Persevering through Family Pressure

Last Updated on Thursday, 05 April 2018 15:36

Alhamdulillah, I was born to loving parents who made a change in their lives –   change for Deen to become the objective of their lives and the lives of their progeny till Qiyaamah. So with the grace and mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, I did not face any challenge within my home, as the environment in our home had already been created and was an environment of Deen and the sunnah.

But yes, I did face many challenges. Most of us do at some point in our lives, and maybe we face the hardest challenges (when it comes to hijaab and niqaab) with our own family and relatives.

Although I grew up with some of my cousins, my siblings and I were always different (we did not go to every place that they went to and we did not do everything they did). We dressed differently, our lifestyles were different and we were home schooled.

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
