Why Dig Up The Past?


Thursday, 14 March 2013 08:01

While the disagreements and fights that take place amongst women may not be of a violent nature, they indeed become very prolonged affairs. Their displeasure and ill feelings continue for an extended period of time. What makes matters even worse is the habit of women to dig up the past. Issues which were resolved and forgotten a long time ago are brought up again. As a result a small issue becomes a major problem, especially when past events are recalled and mentioned in harsh and heart - piercing words. To rub salt in the wound she will then also remind the husband of all the favours and good she did for him. All this is done only to please one’s nafs (carnal desire) and shaytaan. It is time we suppress our words of anger and please our most loving Allah Ta‘ala.

Respected Ulama Panel

Kindly advise on the following matter: 

Is a lady allowed to not wear scarf in front of another lady? For example, in a wedding which is completely separate, if ladies take out their scarf in front of other ladies, is it allowed or not?

Love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)


Monday, 11 March 2013 11:17

The husband, father and brother of an Ansaari woman were all martyred in the battle of Uhud, wherein they had participated with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). When she was informed about this, she replied, “First tell me how is Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)?” They replied that he is well and alive. She said, “I first need to see him.” When she saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) she remarked: “I can manage any loss after seeing you safe and sound.” (As-Seeratun Nabawiyyah – Ibnu Hishaam, vol. 3, pg. 99)

Pious Mothers for Tomorrow


Thursday, 07 March 2013 07:50

There was a time when mothers were so cautious and protective over their daughters that many people in her very own locality were completely unaware that she even existed. Eventually when the marriage of the girl took place, the people of the town were surprised to find out that though they lived in the same town, they had no idea that so and so living in their neighbourhood had a daughter. The current system of education has inculcated the directly opposite aspiration in our young daughters. Today’s young girl wants to be known to the world. Thus she tries to have her name appearing in various publications. She wants the world to hear her on air, etc. The spirit of hayaa in Islam is that a woman keeps herself away from the public eye as far as possible. 


Purdah at Home

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (mudda zilluhu)


At my in-laws, my husband’s younger and elder brother remain in the house most of the time. This causes me much difficulty in remaining in purdah. They do not trouble me, but I find it difficult to do my housework in their presence. I wrap myself in a large sheet and attach the face-piece (niqaab) to it.
