What is "Strive to Bring Aive"

The purpose of this column is to motivate and encourage everyone to make an attempt to bring alive the very simple actions that will be presented every two weeks. Insha-Allah by making these very easy actions part of our daily lives, we will benefit from the blessings of practising on these a’amaal and they will also become a stepping stone towards doing greater actions.
As a means of encouragement to others, and also to spur us ahead, a vote counter has been attached. The idea is that for two weeks every person reading this column should make an effort to practice on the ‘amal (action) presented. At the end of the two weeks, those who have practiced upon it for at least one week or more should vote “YES.” This will Insha-Allah encourage others also to do the same.

In many cases married life has boiled down to moaning, groaning demanding and complaining. Let every wife ask this question to herself: “When last did I sincerely say a heartfelt “Jazakallah” to my husband? If one cannot recall when last one did this, the question is: “Why can’t you remember? Should this not have been a regular aspect?”

Unfortunately we have forgotten the lesson of gratitude to a very great extent. If he says or does just one thing against our temperament or desire, often our immediate response is: “You have never done anything for me”. Yet the husband may have done so much for us.

 Due to being very emotional and impulsive by nature, we are quick to speak out our mind and feelings. It is time we remedy the situation by simply concentrating and recounting the favours of the husband. For a while, let us forget all those never ending desires of ours and this will allow us to appreciate and be thankful to our husband. Our thanks and happiness will once again bring alive the spark in our marriage. Yes indeed, husbands must also be grateful to their wives. Let us take the lead and show them how it is done.
