Tilaawah (Reciting) of the Qur’aan

The Meaning of Tilaawah (Reciting) of the Qur’aan

Nine Benefits of Reciting The Quran

“Those to whom We have given the Book recite it as it truly should be recited, they are the ones who (truly) believe in it. And whoever disbelieves in it, then they are the losers.”[1]

“Qataadah said: “They are the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam).”

Umar ibn al-Khattaab (radiallaahu anhu) said: “When he comes across the mentioning of Paradise, he asks Allaah for Paradise and when he comes across the mentioning of the Fire, he seeks refuge in Allaah from the Fire.”

Ibn Mas’ood said: “By Him in Whose Hand is my soul, verily its truthful recitation is that a person treats as lawful what is lawful therein, treats as unlawful what is unlawful therein, that he recites it just as Allaah had revealed it, that he does not give its words other than their proper meanings and does not give an interpretation to any part of it which is not its proper interpretation.”

Al-Hasan al-Basree (rh) said: “They act according to and upon its clear and manifest verses (whose meanings are clear and apparent) and they believe in its allegorical verses (whose meanings are unclear) and they entrust whatever is difficult for them (to know) to its Knower.”

Ibn Abbaas (radiallaahu anhu) said regarding “as it truly should be recited…”: “They follow it as it truly should be followed.[2]” And then he recited the verse: And by the Moon when it follows it (the Sun)[3]. He said: “Follows it.”

Ibn Mas’ood (radiallaahu anhu) said about the same verse: “They follow it as it truly should be followed.”

Umar ibn al-Khattaab (radiallaahu anhu) said: “They are the ones who when they pass by a verse mentioning mercy, they ask for it from Allaah and when they pass by a verse mentioning punishment, they seek refuge from it.”

And His saying: “They are the ones who (truly) believe in it”: is a description of the ones ‘to whom We have given the Book’ and who “..recite it as it (truly) should be recited..”[4]”

So dear reader, the meaning of reciting the Book of Allaah (Tilaawah) is to memorise it, to recite it as it was revealed to the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam), to study it and to follow it, acting upon its clear and explicit verses (following its orders and refraining from its prohibition), to believe in its allegorical verses avoiding false interpretations of such verses and to submit the knowledge of their meanings to their Knower in truth, Allaah the Exalted.

If you do that then you are guaranteed Paradise as Ibn Abbaas (radiallaahu anhu) has said:

“Allaah guarantees the one who reads the Qur’aan and acts upon whatever is contained within it that he will not go astray in this life and will not be wretched in the Hereafter.”


1 Soorah Baqarah 2:121
2 “Yattabi’oonahu haqqa ittibaa’ihi” So the meaning of Tilaawah in this verse as Ibn Abbaas and Ibn Mas’ood explain is Ittibaa’
3 Soorah Shams 91:2

Etiquette of a Righteous Husband :)

assalaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu!

Khutbah from Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin Al-Qasim, Imaam of Masjid An-Nabawee

Whoever comes from a kind and compassionate background will have a tender heart and so such men must bear in mind that their wife is the one who gave birth to his children, takes care of his wealth and maintains his secrets.

So :
- be kind to your wives and
- openly express your joy for smiling livens the heart and
- wipes away hatred and
- praising the wife for her appearance, cooking and
- adornment wins her heart.

Moreover, Islaam has allowed husbands to lie to their wives in order to increase the love between them.

Exchanging gifts is the key to winning a heart and is a reflection of ones love.

- Being easy upon ones wife,
- abandoning ambiguity and
- bad communication and
- arrogance are ways to achieve a lasting happy marital life.

‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, said:

- A man should be like a child with his wife,
- happy and easy going,
- but when he sits with men,
- he should act as they do.”

Be an upright and straightforward man and your wife will thereby also improve and become more righteous, by the will of Allaah;

- do not look at that which is unlawful for you to do so,
- because the evil consequences of this sin will impact upon your house;
- Watching women on satellite television causes ones wife to appear ugly and
- unpleasant, and
- lowers ones rank in her sight,
- which is a reason why hearts become distant and
- love diminishes,
- which in turn causes conflicts to emerge.

Deal with your wife as you would like her to deal with you in all areas, because it is natural that she would like you to be with her as you would like her to be with you, Ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with him, said:

“I like to take care of my appearance for my wife just as I would like her to beautify herself for me.”

Listen to your wife’s criticism with an open mind and heart because the wives of the Prophetsallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, would to discuss his opinions without him becoming angry.

- Also a husband should not take from his wife’s wealth without her permission,
- because it belongs to her;
- treat her kindly and be generous with her and
- do not be stingy;
- remember that your wife likes to talk to you regarding all her affairs,
- so be attentive and listen to her,
- indeed this is a reflection of perfect manners;
- never go home with a gloomy face
- because your children need to clearly see your love and
- sympathy;
- be kind to your children and make them enjoy your presence,
- guidance and instructions and
- always listen to them.

Whenever the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallamwould see Faatimah, may Allaah be pleased with her, he would say

“Welcome, O my daughter!” then he would seat her to his right or left. (Muslim).

Being kind to the members of ones household reflects real manhood, as Al-Baraa’, may Allaah be pleased with him, said:

“I entered upon Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with him, in his house; he saw his daughter ‘Aa’ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, lying down with a fever, so Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with him, kissed her on the cheek and asked:

‘How are you feeling my daughter?’ (Bukhaari).

Helping at home is a sign of ones faithfulness;

‘Aa’ishah may Allaah be pleased with her, was asked what the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam would do while at home, she replied

- He was just like any other human being,
- he would sew his garment,
- milk the sheep and
- serve himself.’ (Ahmad).

