Take a Break

Last Updated on Saturday, 17 December 2016 08:35

The Deen of Islam is complete and perfect. Hence Islam recognizes and caters for all the needs of a human being by showing him the Islamic way of attending to and fulfilling these various needs. Eating is a basic human need. Thus Islam not only allows us to eat but also gives us guidelines and teaches us the Islamic way of eating.

Among our basic, human needs is the need to occasionally ‘take a break’. Islam is not a ‘dry’ Deen and thus allows us to take a break when needed. However, just as we adhere to the guidelines laid down by Deen when fulfilling our other needs, we should also adhere to the laws and injunctions of Deen when fulfilling this need and ensure that it is done in a manner that is approved of in Islam.

Realizing One’s Priorities

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)

Condition:

Due to teaching in a madrasah, I am busy from 7:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. I then have to offer my salaah, prepare food, attend to my domestic chores and see to the children. In the afternoon, I am responsible for supervising certain students from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Because I am the only one at home, I am responsible for the evening chores. I then need to study at night.

On account of my madrasah engagements, I have no time or very little time for my personal ‘ibaadah. At times, I am able to remain punctual in fulfilling an ‘ibaadah for some time, and it then becomes difficult to complete it because of teaching, domestic chores and seeing to the children. In fact, the administrative engagements and seeing to the education and training of the students in the madrasah are even causing shortcomings in fulfilling my husband’s rights.

Rules of a Muslim Home (#14) – Leaving the Home

PDFPrintE-mail

Last Updated on Saturday, 18 February 2017 16:06

A woman should strive to remain at home and not emerge unless there is a valid need to do so (e.g. to visit her parents or relatives, or to visit the sick, or to console the bereaved, etc.).

When leaving home, one should recite the following du‘aa:

بِسْمِ اللهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى الله لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِالله​

In the name of Allah Ta‘ala. I place my reliance upon Allah Ta‘ala. There is no power (to do good) nor any ability (to refrain from evil) except with Allah Ta‘ala.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has said that when a person leaves his home and recites the above du‘aa, the Angels say to him, “You have been guided, your needs have been taken care of and you have been protected.” On account of reciting this du‘aa, Shaitaan then moves away from this person. (Sunan Abi Dawood #5095)
