Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1096 I know someone who drug deals, they have a wife and kid, what’s the best thing to do from and Islamic point of view?
Dealing or using drugs such as Marijuana, Cocaine or Heroin etc are all Haram in Islam. When a person deals or consumes any such drugs then they have committed grave sin.

In terms of trying to help, apart from trying to guide him back onto the right path, there is not much else you can do. The decision is ultimately his. What you could do is to educate him about Islam and the role of the husband and father within this beautiful religion.

You may want to also highlight the consequences of his actions, probably that may help. If you are not able to educate him yourself, due to lack of education or Shariah reasons (i.e. you are not a Mehram), then try to put him in touch with organisations that are qualified to deal with such scenarios or try to introduce him to someone who has the knowledge of Islam and can help him see the errors of his ways and bring him back to living the life of a good pious Muslim.

We pray that Allah (S.W.T) guides him away from such a destructive path and lead him back onto the straight path. Ameen.
