(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #2)

At some point in his life, Sayyiduna Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) lost his sight. After losing his sight, he placed a basket filled with dates and other similar items near his musalla, and also had a string tied between his musalla and the door of his home.

When any beggar would knock on the door of Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), he would take some dates from the basket and then use the string to find his way to the door of his home where the beggar awaited him. In this manner, he would ensure that he personally gave the beggar something from his own hand.

Ask our children:

1. Does Islam teach us to be clean or dirty?

2. How much of junk food should we eat?

3. When should we use the miswaak?

Now tell them the story:

Mahmood was a little boy who loved to eat sweets, chocolates, biscuits and ice cream, and loved to drink milkshake, juice and cold drink. Doritos and Astros, Pepsis and popsicles, Romany Creams and Cadbury Dreams – these were some of Mahmood’s favourites, and he would eat as much as he could, every single day.

YouTube Addiction

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have recently developed an addiction to watching videos on YouTube. I know it’s wrong and most of the videos contain music as well as pictures of men which is zina of the eyes.

I know that if I continue watching, it is going to slowly strip away my modesty and further weaken my already weak imaan.

I feel very guilty after watching the videos and it disturbs be greatly. I have made istighfaar and tried to stop it, but due to my weakened state, I keep going back.

Please give me some advice as to what I could do to stop for good.

Jazakallah

Passion to Spend in the Path of Allah​

(Ummul Baneen [rahimahallah] – Part Two)

Hailing from the ruling family and being married to the ruler of the time, Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah) had no shortage of wealth at her disposal. Nevertheless, when it came to wealth and spending, it was her passion to spend in the path of Allah Ta‘ala – not on herself. Hence, she was renowned for her charity and her spirit for assisting people in need.

In this regard, it seems as though Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah) followed in her father’s footsteps and perhaps acquired this quality from him. The following statement of her father, ‘Abdul ‘Azeez bin Marwaan, sufficiently highlights his spirit for charity. He says: “How surprising it is that a person has imaan, and is convinced that Allah Ta‘ala provides for him and will replace that which he spends in His path, yet he still holds back his wealth from spending and thus deprives himself of abundant rewards!”
