Do you wish to have such wealth which can never be stolen by thugs and thieves, guarantees peace, secures happiness, protects from misery and mental turmoil… and even saves one from many serious sins? Yes indeed, every sane person wants such wealth, and to acquire it is very simple — BE CONTENT. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has clearly declared, “Verily true wealth is the wealth of the heart (contentment).” (Saheeh Bukhaari #6446)

The greatness, excellence, brilliance and magnitude of the noble attribute of contentment can be clearly understood from the practice of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma). On the advice of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), during the great ‘ibaadat of tawaaf of the Ka’bah Shareef, he would make the following du‘aa between the Rukn-e-Yamaani and Hajr Aswad: “O Allah! Bless me with contentment in that which you have given me!”. (Mustadrak Haakim #1674) Subhaanallah! The greatest Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) advising that in the greatest of places one should keep begging Allah Ta‘ala for such an immensely great wealth… the lesson is for his Ummah to acquire this true wealth and enjoy its benefit.

Special Gift

Gifting is not only an expression of love – it is a means of creating and enhancing love. When a person gives a gift, his simple gesture conveys the sentiments of appreciating and honouring the one who is receiving the gift. Hence, when one receives a gift, the love for the one giving the gift is automatically enhanced as one values the sentiment and effort behind the gift.

Just as people give gifts to one another during their lifetime, it is possible to give a ‘gift’ to a person after his demise as well – through conveying the reward of a good deed to the person.

Since the occasion of qurbaani has once again arrived, it is the ideal opportunity, for those who have the means, to carry out nafl qurbaani and convey the reward to their deceased parents, spouse, siblings, asaatizah, etc.

It has been narrated from Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that he would slaughter two rams (on the occasion of qurbaani); one for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the other for himself. When he was asked the reason for doing this, he replied, “He (i.e. Nabi [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam]) instructed me to do this, so I will never leave it.” (Sunan Tirmizi #1495)

Q&A: Instagram Influencer

Q: I am a Muslimah who has a large circle of friends. Since I am a quite popular and sociable person, I have been considering joining Instagram. Through daily posts about the things that I do or by sharing my daily experiences with people, I will get many followers and will become an ‘Influencer’ . This has the potential to become a profitable business venture through adverts which I will post to my followers. Your Islamic advice and guidance on this proposal is most appreciated (question summarized).

A: You have asked for Islamic guidance and advice on the matter. We commend you upon this. A Muslim’s primary and greatest concern is that Allah Ta‘ala must be pleased with him. In order to ensure that one is on the path of earning Allah Ta‘ala’s pleasure, and not incurring His displeasure, one should always first seek Islamic guidance from authentic and experienced ‘Ulama who will guide one in light of the Quraan and sunnah. Doing “one’s own thing” without taking Islamic guidance could lead to major problems – in this world and especially on the Day of Judgement.

It is related from Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “No days are as weighty with Allah Ta‘ala and so liked by Him  for good deeds than the first ten days of Zul Hijjah. Therefore in these days excessively read tasbeeh (subahanallah), tahleel (la ilaaha illlallah), tahmeed (alhamdulillah) and takbeer (Allahu akbar). (Majma‘uz Zawaaid #5990)

WiFi… GPRS… 3G, 4G and 5G… Satellite… ADSL and fibre… In short, we live in a world of ever-increasing connectivity. No matter where they may be, or what time of the day or night it may be, people ensure that they always remain connected and online.

In an age where most business is conducted over the phone, it is easy to understand why some people fear losing their connectivity. For such people, the loss of connectivity could lead to a lucrative deal being lost and precious profit slipping through their fingers. Hence, even if they have the slightest expectation of someone phoning them with a deal, they will ensure that their phone batteries are fully charged and they are in an area with full reception. They know that so long as they are connected, they will continue to benefit from every opportunity that presents itself before them.

Q&A: Barakah in Marriage

PrintE-mail

Tuesday, 06 August 2019 09:08

Q: My daughter is getting married in a few month’s time. My wife and I are at loggerheads over the expenses. The cost for the decor, flower arrangements, etc. is close to almost a million. She insists that our daughter deserves to have a special wedding. Please advise what I can do to make her understand that this is gross extravagance and wastage.

A: The masnoon du‘aa (du‘aa established from the sunnah) for the newlywed couple is: “May Allah Ta‘ala grant you barakah, may He shower His blessings (barakah) upon you and unite both of you upon good”.

This du‘aa is a plea for barakah for the couple embarking on their new journey in life. The road of marriage is long (it is meant to continue till the last breath), the challenges are many and the twists and turns are plenty. Hence, they need every bit of barakah that they can acquire. Therefore this special du‘aa is made for them on the special occasion of their nikaah.
