The Road to a Happy Marriage (Part2 - General Conduct)

1. When your husband enters the home, always make salaam cheerfully and give him a warm affectionate smile, no matter how difficult your day may have been. Similarly, when he leaves the home in the morning, make a point of making salaam and kissing him. Salaam is a means of engendering great love and happiness in the home. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) advised Anas (radiyallahu anhu) thus: “Oh my son! When you enter your home, make salaam to your family, it will be a means of blessings for you and for them” (Tirmizi #2698). (NB: Any act of intimacy, no matter how small, must NEVER be done in the presence of children, even if they are not of a discerning age.) 

2. If you had a difficult or tiring day, try to appear cheerful. Do not tell him your difficulties as soon as he enters the home. This could cause him to become angry. Gradually try to win his compassion and sympathy. 

3. You should abstain from all things and every form of behavior that your husband disapproves of. Acquaint yourself with his moods and act accordingly to earn his pleasure. 

4. Do not increase his worries. Strive to become a source of comfort and peace for him.

Haraam relationship between females

Question: 

Assalamualaikum warahmathullali wabarakathu

I am sending you this email in collaboration with my friend. We are both single Muslim girls and we are facing a difficult situation and we do not know what to do about it.

The two of us were and are (to an extent) practicing Muslims, Alhamdulillah. We observe the Islamic dress code and come from families where religion is a priority. We have knowledge on deen but I doubt we have the understanding as we have much to be guilty about.

I am 23, my friend is 19. We started working together on a project in November. The project lasted until January. It was a group project. During this period, we were mere acquaintances but we won't deny that we had plenty of respect and admiration for one another. After the project met its deadline, we somehow happened to become very close. We shared our most personal secrets and became the best of friends. After sometime, we both realized that this was not a mere 'friendship' as we simply could not stop thinking about each other. We would look for reasons to be with each other at all times. 3 weeks ago, we confessed that we felt the same way. And that led to us becoming physically involved. There was and has been no display of our awrah but we know very well that even the extent that we have come to is not acceptable in our religion.

Brother, we know that this is wrong but we feel all of this so intensely. It 'feels' real (We have never felt this way about anyone else before). We want to put an end to this. We want to figure out the 'root' of this so that we can correct the situation at the base instead of merely suppressing all what we feel.

One thing we do know for sure is that our Imaan most certainly cannot be considered strong. We truly fear for our Aakhira brother... We do not want to live our lives under the wrath of Allah.

We do hope you will be able to guide us on this. And help us overcome this. 

Please do make dua for us brother. We are in dire need of it.

Jazakallah Khair

Continue to be Remembered

Ask a hundred people what was the name of their great grandfather and most of them will fail to give an answer. Now if the children themselves do not know the name of their great grandfather, what are the chances of anyone else knowing? This is our reality. Just as we were unknown prior to our birth, we will remain to be unknown within a generation or two after our death. 

Many people regard having boys in the family as a source of pride, since boys will continue to carry the family name. However as highlighted above, one’s name does not continue after death merely by having boys or children, rather our name will continue to shine if our life was spent in the obedience of Allah Ta`ala. We will be remembered for the good we did, the good we said and the good changes we brought in the lives of people.

Tasbeeh and Miswaak

PDFPrintE-mail

Thursday, 28 June 2012 09:21

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “The Salaah performed after using the Miswaak is seventy times more rewarding than the Salaah performed without using the Miswaak.” (Musnad Ahmad #26340). As many as seventy benefits have been mentioned for using the Miswaak. One of them is that a person would remember to recite the Kalimah at the time of death. 

Likewise the Tasbeeh helps one to keep count when making the Zikr of Allah Ta’ala. It also serves as a reminder to engage in the remembrance of our Allah Ta’ala all the time. The one who always takes the name of Allah Ta’ala throughout his life will Insha-Allah take the name of Allah Ta’ala at the time of death as well. 

Thus we should always use a Miswaak and a Tasbeeh. Also encourage our children to keep a Miswaak and a Tasbeeh with them. Tell them light heartedly that the Miswaak is their gun and the beads on the Tasbeeh are the bullets. These are our weapons of protection. The child should realise that the commands of Allah Ta’ala and the Sunnat of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) are the guaranteed means of protection.
