The Fitnah of the Eyes !

The Fitnah of the Eyes !

This is for all the sisters who post pictures and videos of themselves online in niqāb (with their eyes showing) and refuse to believe that it is Fitnah. The Imām here clearly said it’s fitnah.

So fear Allāh sisters, and remove your niqābi pictures and videos from the internet (that includes your profile picture). You are not spreading goodness, you are only spreading fitnah.

No Muslim woman with an ounce of hayah (modesty & shyness) would be comfortable having pictures and videos of herself (even if she’s in niqāb) spread online for the entire world to see 24/7 – and available for any man in the world to save, download and share with others.

Fear Allāh.

The purpose of your niqāb is to conceal your beauty, take attention away from you and keep you hidden from the eyes of men. When you post pictures and videos of yourself in it – you have defeated its main purpose. You are asking for attention from men when you display pictures and videos of yourself online publicly.

(Also, it’s actually becoming quite popular for women who don’t even regularly wear the niqāb to post pictures and videos of themselves wearing it online, just to get attention & fame. These women are ruining the image of niqāb and Muslim women in general.)

And for the sisters who post pictures & videos of themselves without niqāb or anything besides their eyes showing (face, hands, etc.):

If posting pictures & videos of the eyes are fitnah, then imagine how much fitnah posting pictures & videos of the face, hands and feet are (which are ‘awrah and harām for a Muslim woman to show in the first place)!

You’re getting sin 24/7 every time a man sees your pictures & videos – and those sins increase even more when they share those pictures and videos with other people!

And for the brothers:

If looking at a woman in niqāb is harām, then imagine how much sin you get for looking at a woman’s face?! Some of you guys even think it’s okay to look at a woman just because you’re talking to her & vice versa, which is completely false. Fear Allāh & lower your gaze

And Allāh knows best

So, supplication is the key to all that is good in this life and the Hereafter

❝Women are weak, and they are influenced very quickly. She hears an attractive phrase, beautified speech, tempting words, and statements that she believes are from the angle of advice for her so she is put to trial by all of that.

However, it is upon the woman to be alert and clever, to have in front of her two eyes the fear of her Lord, the remembrance standing in front of Allaah and that Allaah will ask her about what came in His book and the Sunnah of His Prophet (sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

And it is upon her in this situation to be plentiful in supplication and to beseech Allaah to protect her from trials, to cover her body, to grant her safety from her fears, and to protect her with what He protects His righteous slaves.

So, supplication is the key to all that is good in this life and the Hereafter, and along with supplication, she exerts herself in acting out beneficial causes for safety, rescue, escape, and separation from these destructive affairs.❞

Does ur husband not have protective jealousy over you?

Bro, you let your wife dress like that in public? Don’t be a Dayooth protect your queen..

Sisters when ur flouncing about feeling so free and happy and ‘liberated’ because ur husbands allow u to any time leave the house or mix with non mahram men or put ur pictures up on instagram dolling yourself up with a glossy pout And seductive eyes & an improper Hijab which u try to convince your self is ‘Fine’ because of merely covering ur hair with a scarf is enough then ask your self this…..

Does ur husband not have protective jealousy over you???

Does he not mind showing u or letting u talk to his friends and Non mahram relatives???

Does he not mind u leaving ur house without covering properly or having a face full of makeup???

Does he not mind when lewd people stare at you & cook “Biriyani” upon their head???

Does he not care about your honor and dignity???

Does he not mind that thousands of other men can see ur photos on social networking sites by zooming in & out???

If Not then there is a huge problem with his imaan as the obligation of Parda (Hijab) isnt just on ur head, its on your husbands eye too because if he doesnt have protective jealous of you, he is a Dayyooth and prohibited from Jannah.

One who lacks ghayrah; one who does not care if (non mahram) men approach his wife, mother, sister or daughter… He is dayooth.

A dayyooth is prohibited from entering Paradise.

❝Three people will not enter paradise, and Allâh will not look to them on the day of Judgement: The one who is disobedient to his parents, the woman who imitates men and the ad-Dayooth.❞

Ibn al-Qayyîm rahimahullaah said:

❝And the dayyooth (the man with no jealousy over the woman and his family) is the most vile of Allâh’s creation, and Junnah is forbidden for him, (because of his lack of Gharyah-jealousy).A man should be ❝jealous❞ with regard to his wife’s honor and standing.

He should defend her whenever she is slandered or spoken ill of behind her back.

Actually, this is a right of every Muslim in general but a right of the spouse specifically.

So please Akhi, have protective jealousy for your wife & sisters plz guard your modesty.

Success for the woman comes from having Taqwa and good manners

Maryam is the only woman to be mentioned in the glorious Quran by name. She suffices as a female role model for sisters. Let us look at the two main beautiful characteristics of Maryam:

1. A devout worshipper.

2. Chaste and pure

A woman’s worth is by how much she pleases her Creator and how she preserves herself, protects her honour, and safeguards her chastity.

