Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, divorce seems to be on the rise for people everywhere. In Islaam this should be the last resort to ending a marriage. A couple should do all that they can to make the marriage work especially if there are children involved, unless the situation is dangerous or doesn’t permit it.

In Islaam if one should get divorced they should do so with the best manners, respect and dignity, as this is what the Prophet (Sallahe Alhee Wa Sallam) has taught us.

Lastly, once the divorce has taken place the man whom the woman divorced becomes a Non-Mahram, and vice versa. They are not to be alone anymore, they are not to joke around like before, etc. They are to be respectful and to stay away from each other.

The family of the one who has gone through the divorce should treat the woman or man who has been divorced from their family with respect but stay away from them. When the family of the woman talks to the man whom she has divorced or vice versa, it hurts the other person. We need to stay away from hurting others. Feelings and emotions are important to notice and to understand in Islaam. If we don’t care about how we make others feel, then Allaah may punish us, our kids or even grandkids in the way we punished others. Subhana’Allaah, we should always be aware of what we are doing and know that today we are doing it, tomorrow it may happen to us. So if you don’t want it to happen to you, then don’t do it to others.

May Allaah guide us all to goodness and make us amongst the righteous. Ameen. May He make our eman strong and help us do the right thing when circumstances expect it. Ameen.

a sister beginning her journey with hijab

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, it always excites me to hear about a sister beginning her journey with hijab.

Just to note for many sisters who aren’t aware of what proper hijab is, it’s the covering of the entire hair, neck, and chest. Hijab means wearing lose clothing so that your body shape is not visible.

Truly it is a test when we decide to put it on. For any sisters who want to wear it mentally prepare yourself for the test. People will make fun of you, they will joke about your past, they will tell you it doesn’t look good on you, and it is better to take it off. Know that all of their comments are from Shaytaan. Shaytaan will do whatever he can to make you remove it. However, we must be strong. We must remember Allaah is testing us to see if we are truly sincere in wearing the hijab or if we are just doing it for show and tell.

If we are sincere then in’sha’Allaah we will be patient when the test comes, and make massive du’aa to get through it. We will find new friends to be with who will support us, and not put us down.

And if our jobs make it tough for us, then we will look for better positions who will respect us as women and not as objects. Who will respect us for who we are and not what we look like. Who will respect us for our talent and not what our hair or body looks like.

Allaah tell us in the Qur’aan: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allaah do hearts find rest” (The Qur’aan Chapter 13: Verse 28)

Ya Allaah may you make it easy on all of the sisters who are coming to this path and journey for your sake only. Ameen. May you give them strength, patience and perseverance to keep it on for you alone. Ameen. May you make them a light, noor of who represent Islaam. Ameen! May you give them the best character and manners, and make them amongst the righteous whom you love. Ameen!!!

life isn’t about preaching life is about teaching with our actions

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, life isn’t about preaching life is about teaching with our actions…when we do what we want others to do then in’sha’Allaah we will be successful.

Truly there is no price on righteousness. Weather your rich or poor, you understand it. Weather your educated or ignorant you understand it. Weather your a child or an adult you understand it…..the problem is doing what is right and staying away from what is wrong…

One character that the majority of us need to work on is Not Lying anymore. We need to quit lying to our spouses, our parents, our children, our bosses, our friends, and family. We need to tell the truth even if it may be against us. Only then will we be successful…Ya Rabbe may you make us amongst the truthful! Ameen. Ya Rabbe may you make us amongst the Righteous! Ameen.
