A person who was taken aback by the honour given to Luqman (alaihis salaam) once approached him and asked: “Are you the very same Luqman who was a slave of the Banu Has-haas tribe?” Luqman (alaihis salaam) replied: “Yes!” The man then asked: “Are you the very same person who used to herd sheep?” Luqman (alaihis salaam) replied: “Yes!” The person asked yet again: “Are you the very same person with a dark complexion?” Luqman (alaihis salaam) replied: “My dark complexion is quite visible and clear to one and all, but what is it that really astonishes you regarding me?” The man replied: “I am astonished that people flock to your gathering and eagerly accept your advice.” Luqman (alaihis salaam) then advised him saying: “Young man!

The fashions and trends of the day are always changing. This it self is a clear sign of its deficiency. The creation of Allah Ta’ala never changes.

There is no need for any change or improvement.

Alhamdulillah most people are well aware that all forms of photography are forbidden. Many who previously indulged in this sin have stopped taking photographs which indeed is a blessing from Allah Ta’ala. However we are still keeping and holding on to our past photographs. Those albums with our old photographs are still kept safely in our drawers. Let us complete our repentance from the sin of photography, by destroying all our past photographs. If they are stored anywhere, erase them without delay. Unfortunately with the new technology, filming and taking pictures has become a widespread calamity. Let us protect ourselves and our families from all forms of photography. Let us destroy all evidence of our past sin of photography. Likewise we should ensure that the clothes, toys and surroundings of our children are free of all animate pictures, as these keep the angels away.

Politeness and Appreciation: 

1. Do not be a wife who is demanding and who imposes upon her husband. This leads to serious conflicts. Learn to request politely, rather than demand. 

2. Do not feel shy to compliment your husband. Make him feel important and win him over with kind words. Adopt a cheerful appearance. This will light up the face of even a gloomy husband. On the other hand, nagging will produce the opposite effect.
