Thanking People


Last Updated on Monday, 24 February 2014 15:37

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


Last Updated on Wednesday, 19 February 2014 06:30

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.


Most Weighty in the Scales


Last Updated on Tuesday, 12 November 2013 14:01

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “There is nothing more weighty in the scales than excellent character.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4801)

A person’s character is constantly tested by different people and in different ways. However one always needs to respond by displaying excellent character. In this way one will continuously be earning rewards which will weigh very heavily in one’s favour on the Day of Judgement.


Recipe for Contentment


Last Updated on Tuesday, 01 October 2013 15:24

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Look at the one who is lower than you and do not look at the one who is above you.” (Saheeh Muslim #2963)

In our worldly matters, we should keep our gaze on those who have less than us. This will make us thankful for all that we have and we will enjoy contentment in our lives. The moment we look at those who have more than us, we will become ungrateful. Our lives will also be consumed and exhausted in chasing after temporary pleasures and gains.


Ticket to Jannah


Last Updated on Thursday, 15 August 2013 07:54

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Any woman who passes away in a condition that her husband is happy with her will enter Jannah (paradise).” (Sunan Tirmizi #1161)

The happiness of the husband is the wife’s ticket to Jannah. Her mind should always be thinking of ways to keep her husband happy. A husband cannot ask for more in a wife, if his wife is always cheerful, warm, smiling and caring. To keep one’s husband happy is as easy as just remaining content and expressing one’s happiness. 

Indeed real happiness will only be enjoyed if both husband and wife work together as a couple in bringing alive complete Deen, and in both spouses fulfilling each other’s rights and showering love and compassion. Thus, if the wife tactfully creates this situation both will enjoy peace and tranquillity.
