“A Muslimah’s Guide to Living a Blissful Life” by Sayyidah Khairun Nisaa (rahimahallah) #8

In the past, mothers would be particular in selecting such a place for their daughters to spend their time and carry out their activities where they would remain shielded from all evil influences. Accordingly, they were never exposed to non-mahram males, and it was even difficult for strange women to pass by (and encounter them).

Their mother or sister would often spend time with them and teach them domestic work, explain to them the highs and lows and ups and downs of life, and create the enthusiasm for good in their hearts together with instilling the aversion for evil in them. They would also show them the consequences that result from these evil qualities and actions and instil such disgust for these evils within them that would not leave them even after marriage.

Double check that all the doors and windows are closed/locked before sleeping.

We should remember that in such a situation, because of the number of people coming and going, it can be even easier for a thief to enter and exit without drawing attention to himself.

Have we ever pondered over the power of a few words???

A country was at peace – and then a few words of information arrived that the neighbouring country had killed their ambassador... A couple were happily married for thirty years – and then the husband, in a fit of anger, spoke the words of three talaaqs...

A few words – that’s all it takes to start a war or end a marriage.

When this is the power of words and information then how cautious we need to be in their regard!
