Complete Protection

While fasting we protect ourselves from consuming any food or drink. Let us now extend this protection to the other limbs of our body. Let us protect our eyes from looking at strange men as well as from watching television. Protect our ears from listening to music and evil, protect our tongues from gossip and futile talk. Protect our minds from suspicion and thinking ill of others and generally protect ourselves from all sin. We need to protect ourselves from all actions that will anger our Allah Ta’ala. Once we have disconnected ourselves from sin, we will easily connect ourselves to Allah Ta’ala. The enjoyment and contentment of life only begins when we have a link and contact with Allah Ta’ala. Many Ramadaans have come and gone in our lives. Let us make this Ramadaan a month which will bring about a complete change and upliftment in our lives. Our sincere intention is the start to our reformation. 

 

Saahibe Tarteeb

Let us all strive to become a Saahibe Tarteeb. A Saahibe Tarteeb is that special servant of Allah Ta’ala who from the day of buloogh (maturity) to the present day, has no Qadhaa (missed) Salaah. Those who may have missed some Salaah simply need to sit down, apply their minds and to the best of one’s ability calculate the number of Salaah that were missed since becoming baaligh. Thereafter on a daily basis one should make up the missed Salaah. Once one has completed the missed Salaah, one will Insha Allah qualify to be a “Saahibe Tarteeb”.

Becoming a Saahibe Tarteeb and remaining one, should be a goal in our life. Let us encourage our family and friends, especially our little ones, to become a Saahibe Tarteeb. Let us speak about it and allow it to become a reality in our lives.

Four Roads to the Heart

Thursday, 02 August 2012 07:07

We have four roads that lead to the heart, the eyes, ears, tongue and mind. The heart takes effect from what we see, hear, speak and think. If we see good, hear good, speak good and think good, then the heart becomes good and allows good actions to flow from the limbs of our body. 

If four streams of water flow into a pond, but three streams carry pure water while one stream deposits polluted water into it, then the entire pond will become polluted. For the pond to be pure, all four streams must carry pure water. Thus for our hearts to remain good, our eyes, ears, tongue and mind need to be safeguarded from all types of sin and evil. The month of Ramadaan is the ideal month to train our eyes not to look at the forbidden television screen, our ears not to listen to the forbidden music, our tongues not to engage in backbiting, and our minds not to have ill thoughts of people or fantasize about haraam. Let us strive to have a pure heart, a heart connected to Allah Ta’ala.

 

Mother and Child, a Unique Bond

The most precious wealth of any nation is its children. They are the future of any nation. Today they maybe playing on the laps of their mothers, but they are the very ones who will turn out to be the builders of tomorrow. The mother and child enjoy a unique bond, which in turn adds to the mother’s responsibility of nurturing her child. The mothers lap is either going to be a garden of good qualities from which her child will enjoy or a pit of evil habits that will haunt and take over the innocent child. If the mother is pious, she performs her salaah on time, daily she makes time for Quraan, zikr and du’aa, she displays good character and she stays away from sin, then automatically the child will follow the same pathway. It is not possible that a person plants flowers and only weeds will grow. The good we sow is the good we will harvest.
