The Etiquettes of Giving and Receiving Gifts


Thursday, 13 September 2018 09:18

1. The purpose of giving a gift is to engender love and affection in the heart.

2. Try to give a person something that he will like and appreciate.

3. Do not give someone such a gift that will create difficulty for him e.g. giving a very large and heavy gift to a person that is travelling (as it will be difficult for him to carry it and take it with him).

4. Do not give a gift anonymously, as the purpose of engendering love will be lost when the giver of the gift is unknown.

5. Do not ask a person for something or for some favour after giving them a gift, as they will feel compelled to fulfil your request. Furthermore, this gift will actually be a form of bribery.

Self-Reformation and Acquiring Knowledge

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Recently, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of Islamic knowledge that I do not know due to leaving madrasah at a very young age. I find that it is much easier for boys to learn about Deen and gain reformation through going out in jamaat or through attaching themselves to a shaikh, etc. However, for girls it is more difficult.

I would just like to enquire as to how girls should reform themselves in this instance, where they find it difficult and embarrassing to go back to madrasah at such an old age, and they find it extremely difficult to find and make friends with people who are good company and will help with one’s reformation.

Sublime Display of Submission

On one occasion, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) bought a cushion which was decorated with pictures (of animate objects). When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) later arrived, he saw the cushion from outside the home before he could enter. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus refrained from entering the home and remained standing in the doorway.

When Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) standing in the doorway, and noticed the signs of anger evident on his blessed face, she immediately exclaimed, “I repent to Allah Ta‘ala and His Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!”

Helpful Humairaa

Ask our children:

1. Should we listen to our mother?

2. Should we make our mother happy or sad?

3. Should we be helpful?

Now tell them the story:

Once, there was a little girl named Humairaa. She was a very intelligent girl, but she had one very bad habit – she did not listen to her mother and she was not helpful. Her mother would have to tell her the same thing over and over until she would listen.
