Following the Jews and the Christians


Last Updated on Monday, 27 May 2013 14:04

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “You will certainly follow the actions of those before you in everything (inch by inch) to the extent that if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will follow them”. The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) asked: “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Are you referring to the Jews and the Christians?” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied: “Then who else?” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3456)

Fed Like the Birds

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “If you place your trust completely in Allah Ta‘ala, as it ought to be, then surely you will be provided sustenance in the manner that birds are provided sustenance. They leave in the morning with their belly empty and return in the evening with their belly full.” (Tirmizi #2344)

Every person’s main worry and concern is his/her sustenance. This overwhelming worry results in tension and high stress levels. The moment man’s gaze moves away from Allah Ta‘ala, then he begins to feel that the burden of sustenance lies completely on his shoulders. Man needs to take a lesson from the birds - the lesson of trust. While adopting the means and making a reasonable effort, to have one’s complete trust in Allah Ta‘ala. This will bring much relief in our lives.


Imitating Others


Last Updated on Tuesday, 26 February 2013 11:17

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The person who imitates a people, will be from amongst them.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4031)

As Muslims we cannot adopt the ways of others. We are a nation that leads, we do not follow others in their dressing, ways and habits. Those who imitate others can never be real. They will always be “fake” and “imitation.” Therefore why should we forsake our real identity as a muslimah and try to become a fake copy of the disbelievers and people who have no direction in life. They spend their day in drink and their night in sin and yet we take them as role models!!!! No muslim will ever desire to be resurrected from amongst the disbelievers. So let us live as muslims, die as muslims and be resurrected as muslims.


Recipe for Allah's Help


Last Updated on Friday, 08 February 2013 08:03

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Allah Ta’ala is at the assistance of a servant for as long as the servant remains at the assistance of his/her (Muslim) brother/sister.” (Saheeh Muslim #2699)

This is a guaranteed means of securing the divine help of Allah Ta’ala. Simply remain at the service of others.


How to Enter Jannah


Last Updated on Friday, 08 February 2013 08:00

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.
