Happily Ever After!


Thursday, 27 June 2013 09:04

A successful marriage lasts happily ever after. It thrives on correct behaviour and ethical conduct. This in turn is influenced by correct thinking. Therefore correct thinking and attitude play a big role in preparing for the big day and the new life ahead. The lives of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were a perfect example of correct thought and an Islamic mindset.  

There lived a man by the name of Julaibeeb (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). He was an ordinary man by worldly standards. He was not endowed with the charm and allure that other men had, nor did he hold the social standing that the noble would enjoy. But … he was a man of Imaan and a Companion of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). This was an attribute that far superseded any worldly disadvantage.

Too many Cooks Spoil the Broth!


Thursday, 27 June 2013 11:41

Ever wondered what in the world that meant? Especially when you walk into a world class buffet and take in the spread of food. Hot and cold cereals and porridges, freshly baked rolls and breads of countless varieties stacked neatly in wicker baskets, pastries, crepes, crumpets, pancakes and waffles artistically piled up with every accompaniment you could imagine: cream, cinnamon sugar, honey, syrups, jams, pastes and spreads. The ice layer at the end of the room invites you to freshly squeezed juices and “smoothies” whizzed in front of you in flavours and varieties you may never have heard of (cucumber and mint, pear and banana, pineapple and black grape ...). 

As though cleverly designed, unsuspectingly the aroma of freshly ground coffee of the finest Arabica and Robusta blend pulls and lugs you to the tea and coffee station where international varieties introduce themselves to you for the first time.

Addressing the Problems in Marriage

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)


Respected Moulana

My marriage is in problems for a while now. My husband comes home late and wants to be by himself. We have had no family life for the last three years and everything revolves around him. I know he is talking to other women and I have grown to accept it. I just want this marriage to work. Please inform me as to what I may read to create love in his heart so he may want to come home and spend time with me and my children.

Maalik bin Dinaar (r.a.)’s Repentance on 15th Sha’baan


Saturday, 22 June 2013 08:49

Maalik bin Dinaar (rahimahullah) was one of the renowned pious men of his time. In his early life, he was not a pious man, and when someone asked him how he came to repent of his sins and abandon his evil ways, he related the following story about himself:

I was a policeman in my youth, and was addicted to wine. I drank day and night and led a care-free life. I bought a beautiful slave girl whom I loved most dearly. I had a daughter from her, and I was very fond of her. When this baby daughter began to walk and talk, I loved her all the more and she was very fond of me as well. The innocent child had a strange habit. Whenever she saw a glass of wine in my hand, she would snatch it away and spill it on my clothes. Being fond of her, I did not scold her. As fate would have it, my innocent child died when she was two years old and I was stunned with shock and heart-sore.
