I first wish to discuss and address those weaknesses of yours which are not inherent (i.e. they are not a part of your nature), but are rather found in you due to some external factor. Although your parents have neglected to address these weaknesses and faults within you, the day will definitely dawn when the ill-effects of these weaknesses will be witnessed.

It may be that though you are unaware of it, you have the weaknesses of bad character, carelessness, negligence, selfishness, love for luxury, lack of etiquette and respect, miserliness and haughtiness. These weaknesses are such that you may not necessarily perceive them now, but as time passes and you grow older, they will become more and more poisonous. At that point, you will have no friends and nobody will want to associate with you.

- Serve your parents in an excellent and exemplary manner.

- Ensure that they are not inconvenienced at any time.

- When cooking for them, prepare the dishes that they enjoy eating and serve them their meals on time.

- When they tell you something then listen attentively and accept it wholeheartedly.

- If they are busy or engaged in some activity, then do not disturb them.

- If they have the habit of eating or drinking something at a particular time (e.g. tea or coffee), then prepare it for them and serve it to them at that time.

My dear daughters! I do realise that (even if you do not prepare yourself while in your parents’ home, then) the day will eventually come when you will have improved, acquired the skills that you need and learnt what you need to know. As time passes, your weaknesses will transform into skills, because you will learn from the difficulties that you underwent and the mistakes that you made. However, of what good will it be, when people who wished well for you and had aspirations in you would no longer be around? It is my aspiration that you begin, from now, acquiring all the qualities and skills that will shield you from the challenges and difficulties that you will face later on.

If you think that you ‘know it all’, and you will be able to deal with the demand of every occasion, then you are absolutely wrong and mistaken, even though you may have occasionally sewed yourself an outfit, or cut out the draft and design of a garment, or cooked a pot of food now and again, or embroidered on a kurta, topi or purse at some point, or you learnt to read the Quraan Majeed and a few kitaabs in some madrasah and then left, and let alone understanding the kitaabs – you did not even know what subject the kitaab was written on! Can this ever be regarded as capability, and can such a person be considered competent? If someone has to ask you a question, then you will be left speechless.

My dear daughters

Let me give you a picture of the life of comfort that you currently enjoy in your home as well as the life that you will be leading in future, when you will move into someone else’s home.

One day you will move out of your parents’ home and live in another person’s home. Although you conduct yourself and behave in a certain way in your parents’ home, you will be expected to conduct yourself and behave differently tomorrow when you are in someone else’s home. The conditions and situations that you face in your parents’ home are different, whereas the conditions and situations that you will encounter tomorrow will be entirely different.

“A Muslimah’s Guide to Living a Blissful Life” by Sayyidah Khairun Nisaa (rahimahallah) #1

For quite some time, I have been deliberating over writing a book that will not only be interesting and appealing, but will also be filled with guidance and advice. However, until now, this thought and ambition never materialised. The challenges of life occupied me to the point where they left scant opportunity for me to attend to anything else.

While seated at home one day, I began to think to myself, “What benefit is there in letting my life pass by without achieving anything? I must try to engage myself in some good work!”

For some days thereafter, I considered keeping a few young girls with me so that I could teach them, groom them and see to their upbringing. However, I neither have the strength of heart nor the mental energy that I previously possessed. How could I then take up such a demanding task?
