Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb 

(rahmatullahi alaih) 

Throughout the Quraan Majeed, besides the name of Maryam (alaihas salaam) there is no name mentioned of any other woman, and yet there are so many verses relating to women; in fact an entire Surah has been named ‘An-Nisaa’ (The Women). When the Beloved wife of Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayihi wa sallam), Aaisha (radiyallahu anha) was slandered, Allah Ta’ala revealed 10 verses in Surah Noor (Verses 11 – 20), proving her innocence. However, her name is not mentioned.  Allah Ta’ala mentions the wife of Nuh (alaihis salaam) and the wife of Lut (alaihis salaam) as Disbelievers.  “Allah sets for an example to the Unbelievers, the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut, They were (respectively) under two of Our righteous servants but they betrayed their husbands (i.e. in regard to matters of Truth) and they profited nothing before Allah on their account, but were told: ‘Enter the Fire along with (others) that enter!’” [Surah Tahreem 66: 10] The mother of Maryam (alaihas salaam) is mentioned as ‘Imraan’s wife’. The vow she took, when she had conceived, has been mentioned in the Quraan Majeed as follows:  “When Imraan’s wife said: ‘O my Lord, I have vowed what is in my stomach to be exclusively for you. So accept (it) from me. You are certainly the All Hearing, the All Knowing.’”[Surah Aal-Imraan 3: 35] Aasiya (radiyallahu anha) is mentioned as ‘the wife of Fir’aun’.  “And Allah sets forth as an example to those who believe the wife of Fir’aun: When she said: ‘O my Lord! Build for me, in nearness to You, a house in Paradise, and save me from Fir’aun and his doings and save me from those who do wrong.’” [Surah Tahreem 66: 11]  Allah Ta’ala mentions only Maryam (alaihas salaam) by name.  “And Maryam, the daughter of Imraan, who guarded her chastity…” [Surah Tahreem 66: 12]

Are we Chasing away the Angels

Angels of mercy do not enter a house that contains pictures of animate objects. Nowadays, children’s bedding, clothing, curtaining, stationery and toys are all covered with animals, actors, cartoons and characters. The human mind is such that by us continuously gazing at these pictures, an impression is left in our minds. These impressions over a period of time become our thoughts, words and actions. At times we are shocked at our child’s behavior, not realizing that our child is simply imitating a cartoon character who we have introduced the child to. Hours in front of the forbidden television screen adds fuel to the child’s love for cartoon characters and inculcates shameless and disrespectful behaviour in him/her. We teach our children not to speak to strangers, but we allow a host of strangers to keep our children entertained for hours on end in the form of the forbidden television screen. Thus they learn what the strangers tell them and act accordingly.
