It is an established fact that TV programs and movies in general, especially scary movies, (apart from being impermissible) can have a lasting effect on one’s mind. The devastating effects of these movies can be understood from the experiences of the viewers. According to one study, a wide range of symptoms were reported, including crying, screaming, trembling, nausea, increased heart rate, feeling of paralysis, shortness of breath and fear of losing control. Some people even become suicidal after watching certain movies, whilst others become rebellious to their parents.

At least Two Quraans a Year

When last were we blessed with the complete recitation of the Quraan Majeed? Among the rights of the Quraan Majeed is to complete at least two khatams a year. We want everyone to fulfill our rights, let us start by fulfilling the right of the Quraan Majeed. Let not a day of purity pass by without us having recited a portion of the Quraan Majeed. If on any day we are extremely tired or busy, then the least we can do is to open the Quraan Majeed and recite a few lines. A day passed without reciting the Quraan Majeed is like a gold chain with a link missing. That chain is incomplete and cannot be used.

Books Alone Cannot Make Us!

Knowledge and books alone have not made any nation or changed any nation. People make people; books do not make a man. For instance if the Quraan Majeed, the noble book of Allah Ta’ala which contains the entire code of life for a Muslim, is taught to one by a Jew or a Christian, then the effect of the Quraan Majeed will not fall on one. Instead the effect of the Jewish or Christian teacher will fall on one. From this it is apparent to us that the actual teacher of mankind is man himself and books serve as the means to attain knowledge. Today we hope to become the best of Muslims by being content on books and websites alone. Many people, who set out to study Islam on their own, started off with the sincere intention of rectifying themselves. However, they soon started trying to “rectify Islam” due to their ignorance. Therefore we will always be in need of the guidance of our pious Ulama in studying Deen and serving Deen.

All great men have been nurtured in the laps of women. As the famous saying states, “Behind every successful man there is a woman.” It is either the touch of a loving mother or the embrace of a devoted wife which propels man to the summits of success. Men are moulded in the shadows of ideal women.

The Play Dough

She stared at the play dough in her hands. The different colours reminded her of the rainbow that her father had shown her just the day before. She was only four years old and doctors had given up hope of her motor-skills ever returning to her since that ghastly accident two years ago. Pushing the curls away from her eyes, she miraculously began pulling at it: twisting, rolling and shaping it into the house ... the house that she would always tell her father about whilst sitting on his lap and swinging in their sun-filled veranda. He would always twirl her baby-soft hair around his fingers and say:

“Darling, the happiest day of my life will be when you build me a house with your play dough.”
