Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home — the very statement sounds so sweet. One can well imagine what is the actual sweetness of a real home. Indeed, even if a little hut is truly a home, its “sweetness” surpasses the “sweetness” of all the wealth in the world. On the contrary, if it is only a house — merely a physical structure — then the most palatial and exquisite dwelling with state-of-the-art amenities will also be devoid of any sweetness. It will be a bitter place and, despite every comfort and luxury therein, it could become among the most agonising places to be in.

A home is a place of peace and tranquillity, of warmth and affection, a place where despite day-to-day challenges the hearts are bonded, where people care for each other, consider others before themselves and live with mutual respect. Such a place becomes a very sweet home even if it is bare of any luxuries.

Q: Every year, my parents take us overseas for the holidays. I know they wish well and want us to have a nice time. The problem is that the resorts and places that we visit are full of sin. Whether it’s the beach, malls or any other place, it becomes extremely difficult for me to avoid the music, control my gaze, etc. My uncle’s family also comes with us. His daughters don’t observe purdah and expect me to speak to them. During these holidays, my Imaan becomes very weak and I become prone to many major sins. My parents are insisting that I have to go along. What should I do?

Letter:

Bismihi Ta‘ala

Respected Mufti Saheb

As salaamu ‘alaikum

Each day Shaitaan seems to be overpowering me even more. I have been troubled for one entire year. When I sit to recite the Quraan Majeed or when I commence my salaah, then too Shaitaan overpowers me. If a beautiful woman has to pass, then I cannot help but look at her. I am helpless when it comes to falling into arguments, lies, backbiting and enmity. Due to all these issues, I do not get a peaceful sleep and I am always distressed and troubled. Please show me a remedy through which Allah Ta‘ala will relieve me of my troubles.
