Counseling

Abu Huraira offers the Muslim community one-on-one counseling service which helps you resolve your issues or reach your goals, Insha’Allah (God willing). You can schedule an appointment to meet and discuss your matters in complete CONFIDENCE in an Islamic environment.

Do you have to be weak to come to “Counseling”?

The answer is NO!

The word “Counseling” is often understood as a term that signifies weakness or something to be ashamed about.

Here’s a question, would you consider going to the gym and working on your body, something to be ashamed about or a sign of weakness? I am guessing the answer is NO!

Counseling is about working on your inner self and finding Sakinah (tranquility) in your lives. To work on ones’ self takes great strength and courage because it’s about having respect for yourself.

Now, we ask again, Is this a sign of weakness or something to be ashamed about?

We’re guessing the answer is NO. Insha’Allah, with the will of Allah, we all want to reach our ultimate goal, which is …PARADISE!
