Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

What rights do the paternal grandparents have over my children? They become exceptionally opinionated in my parenting and also try to dictate the time they spend with my child.

Due to not wanting to be disrespectful, I don’t say anything, but I would like to enquire the ruling on this matter.

Please advise.

Jazakallah

Imaam ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) is a personality whose fame precedes him. He was blessed in the fields of hadeeth, fiqh and striving in the path of Allah Ta‘ala, among other fields, and was also among the greatest saints of his time.

A person once asked ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) what had caused him to set out on the path of acquiring the knowledge of Deen. He gave the following reply:

I was a youngster who would drink intoxicating substances. I would love music, and I would take great enjoyment from indulging in these evil actions. On one occasion, when the apples and other fruit had ripened, I called my friends to an orchard. We ate and drank, until we had drunk so much that we were intoxicated and fell asleep. At the very end of the night, just before subah saadiq, I awoke and picked up a lute. I then began to play it while singing the following couplets:

With the joyous occasion of ‘Eid almost upon us, the environment is charged with excitement and happiness permeates the atmosphere. From children to adults – everyone welcomes the day of ‘Eid with open arms and wishes that it would never end.

Now, imagine if every day of our lives could be ‘Eid! Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Fortunately, we don’t have to limit this desire to the realm of our imagination – we can make it a reality.

Hasan Basri (rahimahullah) once mentioned, “Every day in which a person did not disobey Allah Ta‘ala is a day of ‘Eid, and every day that a person spends in the obedience, remembrance and gratitude of Allah Ta‘ala is a day of ‘Eid.” (Lataaiful Ma‘aarif pg. 485)

(Wife of Nabi Ayyoob [‘alaihis salaam] – Part Two)

Nabi Ayyoob (‘alaihis salaam) remained in the state of sickness for more than eighteen years, yet he and his respected wife remained patient and steadfast.

One day, Shaitaan approached the wife of Nabi Ayyoob (‘alaihis salaam) in the form of a doctor. As he had adopted this form and appeared to be a normal person, she did not realise that it was actually Shaitaan in front of her. Thinking him to be a doctor, she asked him, out of concern for her husband, whether he had any cure for his illness. Shaitaan said, “I do have a cure. However, in return for the cure, he must address me and say, ‘You have cured me’. I do not want any other compensation for my treatment.”
