“Everything is fine as long as it stays within its limits. For a man to love his wife is an act of reward, as long as he does not exceed the limits. If love for his wife leads him to disobey Allah ta’ala, it will be classified as a sin. Similarly, engaging in activities like football, beyond the limits is not permissible. Allah ta’ala says”:

The one who exceeds the boundaries of Allah has indeed wronged himself. (65:1)

“Imagine, if you were living in a village, in a run-down hut, and the king of the land announced that he was coming to visit you for a few days. You would be reluctant and embarrassed and inform the king that your residence was wholly unsuitable to his needs and status.

The king in turn would most probably tell you not to worry as he will make the necessary preparations before his arrival.

Subsequently, workers would be sent to your village, your hut would be knocked down and a magnificent palace erected in its place. Only after many months of work would the king arrive in his full splendour.

“When a person is afflicted with a calamity, catastrophe, grief etc., the people around him/her; the family, friends and the wider Muslim community, all have a role to play. We often remain neglectful and fail to fulfil our duties in this regard. I would like to mention a few points concerning this which will be of benefit inshā’allāh.”

Eradicating Show and Ostentation Sunday, September 20, 2015

“The Messenger of Allāh sallalahu alayhi wasallam has said in a ḥadīth that riyā (ostentation or show) enters the heart of a person very covertly. It is as undetectable as an ant crawling! (Aḥmad)

A person suffering from this will not even be aware of it entering; it will stealthily crawl into the heart without any prior indication. The most common way Shayṭān misleads pious people is through riyā.

“During the months following Ramadān, Muslims the world over remember the life of the great Prophet, the Friend of Allāh ta‘ālā, Ibrāhīm ‘alayhis salām; a life full of sacrifice and submission to the will of Allāh ta‘ālā.

At a very young age, when in need of the support of his father, Ibrāhīm ‘alayhis salām was compelled to leave him. Then, during the final stages of his life, when in his old age and in need of the support of his young son, he was commanded by Allāh ta‘ālā to sacrifice him. Without hesitation, he was ready to submit to the Will of his Creator. Allāh ta‘ālā says:”

Core Failure Monday, August 31, 2015

“The core failure in the upbringing of our children is that we have no worry or concern for our children’s religious future. In reality we only have three major concerns: The first is their physical wellbeing, the second is their financial wellbeing and the third is their obedience to us.

If our children are obedient to us, we remain happy with them and also praise them. However, if these same children miss Salaah, go to the cinema or spend hours upon hours watching videos at home, then we are not in the least concerned. Our only concern is that our children should do whatever we say. If that aspect is ok, we turn a blind eye to all the sins they indulge in.”

“Throughout the world, thousands are graced every year by Allāh ta’ālā to carry out one of the greatest obligations and worships ­ hajj. The many virtues and rewards related to this great act of worship have been mentioned in the last issue.

However, for hajj to be accepted and for one to reap all its spiritual fruits, it will need to be performed with due care, ensuring that all its rituals are carried out correctly, along with assuring that no sin is committed. The Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said:”

When the Husband is Angry Tuesday, August 25, 2015

“If a husband becomes angry at his wife, he should stop and think to himself, ‘How would I expect my son in law to treat my daughter if she made a mistake?

My wife is also someone’s daughter and I am also someone’s son-in-law. Therefore, I should control my temper and treat her appropriately.’”
