(Mother of Moulana Muhammad ‘Umar Paalanpuri [rahimahullah] – Part Two)

The mother of Moulana Muhammad ‘Umar Paalanpuri (rahimahullah) was a simple, uneducated woman. However, despite her lack of education, she had tremendous zeal and enthusiasm for Deen.

In their neighborhood, there was a pious and learned woman known as Maryam Khaalah (Aunt Maryam). The mother of Moulana (rahimahullah) would frequent this woman to learn the aspects of Deen and imaan. Due to her spending time in the company of Maryam Khaalah, her fear of Allah Ta‘ala and concern for the Hereafter increased.

The mother of Moulana (rahimahullah) also made an effort to instill these same qualities into her son. Hence, Moulana (rahimahullah) would say, “I may have taught the Quraan Majeed to my mother, but it was my mother who set me on the path of the Quraan Majeed.”

Maintaining Moderation in Upbringing #2

(Advice of ‘Allaamah ‘Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani [rahimahullah])

My esteemed senior, ‘Ali Al-Khawaas (rahimahullah) would mention:

“Beware of speaking gently and displaying leniency with your children when they (tantrum or) have a fit of temper, as this will ruin their character and encourage them to continue defying you in the future. Instead, make them aware of their wrongs, and remind them of the punishment which Allah Ta‘ala has prepared for those who engage in these sins.

Beware of swearing your children or insulting them using indecent or vulgar language, as this will cause them to learn these words and then use them when speaking to their friends, and even when speaking to you!

The Divine Remedy

Multivitamins… Immune boosters… Black seed oil… Senna tea… All these – and many other substances – are currently selling like ‘hot cakes’ as people hope that these will help their bodies to resist the coronavirus. Thereafter, if one contracts the virus and falls ill, then there are many other medications that people will take and treatments that they will pursue in the effort to shake off the illness and regain good health.

However, while strengthening our bodies and immune systems, and taking medication when ill, we must not forget that these means will only be effective if Allah Ta‘ala allows, as He alone can protect us from sickness and cure us when we are ill. Hence, we must remember to turn to Him by giving sadaqah and engaging in du‘aa.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “Protect your wealth through (discharging) zakaat, treat your sick through sadaqah, and prepare for the waves of calamities through du‘aa and turning to Allah Ta‘ala in humility.” (Maraaseel Abi Dawood #105)
