Question: My parents are divorced so does that mean I have a broken home?

It’s not a broken home unless something inside the home isn’t working. Yes, it can be argued when a mom and dad aren’t together then the ties of family are broken. But when a mom and dad can’t get along, they argue a lot or have habits that cause serious issues to the family unit then to go their separate ways is actually a solution.  Often times a very tense and aggressive family life is what’s broken and not the other way around.

Sometimes the greatest blessings are hidden in less than perfect situations. So don’t get down on yourself for what is not in your control, but try to understand that the best thing for everyone isn’t always what seems to be ‘normal’.  Worry about making sure the home you’re in is always conscious of Allah, that will automatically bring peace and make home life complete. Tried and tested 😉 Alhamdulilah!