Maryam’s mother wanted her to be a boy so he could serve Bait AlMaqdas. That was a lofty role designated for men only and a girl couldn’t do that role. However, the mother of Maryam was blessed with the best woman to have ever walked the earth.

Sometimes in life, we want the necessary means to be able to reach the best ends. The Creator SWT can bless us with the best results even if the means aren’t present.

Maryam had Isa AS without ever being touched. When the Creator SWT decrees something He says to it Be and it is. Means are only means so don’t rely on them fully or give up when you don’t have them. The Creator SWT can bless you with miracles.

Sisters must take Maryam as their role model and dedicate their time to worshipping their Creator SWT and protecting their private parts and honour. That way all good will come to them. Good isn’t attained by relying fully on men or intermingling with them or competing with them (by entering their fields and doing exactly what they do).

Success for the woman comes from having Taqwa and good manners which entails lowering her gaze from men, avoiding free mixing, and staying at home as the default (only going out in cases of necessity or for a good reason).

The reward for prayer in the home for the woman is greater than the Masjid so why would a woman, want to offer her prayers frequently in the Masjid? The woman is rewarded immensely for looking after the home and children and that is in alignment with her constitution, so why would she want to spend her life outdoors? The woman is rewarded for making her husband happy when he looks at her, for obeying him (not a narcissistic relationship), and for preserving his honour and wealth, so why should she resort to a lifestyle where she can’t do these things, if she wants reward?

Read the story of Maryam and derive the uncountable gems and wisdom from it…


She’s a matured type of sister.

Shaykh Fareed Abdullah said: the Prophet (ﷺ‎‬) said marry al-wadood al-walood.

al-wadood is that type of lady, she causes the atmosphere around you to be perfumed. Because of how good she is in her character.

She makes the dunya pleasant for you. She knows how to get you to smile when you’re down, when things are rough how to rub you on your neck and your shoulders and to speak to you in a way that comforts you.

She’s a matured type of sister.

She knows when to present an issue and when not to.

She says, “Well it’s not the appropriate time, I could see where his head is, let me just leave this all for now.”

Shaykh Fareed Abdullah goes on with this. And it hit home so hard when I heard these words.

Displaying oneself on social network

Instagram and the Vanity of Social Networks

Published on 1 May 2016

A brief reminder from Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī concerning Instagram and the love of displaying oneself on social networks, sinning and showing off one’s sins.

The noble speaker reminds the listeners to remember death: the destroyer of desires.

How lowly is it to not only sin but to show off one’s sins, with no shame, no fear, no realisation of the return to Allāh.…

Keeping a Few Friends

Keeping a Few Friends…

Sufyaan ath-Thawri (may Allah have mercy on him) said that one foolishly compromised one’s religion when one kept too many friends. Having too many acquaintances diverts one from one’s duty towards one’s Lord, for a person who has many friends is always busy socializing with them and fulfilling their rights over him; so he becomes preoccupied with people when he really should be preoccupied with his religious duties. The ill-effects of being too gregarious can last well beyond a social gathering. Sufyaan said, “I might meet a brother and as a result, remain heedless (of what I should be doing) for an entire month.”

A friend, Sufyaan insisted, should be someone who helps one to improve as a Muslim; otherwise he is not worth keeping as a friend. Sufyaan expressed this sentiment when he sad, “If someone is not with you, then he is against you.”

And Yousuf ibn Asbaat reported that he heard Sufyaan ath-Thawri say, “Whenever I spoke contrary to the desires of any man, he, regardless of who he was, would inevitably become furious with me. The people of knowledge and piety have departed.”

Sufyaan once advised someone to test the character of the person he wanted to befriend. Sufyaan said, “Choose whoever you want as your companion. But when you have made your choice, make him angry, and then order someone to go and ask him what he thinks about you-without him knowing that you sent that person.”

Bakr ibn Muhammad Al-‘Aabid related that Sufyaan ath-Thawri once said to him, “Direct me to a man with whom I can keep company.” Sufyaan said, “You are searching for something that cannot be found.”

Khalf ibn Ismaa’eel Al-Barzaanee reported that he heard Sufyaan ath-Thawri said, “Acquaint yourself with fewer people, and as a result, you will backbite less (frequently).”

[Biography of Imam Sufyaan ath-Thawri {Pgs. 148-149}]

Ibn Qudamah al-Maqdisi al-Hanbali rahimahullah said:

“Know that not everyone is suitable to be your friend. You must verify that this potential friend has the necessary characteristics that make friendship with him something to be desired. The one you seek to befriend must have five characteristics:

1) He must be intelligent, as there is no good in befriending an idiot, as he will only harm you when he wants to benefit you. By intelligent, we mean one who understands things as they are, either on his own, or if they are explained to him;

2) He must have good manners, and this is a must. One who is simply intelligent might be overcome by anger or desire, and obey his desire. Thus, there would be no benefit in befriending him;

3) He must not be a open sinner, as such a person would not fear Allāh, and whoever does not fear Allāh cannot be trusted;

4) He must not be an innovator, as his abundance of innovation is feared from befriending him;

5) He should not be eager for the wealth of joys of this life (Dunya).”
