Answer: (Response by Br Yassir Butt. (May Allah (SWT) bless him and protect him and his family, Ameen.)

Allah says in the Quran

وجعلنا بعضكم لبعض فتنة اتصبرون وكان ربك بصيرا

And we have made each one of you as a test for the other individual so have steadfastness and perseverance and know Allah is watching over you

Any family who does not obey Allah truly will have discord it happens to all families, remember the story of Yusuf his brothers dumped him and claimed he was killed by he wolf!

At least your family has not dumped anyone yet? Have they?

So, forgive and make dua and pray Fajar salaat on time and if you are already praying it on time don’t sleep after it and do zikr of Allah and you will see tranquility eventually.  Know in your heart that Allah is the one who turns the hearts establish a strong relationship with him like Yusufs father Yaqoob allay he salaam as he said in the Quran

انما أشكو بثي و حزني الى الله والتعلم من الله ما لا تعلمون

I only put forth my troubles and sadness in front of Allah and know in my heart from him and his mercy what you know not

والله اعلم

‘newborn who does not smile’

Q: Asalamualikom Imaam,

InshAllah you are doing well. I have been hearing since childhood that when a kid smiles in their dream it is that an angle plays with them. I have a newborn who does not smile when she is awake yet, however it is very interesting that when she goes to sleep every 5 to 10 seconds she smiles or giggles. Is there a hadith that confirms that and an angle makes them laugh or why they laugh.
Jazakalla Khair
