Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Kindly advise me.

My situation is as follows:

I’m a 19-year-old girl. I understand that 19 to some may look really small, but to a person like me, who has been looking forward to marriage for the past 2 years, it feels old.

The whole issue is, I understand that my parents feel they are doing what’s best for me, but they don’t realise that all their actions are making things difficult for me.

There was once a man who had four sons. When he fell ill (and was nearing his end), one of his sons (was so eager to serve him and enjoy the exclusive privilege of caring for him, that he) told the other three sons, “Either you nurse him in his sickness and forfeit your shares of his estate; or I will nurse him and forfeit my share of the estate.” His brothers were pleased with his proposition and left him to nurse their father on his own.

When the father eventually passed away, then as agreed, the son who nursed him did not take any share from the estate. Thereafter, he saw a dream one night in which a person told him that one hundred dinaars (gold coins) were kept at a certain place, and he should take these coins. He asked the person whether the money contained barakah (blessings), to which the person replied in the negative.

The following morning, when he related the dream to his wife, she insisted that he should take the money saying, “Having some food to eat and clothing to wear is (sufficient) barakah.” However, he, did not agree.

In the Quraan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala commands us, “Eat, drink and do not be extravagant, indeed Allah Ta‘ala does not like those who are extravagant.” (Surah Aa’raaf v31)

Food and drink are necessities of life and are required for human survival. Yet, in the above verse, we are prohibited from being extravagant in food and drink. Thus, we understand that when extravagance and wastefulness is prohibited in food and drink, then it is prohibited in other similar avenues as well – such as wastefulness and extravagance in clothing.  

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Eat, drink and give in sadaqah, and wear clothing without extravagance and ostentation (worn to show off and impress).” (Sunan Ibni Maajah #3605)

(Sayyidah Safiyyah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] Part One)

Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was the daughter of a Jewish leader, Huyayy bin Akhtab, who intensely hated and opposed Islam. He did his utmost to eradicate Deen and exterminate Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Muslims. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) attacked Khaibar, Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was among the prisoners that were captured.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) invited her to accept Islam, in which case he would keep her for himself. He (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also allowed her to remain a Jew if she chose to do so, and even offered to free her, allowing her to reunite with her people.

Ask our Children:

1. How should a Muslim dress?

2. Can we hide from Allah Ta‘ala?

3. What should we do if we make a mistake and do something wrong?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a girl named Maseehah who lived with her parents in a little house. Her parents taught her good values, told her how important it is to always make Allah Ta‘ala happy, and always reminded her to be a good Muslimah. Maseehah was a good child and generally listened to her parents, but sometimes she would make a mistake and do something naughty.
