Excerpted from the retreat on “Living with TAQWA” with Sr. HY
When I see someone or I am in a position that I have to make a decision what do I do?
Answer: If I am endeavoring to practice TAQWA I ask myself:
1. Will this decision or will this act or this thing take me towards Allah or away from Allah?
If it is obviously haraam, leave it.
If it is obviously halal but may end up in haraam, leave it.
