Anas (رضي الله عنه) reported that the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ had a Persian neighbour who could prepare a good soup. One day he cooked soup for the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ and came to him to invite him. The Messenger of Allāh asked: ‘And is ʿĀʾishah invited too?’ He replied; ‘No’. So the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: ‘No, (in declining the invitation)’. The neighbour returned once more and invited him again, and the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ asked; ‘Is ʿĀʾishah invited too?’ He replied; ‘No’, and so the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said; ‘No (in declining the invitation)’. He returned a third time to invite him and Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ again asked: ‘And is ʿĀʾishah invited too?’ the neighbour replied; ‘Yes’, so the Prophet and ʿĀʾishah made their…

AL-BIRR is to plan a surprise UMRAH or HAJJ trip for your parents and arranging for them a nice hotel which they deserve!
What is Al BIRR to PARENTS (being DUTIFUL to parent)
DON’T THINK that by simply KISSING the forehead or hands, or even the feet of your parents, that you have attained their ultimate pleasure..
AL-BIRR is to RECOGNIZE what is in the HEART of your PARENTS and ACT upon it without waiting for an instruction.
AL-BIRR is KNOWING what makes them HAPPY, then racing towards DOING it; and understanding what HURTS them, then striving that they don’t ever see it from you!
AL-BIRR could be in something that you feel your parents DESIRE, and you BRING it to them, even a cup of tea..
AL-BIRR is that you ensure the comfort of your parents, even at the cost of your own happiness; so if you staying out late will cause them worry and stress, then you sleeping early is part of your birr (kindness) towards them.
AL-BIRR is that you…

Making mistakes and falling short are undoubtedly part of human nature and no one will be free of shortcomings in his obedience to Allaah, or free of mistakes or forgetfulness or sins.
All of us fall short, commit sins, and make mistakes. Sometimes we turn to Allaah and sometimes we turn away from Him.
Sometimes we remember that Allaah is watching and sometimes we become negligent. None of us is free of sin, and we will inevitably make mistakes.
A Muslim’s faith may become weak and he may be overwhelmed by his desires.
The Shaytaan may make sin…

The following is one of Imaam Sufyaan’s letters:
My brother, use the time you have between dawn and sunrise to contemplate the previous day: Remain steadfast on the good deeds you performed the previous day, and abandon anything you did out of disobedience to Allaah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala). Do not repeat the same mistakes, for you do not know whether or not you will live for the rest of your day!
As long as you are alive, the option of repentance is available to you, but refraining from sinning is easier for you than trying to perform a sincere repentance. A sincere repentance involves regret and a firm resolve never to repeat the same sin again.
Wherever you are, fear Allaah. If you perpetrated a sin in secret, then repent to Allaah in secret. And if you perpetrated a sin out in the open, then repent to Allaah out in…

The Ruling in Divulging Marital Secrets – Shaykh Uthaymeen
Some women are overcome by the urge to communicate what is said in the house and their marital life to their relatives and friends. Some of what is said is secret, and the husband does not want anyone else to know it. What is the ruling on women who divulge these secrets and communicate them to those outside the house, or to some members of the household?
The practice, as some women do, of communicating what is said in the house, and communicating details about their marital life to relatives and friends, is a forbidden thing. It is not permissible for a woman to divulge the secrets of her house or her affairs with her husband to any person. Allaah, The Most High says:
“Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allaah and to their husbands), and guard…
