Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “When a woman performs her five daily salaah, keeps the fast of Ramadaan, remains chaste and pure, and she obeys her husband then she may enter Jannah through whichever door she desires.” (Saheeh Ibnu Hibbaan #4163) 

Subhanallah! What a simple prescription for women to gain everlasting success. A woman has to simply do the following:

- Be obedient to Allah Ta’ala.

- Protect one’s chastity. This requires that she does not intermingle with  strange men, lower her gaze, and fully cover herself if she leaves the home out of necessity.

- Be obedient to her husband within the limits of deen. 

While this is the prescription for the everlasting success of the hereafter, it is also the prescription for harmony and happiness in one’s marriage.

 
   

The Dearest Action

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “On the tenth of Zul-Hijjah (the day of qurbaani) there is no action of the son of Aadam (alaihis salaam) more dear to Allah Ta’ala than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal will come on the Day of Judgment with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed in reward). The sacrifice is also accepted by Allah Ta’ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.” (Tirmizi #1493)

Certain actions on specific days have a special reward attached to them. The sacrificing of animals during the days of sacrifice is one such action that is most beloved to Allah Ta’ala and most rewarding. Thus qurbaani should be done with a heart full of joy. It should not be taken as a burden. After all, there is only good and benefit for us in doing our qurbaani.

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said:  “The expenses incurred during haj is like that incurred in jihad, rewarded seven hundred times.” (Musnad Ahmad #23000) 

It is not possible for the material world to offer us an opportunity where we can invest our money and secure for ourselves a return which is seven hundred times over. Here on the occasion of haj we are rewarded seven hundred times for the money we spend during haj with rewards that are stored for us in the eternal vaults of the hereafter, where there is no fear of any deficiency, loss, or theft.

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “A Haji never becomes poor and destitute.” (Majma’uz Zawaaid #5272) 

Despite the rising costs of performing haj, this hadith is sufficient to remove all fears of becoming poor due to performing haj. A true Believer places his trust on Allah Ta’ala and is convinced with the words of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

   

How am I Travelling?

Abu Sa’eed Khudri (radiyallahu anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “It is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah Ta’ala and the last day that she travels for three days or more (the shar’ee safr distance which is equal to 77km nowadays) except with her father, son, husband, brother or any other mahram” (Saheeh Muslim #1340). 

Like many other commands of shari’ah, unfortunately the injunction of not travelling long distances (more than 77km), by road or air, without a mahram is also being boldly violated by many women. A mahram refers to that male relative with whom nikah is never permissible under any circumstances, such as one’s father, brother, son, etc. The laws of deen are for our own protection. The greatest benefit of obeying these laws is that we will please Allah Ta’ala, our Creator and Sustainer. However, there are innumerable worldly benefits that come with obedience to the commands of Allah Ta’ala as well.
