Addressing the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), Allah Ta‘ala says: “Know well that the Rasul of Allah Ta‘ala is in your midst (referring to the time when he lived with them). If he (Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) were to obey you in many matters, you would face difficulty (ie. if he had to obey your whims, this would lead to you falling into much difficulty). (Surah Hujuraat, v7)

My husband has many female contacts on Facebook, BBM, and Twitter. He is often on the phone till past mid-night.

Please advise what I should do?

A Good Neighbour

Sulaiman bin Jahm Al-Ansaari (rahimahullah) once offered to sell his house in exchange for a hundred thousand dirhams. When those who were interested approached him, he asked them: “The house is for sale in exchange of a hundred thousand dirhams, but how much will you pay for being the neighbour of Sa'eed bin 'Aas (rahimahullah).” They replied: “Is that something anyone ever “pays a price for?” He said: “Then in that case, call this deal off! By Allah, I can never leave such a neighbour who, whenever he does not see me he enquires about me and whenever he sees me, he is most warm and welcoming towards me. If I leave home for any errand then he takes special care of whatever belongings I’ve left behind. If I am at home then he always makes himself available to assist me. If I have to ask him for anything then he grants it to me most willingly. And when I don’t ask then he approaches me enquiring whether there is anything I need. If any calamity befalls me then he is first to come to my aid.”

When this reached Sa’eed (rahimaullah) he sent a hundred thousand dirhams as a gift to him. (Risaalatul Mustarshideen pg. 197)

Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) used to constantly invite his mother towards the beauty of Islam so that she may also accept it. One day she uttered something against Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) which disturbed him greatly. He went crying to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said to him, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!  Make du‘aa on behalf of my mother that Allah Ta‘ala blesses her with imaan.” Thus Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made the following du‘aa, “O Allah! Guide the mother of Abu Hurairah.” He returned home happily but found the door of the house locked. From outside he heard the dripping of water as if someone was having a bath. When his mother heard the sound of his approach, she asked him to wait. After completing her bath, she opened the door and recited the kalimah. He was so overjoyed that he began crying out of happiness. (Saheeh Muslim #6396)

This is the great benefit of having pious children that they will be the means of our salvation as well. It is our duty to encourage them to acquire the knowledge of deen, and they will become the coolness of our eyes.

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter

(unedited)

Asalamu alaykum wa ra matullahi wabarakatu

My in laws family is very small, just the immediate family so if we have any small family function I find it necessary to invite my husband’s two aunties however my father in law does not agree with me inviting them as there have been past occasions where his (father in laws) sister had not invited them. I have not been brought up that way and family unity is very important to me. My husband himself disagrees with his father on the matter. What is the way forward?
