Working with a relative who deals in drugs

Q: We live with our mother and we have a brother who is an addict and a drug dealer. How should we behave towards him? We are unable to kick him out because our mother loves him dearly and we fear that her health may deteriorate if we do so. What should we do?

A: You should try your best to prevent your brother from taking drugs which cause great health hazards and are after all considered an enormity, the taking of which constitutes an act of disobedience to Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
