On one occasion, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) said to his student, ‘Ataa bin Abi Rabaah (rahimahullah), “Shall I not show you a woman from the inhabitants of Jannah?” ‘Ataa (rahimahullah) replied, “Certainly do so!”

Sayyiduna Ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) then gestured towards a tall African woman, Ummu Zufar (radhiyallahu ‘anha), and said, “It is this African woman. She once came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said, ‘I am suffering from fits, and my body becomes exposed (when collapsing in a fit), so please make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala for me (to be cured).’

“Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to her, ‘If you wish, you can remain patient (and endure this sickness), and (in lieu of this,) you will be rewarded with Jannah. (Alternatively,) if you wish, I can make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala to cure you.’

“BEEP BEEP! BEEP BEEP!” For many people, there are few things in life as dreaded as the sound of an alarm clock, yet that is the sound to which billions of people commence their morning every day, as awakening on time is a priority.

However, come the holidays, and the sound of the morning alarm is replaced with the sound of blissful snores. After months of toil, the family can finally enjoy the chance to sleep in for a while. Instead of rushing, breakfast can be enjoyed in leisure, and for a change, people can even enjoy an afternoon nap.

But, in many homes, those are not the only changes...

Securing Our Children from the Unseen Threats

Every parent has deep love for their child, causing them to constantly feel concerned over the safety, well-being and progress of the child. Such is the concern of the parents that if they hear of any threat in the neighbourhood, such as kidnappings, they will immediately caution their children and keep them housebound, out of the fear that they should not become victims. Furthermore, when leaving the home, the parents will not allow the child out of their sight, and may even go to the extent of holding their hand the entire time. However, this is as far as visible threats are concerned.

Just as there are visible people who are threats to our young children, there is also an unseen or invisible danger that threatens our children. This is the threat of shayaateen and jinn that cast their evil influence over young children, thus harming and affecting them.

On one occasion, Sayyiduna Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) hired the services of a person to take him to Taa-if on his mule.

After traveling for some time, the owner of the mule led him to a deserted area where he forced Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to dismount. On dismounting, Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) observed that the entire area was strewn with the bodies of people who were murdered. At that moment, the owner of the mule expressed his intention to kill Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to him, “Allow me to perform two rakaats of salaah.” The man retorted, “Perform salaah (if you wish), for all these people before you performed salaah as well, yet it did not (apparently) benefit them in any way.”

As our children:

1. Is it important to read salaah?

2. When should we start reading our salaah?

3. Is it fine to miss our salaah?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a boy named Suhail who had very kind and caring parents. They loved him a lot and always looked after him and cared for him. But, his parents had one very big weakness – they were not very particular about their salaah.
