Eating while Fasting

A man came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) informing him of two women who were fasting and were about to die of thirst. Initially Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) ignored him but when he came for a second time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) called for the women. When they came, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) ordered one of them to vomit in a bowl that was brought. She vomited flesh, blood and pus that filled half the bowl. Then he ordered the second one to vomit as well, and she vomited the same that had now filled the entire bowl. Thereafter Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “These two women observed fast from that which is normally permissible (i.e. food and drink) but have broken their fast on that which is always impermissible. They sat eating the flesh of people (i.e. backbiting).” (Musnad Ahmad #23653)

Allah Ta‘ala Loves Kindness

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Verily Allah Ta‘ala is kind, He loves kindness and He grants upon kindness that which He does not grant upon harshness.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4807)

When a parent likes things in a certain way, then it is only natural that the parent will love that child who adopts that way more. Now, when Allah Ta‘ala is kind and He loves kindness, imagine what we will enjoy from the treasure of Allah Ta‘ala if we also adopt kindness. Kindness is that special means by which we will enjoy the favours of Allah Ta‘ala.

   

“Islamic” Alcohol and Music

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “There will be people from my Ummah, who will consume alcohol after changing its name, on their heads will be instruments of music and singing girls. Allah Ta‘ala will make the ground swallow them and mutate them into apes and swine.” (Saheeh Ibni Hibbaan #6758)

May Allah Ta‘ala protect us from being amongst those people who will consume what is unlawful and be so bold to re-label the unlawful as lawful. When pleasure and carnal desire becomes the goal, then everything possible will be done so as to enjoy it, even if be the legalising of alcohol and music by calling it “Islamic”. Such persons no longer qualify to be from amongst the human race, thus they will be changed into apes and swine. They are a burden on earth, thus they will be swallowed by the ground.

   

Thanking People

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “The one who does not thank people does not thank Allah.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4811)

Thanking people is indirectly thanking Allah Ta‘ala. It signifies our acknowledgement and appreciation of the bounties of Allah Ta‘ala. If we fail to thank the people we see and meet, how will we ever become grateful to Allah Ta‘ala, who we cannot see in this world. Thanking people is a stepping stone to becoming a grateful servant of Allah Ta‘ala.

   

The Best Salaah

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “The salaah of a woman in her bedroom is more virtuous than her salaah in her entrance hall, and her salaah in her closet is more virtuous than her salaah in her bedroom.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #570)

A Muslim woman’s life and actions are all based on concealment. The overriding trait in her life is modesty and shyness. The women of the past were such that a single instruction of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was sufficient to motivate them to act accordingly. Since they had the desire to act on deen, they performed salaah in their homes in keeping with the spirit of Islam. The women of today read a lot and listen a lot, but there is little desire to practice. Many who do practice, do so in a manner where deen is subjected to their desire, hence the spirit of deen is not fulfilled. Instead it is merely an appearance. Thus we are faced with the modern day women who wrongfully wish to perform salaah with the men at the musjid and at the eid-gah despite all the eminent wrongs that are associated with it, moving completely against the spirit of Islam.