Being generous with ones family is the best charity that one can give and time spent with ones friends should not be at the expense of that with ones family, for they are worthier to spend ones time with.

- Never remind your wife with mistakes that she may have made,
- nor hint about her shortcomings;
- conceal your problems from the children
- because it has a negative affect on them and
- reduces the respect they have towards their parents.

Anger is the cause of all disputes, and the relation between a man and his wife is far too valuable to ruin in a moment of anger;

- remain silent whenever you become upset and
- remember that forgiveness is closer to piety and wisdom,

‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, said:

“Women should be kept at home and their anger dealt with by remaining quiet.”

The rights of the wife are great and only a noble man will fully honour his wife and respect her. ‘Aa’ishah may Allaah be pleased with her, said:

“The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam would always mention Khadeejah, and he would always

- slaughter sheep,
- divide them, and
- then distribute it among her friends,

He did this so much that I once said to him: ‘You act as though there are no other women apart from Khadeejah’”

The Manners of the Woman Leaving (exiting) the home


The Manners of the Woman Leaving (exiting) the home <3

By Umm ‘Abdillah Al-Waadi’eeyah
(She is the daughter of our esteemed and beloved Shaykh Muqbil bin Haadee al-Wadee’ (Rahimahullaah – May Allaah have mercy on him)

My Advice to the Women –
The Manners of the Woman Leaving (exiting) the home (house)

The Hijaab – Not using perfume – A light walk, so that the (bing) noise of her shoes is not heard, Allah ta’ala says: “…and let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment.” [Suratun-Noor:31]

And if she walks with her sister and there are some men,
- she does not speak with her companion (i.e. her sister), and
- this does not mean that the woman’s voice is ‘awrah,
- but the men hearing the voice of the woman,
- it is possible that it could lead to fitnah.

That she should ask for permission from her husband if she is married.

- If she is going a distance which is considered travelling,
- she doesn’t exit except with a mahram
- Not mixing with men
- To be endowed with shyness
- To lower her gaze
- Not taking off her clothing in other than her house,
- if she means with that displaying (herself),

verily it comes on the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) that he said,

“any woman who takes off her clothes in other than her husband’s house, verily revealed (unveiled) the sutrah between her and her Lord”

Evil practices that occur during the weddings !

Evil practices that occur during the weddings !

Khutbah from Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin Al-Qasim, Imaam of Masjid An-Nabawee

O Muslims! Gratitude for a favour from Allaah :

- can never be expressed by sinning;
- the wedding night is one of the greatest favours of Allaah
- upon the husband and the wife, and
- it is impossible that ones gratitude to Allaah
- for it is expressed
- by the women being practically nude
- (i.e., wearing clothes that expose too much of the body)
- even if that is only in front of other women,
- for this is a contradiction of chastity and bashfulness.

We must know that women are weak and must be prevented from doing such acts by their guardians.

- Music during weddings is also prohibited,
- except that which Islaam has made permissible,
- such as women beating a tambourine;
- Photography is also prohibited and
- the person doing it is cursed and promised Hell,

as the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, said:

“Every depicter (of animate object) is in Hell.”

It is possible that photographs of women could accidentally get into the hands of those for whom it is not permissible to view, which would lead the marital house being ruined.

Moreover, the scholars of Islaam have ruled that this is forbidden.

Also, accepting an invitation to a wedding which includes prohibitions is not permissible unless one is sure that they can prevent such prohibitions from taking place.

We must also know that excessive expenditure during weddings and flaunting this has

- a very bad effect on the husband and is one of the traps of Satan,
- if only people would spend this money to build a home for the couple or
- pay off the husbands debts,
- then it would be much better for them.

The Honeymoon should be continuous


The Honeymoon should be continuous <3

By Sheikh ibn ‘Uthaymin (rahimahullaah)

Sheikh Uthaymin, may Allah have mercy upon him, said

Some of the people say that it is possible to take from the statement of the messenger of Allah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam,

- “so that you can taste his honey and
- he can taste your honey”,
- that we can take what is called a honeymoon so is this correct?

[Translator’s Footnote: Originally “honeymoon” simply described the period just after the wedding when things are at their sweetest; it is assumed to wane in a month. (Wikipedia)]

Yes this is correct.
- but the honey is not just for a month if you remain with the woman;
- rather the honey will be continuous not just for a month.

As for traveling during this month to lands that are not befitting to be traveled to then this is a waste of money.

And then we hear about some of the people who travel to
- outside countries and
- they go to swimming pools,
- night clubs, and
- theaters, and his wife is uncovered,
- revealing her head,
- chest and arms, and so on and so forth; and
- with Allah refuge is sought.

This only occurs from someone who has changed the favor of Allah into ingratitude;

- rather the reward for this blessing is for the person
- to increase in thanking Allah and
- to live with his family in a good manner.

But what is the ruling on the one who says, ‘instead of this I will go with my wife to umrah, (for the honeymoon)?

We say this is good, but it is not good.

Because it is obvious that the origin of this is taken from the non Muslims;
- we did not know of this during the time of the previous scholars
- or during the time of the pious predecessors and
- none of the people of knowledge spoke about doing this,
- therefore this has been obtained from the non Muslims; this is one angle.

From another angle, I fear that if a long time passes by and the people are making marriage a legitimate reason for making umrah then it will be said, it is the Sunnah for everyone who gets married to make umrah.

Therefore we would have invented for an act of worship, a reason that has not been legislated, and this is a problem.

Because if a long time passes the condition of the people will change and they will forget the beginning.

For this reason we say,
- have the honeymoon in your room,
- in your home and
- make the honeymoon forever not one month; and
- the praises belong to Allah for well-being.
