(Ambiyaa [‘alaihimus salaam] Series – Nabi Aadam [‘alaihis salaam] #01)

Allah Ta‘ala is the Creator of everything. He created the entire world in just six days. Allah Ta‘ala is so powerful, that He never ever feels tired. Even when He created the whole world, He did not feel exhausted or tired.

Allah Ta‘ala created the earth and made all the different types and colours of soil. Allah Ta‘ala made some soil fine and dry, like the sand in the desert, and some soil wet and sticky, like clay. He made some soil brown, some soil red and some soil black. In some places, Allah Ta‘ala placed huge, heavy mountains on the earth, and in other places, He created valleys and open plains.

Allah Ta‘ala created all the different plants and trees. The tall towering trees, the short, thorny bushes, the attractive flowers with their beautiful colours and patterns, and all the different vegetables with their different tastes – all these are the creation of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala created the beautiful red roses, the crunchy apples, the sweet strawberries, and many other wonderful things.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

If someone says something which angers you (particularly a family member who one lives with), will it be permissible to walk away without responding, until your anger has subsided?

What is the correct manner to respond in, and also, what can one do to control their anger and not lose their temper quickly?

Jazakallah

Riyaah bin ‘Amr Al-Qaisi (rahimahullah) was a student of the renowned saint, Maalik bin Dinaar (rahimahullah). He possessed such fear of Allah Ta‘ala that he once said, “I have committed more than forty sins, for every one of these sins, I have recited istighfaar one hundred thousand times.”

Riyaah was blessed to have married an exceedingly pious woman. On the first morning which he spent with his bride, she began kneading dough (to prepare bread). Observing this, he said, “Why don’t you look for a woman to do this work for you?” She immediately (declined and) said, “The man I married is Riyaah Al-Qaisi (rahimahullah) (i.e. a man known for piety). I do not think that I have married an obstinate tyrant (i.e. a man hankering after servants and the world).”

Basheer and the Beggar

Ask our children:

1. How should we treat beggars?

2. Is it fine to laugh at people and make fun of them?

Now tell them the story:

“Knock knock! Knock knock!” There was a knock at the door! “Basheer! Go and see who it is!” Basheer’s mother called out. “Jee mummy!” replied Basheer. He went to the door, opened it and saw a dirty and smelly man standing before him. He was wearing ragged, torn clothing, and his toes were poking out of holes in his shoes. The man saw young Basheer and asked softly, “Young man! Can you please give me something to eat? I’m very hungry, and I don’t have any food!”
