Rules of a Muslim Home (#7) - ‘Ibaadah (Worship)


Last Updated on Wednesday, 19 February 2014 06:37

The inmates of a Muslim home should always be engaged in the ‘ibaadah of Allah Ta‘ala.  Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in a hadeeth: “Do not make your homes into graveyards, for verily Shaitaan runs away from that home wherein Surah Baqarah is recited.” (Tirmizi #2877)

In the explanation of this hadeeth, some commentators have mentioned that one’s home should not be void of the recitation of the Quraan Majeed. It is well known that Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had apportioned a section in his house wherein he would recite the Quraan Majeed aloud. Many of the Kuffaar took objection to this as their wives and children would be tempted to listen to the beautiful voice in which he used to recite the Quraan, thus drawing them towards Islam.

Turmeric: A spice for Health


Last Updated on Saturday, 09 November 2013 15:01

Food, herbs and spices are increasingly analysed for hidden medicinal and nutritional benefits. This is an important development as such “medication” can be used cheaply, as part of a daily diet, without the inconvenience and expense of a doctor's appointment.

One such spice is the well-known turmeric or arad, a colourant to make yellow rice. It’s somewhat strong, bitter taste blends wonderfully with curries, but it’s not palatable in raw form, particularly if you need larger amounts for pain relief. There’s an easy alternate – simply buy empty capsules, fill them with turmeric powder and “make” your own supplements. It can be used very effectively for short-term relief from severe chronic or acute painful inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, without nasty side effects.
