Mothers of the Nations

A legacy is what one leaves behind after one dies. Your friend might leave behind a valuable piece of art while her grandfather may have left a vintage car. Someone may bid farewell to a state-of-the-art-kitchen equivalent in value to many people’s entire home. On the other hand someone might part with wardrobes full of designer apparel, branded scarves and fashionable footwear: the colours and variety of which could put an exclusive boutique to shame. These are some of the mundane and finite legacies of this world. They are bound to perish one day. They will become outdated and unfashionable. The image that they lend to their owners is redeemed the day they die. The benefit that would accrue to those who possessed them discontinues and ceases the moment they part ways.

Salaah - Our Hotline to Allah


Wednesday, 16 January 2013 06:46

People instinctively react to problems in different ways. A policeman would immediately reach for his gun while a housewife grabs her rolling-pin. A teenager simply shrieks ‘my phone!’, and a child just latches onto his mother’s skirt. The ahaadeeth clearly point out that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)’s first port of call in a predicament was salaah. (Sunan Abi Dawood #1319) His very nature would take him there. Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) would rush to salaah in any problematic situation, just like a person running for cover in pouring rain.

Many people eat much but remain slim while others who, despite eating little, just keep putting on weight. In this era of being extremely concerned about the outer physical self, many people have become obsessed with the concept of “goal-weight” (the ideal weight of a person based on his/her age, height, etc.).

The Play Dough

She stared at the play dough in her hands. The different colours reminded her of the rainbow that her father had shown her just the day before. She was only four years old and doctors had given up hope of her motor-skills ever returning to her since that ghastly accident two years ago. Pushing the curls away from her eyes, she miraculously began pulling at it: twisting, rolling and shaping it into the house ... the house that she would always tell her father about whilst sitting on his lap and swinging in their sun-filled veranda. He would always twirl her baby-soft hair around his fingers and say:

“Darling, the happiest day of my life will be when you build me a house with your play dough.”

Going Out with Cousin and her Husband

Correspondence of Hazrath Moulana Yunus Patel  Saheb (rahimahullah)


Respected Moulana

I would really appreciate your advice on the following matter which causes a lot of bickering and unhappiness in my home. 

Is it possible for a Muslim girl to go out (like for dinner/shopping/to the beach) with her female cousin and her husband. My mother feels we must only go out with our parents.
