This is a true story of a Niqabi sister in France. 

After picking groceries in the supermarket, the Niqabi sister stood in the line to pay. After few minutes, her turn came up at the checkout counter. The checkout girl who was a non Hijabi Arab Muslim girl started to scan the items of the Niqabi sister one by one and then she looked at her with arrogance and said, "We have in France many problems, your Niqab is one of them!! We, immigrants, are here for trade and not to show our Deen or history! If you want to practice your Deen and wear Niqab then go back to your Arab country and do whatever you want!!” 

The Niqabi sister stopped putting her grocery in the bag and took off her Niqab… The checkout girl was in total shock! The Niqabi girl who was blond with blue eyes told her, “I am a French girl, not an Arab immigrant! This is my country and THIS IS MY ISLAM!! You born Muslims sold your Deen and we bought it from you. And Allah says:  'If you turn away, Allah will replace you by another people, and they will not be like you.' (47:38)"

Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb 

(rahmatullahi alaih) 

Throughout the Quraan Majeed, besides the name of Maryam (alaihas salaam) there is no name mentioned of any other woman, and yet there are so many verses relating to women; in fact an entire Surah has been named ‘An-Nisaa’ (The Women). When the Beloved wife of Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayihi wa sallam), Aaisha (radiyallahu anha) was slandered, Allah Ta’ala revealed 10 verses in Surah Noor (Verses 11 – 20), proving her innocence. However, her name is not mentioned.  Allah Ta’ala mentions the wife of Nuh (alaihis salaam) and the wife of Lut (alaihis salaam) as Disbelievers.  “Allah sets for an example to the Unbelievers, the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut, They were (respectively) under two of Our righteous servants but they betrayed their husbands (i.e. in regard to matters of Truth) and they profited nothing before Allah on their account, but were told: ‘Enter the Fire along with (others) that enter!’” [Surah Tahreem 66: 10] The mother of Maryam (alaihas salaam) is mentioned as ‘Imraan’s wife’. The vow she took, when she had conceived, has been mentioned in the Quraan Majeed as follows:  “When Imraan’s wife said: ‘O my Lord, I have vowed what is in my stomach to be exclusively for you. So accept (it) from me. You are certainly the All Hearing, the All Knowing.’”[Surah Aal-Imraan 3: 35] Aasiya (radiyallahu anha) is mentioned as ‘the wife of Fir’aun’.  “And Allah sets forth as an example to those who believe the wife of Fir’aun: When she said: ‘O my Lord! Build for me, in nearness to You, a house in Paradise, and save me from Fir’aun and his doings and save me from those who do wrong.’” [Surah Tahreem 66: 11]  Allah Ta’ala mentions only Maryam (alaihas salaam) by name.  “And Maryam, the daughter of Imraan, who guarded her chastity…” [Surah Tahreem 66: 12]

(By a Sister)

It's an icy cold winter's morning, I am sitting in the comforts of my home and enjoying a hot cuppa coffee. Suddenly feelings of inner contentment and serenity engulf me. It dawns on me that far too many women feel unimportant, unrecognised and apologetic for being full-time housewives. I prefer the term 'homemaker' - an infinitely better description of a tremendously important role. And so, as the occasion arises with its heavy demands on women, let us reflect upon the vital art of homemaking.

Travelling in the same Direction

Imagine a family wishing to travel together. However, each person has a different destination. Thus the husband wants to take a turn towards the east, the wife wants him to turn towards the west and the children want to go south. Can you imagine the arguments and the tension in that vehicle? The arguments and tension could sometime even lead to an accident. The same is the case of daily life. In order to avoid the arguments and tension, everyone must have the same direction.

The only direction that leads to every success is Deen. Therefore, the husband, wife and children must all adopt one direction and have one goal, to earn the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. Whenever the family is confronted with the issue of whether to turn left or right, all should simply ask: “What will make Allah Ta’ala happy?” This approach will Insha-Allah make the journey of life peaceful and enjoyable.
