Answer Anger with Sweetness


Last Updated on Thursday, 06 June 2013 09:27

If the husband becomes angry and abusive, never react in the same way. If both husband and wife end up exchanging harsh words, then this results in a very bitter end. When both vent their anger and become abusive, pride and stubbornness overcomes them. Neither of them is then prepared to accept their fault and ask for forgiveness. However if the wife replies to the husband’s anger with sweetness and kindness, then most definitely when he does cool down, he will realise his mistake and he will ask for forgiveness. Sweetness invites sweetness, whereas anger adds fuel to the fire of anger.


Step Children

A person’s Imaan is tested in various ways in a marriage. Among the many tests is the situation where a couple who already have children from previous marriages are now married to each other. The test of Imaan is to now treat one’s own children as well as the children of one’s spouse with equality. The mother should never show love only to her own children and disregard the husband’s children from his first marriage, or spend freely on her own children and deprive the husband’s children, whereas they are more entitled to their father’s wealth. The demand of a true Muslim mother is that she displays kindness and fairness to all the children under her care. This could very well become the means of her entrance into Jannah.

Rules of a Muslim Home (#5) - Seeking Permission


Last Updated on Monday, 27 May 2013 14:06

A home is a place where one finds peace. Allah Ta‘ala Himself declares in the Holy Quraan that He has created homes for us to acquire peace and comfort. One can only enjoy this peace and comfort if one is safe from unnecessary interferences and disturbances. Islam has taught us a very important etiquette in this regard which is called “isti’zaan” (to seek permission before entering a home). This will ensure that the privacy of the inmates of the home is not violated.

I’m Sorry

Generally many people find it very difficult to accept their mistakes if it is pointed out to them by their spouse. They will try in every possible way to justify the wrong. If we adopt this manner we may please our ego, but we will not improve ourselves in anyway, and will only affect our marriage negatively. On the contrary, if we calmly consider what the spouse has said instead of going on the attack, this will save us from many futile arguments and fights. Over time we will become better people and as a couple greater understanding and love will be created. May Allah Ta‘ala help us to accept our wrong rather than trying to justify it.
