  • The Causes of Anger by Imam Ghazali



    From Imam Ghazali’s book “Ihyaa Uloom ad Deen”

    (The revival of religious teachings)

    Know, O dear readers, that the medecine of a disease is to remove the root cause of that disease. Isa (Jesus Christ) -peace be upon him- was once
    asked: “What thing is difficult?” He said: “God’s wrath.” Prophet Yahya(John the Baptist) -peace be upon him- then asked: “What thing takes near
    the wrath of God?” He said:”Anger”. Yahya – peace be upon him- asked him: “What thing grows and increases anger?” Isa -peace be upon him-
    said: “Pride, prestige, hope for honour and haughtiness”

    The causes which cause anger to grow are self-conceit, self-praise, jests and ridicule, argument, treachery, too much greed for too much wealth and
    name and fame. If these evils are united in a person, his conduct becomes bad and he cannot escape anger.

    So these things should be removed by their opposites. Self-praise is to be removed by modesty. Pride is to be removed by one’s own origin and birth,
    greed is to be removed by remaining satisfied with necessary things, and miserliness by charity.

  • Parents Involvement in the Life of Married Couple

    By: Khalid Iqbal, Founder of Rahmaa Institute

    In a recent case of dispute between the young wife and her mother-in-law, I was asked the question, “who should back off?”. There is not a straight answer to this question. Both sides felt that they were in the right. The young wife felt that her mother-in-law is meddling in their marriage. She is criticizing her for everything and anything that she does including; how she spends her time, what she wears and when she goes out with her husband. The mother-in-law is also constantly complaining that she does not help with the household chores. 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
