The art of speech

How you talk, how you respond – how you advise has more of an effect than what you say. How you make people feel is more vital than what you make people hear.
Demeanor – decorum – the art of speech.

Experience them. Live them. Feel them. Express gratitude for them.

Have an idea to do good?

Write it down. Make a plan. Seek clarity and guidance through du’a and istikhaarah.

Pay attention to your intention. Execute.

Address any uncertainties/unforeseen circumstances through clear thinking, du’a, tweaking plans, and seeking counsel.

Continue. Complete.

Realise that your completion, or journey, may not be as you had envisioned.

Realise that there will be obstacles and tests.

Experience them. Live them. Feel them. Express gratitude for them.

Take the lessons. This is where growth lies: in the journey.

Express gratitude upon completion. Ask Allah to accept. Ask for forgiveness for any mistakes and shortcomings. Repeat 🙂

He calls you to Allāh

True Brothers

The Imām, Shaykh ʿAbd al ‘Azīz ibn Bāz [رحمه الله] said:

“So your brother is the one who advises you, reminds you, and alerts you.

Your brother is not the one who gives you no thought, avoids you, or speaks to you with pretty words that lack real truth and sincerity.

Rather, your brother, in reality, is the one who advises you, the one who admonishes you, and reminds you.

He calls you to Allāh, keeps explaining to you the path to deliverance clearly until you follow it, and warns you about the path to destruction – he keeps explaining to you how evil its end is until you avoid it.”

Majmūʿ Fatāwá Wa Maqālāt Mutanawiʿah, (14/21) |Translated by Mikail ibn Mahboob Ariff

Show concern for the Ahl-ul-Sunnah

From Sufyaan ath-Thawree [رحمه الله] who said:

«استوصوا بأهل السنة خيرا فإنهم غرباء»

“Show concern for the Ahl-ul-Sunnah with goodness since indeed they are the Ghuraba.”

[Al-Laalkaa’iee, (1/64/49) | Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya, Miraath al-Anbiyya]

I am not allowed to waste an hour of my life.

“I am not allowed to waste an hour of my life.”

Ibn Aqīl [رحمه الله] said:

“I am not allowed to waste an hour of my life. Even when I am not delivering lessons or reading, my mind would still be occupied with some matters whilst I’m lying down, and I will not get up until I find something useful to write. I still find zeal in my search for knowledge whilst [I am] in my eighties more than when I were in my twenties.”

[Ibn al-Jawzī, al-Muntadham, (9/214) | Translated by Salah al-Iranee]

Rights of a Wife upon Her Husband

71376f5d-b0e2-4f69-a0d6-3ea6da0bcedd

12 Rights of a Wife upon Her Husband:

1. To spend upon her, to feed her. Not to be excessive in this and not to be stingy.

2. To be kind to her.

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said: “The best among you is the one who is the best towards his wife.“

3. Not to harm her.

4. To be loving to her, examples:

(A) Loving to her with your tongue. Nice words, tell her you love her. Tell her how good she looks.

(B) If your wife asks you to get her something and you can’t get it , say I’ll get it in shaa’ Allāh.

© That the man beautifies himself with that which is reasonable, (not intimating women).

(D) From being loving to your wife is that you help her with housework. This is from the example of the prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)

(E) That he is to be playful with his wife.

(F) Sharing food with her.

(G) To cuddle with her.

(H) Sleep under the same cover.

(I) they would bathe together:

On the authority of ‘Āʿishah (raḍī Allāhu ʿʿʿanhu) who said: “I used to bathe with the Prophet from a single container of water which was placed between us such that our hands collided inside it. He used to race me such that I would say: “Leave some for me, leave some for me!’ She added: `We were in a state of Janaabah (i.e. the state of having slept together).’”[Al-Bukhārī and Muslim].

5. That the men must not curse or swear at his wife, or insult her appearance.

6. A man must not boycott her and if he does (for a valid reason) he should do it inside of the home.

7. A man should not expose the secrets of his wife

“Verily among the worst people before Allāh on the Day of Judgement is a man who approaches his wife sexually and she responds and then he spreads her secrets.” [Muslim, Ibn Abī Shaybah, Aḥmad and others].

8. A man should not hate his wife. Exalt the good and minimise her shortcomings.

A man should not be angry at her faults and should look at her good. To look only good in her.

9. That he should make things easy upon her e.g. The chores and what he requires from her.

10. He should have the best manners with his wife. His wife should see the best of his manners. It is said that some men have the best manners out in the market , but when he goes home he is a ferocious lion! Kind to strange women in the markets but not to his wife in the home. The best of you are the best of you to your wives. There is no good in you if you want to help your friends but not your wife, there is no good in you if you are kind to your friends and not your wife. Comibne the two , and that is good.

11.  That the husband should be a reason for his wife to be saved from the hellfire. He should teach her and order her to forbid the evil and enjoy the good. Forbidding her from that which will lead to hell fire.

O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allāh in what He commands them but do what they are commanded.

12. That the man should have some type of jealousy for his wife.

Jealousy of protecting her from evil, not for her to be exposed to strange men , not for her to speak to strange men etc.  but not the abusive jealousy…
