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.❞

[A Piece of Advice & Admonition For The Women By Shaykh ‘Abdur-Razzāq Ibn ‘Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbād, Page 84 & 85 | Translated By Jameel Finch]

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…


Seek a lof of forgiveness

Who Should Be Your Companion…

Advice of Sufyan Al-Thawree (rahimahullah) to Alee ibn Al-Hasan As-Sulamee:

Your companion should be the one who prevents you from being preoccupied with things of the worldly life that will divert you from Allaah, and one who makes you desire and work for the Hereafter.

Beware of accompanying people who make the dunyah their goal, those who are engrossed in speaking about the worldly life; indeed they will corrupt your religion and your heart.

Remember death much, and seek a lot of forgiveness from what has passed of your sins, and ask Allah for safety for what remains of your life.

●[Hilyatul Awliyaa Vol. 7 Pg. 82]

Eight signs to identify whether you have a pure, sound heart

Eight signs to identify whether you have a pure, sound heart…

1. A person considers himself to be belonging to the next world, not this world. He is a stranger in this world and cannot wait to reach his abode in the Hereafter.

2. He becomes upset with himself anytime he commits a sin until he finally and completely repents to Allah.

3. If he misses his daily recitation of the Qur’ān and dhikr, he is more upset and unhappy than if he had lost his wealth.

4. He finds a pleasure in worshipping Allah that is much greater than any pleasure he finds in eating and drinking.

5. When he begins to pray, all his worries and concerns about the world leave him.

6. His only concern and worries are concerning Allah and acting for the sake of Allah.

7. He is more concerned with and stingy about wasting time than a greedy person is with respect to his wealth.

8. He is more concerned with the correctness of his deed than he is with the performance of the deed itself.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Whoever comes across a person suffering a calamity and says (silently):

الحمد لله الذي عافاني مما ابتلاك به ، وفضلني على كثير ممن خلق تفضيلا

(Alhamdulillaahi-ladhee `aafaanee mimmaa ibtalaaka bih, wa fadh-dhalanee `alaa katheerim mimman khalaqa tafdheelaa)

‘All praise is for Allah Who saved me from that which He tested you with and Who most certainly favored me over much of His creation.’

He will be kept safe from that calamity”

[Sunan al-Tirmidhee (3431, 3432) on the authority of Abu Hurairah and `Umar رضي الله عنهما, and graded as “Hasan li ghairihee” by Shaikh al-Albaanee in al-Saheehah (602)]

To sit in the circles of remembrance, with the teachers and scholars.

Knowledge is not achieved merely through extensive reading or by accumulating books. It is gained by studying with the people of knowledge, it is acquired from the scholars.

Knowledge is achieved, thus, by the scholars passing it on and is not just by collecting books as some people think. Some people today collect books, reading from the books of hadeeth, Jarh and Tadeel (the science of looking into the narrators of hadeeth and criticism),

Tafseer and the likes thereof. They claim that, with that, they have gained knowledge. However, this type of knowledge is not built upon a foundation, nor is it built upon principles, because it is not gained from the people of knowledge.

It is a must, therefore, to sit in the circles of remembrance, with the teachers and scholars it is a must that one is patient upon seeking knowledge.
