Happy couples make happy homes. Happy homes produce happy children. Happy children in turn form happy communities. Happy communities make the world a better place to stay  in.   Everything starts off with us as a couple. We are the foundation of the home. If we allow the home to be disciplined then the community will be disciplined. If our domestic life is in  order then our life outside the home will also be in order. Children’s minds are very delicate and sensitive. They very quickly sense any form of tension that may exist between us as  parents. As adults daily we may fight and argue, forgive and forget, and our lives continue as normal. However when it comes to children, any form of abuse that takes place in their presence, has a major negative impact on their minds and life as a whole. Thus as parents it is important that we maintain a happy and friendly environment within our home.

In the present era of trials and tribulations, with evil and fitnah surrounding us in every direction, there is no better sanctuary for a Muslim/Muslimah than his/her home. 

Once a Sahaabi asked Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallm) for the key to success? Among other advices Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallm) said: “Let your home be sufficient for you” (Tirmizi #2406). As far as possible one should remain in the home. Allah Ta’ala has referred to the home of a person as a place of sukoon (peace).

Since the home of a believer is his/her sanctuary and a place of peace, there ought to be certain rules and regulations governing the home. Without any rules and a system, there will be chaos in the home.

The following are some of the rules that should be adhered to by every Muslim/Muslimah in his/her home. 

First rule

Cleanliness and purification

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallm) said: “Allah Ta’ala is pure and loves purity, He is clean and loves cleanliness, He is generous and likes generosity, He is hospitable and loves hospitality, so clean your courtyards and do not resemble the Jews” (Tirmizi #2799).

A person once went to visit an elderly man. He was living in a beautiful palatial home. He had servants all around him to feed him, serve him and to see to his needs.
