Addressing the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), Allah Ta‘ala says: “Know well that the Rasul of Allah Ta‘ala is in your midst (referring to the time when he lived with them). If he (Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) were to obey you in many matters, you would face difficulty (ie. if he had to obey your whims, this would lead to you falling into much difficulty). (Surah Hujuraat, v7)

Benefit of Pious Children

Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) used to constantly invite his mother towards the beauty of Islam so that she may also accept it. One day she uttered something against Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) which disturbed him greatly. He went crying to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said to him, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!  Make du‘aa on behalf of my mother that Allah Ta‘ala blesses her with imaan.” Thus Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made the following du‘aa, “O Allah! Guide the mother of Abu Hurairah.” He returned home happily but found the door of the house locked. From outside he heard the dripping of water as if someone was having a bath. When his mother heard the sound of his approach, she asked him to wait. After completing her bath, she opened the door and recited the kalimah. He was so overjoyed that he began crying out of happiness. (Saheeh Muslim #6396)

This is the great benefit of having pious children that they will be the means of our salvation as well. It is our duty to encourage them to acquire the knowledge of deen, and they will become the coolness of our eyes.

O My beloved daughter! The coolness of my eyes and the comfort of my heart!

You were entrusted to us and now we hand you over to the custody of Allah and the care of your husband

You are about to depart from a life that you were accustomed to; from parents who loved you and will always love you, from brothers and sisters who will forever miss you

You are going to a house that is completely strange to you; to a com¬panion that is really unknown to you

Our du‘aas and blessings are with you

Why Dig Up The Past?

While the disagreements and fights that take place amongst women may not be of a violent nature, they indeed become very prolonged affairs. Their displeasure and ill feelings continue for an extended period of time. What makes matters even worse is the habit of women to dig up the past. Issues which were resolved and forgotten a long time ago are brought up again. As a result a small issue becomes a major problem, especially when past events are recalled and mentioned in harsh and heart - piercing words. To rub salt in the wound she will then also remind the husband of all the favours and good she did for him. All this is done only to please one’s nafs (carnal desire) and shaytaan. It is time we suppress our words of anger and please our most loving Allah Ta‘ala.
