Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1053 I started researching deeper into the Islam and Alhamdulillah I am now wearing the Hijab and Abaya, to the dislike of most of my family.

Even though I never miss a prayer, I’m active in the mosque and swapped fictional books and music for Islamic books, I am still finding it hard to maintain constant happiness and find myself crying constantly and get very depressed and wish Allah to grant me death early (Astaghfirullah) and other times I'm very at peace and do thanks.
Mashallah it is very pleasing to hear that you are making all effort in order to turning your life towards following Islamic teachings. This indeed is a big blessing for you, in this world and in the Hereafter.

It is important to understand that It is Fard (obligation by Islamic law) for woman to cover up (i.e. Hijab). What people say is not superior, to what Allah Azawajal has ordered. Seek refuge in Allah Taalah indeed He (S.W.T) will make it easy for you.

If life was not about facing hardship, then the Prophets and the pious would have lived the most comfortable of lives. Allah (S.W.T) has revealed in the Qur’an that He will test Muslims in various ways until the end of their lives. But there is one important point on this subject that believers need to know: If someone encounters a difficulty, or something that is hard to deal with, that means that Allah (S.W.T) has also given them the strength to overcome the matter and succeed in the test.

Knowing from the outset that this is a law of Allah (S.W.T) and believing in that law is one of the most important pieces of information that can permit a believer to overcome that test. All we need to do is Sabr (patience) and do Shukr (be grateful to Allah (S.W.T)) for all that we face in life. Allah (S.W.T) is all Knowing and Wise.

Stay steadfast in following the commands of Allah (S.W.T), recite the Holy Quran with regularity, remain in Wudu and make a habit in sending Salutation (Darood Shareef) to Nabi e Rahmat (S.A.W) and inshallah you will be rewarded and overcome all hurdles.

We also hope that inshallah one day your family understands the importance of following the true teachings of Islam and instead of showing dislike, they encourage you and follow the path that leads to Paradise themselves too.
