1. As far as possible, assist people in need. If you cannot personally assist the person, try to arrange for others to help him.

2. If a person is uncomfortable with accepting one’s service and assistance, then one should not force his service and assistance onto this person.

3. By assisting orphans, one will be blessed with the companionship of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in Jannah.

4. Those who assist widows and needy relatives obtain the reward of jihaad.

5. If one is able to assist a person who is oppressed, it will be necessary to do so.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Our question is regarding how we should go about raising our child. My baby is small and I try to save him from environments and people that could have a negative effect on him. Some family members have a television or their mindset is different. Therefore, in a subtle way, we stop them from taking our baby to their home.

Recently, someone who has already raised children said to me, “You cannot police your child forever. You will learn a lesson the hard way. I did not do this and my kids are good, and so-and-so did what you're doing, and see how their kids are.”

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I am a girl and I follow various males on twitter and there are lots that follow me. I don't speak to any of them but some post inspirational stuff while others just post something funny or interesting from time to time. Sometimes I retweet things from these various males.

My husband does not agree with this at all and always tells me he doesn't like me following men or them following me even though I don't speak to them.

My questions are:

1. Is it haraam for me to follow males and allow them to follow me? 

2. If my husband is unhappy about it, is it okay for me to still do so? 

3. Is my husband right for not wanting me to do that?

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

Where can I find an environment of Deen to live in? My imaan is so weak that I really need a Deeni environment to survive. Do you know of a good place that a Muslim can migrate to? Jazakallah

Was-Salaam

Etiquettes of the Host

1. When the guest arrives (and will be staying over), show him the toilet. In doing so, it will be easy for the guest to relieve himself if there is a need, without him needing to search for the host and enquire regarding the toilet.

2. If the guest arrives and is hungry, serve him whatever food is available or can be prepared quickly. Do not make the guest wait in hunger so that a lavish meal can be prepared.

3. The host should not force the guest to eat. This may harm the health and the well-being of the guest.

4. Do not stare at the guest while he is eating, or take note of and remark on the amount of food that he is eating. This will embarrass the guest and cause him to feel uncomfortable.
