(Mu‘aazah bintu ‘Abdillah Al-‘Adawiyyah [rahimahallah] #2)

In the year 76 A.H. the husband and son of Mu‘aazah (rahimahallah) were both martyred while waging jihaad in the lands of Persia. When the news was broken that her husband and son had both passed away, many women gathered at the house of Mu‘aazah (rahimahallah) in order to console her over her loss. On seeing these women, Mu‘aazah (rahimahallah) calmly said, “If you have come to congratulate me (on my husband and son attaining the rank of martyrdom) then you are welcome. If you have come for any other purpose (i.e. if you have come to console me) then return (as I am not in need of consolation).”

The commencement of the new school and working year signals something which is dreaded by some but faced by all – the termination of the holidays. Different people face the ending of the holidays with different feelings and reactions. Those who spend their holidays wisely and productively generally feel refreshed and recharged and are simply raring to put their shoulder to the wheel and get back to work. On the contrary, those who spend their holidays badly dread the day when their holiday will come to an end.

A bad holiday can be a holiday in which Allah Ta‘ala was disobeyed and Deen was forgotten. Now that the holiday is over, we struggle to get back into the routine of performing our salaah on time, reciting the Quraan Majeed daily, etc. Furthermore, we are racked by guilt for the sins that we committed and the evil that we indulged in.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I have just finished matric. My parents want me to go to university next year. I have many friends and family who are in university so I know of the fitnahs and sins that are part of campus life. I heard just recently of a girl who we all knew to be pious, that she met a Hindu boy on campus and wishes to marry him. I don’t want to put my imaan on the line by going to university and being exposed to these fitnahs.

Please advise me as to how I can explain my concerns to my parents and convince them.

There was once a woman who had a son. One day, her son left home on a journey. After some time, she ceased to receive information regarding her son and it seemed that he had disappeared. With every day that passed, she grew anxious over her son’s disappearance.

Sometime later, one day when this woman had picked up a morsel and was on the verge of putting it into her mouth, she heard a beggar at the door. Taking pity on the plight of the beggar, she gave him the entire loaf of bread from which she was eating, including the morsel that she had been on the verge of eating. Having given her food to the beggar, she had nothing to eat and remained hungry.
