Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) underwent great difficulties and opposition in Makkah Mukarramah, due to which he was naturally affected and his morale was low. Allah Ta‘ala revealed two surahs filled with inspiration and encouragement to console him and uplift his morale. The first is Surah Dhuha, followed by Surah Alam Nashrah.

Although these surahs were revealed primarily to uplift the morale of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the message of these surahs is extremely motivational and uplifting for every individual. Therefore, a summary of the message of these surahs is presented in this book.

Every parent is responsible for their child. As such, it is the duty of every parent to train and equip their child with the necessary and relevant skills, knowledge and understanding that they will require throughout their life.

Be it training in matters of hygiene, such as potty-training, teaching the child to bath himself, clean his teeth, etc., or in other basic skills, such as preparing a simple snack, packing the laundry away, cleaning a mess, etc. – every responsible parent ensures that their child receives practical training in order for the teaching to be effective and take root.

In the very same way, when it comes to matters of Deen, it is absolutely vital for parents to give their children practical training, according to their age, understanding and capability, so that the child will be equipped to traverse the path to Jannah. Through practical training, the lesson and teaching will become firmly entrenched and embedded in the heart and mind of the child and will remain with him until his death.

(Sayyidah Safiyyah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] - Part Two)

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was departing from Khaibar, and his camel was brought, He (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) placed his blessed foot on the ground and knelt, offering Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) his thigh, so that she could place her foot on his thigh and mount the camel. However, she declined to place her foot on his blessed thigh, out of respect, and instead placed her knee on his blessed thigh in order to mount the camel.

Initially, some Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), who did not witness the nikaah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), were not sure regarding whether Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had kept Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) as his slave or had taken her as his respected wife. Due to the fact that hijaab and niqaab is necessary on free women, not on slave women, these Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) said, “If he conceals her, she is his wife. If not, she is his slave.”

“Alhamdulillah!” How often do we not hear these words, exclaiming the praise of Allah Ta‘ala?

Indeed, our Deen teaches us to recite these words on a multitude of occasions. When wearing our clothing… after eating… after drinking… when commencing a journey… before making wudhu… on awakening… In fact, even the Quraan Majeed commences with the words “Alhamdulillah”!

When we say “Alhamdulillah”, we are praising Allah Ta‘ala by accepting that He is the One who blessed us with all goodness and every favour that we enjoy. Our imaan, beauty, wealth, strength, intelligence, dignity and other bounties are all from Allah Ta‘ala – Alhamdulillah!
