Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I shared this article on your website, regarding women working, with some of my friends.

Someone then mentioned that since Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a merchant and used to work, it should be fine for Muslim women to work as well.

What is the correct answer to this?

Jazakallah

In an age of crime and danger, where hijackings, burglaries, hold-ups, murders, rapes and kidnappings are rife, people are understandably worried about their safety and security.

Effective safety and security can be acquired through making du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala to protect us and reciting the various du‘aas of protection mentioned in the ahaadeeth, together with adopting the means of protection such as burglar bars, security gates, alarm systems, armed response, etc.

Hereunder, we will elaborate on the aspect of making du‘aa for safety and security, while a separate article on physical, practical safety tips will insha-Allah follow at a later stage.

As exhausted as she was, she put in the extra effort. “Never mind if I’m tired, I’ll do it for my hubby,” she thought to herself. She wore attractive clothing and jewellery, applied perfume, prepared his favourite meal and dessert and even lit candles, hoping to please her husband by making it a ‘special evening’. Sadly, as soon as he entered, let alone appreciate and admire, and let alone a simple smile and a hug – he didn’t even spare her a second glance! He walked in, glued to his phone, absolutely oblivious to the loving wife who had eagerly awaited him all day. At that moment, her bubble burst and her heart was broken...

After reading the above, most people would be quick to condemn the husband’s behaviour and classify him as insensitive, callous and uncaring. Now, consider the following:

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)

Condition:

I speak too much. I make a promise to myself that I will now speak less, but once I start speaking, I forget about my promise and again speak too much. A lot of my time is wasted in excessive speaking.

Please guide me and assist me to overcome this weakness.

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) visited a Bedouin who received him warmly and honoured him. So, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bade him to also visit him.

Accordingly, the Bedouin visited Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “If you have any need, you may ask me.” The Bedouin replied, “I want a she-camel to use as a conveyance, and a few goats for my family to milk.”

Hearing the reply of the Bedouin, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and said, “Why do you not be like the old woman of the Banu Israaeel?” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) asked, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Who was the old woman of the Banu Israaeel and what was her incident?”
