Answer:

 

Revert Bohra and Family

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verse 69:

69 And those who strive in Our (Cause) We will certainly guide them to Our Path: for verily Allah is with those who do right.

 

All Praise is due to none save Allah Subhanah Who accepted your intentions to seek and strive towards the Truth and guided you to His Straight Path. Allah is our witness brother, of all the innumerous and innumerable blessings and mercies of our Lord Most Gracious upon His slaves, the absolute single biggest Mercy is His Guidance. May Allah Subhanah bestow upon you the wisdom, the patience, the perseverance and the courage to stay steadfast on this Path of Truth which you have chosen until that inevitable time when you breathe your last. Ameen.

 

Your Statement: i went to pakistan so that i can tell my family that wht ever they are doing is against the law of ALLAH, but as usual they didnt listen to me and i had a bad and a hard time over there

My dear and beloved Brother, it has always happened that when one is born and brought up in a particular way of life, it is not always easy for them to accept the Truth when it is presented to them. And even if they see and realize the Truth, at times it is their concern for the social welfare which puts them at odds in following the Truth. And that is precisely the test the Lord Most High has involved man in!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqman verse 21:

And when it is said to them, Follow what Allah has sent down, they say, We shall only follow that upon which we found our forefathers. What! Will they still be following them even if Shaitaan had been calling them to the raging Fire?




Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verse 43:

When Our clear Revelations are recited to these people, they say, This person only wants to turn you away from those deities whom your forefathers have been worshipping.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verse 22-25:

Nay! But they say, We found our forefathers on a way and we are only walking in their footsteps. Even so, whenever before you We sent a warner to a habitation, its people of means said, We have found our forefathers on a way and we are only following in their footsteps. Every Prophet asked them, Will you still go on following the same old way even if I guide you to a more right way than that you found your forefathers following? They replied, We disbelieve the religion with which you have been sent. Consequently, We took vengeance on them. Just consider what was the end of those who denied.

 

Your Question: wht will i do or how will i convienced them that they are worng

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 28 Surah Qasas verse 56:

You cannot guide whom you love, but Allah guides whomever He Pleases. And He best knows those who would accept guidance.

 

Dear and Beloved Brother, as much as you love your family and friends and wish them to be guided aright, know with conviction that it is not you who has the power or the ability to guide them aright.but Allah guides to His Path only those who themselves wish to be guided aright!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 66 Surah Tahreem verse 6:

O you who have believed, save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel shall be men and stones; over which shall be appointed fierce and stern angels, who never disobey Allahs Command, and they only do as they are commanded!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125:

Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.

 

We are duty bound by the Command of our Lord to invite all those who are willing to listen to good caution to the Truth of Islam with wisdom, patience, perseverance, and excellent admonition; and must strive to fulfill this Command of their Lord to the best of their ability. To guide them to the Truth or allow them to stray is in the Sole Power and Domain of none save the All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord Most Gracious.

 

Your Question: wht will i do or how will i convienced them that they are worng

It is an evidence of your love and your respect for your family and loved ones that you strive to present the Truth from their Lord to them in the absolute best possible manner.and regardless of their rebuke and rejection, you are to remain steadfast and patient in your noble endeavor. Regardless of how long it takes, your duty is to keep on tryingand never never ever lose your patience or your hope and never never ever despair in the unlimited and endless Mercy of your Lord Most High.

 

Regardless of their opposition, you make sure that you are a dutiful son and brother to them in all respectsand no matter how much they try to violate the commands of kinship and ties, you make absolutely sure with humility, patience, wisdom, steadfastness, courage and hope that you never ever let the situation get out of hand so that the Shaytaan is successful in breaking your relations with them.

 

And above all my beloved brother, on the other hand increase and redouble your efforts in studying and understanding the Glorious Quran, the Sunnah and especially in your situation, the Seerah or life of the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws). The trials, tribulations and severe opposition, rebuke, and revile suffered by our Noble Prophet (saws) and his earliest companions at the hands of their disbelieving relatives, kith and kin, and the Quraish of Makkah exceed the worst atrocities and oppression any man would have done to those who willed them nothing but good. Allah is our witness brother, if we were to compare their trials to the insignificant tribulations we fear at the hands of our loved ones, it would definitely help in setting our expectations aright! Allah is our witness brother, the patience, the perseverance, the wisdom, and the unshakeable trust, belief, faith, and hope these noble souls had on the Mercy of their Lord would in no short measure be an inspiration for all those who follow their example!

 

Your Question: wht will i do or how will i convienced them that they are worng

Beloved Brother, nature has bestowed man with the intelligence and ability to think and determine whether something is right or wrong. In our humble opinion and experience, it is always better and produces better results in the long run to present the Truth to the person instead of directly challenging their belief and their ways which makes them naturally defensive. Present to them the Truth in the best possible and polite manner, and let the falsehood humiliate itself in the presence of the Truth!

 

One of the absolute best ways to invite them to the Truth is to somehow get them to read the Glorious Message of Allah with understanding, even only once! Allah is our witness brother, this Glorious Quran has its own way of separating the Truth from the falsehood; for it is in the very nature of falsehood to be dishonored, vanquished, and vanished when confronted with the Truth. And when the Truth being presented are the Very Words of Allah The Most High, Allah is our witness, no combination of falsehoods have a chance to withstand it from any angle! Blessed and Glorified is the Lord Who Revealed this Criterion of Truth and falsehood!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185:

Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a Perfect Guidance for mankind and consists of clear Teachings which show the Right Way, and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verse 81:

And declare, The Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. And falsehood is a thing that must by its nature, vanish!

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
