The Sleeping Partner​

Contrary to the impression suggested by the term, being a ‘sleeping partner’ does not involve snoring and slumber. However, being a sleeping partner is actually a ‘dream’ job.

In essence, a sleeping partner is a person who is a partner in an enterprise, yet has no involvement in the running of the enterprise. In other words, in exchange of his initial capital contribution, he gets to share in the profits without sharing in any of the work! So long as the enterprise continues to operate, he continues to benefit – without as much as lifting a finger.

Since being a sleeping partner in a highly-profitable enterprise is appealing, many people look for ventures in which they can make a once-off investment of capital and thereafter reap effort-free returns. However, when the concept of a sleeping partner works so well in the dunya, then why do we not apply the same concept in our Deen? In fact, it is far easier to set up an ‘investment portfolio’ of this nature in Deen than it is for the dunya, as the options are far more in Deen and generally, the capital is affordable to one and all.

وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى ٱلْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنكَرِ ۚ وَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ

There has to be a group of people from among you who invite towards goodness, enjoin righteousness and forbid from evil. They are the ones who are successful. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v104)

In the previous verses, Allah Ta‘ala commanded the Ummah to inculcate taqwa and hold firmly to the rope of Allah Ta‘ala (hold firmly to Deen). These two injunctions relate mainly to a person’s personal self. However, together with being concerned about our own Deeni progress, it is necessary for us to also be concerned for the Deeni progress of others and society at large.

Sayyiduna Mugheerah bin Shu’bah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports the following incident:

On one occasion, I sent a proposal to marry a girl of the Ansaar. When I mentioned this to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he asked me, “Did you see the girl?” When I replied in the negative, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) recommended to me, “Look at her, for it is more likely that there will be affection and love between you (i.e. if you marry her after looking at her and finding her pleasing to your eye, there will be a greater chance of your marriage prospering).”

I thus proceeded to the girl’s home and told her parents what Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had mentioned. Hearing that I wanted to look at their daughter, the parents were reluctant. Hence, I stood and began to leave their home.

Interference of Grandparents in Upbringing

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

What rights do the paternal grandparents have over my children? They become exceptionally opinionated in my parenting and also try to dictate the time they spend with my child.

Due to not wanting to be disrespectful, I don’t say anything, but I would like to enquire the ruling on this matter.

Please advise.

Jazakallah
