Becoming Accustomed to Household Responsibilities


Last Updated on Tuesday, 09 April 2019 15:33


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I terminated studying at madrasah last year. Alhumdulillah, I’m currently teaching during the afternoons.

My mother has advised me to stay at home during the mornings so that I can attend to the housework and learn to run a home. However, my Aapa wants me to teach during a portion of the morning. Similarly, another madrasah enquired regarding my availability to teach in the mornings. 

I had made the choice that I will help my mother by staying at home in the morning, but now I feel like I am turning down so many opportunities to come out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala to teach. I humbly request you to advise regarding which is more virtuous.

Depressed Due to a Haraam Relationship


Last Updated on Monday, 18 March 2019 15:38


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I’m a twenty-five year old Muslim girl. Eight years ago, I fell in love with a decent Muslim boy. I know that this was totally haraam, but I guess I was young (which I know is not an excuse).

We were together for six years, and two years ago, he hurt me by lying to me. I was heartbroken and immediately broke up with him. Since then, we do speak now and then, but it did not bother me or hurt me so much all along.

Even after all these years, I do kind of love him, but have left it all in Allah’s hands, as He knows what is in our taqdeer. Recently, I’ve been feeling so depressed that at times, I feel like breaking down when I hear from him.

Please suggest some du‘aa to me that I can read as I feel so miserable.

Marrying a Non-Muslim

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)


Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I am in my 20s and still not married. The Muslim boys I know are of dubious and doubtful character, womanisers or into drugs, drink and other haraam. Their character also leaves little to be liked.

I am working with a man who is very good-natured and very kind-hearted. He also respects me and is very keen on marrying me, but he is a Christian. I consider him better than hundreds of Muslim men, so I would like to know if it is permissible for me to marry him? He will not force me to give up my faith.

Adopting Hayaa before Allah​


Last Updated on Tuesday, 05 March 2019 15:27

When the topic of hayaa is discussed, it is generally aspects such as hayaa in dressing or speech that come to mind. However, although these aspects are fundamental to the topic of hayaa, there is more to hayaa than just these aspects. In essence, we tend to restrict the concept of hayaa to our relationships and interaction with other people, whereas an often overlooked aspect is hayaa before Allah Ta‘ala, our Creator.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and said, “Adopt hayaa before Allah, as hayaa ought to be adopted.” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) replied, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Alhamdulillah, we do have hayaa before Allah Ta‘ala.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) responded, “Adopting hayaa before Allah, as hayaa ought to be adopted, is not what you understand it to be. Rather, adopting hayaa before Allah, as hayaa ought to be adopted, is for you to safeguard your head and all that it includes, and your belly and all that it encompasses, and you should remember death and the disintegration of the body (in the grave), and whoever intends acquiring the Aakhirah, he should shun the adornment of the world. The one who holds firmly to these qualities has adopted hayaa before Allah Ta‘ala as hayaa ought to be adopted.” (Sunan Tirmizi #2458)

Encouraging Youth to Reform

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I teach in a madrasah and so I meet and interact with many young girls from different backgrounds. I have noticed that although they may be involved in bad habits and ways, they are still quite receptive. I have hope that if I speak to them and give them encouragement, they will be inspired to change their ways for the better.

How should I address them? How can I give them hope in the mercy of Allah Ta'ala and encourage them to make taubah?
