Following the Jews and the Christians


Tuesday, 21 May 2013 08:18

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “You will certainly follow the actions of those before you in everything (inch by inch) to the extent that if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will follow them”. The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) asked: “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Are you referring to the Jews and the Christians?” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied: “Then who else?” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3456)

Great Service to Humanity

Zubaydah was the wife of Haroon Ar-Rashid, the great khalifah of his time. Her monumental work was the construction of the Zubaydah canal. There was a serious shortage of water in Makkah Mukarramah. Local inhabitants and the pilgrims were equally in great distress.  A time came when the scarcity of water endangered the lives of people and livestock. The officials reported the gravity of the situation to the empress. She resolved to solve the problem by ensuring a constant supply of water to the people of Makkah Mukarramah and the pilgrims. She summoned the hydro engineers and the master architects and ordered them to find out some springs in the mountainous suburbs of Makkah Mukarramah. After months of surveying, they succeeded to find two springs and the 16 km canal was built at a cost of 7 million dinars (gold coins). (Refer to Wafayaatul A’yaan vol. 2, pg. 314)

Rules of a Muslim Home (#5) - Seeking Permission


Saturday, 18 May 2013 09:55

A home is a place where one finds peace. Allah Ta‘ala Himself declares in the Holy Quraan that He has created homes for us to acquire peace and comfort. One can only enjoy this peace and comfort if one is safe from unnecessary interferences and disturbances. Islam has taught us a very important etiquette in this regard which is called “isti’zaan” (to seek permission before entering a home). This will ensure that the privacy of the inmates of the home is not violated.

I’m Sorry

Generally many people find it very difficult to accept their mistakes if it is pointed out to them by their spouse. They will try in every possible way to justify the wrong. If we adopt this manner we may please our ego, but we will not improve ourselves in anyway, and will only affect our marriage negatively. On the contrary, if we calmly consider what the spouse has said instead of going on the attack, this will save us from many futile arguments and fights. Over time we will become better people and as a couple greater understanding and love will be created. May Allah Ta‘ala help us to accept our wrong rather than trying to justify it.


The Sajdah of a Woman

When making salaah in the Haramain, the Arab women insist on correcting our sadjah posture, (making it like that of men). They keep screaming at us saying haraam, haraam. 

How should we react, should we change our posture, as we cannot communicate with them?
