The thing is i deal with muslim youths day to day bases,via phone,councelling.but this youth's story toouched me the most,his upbringing is not good at all his father always swearing in the house,swearing at him his sibblings,but never shows love,so this boy feels resentment towards his dad.i pray Allah guides his dad and him on the right path.ameen.
My Dua's are with them too. I dont know what it feels like to be sworn at by a parent. That, AlHumdullilah, is one thing my dad never took part in. I have neve ever heard him swear in any language., and because of that our household is swear free. I wish I could say that about every Muslim household.
I must add, "we aren't perfect", we argue, we shout, the usual stuff.
It will be hard, I'm no psychiatrist, but the best therapy is from Quran & Sunnah. All the answers are there.
If this is from a Muslim dad, then it is sad that the father could not give his child a good Muslim upbringing. His father will be responsible for his doings. As far as I can remember, the father has a right over the son, but the son also has a right over the father. i.e. the father must ensure he marries a good muslim woman to be the mother of his child and the father must raise the child with good morals (and a good name).
If this young boy can repay his dad's ill treatment with compassion and forgiveness, then InshaAllah his dad will feel the guilt. InshAllah, he will be embarrased and he will see the noor comming from his offspring, this may change his attitude. How ever, if they are not from a Muslim family and just the boy is a Muslim, then may Allah guide them with wisdom and hikmah and show them the correct path.
If his dad swears at him, tell him to reply with Jazakallah or I love you too. I've done that before to others, its brilliant, they feel as if they have just spat towards the sky and splat, straight in their face again.
When someone is backbitting, I tell them to include me (my name) in the backbitting too, then I can take all their good deeds away. This puts them off and they stop.
Allah help the boy and all those affected with any form of discord.
