The moment a woman’s pregnancy is confirmed, she should express her gratitude to Allah Ta’ala, as this is indeed a great bounty of Allah Ta’ala. She should cast aside sorrows and she should try and stay happy at all times. The expectant mother should protect herself from daily disputes with the mother-in-law and sister-in-law or other members of the family. Her relationship with her husband should be one of obedience.

 She should maintain friendly and trouble free relationships with all. If she hurts someone, she should immediately apologize and forget about the dispute. She cannot afford to hold back a grudge or an ill feeling, as the evil effect of this will fall on the child she is carrying. As a true expression of gratitude to Allah Ta’ala, she should  stay away from all sin, such as the sin of not covering  herself with a veil, watching television, neglecting her salaah, living to show others, etc. Her entire life must become one of obedience and gratitude to Allah Ta’ala.

Happy couples make happy homes. Happy homes produce happy children. Happy children in turn form happy communities. Happy communities make the world a better place to stay  in.   Everything starts off with us as a couple. We are the foundation of the home. If we allow the home to be disciplined then the community will be disciplined. If our domestic life is in  order then our life outside the home will also be in order. Children’s minds are very delicate and sensitive. They very quickly sense any form of tension that may exist between us as  parents. As adults daily we may fight and argue, forgive and forget, and our lives continue as normal. However when it comes to children, any form of abuse that takes place in their presence, has a major negative impact on their minds and life as a whole. Thus as parents it is important that we maintain a happy and friendly environment within our home.

In the present era of trials and tribulations, with evil and fitnah surrounding us in every direction, there is no better sanctuary for a Muslim/Muslimah than his/her home. 

Once a Sahaabi asked Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallm) for the key to success? Among other advices Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallm) said: “Let your home be sufficient for you” (Tirmizi #2406). As far as possible one should remain in the home. Allah Ta’ala has referred to the home of a person as a place of sukoon (peace).

Since the home of a believer is his/her sanctuary and a place of peace, there ought to be certain rules and regulations governing the home. Without any rules and a system, there will be chaos in the home.

The following are some of the rules that should be adhered to by every Muslim/Muslimah in his/her home. 

First rule

Cleanliness and purification

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallm) said: “Allah Ta’ala is pure and loves purity, He is clean and loves cleanliness, He is generous and likes generosity, He is hospitable and loves hospitality, so clean your courtyards and do not resemble the Jews” (Tirmizi #2799).
