The Lajnah (Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’) was asked the following question:
What is your advice to young people who go astray during adolescence?
Young people should be mindful of Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) in all their matters and live according to the pillars of Islam. They also have to abide by the Sunnah of their Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). They should not waste their time and they have to busy themselves with what is of benefit for them in this world and the Hereafter. Most important, they should avoid and guard themselves against bad friends to be safe from their evil and shield themselves from trials.
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
