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.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “My Ummah has been granted five things during Ramadaan which were not given to any nation before them. The smell of the mouth of a fasting person is more pleasant to Allah Ta’ala than the fragrance of musk, the angels seek forgiveness for him until he breaks his fast, Allah Ta’ala beautifies his Jannah everyday and then says to it that the time is near when my pious servants will throw over the difficulties (of the world) and will come to you, the rebellious shayateen are locked up so as not to cause those evils which they normally do out of Ramadaan, and those who fasted are forgiven on the last night of Ramadaan.” (Musnad Ahmad)

 
   

Holdback and be Deprived

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) addressed Asmaa (radiyallahu anha) and said, “Continue spending (in the path of Allah Ta’ala) and do not count and hoard, or else Allah Ta’ala will count and give you.” (Saheeh Bukhari #2591)

If we will hold onto our wealth, we will deprive ourselves from receiving wealth from the unseen unlimited treasures of Allah Ta’ala. It is indeed sad that some women hold onto the money of their husbands. They wish to take full control of all the wealth that comes into the home and leaves the home. The tragedy is when the wife stops the husband from spending on the poor, or on his family members that are in dire poverty. This is definitely not the approach of a Muslim woman. She should help in good causes and encourage others as well.

   

Four Qualities of a Pious Wife

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “After the Taqwa (fear) of Allah Ta’ala, there is no favour that a believer may enjoy better than a pious wife. If he instructs her she obeys him, if he looks towards her, she brings delight to him, if he takes an oath for her to do something she carries it out and if he is away from her (on a journey, etc.) she acts in good faith regarding her personal self and his wealth” (Ibnu Maajah #1857).

This Hadith outlines four qualities of a pious wife:

1) Whenever the husband instructs her to do something lawful, she carries it out. She is an obedient wife. 

2) When the husband looks towards her she brings him joy. This is only possible if her ways and habits are according to his liking (within the boundaries of Deen), and she tries to keep his heart happy. If a woman makes it her habit to be very moody and pull up her face for every petty issue, the husband will start regarding it as a calamity to come home after a long day at work.

3) When the husband takes an oath that the wife should do a certain action, then she carries it out. Out of love he takes an oath and out of love she fulfills that oath to keep him happy. This is due to that special bond that they enjoy. 

4) When the husband goes somewhere and he is away from the wife, she remains faithful regarding herself and his wealth. She does not have any form of relationship with strange men and she does not squander the husband’s wealth. She conducts herself as she would in his presence. This is true loyalty.
