Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

We have WhatsApp groups to inform sisters in our area of upcoming events, advertise home businesses, etc.

Recently, differing views are being posted on these groups with regards to women in masaajid, shiasm in South Africa, following a mazhab, haidh masaa-iI, etc.

Should we respond to these messages or should we remain silent and ignore them? If we should respond, how should this be done? Should we address the person privately or should we address them on the group?

Sorrow for her Statement​

(Ummul Baneen [rahimahallah] – Part Five)

On one occasion, a woman named ‘Azzah came to visit Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah). When ‘Azzah entered, Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah) asked her “Kuthayyir recites the following poetry regarding you. What debt is he referring to in this poetry?”

قضى كل ذي دين علمت غريمه     وعزة ممطول معنى غريمها

Every debtor whom I know has fulfilled his debt to his creditor.

However, ‘Azzah is procrastinating and distressing her creditor.

All praise due to Allah Ta‘ala alone, the Most Gracious and Most Merciful. May Allah Ta‘ala shower peace and salutations upon our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem.

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh.

I was born in a Christian family. I used to love going to church on Sundays and it was the only fun day, because it was the only day when I got to spend some time with my father. My father was the minister of the church and he was the only parent that I had around.

Scared Salmaan​


Thursday, 10 January 2019 10:18

Ask our children:

1. Who protects us and saves us?

2. What should we do when we are scared?

Now tell them the story:

Salmaan was a little boy who was always scared and afraid. He was scared of the dark... He was scared to sleep alone in his room... He was scared of animals... He was scared of loud noises... In fact, he was so scared, that even the phone ringing would give him a fright!

One day, Salmaan went to his Moulana, after madrasah, and complained to him, “Moulana! I’m so scared all the time! I don’t know what to do! I become so scared that my legs turn to jelly! Please tell me, what can I do?”

Attaining the Highest Stages in Jannah​

Rabee‘ah bin Ka’b Aslami (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentions, “I would spend the night near Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (where I would be able to hear him if he had any need and called for me). (At the time of tahajjud,) I would bring him his water for wudhu and whatever else he required (miswaak, etc). (On one occasion, when I served Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in this manner,) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, ‘Ask (me for whatever you want)!’ I replied, ‘I ask you to be close to you in Jannah.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me, ‘Is there anything else?’ I answered, ‘That is all.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then instructed, ‘Assist me against your nafs (carnal self) by making excessive sajdah (i.e. engaging in abundant nafl salaah).’” (Saheeh Muslim #1094 and Sunan Abi Dawood #1320)
