GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING

The saying “supplication is the sword of a Muslim” has been lost among many Muslims to indifference and shallow belief in the efficacy of supplication as a solution to their problems. Many have converted into other forms of worship in search of solution to their problems. Others have taken solace in talisman, magic or mystic power of some religious leaders as solution to their problems. The Muslim Congress therefore organises a monthly forum at state and local government levels called Adhkar. The monthly Adhkar is an avenue to have a way out for the embattled ones, a source of concern to their troubled souls; a freedom from the shackles and bondage of evil forces both seen and unseen.
At Adhkar, Muslims are taught the art of supplication including the types of supplication to make during different circumstances, in line with the Qur’an and Sunnah. Lectures are also delivered on similar subjects. At the end of the Adhkar, scholars sit to listen to the problems of individuals and give them appropriate counselling drawing from the Qur’an and Sunnah. This guidance and counselling forum has benefited a lot and many hearts have been made radiant with joy and relief after periods of anxiety.
