As discussed previously, when the need arises for a Muslim woman to emerge from her home, she should do so with complete hayaa, where she is most concealed and attracts the least amount of attention to herself. However, we should bear in mind that there are different avenues of attraction and ways through which attention can be drawn to a woman.

One avenue, of which we are all aware, is that of clothing. Insha-Allah, a separate article will soon be prepared to address this topic. Nevertheless, two pertinent avenues of attraction and attention are:

- Perfume – how often does it not happen that a person’s fragrance is perceived before the person is even heard or seen? Hence, perfume is indeed a potent way for one to draw attention to himself or herself – especially as perfumes are designed to arouse feelings of attraction in a person. Thus, it is impermissible for a woman to apply any perfume or fragrance when leaving the home.

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I am caught up in major debts. I have a weakness of purchasing on credit, thinking I can cover my expenses in the months which are interest-free. However, I am now in debts, ‘over my head’ and don’t know how to come out. Is there any wazeefah (du‘aa) which I can read?

Brother Involved in Sin

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I cannot take my brother’s behaviour any more. He listens to music, sings, dances, watches TV, has a two-length haircut, shaves his beard, misses most of his salaah, smokes and swears. Every time he does any of the above in front of me, I make du‘aa for him. I keep making du‘aa that Allah Ta‘ala send me a pious husband as soon as possible so I can move away from all this disobedience of Allah Ta‘ala.

Alhamdulillah, Allah Ta‘ala guided me at a young age and made all of the above very hated to me, and it hurts me to know that my own brother finds happiness in it. What advice does Moulana have for me?

Laziness in Performing Salaah and Qadhaa

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Before Allah Ta‘ala blessed me to change my life, I missed a lot of salaah. Now, I have the burden of many years’ qadhaa salaah to make up. At the same time, I do sometimes miss a salaah now and again. I am struggling. I try to read one qadhaa after each daily salaah, but my time is always short and I have work to do, or need to see what my parents require, so I leave out the qadhaa.

I am so ashamed that my salaah is in such a condition. I know that there is no excuse for salaah, yet sometimes, I have no worry or concern, and I don’t understand how that happens. I have left so many sins due to Allah’s grace and mercy, and I leave out what is doubtful, and I do my best regarding Deen. Due to my salaah problem, I feel like a hypocrite – but that still doesn’t prompt me to fix my salaah and qadhaa. Please advise me.

True Hijaab and Niqaab​

There was once a person who possessed a rare, exquisite piece of jewellery, studded with the finest of gemstones. Since he knew the value of the jewellery, and realised that there would be many unscrupulous individuals who would relish the chance to steal it from him, he ensured that he always kept it stored safely in a vault. On the odd occasion when he was forced to remove it from the vault, he employed guards and utilised every security measure imaginable to secure it from theft. However, in the back of his mind, he always acknowledged the stark reality – so long as it was out of the vault, it was at risk of being stolen, EVEN THOUGH he employed the best of guards and security. It was only within the recesses of the vault that his prized jewellery was truly secure. Hence, he knew, within his heart, that as far as possible, his jewellery would have to remain in the vault.

Since we all live in an age of insecurity, where burglaries and other forms of theft are rife and rampant, we can all relate to the example above. However, there is another example which is even more relevant than the one above – the example of the most valuable of all gems – the example of a Muslim woman. A Muslim woman and her hayaa are more valuable and precious than any gem or jewellery. Hence, just as jewellery remains in a vault for the sake of security, a Muslim woman is required to remain in the recesses of her home where her hayaa and imaan will remain safe and protected.
