وَلِلَّـهِ عَلَى النَّاسِ حِجُّ الْبَيْتِ مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلًا ۚ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ اللَّـهَ غَنِيٌّ عَنِ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿٩٧﴾

As a right of Allah Ta‘ala, it is obligatory on people to perform hajj of the Ka’bah – on everyone who can afford the journey. If one disbelieves, then Allah Ta‘ala is independent of all the worlds.

In the above verse of the Quraan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala speaks of the fardh of hajj and tells us that it is His right over us that we perform hajj if we have the means to do so.

Having the means refers to a person being physically capable as well as possessing the financial means for his travel costs to go and return, accommodation and other related expenditure. If one has dependents at home, the needs and expenses of the dependents must also be seen to. Furthermore, a woman will require a mahram to travel with her for hajj. If she does not have a mahram, it will not be permissible for her to travel alone for hajj.

(Sayyidah Maryam [‘alaihas salaam] – Part Eight)

When Sayyidah Maryam (‘alaihas salaam) was confronted by the people and accused of being unchaste, she gestured towards Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) who was an infant. As a miracle, Allah Ta‘ala allowed Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) to speak. He thus raised his index finger and addressed the people.

The very first thing that Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) told them was, “I am the slave of Allah Ta‘ala.” In this way, he clearly declared that he was the slave of Allah Ta‘ala and not the son of Allah Ta‘ala. He then told the people that Allah Ta‘ala would reveal a divine kitaab to him and make him a Nabi. By telling the people that he would become the Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala, the people understood that his mother was innocent of unchaste behaviour and her name was thus cleared of all accusations.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I try my best to dress modestly all the time. Even when I’m at home, I try to cover my hair and dress correctly. When at home, my sisters prefer to leave their hair open, wear short clothes and tight pants or dress in jeans and t-shirts, etc. We often argue about this. They say that since they are only wearing it at home, and they cover up with an abaaya when they go out, there is nothing wrong in dressing like this. Please advise if this is fine.

We are fast approaching that special occasion which graces us only once a year – the occasion of ‘Eidul Adha or qurbaani.

As the countdown commences, the planning and preparations begin and the atmosphere is charged with excitement and joy. While the adults are locating the knives, hooks, buckets, aprons, overalls, gumboots, arranging for the carcasses to be sliced and the meat stored, etc., the children are probably running to and fro in a state of excitement. They eagerly pull on their gumboots and walk amidst the animals, ‘inspecting’ and ‘choosing’ their animals. Likewise, they beg their fathers to take them to other homes and farms so that they can see who has the biggest bull or grandest goat.
