Pious Mothers for Tomorrow


Thursday, 07 March 2013 07:50

There was a time when mothers were so cautious and protective over their daughters that many people in her very own locality were completely unaware that she even existed. Eventually when the marriage of the girl took place, the people of the town were surprised to find out that though they lived in the same town, they had no idea that so and so living in their neighbourhood had a daughter. The current system of education has inculcated the directly opposite aspiration in our young daughters. Today’s young girl wants to be known to the world. Thus she tries to have her name appearing in various publications. She wants the world to hear her on air, etc. The spirit of hayaa in Islam is that a woman keeps herself away from the public eye as far as possible. 


Purdah at Home

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (mudda zilluhu)


At my in-laws, my husband’s younger and elder brother remain in the house most of the time. This causes me much difficulty in remaining in purdah. They do not trouble me, but I find it difficult to do my housework in their presence. I wrap myself in a large sheet and attach the face-piece (niqaab) to it.

Seeing may be Deceiving!

Qaasim (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the son of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed away in infancy whilst still being suckled by his mother Sayyidah Khadeejah (radiyallahu ‘anha). Due to her natural motherly love and compassion for her child she said to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam): “My bosom is still filled with milk for him. How nice it would have been if he was first weaned off before passing away.” To console her Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied: “Arrangements for his breastfeeding have been made in Jannah.” Khadeejah (radiyallahu ‘anha) said: “I was unaware of that.” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned: “If you so wish, I will supplicate to Allah Ta‘ala who will make it possible for you to hear Qaasim’s voice.” At this she replied: “There is no need for that, for I have (more) conviction in what Allah Ta‘ala and his Rasool (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) have mentioned (than in what I perceive through my senses).” (Sunan Ibni Maajah #1512)

Rules of a Muslim Home (#4) - Tarbiyah of our Families (Part Three)


Friday, 01 March 2013 09:49

How do we make the tarbiyah of our children (continued)?

5. Cell Phones and Computers: Be extremely cautious about giving them cell phones and allowing them free usage of the computer. If under extreme circumstances they are forced to use the cell phone or the computer, then this should be allowed only under your strict supervision. These modern day tools are like dangerous weapons which can be detrimental to the child’s Imaan.

Imitating Others


Tuesday, 26 February 2013 10:49

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The person who imitates a people, will be from amongst them.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4031)

As Muslims we cannot adopt the ways of others. We are a nation that leads, we do not follow others in their dressing, ways and habits. Those who imitate others can never be real. They will always be “fake” and “imitation.” Therefore why should we forsake our real identity as a muslimah and try to become a fake copy of the disbelievers and people who have no direction in life. They spend their day in drink and their night in sin and yet we take them as role models!!!! No muslim will ever desire to be resurrected from amongst the disbelievers. So let us live as muslims, die as muslims and be resurrected as muslims.
