Q&A

Was Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) a “Working Woman”?

Last Updated on Monday, 04 February 2019 16:30

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I shared this article on your website, regarding women working, with some of my friends.

Someone then mentioned that since Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a merchant and used to work, it should be fine for Muslim women to work as well.

What is the correct answer to this?

Jazakallah

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

We have WhatsApp groups to inform sisters in our area of upcoming events, advertise home businesses, etc.

Recently, differing views are being posted on these groups with regards to women in masaajid, shiasm in South Africa, following a mazhab, haidh masaa-iI, etc.

Should we respond to these messages or should we remain silent and ignore them? If we should respond, how should this be done? Should we address the person privately or should we address them on the group?

Jazakallah

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have recently developed an addiction to watching videos on YouTube. I know it’s wrong and most of the videos contain music as well as pictures of men which is zina of the eyes.

I know that if I continue watching, it is going to slowly strip away my modesty and further weaken my already weak imaan.

I feel very guilty after watching the videos and it disturbs be greatly. I have made istighfaar and tried to stop it, but due to my weakened state, I keep going back.

Please give me some advice as to what I could do to stop for good.

Jazakallah

Taking Guidance from One’s Parents in Choosing a Spouse

PDFPrintE-mail

Last Updated on Saturday, 20 October 2018 16:24

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have been trying to convince my parents to get me married to a certain boy that I have known since childhood as we both like each other and would like to get married. However, my parents are very judgemental and seem to hate him because he is not from a high-status family.

They do not want to listen to me or any of the ‘Ulama that we have spoken to regarding this marriage. I was even told that I would never get married to him – even if it means staying unmarried for my entire life! I have received proposals from other boys, but I am simply not interested in anyone else.

Please help me and tell me what I can do.

Jazakallah
