Question:

My husband committed adultery in a hotel room with someone he only knew for a week. I came to find out by chance. I have spoken to the woman and she says she knew he was rich and wanted to get money out of him, therefore she trapped him into this. My husband has now repented and performs his salaah, etc. The problem is I can't let it go. I just want to keep knowing more and more about what happened in that room. I can't accept it as we had such a perfect marriage. He also agrees that it had nothing to do with me or our marriage. He just went astray. I can't make sabr and everyday I keep thinking and start a new fight.

A: She should not take a ghusl (bath) or begin offering any salaah after the duration of her normal habit. Rather, she will wait until the bleeding stops. If she stops bleeding within ten days and ten nights (from the time her bleeding commenced) then the salaahs for all these days will be excused and she will not have to offer any qadha salaah. Her norm will now be considered to have changed and all the days will be considered as haidh.

Beauty and Purity

The fashion world of today has a very narrow definition of beauty. It restricts beauty to one’s dressing and to the fake facial makeup. The reality is that these superficial things have nothing to do with beauty. The inner and outer beauty has been taught to us by Islam.

Among the aspects of inner beauty, which shines out in a person’s life, is to clean the heart of pride, jealousy, and greed. All the outer beauty of a woman will be insignificant if her tongue is loose and wicked, if she loses her temper all the time or her heart is full of ill – feelings and hatred. The mere sight of her, despite her striking outer beauty, will provoke hatred in the hearts of those around her. Islam alone teaches us real beauty and purity, where the inside and outside are both beautified with real values.

Islam even teaches us how to preserve our beauty. If Allah Ta’ala has favoured one with natural outer beauty, then the best way of expressing gratitude is to conceal this beauty from the eyes of all strange men. To make a public display of one’s beauty is the height of ingratitude for this gift.
