Q-16: I am 14 years old and studying in grade 8. I am eldest among my siblings.  My father is an addict. He is using cannabis for last 9 years. He is very loving to all of us but his addiction is a main concern for whole family. I love my father a lot and want him to get rid of drugs. Many times, I requested him and tried to convince him to get treatment but he did not agree at all. Kindly tell me what I should do to bring my father back to life. Kinza Karachi

A-Sweet daughter, you are sincere to your family but sometimes, our sincerity and love could not do. As you are just 14 years old, you can not bring your father to any treatment center without his consent. You discuss this matter to your mother and she will be more right person to convince your father. If your father does not agree to her, then ask your mother to request your any uncle/aunt for help. There will be any significant person who can help you better in solving your problem. There are treatment centers in your city that may bring your father to treatment centers on your mother's report, if no relative is ready to help you.  And you, being a child pray Allah to guide your father to come back to right path. Every one of us can not do any thing beyond our capabilities. DFN
