life can throw a hard curve ball at anyone at any given time. Recognizing the problem and seeking help are the first step to a stronger and better you. Last year, I went through some very difficult times, including passing of my beloved mother. Life brought me to a crossroads and I was going down the road to depression, sadness, lack of energy and motivation. With the help of Allah swt, I came to the doors of Adams Center, and specifically to the office of Brother Khalid Iqbal of Adams Center seeking some counseling advice. What I found in him were a humble, kind hearted man willing to help anyone that came to his door. Through his humbleness, willingness to help, friendly and kind nature, he not only helped me get through the tough time in my life, but his priceless advice will forever remain in my heart and carry me through the ups and downs of life. I felt very comfortable discussing my issues with him, he paid close attention to what I had to say and provided great advice, including some great uplifting stories from the times of the prophet (PBUH) as well as the use of hadith and scriptures from the Quran. His positive advice and kind nature gave me the boost I needed and motivated me to contact him again whenever I needed some guidance. Towards the end of our session he handed me a Quran, and said I could keep it. To this day, whenever I open the copy of the Quran he handed me, a duaa from my heart goes out to him and his family. Truly, Allah swt brought him as a guiding light in my life Alhamdulillah! – SQ
