Sa‘eed bin Musayyab (rahimahullah) was an illustrious Taabi‘ee who was the son-in-law and student of Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Abu Wadaa‘ah (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

I would regularly sit in the gathering of Sa‘eed bin Musayyab (rahimahullah). However, there was once a period during which I remained absent for a few days. On my return, Sa‘eed bin Musayyab (rahimahullah) asked me, “Where were you?” I replied, “My wife passed away and I was thus preoccupied (with the funeral).” Hearing that my wife had passed away, Sa‘eed bin Musayyab (rahimahullah) exclaimed, “Why did you not inform me of her demise so that I could have attended the funeral!”

Extremely decadent! Definitely worth all the bowls.

Melt 300g of white chocolate.

Whisk 3 egg yolks, 3 Tbsp castor sugar and 1 tsp vanilla essence till pale and thick.

In a separate bowl whip 1 cup fresh cream till thick.

In another clean bowl whisk 3 egg whites till stiff.

Fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture.

Fold in the egg whites followed by the fresh cream.

Chop 1 box of Romany Creams into small pieces.

Stir 1 can caramel treat till smooth.

Layer your mousse, caramel treat and biscuit pieces in glasses or a trifle bowl.

Refrigerate to set. Eat within 3 days as the mousse will become grainy when kept for too long.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I am addicted to masturbation from a very young age, but I only learned that it’s prohibited in Islam and is a major sin two years ago! I have been trying so hard to stop but I can’t. I need proper guidance and advice on how I should leave it. Also, when I stop the urge, which is now limited to every weekend, I feel so depressed that I become rebellious and irritated with people around me.

I haven’t spoken about this to anyone yet. Please help me. I’m dying in this pit alone!

Jazakallah khair

Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahimahullah), the reviver of the effort of tableegh, was once invited to a tableeghi gathering in Muzaffarnagar. On arrival in Muzaffarnagar, he observed that the people who invited him had brought elephants to the station as they wished to form a ‘procession’ to escort him to the gathering. Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) objected and explained that traveling in this manner was against the fundamental principles of the effort of tableegh. Hence, Moulana (rahimahullah) sat in an ordinary horse carriage and reached his residence.

As planned, the tableeghi gathering commenced, only for Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) to learn, shortly after, that Moulana Sayyid Husain Ahmad Madani (rahimahullah) was delivering a lecture in another gathering nearby. Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) immediately cancelled his lecture and instructed those present saying, “Moulana Madani (rahimahullah) has come. Everybody should go to that gathering and listen to his lecture.”

Among the important rules of a Muslim home is that all members of the house sleep early. Thus, the entire family should retire to bed after performing the ‘Esha Salaah. There are great physical as well as spiritual benefits in this. In order to maintain one’s health, one must enjoy sound sleep. Many illnesses are related to the lack of sleep or the lack of good sleeping habits. The Mashaayikh generally advise that a person get at least six hours of sound sleep daily. One cannot function efficiently without having sufficient sleep.
