Concealed or Revealed?

As mentioned previously, it is necessary, among other conditions, for a woman’s clothing to cover her entire body and hair (with the exception of her hands till her wrists and feet) before non-mahram men. Furthermore, the clothing should neither be transparent, thus exposing the body, nor should it be tight-fitting, thus revealing the shape of the body and limbs.

Rasululah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to take these aspects very seriously and practically taught them to dress with hayaa and concealment.

Sayyiduna Dihyah Kalbi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates, “Rasulullah once received some Egyptian cloths as a gift. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then took one of the cloths and gave it to me saying, ‘Cut it in half. Make a kurta with one half, and give the other half to your wife so that she can wear it as a scarf.’ Then, as Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) turned to leave, he said, ‘Instruct your wife to place a cloth beneath the scarf so that her hair is not revealed (due to the thinness of the cloth).’” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4116)

If someone says something which angers you (particularly a family member who one lives with), will it be permissible to walk away without responding, until your anger has subsided?

What is the correct manner to respond in, and also, what can one do to control their anger and not lose their temper quickly?

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have a very close friend who I know for a few years. The problem is that I think I’m getting close to her in a way not desired in Islam. I also know that she thinks of me as more than just a friend. Will it be better for me to maintain a distance from her, or will I be punished in the Hereafter for not talking to her? 

Jazakallah

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)

Condition:

I am very fearful of going astray. I think about my destiny very often and I do not know what is written for me. I constantly make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala for my destiny by saying, “O Allah! Make my destiny good. Save me from deviation.”

I have an extreme desire to perform hajj and ‘umrah, and to visit the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Allah Ta‘ala repeatedly calls many fortunate people to His House. I become envious of these people. I make this du‘aa, “O Allah! You call everyone again and again, call me [to Your House] as well.”
