  1. If you don't like what she is doing I think you should talk to her about it. And yes is haram because Allah is the only person that can till you about your future or what will happen to you. I hope she stop doing what she is doing and sorry my English isn't good enough to give you more advice.

  2. sister asalam alaikum,

    what can you do? nothing. she is entitled to her own beliefs even if we or I as a muslim may disagree. You can talk to her about it but at the end of the day..she can but just as passionate about it as I am about my love for al islaam. she has the freedom to believe what she chooses just as me or you.

    again you can talk to her about it..offer dawah but being aggressive and telling her she is wrong and going to hell probably wont get you anywhere. People can disagree eventhough its upsetting.


  3. As-salamu alaykum brother. Your mother may not be aware of the strong Islamic prohibition against fortune-telling. Please refer her to this article by Dr. Bilal Philips, or print it and give her a copy:

    Beyond that there's little you can do and it's best not to keep harping on it or she may become further entrenched in her position.

    Keep in mind that she is your mother and you must continue to love and respect her, even if you don't agree with everything she does.
