Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Is it permissible for a lady to wear clothing that is partially transparent at home in front of the maid and children? When I say ‘partially transparent’, I mean her skin and underwear can be clearly seen. 

Also, what does the sharee‘ah say about such conduct and dressing? 

Jazakallah

Thinking Ill of Others

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

Condition:

You gave me the prescription to dispel evil thoughts about others, that I must think to myself, “I will be asked to present a shar‘ee proof for these ill thoughts on the Day of Resurrection.” On addressing myself in this manner, I find that no evil thoughts of people remain whatsoever. However, later on I start having evil thoughts again.

Answer:

Whenever you have such thoughts, think about the shar‘ee proof that you will be asked to present. Say to yourself, “The person of whom you are thinking ill is not really like that. Rather, it is you who possesses these evil qualities. You are merely seeing your own reflection in their mirror.” This is similar to how an ugly man looked into the mirror and said, “O mirror! You are so ugly!” (Solutions to Spiritual Maladies for the Lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, pg. 200)

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I have a problem. Guys come see me and don’t come back or call again. It’s like when they see my face they have to run like hell. I am not so repulsive though. It’s so sad.

It’s not like I don’t pray my salaah or try to the best of my ability to do everything right. I remind myself patience is the key.

Allah make it easy for us to come out victorious from these tests.

Jazakallah

Evil Dreams

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

Condition:

I see bad dreams very often and this weighs down heavily upon me.

Answer:

Do not bother about dreams in the least because nothing happens through dreams. When you wake up on seeing a bad dream, spit lightly three times to your left, read A‘oozu billah (I seek refuge in Allah Ta‘ala), and change your sleeping position. A hadeeth states that an evil dream is from Shaitaan and no harm can come from it. (Solutions to Spiritual Maladies for the Lovers of Allah Ta‘ala, pg. 351)

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuhu

I am a Muslim sister from a town in the Eastern Cape. I am from the Xhosa tribe and embraced Islam in 2010. 

I did not know what Islam was and I did not have any interest in finding out. I was given da’wah while I was in a supermarket. I did not listen to the da’wah and laughed because I thought that Islam was only for Indians and Arabs. I was then given some kitaabs and I went home.
