From kids in junior school to senior executives in multinational corporate companies – almost every person is urged and encouraged to get a life coach. With people paying anything from R250 p/hour to R1000 p/hour and more, one may well ask, “What’s the deal with a life coach?”

A life coach is a person who ‘coaches’ their clients to progress in life. First, the coach helps the client to identify the goals that he wishes to achieve. Thereafter, the coach will help him to identify the obstacles that stand between him and achieving his goals. Finally, the coach will assist him to work out a way to overcome those obstacles, will remain in regular contact with him to monitor his progress and offer additional advice and support, and will continue to motivate and encourage him.

Hence, it can aptly be said that a life coach gives a person direction in life. However, the direction is always aimed at fulfilling the wants and desires of the client, such as being more productive in the workplace, losing weight, building confidence, etc. In essence, a life coach focuses on the goals in this life.

(Zubaidah – The Wife of Haaroon Rasheed – Part Four)

As mentioned previously, Zubaidah had spearheaded and financed the unprecedented project of digging a water canal in Makkah Mukarramah. Nevertheless, although this was perhaps her most well-known charitable contribution, there were numerous other projects which Zubaidah undertook in an effort to spend her wealth in avenues of virtue and righteousness.

One such example is that of a traveller’s inn which she constructed in the mountainous region of Baghraas (south eastern Turkey). Any traveller that came to the city of Baghraas was welcome to reside in this inn, and she had dedicated the income of many waqf properties to the upkeep and maintenance of this inn.

Abu Katheer, Yazeed bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan (rahimahullah) mentions:

On one occasion, Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to me, “Allah Ta‘ala has not created any believer who will hear of me or see me except that he will have love for me.” I asked him, “How do you know this, O Abu Hurairah?” In reply, Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) related the following incident:

My mother was a disbeliever, and I would continue to invite her towards Islam. However, despite my efforts, she would not accept my invitation and refused to bring imaan.

One day, when I invited my mother to accept Islam, she began to speak against Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), uttering such words that I detested hearing. I thus presented myself before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with tears flowing from my eyes.

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

It is only Allah Ta‘ala who has made it possible for me to relate to you a story that may inspire you to become closer to Him. 

My life, from the day I was conceived, has been a series of both blessings and trials. My mother was from a small, poor community that was strict when it came to Islam. When she started university, her father, who was the closest person to her, passed away. She then disconnected from Deen and lost her way.

She fell pregnant at the age of 18 and had no means to look after a baby. At that time, her mother, who was diagnosed with cancer, took her to see a medical practitioner. Nevertheless, one thing led to the next and after some time, Allah Ta‘ala made it such that the doctor agreed to adopt the baby once born! This was a blessing from a trial as Allah Ta‘ala gave a barren woman (the doctor) a baby, and also helped a lost woman with no means to look after a baby by giving her a good home.
