Is addiction a disease and are the consequences forgiven by Allah subhana wa tada

00:00:10--> 00:00:50

when we look at the addictions, we'll find that there are certain hereditary genes that make people more susceptible to addiction. So from that angle, it can be considered a disease. Now what we need to understand in such a situation is that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not burden a soul more than it can bear. So regardless of it being a disease or not, what we want you to look at what is within our control, and whatever is within our control is what we need to change. Now one of the taboos in the Muslim community is the stigma of seeking professional help. So going to a psychologist going to psychiatrists going to a counselor or therapist, this is something that is frowned upon and looked

down upon. And this is what we need to change as Muslims, just like we don't feel shy going to the hospital for a broken arm. We should not feel shy going to a specialist when it comes to issues related to mental health. So if someone is suffering from addiction, by all means, seek the professional help that you need and inshallah whatever is a consequence of it. leave that up to Allah subhanho wa Taala we know that our Lord is the most forgiving and is the Most Merciful. All you need to do is try our best and get the help that you need. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best.
