Remove the Black Box

Zina of the eyes – can it be avoided when watching TV? Almost impossible! How often will there also be zina of the ears and several other sins. Yet … due to the TV having become a standard part of almost every home … most people do not regard it as a sin. People go on watching everything … but there is no feeling of guilt. If it is not regarded as a sin … and there is no guilt … where is there ever going to be taubah from this combo sin box. The children then grow up in the same deception – May Allah Ta‘ala protect us.

The television is a curse in the home. Apart from the sins, it leaves us with no family time to sit and communicate with each other. It moulds our children’s dark future – a life of desire and sin. They may be our children in name but in reality they become “children” of an alien evil culture.

The best thing we can do for ourselves and our children is to remove the television from our homes. Firstly we need to acknowledge the forbidden nature of the television. We need to repent from this sin. We need to hate it and speak against it.

Let us strive to clean our lives from the sin of the television before the coming of the blessed month of Ramadhaan, and then enjoy peace, mercy, ease, contentment and the blessings of Ramadhaan.

Remain Indoors

Our bodies are always on the move, either doing daily chores, visiting or doing some errand. Faster than our body is our mind. Our body could be stationary in one place, but our mind could be at that very moment travelling the world in seconds. It is this mind that has to be brought under control, in order to focus it towards our Creator. To achieve this, we need to start with our physical bodies. Let us use the month of Ramadhaan to train ourselves to remain indoors. There is no need for Sunday walks in the shopping malls or late night braais at family homes. Let us not kill the spirit of Ramadhaan by eating out at restaurants and indulging in iftaar parties. Once the body is indoors and at ease, the distractions are less. This will allow us to programme our minds and hearts to enter into that close bond and communication with our Allah Ta‘ala.

Ramadhaan Timetable

We all have time. What we do not have is a time-table. It is important that we draw up a programme for ourselves for the month of Ramadhaan, or else the blessed month will pass and our lives would not have changed. Hereunder are certain important aspects that need to be included in our timetable:

1. Our tongues should remain moist in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala, reciting “laa-ilaaha illallaah”, “astaghfirullah”, asking for Jannah and seeking protection from Jahannum. This zikr may continue even while doing our household duties.

2. Some time should be spent in du‘aa, especially at the time of iftaar and sehri.
