“A Muslimah’s Guide to Living a Blissful Life” by Sayyidah Khairun Nisaa (rahimahallah) #3

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.

“A Muslimah’s Guide to Living a Blissful Life” by Sayyidah Khairun Nisaa (rahimahallah) #2

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?

Moulana Sayyid Abul Hasan ‘Ali Nadwi (rahimahullah) was an internationally accepted ‘aalim, an outstanding saint of his time and a prolific writer in both the Arabic and Urdu languages. The father of Moulana (rahimahullah) passed away when he was nine years old, and he was thus single-handedly raised by his mother.

His mother, Khairun Nisaa (rahimahallah), was born in 1878 and passed away in 1968. She was herself a saint and a haafizah of the Quraan Majeed, and put great effort into raising her son in the correct, Islamic manner. It was she who moulded him into the luminary that he became and ensured that the values of Deen and piety were deeply rooted in him. (For a brief overview of her life, click here)
