Sisters, You have to answer your Lord about your deeds

You have to answer your Lord about your deeds. You will have to give your own account about your deeds, NOT your husband or father or brother or son.!
Its incumbent upon you to learn and practice Islam, of course along with keeping the home responsibilities.
And its the responsibility of men in the given family to educate women about Islam…
and if they by themselves cant do it, then let her get islamic education through duroos and khutbahs in Masjids..
For if you keep them away from Islam, they will be the cause of you and them going togather in hell !
Check this narration of imam qurtubi…
Imam Al Qurtubi’s tafsir about women..
“Women will be few among the inhabitants of Paradise because in most cases they prefer the immediate pleasures of this life, as they are less wise and unable to keep the Hereafter in mind.
They are too weak to strive and prepare themselves for it, and are more inclined towards this world. In spite of all this, they are the strongest factor in this world that distracts men from the Hereafter, because men are inclined to desire them and they are not concerned with the Hereafter.
They are quick to follow those who call them to deviate from Islaam, and reluctant to follow those pious people who call them to the Hereafter, and righteous deeds”.
(al-Qurtubee, at-Tadhkirah, 1/369)

Watching pornography is forbidden


It is not permissible to watch pornography at all, not even with one’s wife.

Pornography is prohibited in islam. How big a sin is “watching” pornographic material with your wife once in a while?

Watching pornography is forbidden, whether a person is married or not. The one who does that has to repent to Allaah. How can a person watch such things with his wife and he can he permit her to watch it too?

Women are weak and are easily influenced; indeed watching such things may lead to problems between the spouses which may end up in divorce – Allaah forbid.

Undoubtedly if a man approves of such a thing he is lacking in gheerah (protective jealousy), which is what distinguishes a Muslim from others, from kaafirs and duyooths (cuckolds) who approve of obscenity and immorality in their families.

Moreover, watching such material makes one take the matter of immorality lightly and encourages promiscuity.

We ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound. 

  • Let the one who has committed such a sin beware of the punishment of Allaah; let him hasten to repent. 
  • He should be keen to look for anything that may help his wife to remain chaste, not for things that will encourage immoral actions. And Allaah knows best.

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

May You All Be Honeyed By Allāh

May You All Be Honeyed By Allāh !!
عسلكم الله جميعاً

قال رسول اللهﷺ : إذا أحب اللّه عبداً عسله ، قالوا : ما عسله؟ قال : يفتح الله عز وجل له عملاً صالحاً قبل موته ثم يقبضه عليه.

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “If Allāh loves a person, he is honeyed by Him, they asked: ‘What is honeying him (means)?’, he said: “Allāh opens for him (the door of) a righteous deed before his death, then keeps him firm on it (until his death).”

● [ رواه أحمد ١٧٨١٩]

قال العلامة الألباني رحمه الله : وأمارة هذا التعسيل بأن يرضى عنه من حوله لما ثبت في زيادة مرفوعة للنبي صلى اللّه عليه وسلم : (.. حتى يرضى عنه من حوله) ، يقال بأن الشيخ الألباني رحمه الله يدعوا لمن صنع إليه معروفا بقوله: ( عسّلك الله ).

al-‘Allāmah al-Albāni Raḥimahullāh said: “And the sign of this honeying is that everyone around him become pleased with him as is proven in addition from Prophet ﷺ saying in Marfū’ form: ’.. until (everyone) from around him are pleased with him.’ • [الصحيحة ١١١٤],

It is said that Sh. al-Albānī (Allāh have mercy upon him) used to supplicate for the one who did a favor to him by saying: ‘May you be honeyed by Allāh’.”

Self Care

Self care ❤
Sometimes self care is getting up, making wudu, and praying two rakahs. Even if I don’t feel what I want to while doing it.
Sometimes self care is replying to the messages from people who care about me and genuinely want well for me. It’s going through with plans I said I would.
Sometimes self care is eating a proper breakfast and forcing myself to eat lunch because it might help to bring my appetite back.
Sometimes self care is opening the Quran and starting from the beginning all over. Going over His words for some ease and comfort.
Sometimes self care is laying my head on mom’s lap because it’s been a while since we actually talked.
Sometimes self care is giving my sisters the time of me they deserve with patience because I haven’t done that in a while.
Sometimes self care is trying for at least one day to not push people away. Instead bring them closer to me like they try because a day turns into a week.
Sometimes self care is cleaning even though I’m always organized.
Sometimes self care is doing what I’ve already been, being everybody’s go to person.
Sometimes self care is saying Alhamdulilah because I got this far. Sometimes self care is finding so much to be thankful for because it helps get through the day.
Sometimes self care is opening up the Quran and reading that ayah that I always tell others not to forget, forgetting it applies to me too. With hardship comes ease.
Sometimes self care is putting my headphones in and falling asleep to Quran like I used to when I was twelve. Sometimes self care is taking a deep breath and praying two rakahs before I go to bed.

People can have a kunya such as Abu …. Or Umm… Without having children

People can have a kunya such as Abu …. Or Umm… Without having children
Narrated ‘Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
Aisha said: Messenger of Allah! All my fellow-wives have kunyahs?
He said: Give yourself the kunyah by Abdullah, your son – that is to say, her nephew (her sister’s son). Musaddad said: Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr. She was called by the kunyah Umm Abdullah.
Abu Dawud said: Qurran b. Tammam and Ma’mar all have transmitted it from Hisham in a similar manner. It has also been transmitted by Abu Usamah from Hisham, from ‘Abbad b. Hamzah. Similarly, Hammad b. Salamah and Maslamah b. Qa’nab have narrated it from Hisham, like the tradition transmitted by Abu Usamah.
Sunan Abu Dawood, General Behavior (Kitab Al-Adab)
Book 43, Hadith 198
