Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have a nine year old son who has alhamdulilah been trying to read all his salaah. However, in the last year or few months, he has been reading very fast, basically just doing actions.

How do we, as parents, guide him with salaah?

‘Sound’ Advice

The startling crack of a gunshot… the wailing of a police siren… the helpless cry of a new-born baby… the soothing sound of the mother’s voice…

All these are mere sounds, yet each sound is such that as soon as it enters the ear of the one who hears it, it provokes a spontaneous emotion and reaction. On hearing a gunshot, most people will be filled with fear and begin to panic. On hearing the siren, a criminal will flee while the victim will be filled with a sense of relief. When the mother hears the baby cry, she is filled with anxiety for her child’s wellbeing, and when the baby hears the mother’s voice, it is soothed and pacified.

From these examples, we understand that the sounds which we hear have a profound effect on our emotions and deep influence over our feelings. It is for this reason that men and women must exercise caution regarding the voice of the opposite gender, as it has the potential to plant the seed of sin and pollute the heart with illicit feelings.

How to Repent and Reconnect with Allah

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I am a teenage girl from a pious family. I do perform namaaz, the sunnah rakaats, recite the Quraan and engage in zikr - but most of the time, I just do all of these robotically, and rarely do I perform them with sincerity.

Although I come from a very pious family, my heart is filled with filth. I find it extremely hard to lower my gaze, and unknown to my mother, I watch videos late at night and I read romantic novels, but at the same time, I also perform Tahajjud Salaah and other ‘ibaadah (though rarely with sincerity).

Often, I fantasize about something haraam in my mind when I go to bed and continue fantasizing until I fall asleep - may Allah forgive me. I feel lost, and at times, there’s like an empty void, and although everyone’s happy around me, I feel so lonely.

Mental Abuse from Husband

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I would like to know what are the rights of a woman who is being mentally and verbally abused by her husband? 

Is it right for my husband to keep picking on my past and my parents, saying that they are faulty, and that they are old and set in their ways. If they are faulty, do I have to hear about it every day, whether we are arguing or not? 

Can a husband boss his wife if she doesn’t want to do something saying that she has to follow his rules and do as he says because he is the husband, the man of the house and does she have to have an explanation for everything? If she doesn’t want to do something or go somewhere does she have to give him her reason?

The Perils of Casting Lustful Glances

As previously discussed, lustful glances are poisonous arrows which lead to the total and complete ruin, destruction and death of the spiritual heart. A single glance, cast in a split second, leaves such an indelible impression that it is very often near impossible to thereafter resist the temptation and remain chaste. Hence, that first glance is like the first step taken on a journey down a steep and perilous path of evil, sin and shamelessness.

Zun Noon Misri (rahimahullah) was once asked, “What causes a person to fall into sin?” Zun Noon (rahimahullah) explained by saying, “Sinning commences with a lustful glance. The lustful glance causes a person to be assailed by fleeting thoughts of sin. If one treats and remedies the fleeting thoughts by turning to Allah Ta‘ala, the fleeting thoughts will cease and disappear. If not, they will progress until they are accompanied by (bombardments of) whispers and insinuations (towards evil and sin). This, in turn, causes (the flames of) carnal desires and lust (to be fanned). All of this transpires internally (in the mind), and (until this point,) the action of sin and evil has not yet manifested through the action of the limbs. If the carnal desires and lust is remedied and addressed, (one will be safe,) but if not, then it will progress until it becomes a strong, irresistible urge, and if this urge is not addressed then one’s entire mind will become engulfed (in thoughts of haraam and sin).” (Hilyatul Awliyaa vol. 8 pg. 17)
