When facing problems — either marital trouble, financial difficulties, or otherwise — many Muslims are reluctant to seek professional counseling. Unfortunately, many in the community often consider it uncomfortable to speak to someone about their troubles.
Speaking to someone can sometimes help makes things better and alleviate pain. Islam teaches us to give good advice to others and to offer guidance and support when needed. Friends, family, and Islamic leaders may be good listeners but are probably not trained to offer professional guidance and support.
The imam is available to provide pastoral counseling to members of the community. If you need someone to talk to about what you are going through, please call 416-769-1192 to schedule an appointment. All consultations are provided free of charge and communications remain strictly confidential.
