Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I know that in Islam, it is permissible for a man to have more than one wife. My question is, “Is it recommended?” Also, is there any warning mentioned in the hadeeth for a man who does not treat his wives equally?

Jazakallah

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) is a personality who requires no introduction. Nevertheless, while most people are aware of the acceptance which he and his kitaab received from Allah Ta‘ala, not many people are aware of the great hardships which he underwent in the pursuit of ‘ilm (the knowledge of Deen). Below are two incidents in this regard:

‘Umar bin Hafs (rahimahullah) narrates:

We were with Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) in Basrah, acquiring and writing the ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). On one occasion, a few days passed in which we saw no sign of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah). Thereafter, we managed to locate him and found that he was in a certain house. (He remained confined to the house because) he did not possess any clothing and his provisions were exhausted. Hence, we collected some dirhams (silvers coins) and used the amount to acquire clothing for him.

Safety Measures for the Home​

With the levels of crime perpetually on the increase, one of people’s primary concerns is that of safety and security. Hence, in the previous article, certain du‘aas for safety and security were mentioned. In this article, we will insha-Allah elaborate on a few practical safety tips.

1. Let’s begin with the obvious – invest in decent locks and ensure that all entrances are kept locked when not in use. The same applies to windows and other points of entry. Double check that all the doors and windows are closed/locked before sleeping. Often, because a person lives in a complex or a flat, the presence of neighbours make him feel a false sense of security. We should remember that in such a situation, because of the number of people coming and going, it can be even easier for a thief to enter and exit without drawing attention to himself.

Have we ever pondered over the power of a few words???

A country was at peace – and then a few words of information arrived that the neighbouring country had killed their ambassador... A couple were happily married for thirty years – and then the husband, in a fit of anger, spoke the words of three talaaqs...

A few words – that’s all it takes to start a war or end a marriage.

When this is the power of words and information then how cautious we need to be in their regard!

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I live with my in-laws and there is free intermingling amongst the brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. I come from a conservative home and am very uncomfortable in this situation. How do I live in such a home without getting involved in an informal relationship with the men in the home?

Is there any proof in respect to keeping one’s distance from one’s brother-in-law? How should I dress before my father-in-law?

What does sharee‘ah say about having male servants, because my in-laws keep male servants to do housework?
