A Believer’s Mindset at the Time of Fitnah


Thursday, 27 December 2012 14:53

Nabi Yusha’ (alaihis salaam) once received revelation that one hundred thousand people from his nation will be destroyed in a punishment to befall them. The strange thing was that sixty thousand of them were sinners and transgressors, whereas the remainder forty thousand were outwardly pious people. In astonishment Yusha’ (alaihis salaam) asked: “O Allah, what crime did the pious ones commit?” Allah Ta’ala replied: “They freely associated and interacted with the evil doers and did not express any type of anger or aversion for the wrongs taking place around them.” (Al-Bahrul Muheet vol. 3 pg. 533)

Women have been created different from men. Among the various differences are that their body structure is different, their body strength is different, their manner of analysing and understanding things is different, and their emotional levels are different. Islam has considered and appreciated these differences and has therefore honoured women with a role that is suitable to them.

A great scholar of Makkah Mukarramah, Shaikh Dahhaan, related the following thought provoking incident: 

A learned man who lived in Makkah Mukarramah passed away. Sometime later, his grave was re-dug to bury another person. To the utter amazement of those present, there lay in his grave the body of a beautiful European looking girl. Coincidently, there was a man from Europe among the crowd who identified this girl. He said, “This girl is from France and the daughter of a Christian. She had accepted Islam secretly and studied some deeni books from me. All of a sudden she fell ill and passed away.”

Is Pleasure Happiness?

Pleasure and happiness are two such terms which, if properly understood, will answer many of our concerns. Pleasure is something very temporary and is linked to the physical body. Happiness is a lasting condition and is linked to our heart. The material things of this world can only give us temporary pleasure whereas lasting happiness lies in obedience to Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

(unedited – summarized)

As salaamualaikum 

Respected Ulama Panel 

Kindly advise on the following matter: 

I have a family member who can be very difficult at times. We have had some issues in the past but I have always tried to maintain the relationship. Recently, when I called her, she took off with me. After saying what she wanted to say, I told her that she has a very bad mouth. She then slammed the phone down on me. I wanted to call her a little later after cooling off. Before I could do this, she called and we both apologised to each other. My husband wants to keep away now.
