Live Every Day Like a Holiday


Tuesday, 03 December 2019 07:27

Every person’s idea of the ideal holiday is different. Some people find the idea of caravanning across the country to be appealing, while others are attracted by the concept of camping in the wilderness. Others may feel inclined to recline on a quiet, picturesque beach, while there are yet others who spend their holidays commuting from mall-to-mall, in search of the best bargains and most extraordinary deals. Regardless of the form in which the holiday is enjoyed, the underlying concept is the same – to find happiness and joy.

However, the reality of the matter is that NOTHING in this world is stable, constant, reliable and predictable. How many people embarked on their dream holiday, only to have a nightmare unfold? Tsunamis... Delayed flights... Interrogation or detainment by immigration officials... Lost luggage... Inclement weather... Being mugged or robbed... Losing passports...

Even if one’s holiday does not deteriorate into a horror story, the fact still remains that when the holiday is over, all that remains are fading memories and a few mementos. There is no lasting happiness achieved through a holiday, which is why before one holiday can even end, the next holiday is already anticipated and planned.

The Faithful Wife

(Sayyidah Asmaa bintu ‘Umais [radhiyallahu ‘anha] – Part Six)

Sayyidah Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was fortunate to have been married to the best of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). Her first husband was Sayyiduna Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). After his martyrdom, she married Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). After him, her third husband was Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). However, these three Sahaabah were also fortunate to be married to her, as she was not only pious, but was a most faithful and obedient wife, as is evident from the two incidents below:

- One day, during the period when she was married to Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), two of her children began to argue with one another regarding whose father was better. One was her son Muhammad (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), from Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the other was her son Muhammad (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), from Sayyiduna Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Each son said to the other, “I have more nobility than you, and my father was better than your father!”

What Will You Do in the Holiday?


Thursday, 28 November 2019 09:36

Ask your children:

1. Can a Muslim watch movies and cartoons?

2. Is it good to play video games, computer games and cell phone games?

3. Must we listen to our Moulana?

Now tell them the story:

‘Abdullah, Ebrahim and Mahmood were three boys who were the best of friends. One day, when they were in madrasah, and there was only one day left for the holidays, their ustaaz, Moulana Ahmad, asked them, “What are you boys going to do in the holidays?”
