Extremely decadent! Definitely worth all the bowls.

Melt 300g of white chocolate.

Whisk 3 egg yolks, 3 Tbsp castor sugar and 1 tsp vanilla essence till pale and thick.

In a separate bowl whip 1 cup fresh cream till thick.

In another clean bowl whisk 3 egg whites till stiff.

Fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture.

Fold in the egg whites followed by the fresh cream.

Chop 1 box of Romany Creams into small pieces.

Stir 1 can caramel treat till smooth.

Layer your mousse, caramel treat and biscuit pieces in glasses or a trifle bowl.

Refrigerate to set. Eat within 3 days as the mousse will become grainy when kept for too long.

   

Masturbation Addiction

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I am addicted to masturbation from a very young age, but I only learned that it’s prohibited in Islam and is a major sin two years ago! I have been trying so hard to stop but I can’t. I need proper guidance and advice on how I should leave it. Also, when I stop the urge, which is now limited to every weekend, I feel so depressed that I become rebellious and irritated with people around me.

I haven’t spoken about this to anyone yet. Please help me. I’m dying in this pit alone!

Jazakallah khair

Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahimahullah), the reviver of the effort of tableegh, was once invited to a tableeghi gathering in Muzaffarnagar. On arrival in Muzaffarnagar, he observed that the people who invited him had brought elephants to the station as they wished to form a ‘procession’ to escort him to the gathering. Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) objected and explained that traveling in this manner was against the fundamental principles of the effort of tableegh. Hence, Moulana (rahimahullah) sat in an ordinary horse carriage and reached his residence.

As planned, the tableeghi gathering commenced, only for Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) to learn, shortly after, that Moulana Sayyid Husain Ahmad Madani (rahimahullah) was delivering a lecture in another gathering nearby. Moulana Ilyaas (rahimahullah) immediately cancelled his lecture and instructed those present saying, “Moulana Madani (rahimahullah) has come. Everybody should go to that gathering and listen to his lecture.”

Tahneek

Among the teachings of Islam is that one carry out the tahneek of the newborn child.

Tahneek is for one to soften a date (or any other sweet food) by chewing it until it becomes a paste (so that it is easy for the child to swallow) and to thereafter place it in the mouth of the newborn child. It is preferable that the one carrying out the tahneek be a pious person. There are many ahaadeeth which mention Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performing tahneek for the children of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum).

The primary reason for one to carry out the tahneek is that it is the teaching of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Nevertheless, the practice of tahneek contains numerous physical and health benefits as well.
