Remedy for a peaceful life

Q: I am so frustrated in my life. I don't have any peace in my life. Please help me.

A: Conduct daily taleem of the books, Fazaa'il-e-A`maal, Fazaa'il-e-Sadaqaat, Bahishti Zewar and Seeratul Mustafa. Further, at night before going to bed make wudhu or ghusl, read two rakaats taubah namaaz for the mistakes you have done knowingly and unknowingly and sincerely beg Allah's forgiveness, and also request an apology from all those you may have hurt physically, financially, etc. Thereafter, think about the bounties of Allah Ta`ala that you enjoy. You will get an understanding of how much you have been favoured over many others who are lesser privileged than you. Make shukr excessively and beg Allah's assistance and protection. Read the kitaabs for at least 20 minutes daily with proper reflection. Preferably do it with the rest of the family if they do not mind.

Secondly, join a righteous committed Muslim who is knowledgable about deen and more inclined to the hereafter and meet up with him. May Allah Ta`ala bless you and grant you progress with ease and barkat.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُمْ بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ (سورة الرعد: 28)

عن أبي هريرة عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إذا نظر أحدكم إلى من فضل عليه في المال والخلق فلينظر إلى من هو أسفل منه (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 6490)

مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِنْ ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنْثَى وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً (سورة النحل: 97)

عن صهيب قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: عجبا لأمر المؤمن إن أمره كله خير وليس ذاك لأحد إلا للمؤمن إن أصابته سراء شكر فكان خيرا له وإن أصابته ضراء صبر فكان خيرا له (صحيح المسلم، الرقم: 2999)
