When realisations hit you too late...

They got married after a beautiful love story, and after two weeks the husband woke up to go to work. He went to the bathroom to wash his face, and in the mirror he saw his face full of drawings of different colors.

His wife was young, childish, and had an innocent heart. She scribbled on his face as he was sleeping, and she did so with a great love, that they would laugh about it in the morning.

The husband washed his face while upset, and went to the kitchen to drink the coffee which he usually does every morning. He did not find the coffee, and he became more upset, and went to her.

She smiled because she thought he would laugh at her, and say something romantic.

But he slapped her until she fell down, and yelled at her saying: "I did not marry you to play with you, I am a man and not a young child. I married you to start a family to have children, to be a man in the eyes of everyone. Do you want to live a love story of the films and those novels that you read? Wake up, these stories does not make a home, nor provide food, nor raise children. Today I will invite my friends for lunch, I want everything to be ready when I come back. Do you understand?"

He went out and saw himself as the master of the house. He left her broken, crying so hard that she could not breathe well.

She is sick and when she cries she almost breaks out.

Then she hurriedly went to prepare lunch, and tears did not leave her cheeks.

The husband went and told his friend what had happened while laughing:

"They think that marriage is all love and romance. This is how women should be treated, my friend, otherwise she will never learn responsibility. She will not be a good mother. She must know that marriage is not as she sees or reads about it. These are just stories to gain profits. They need to learn that marriage is not a game or a novel."

But fortunately his friend was not like him, he did not let him to finish his conversation, he cut him saying: "What kind of a man are you? Why are you so harsh on your wife? Is this how a good husband is supposed to be? The Messenger of Allah (May Allah's Blessings and Peace be upon him) said: (Be gentle with ladies, they are like glasses.)

You have to deal with them gently and be soft on them, and do not break their hearts. Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him said: (This world is temporary joys, and the best temporary joy of this world is a righteous wife.)

Beware what you mentioned a little while ago about cooking and raising the children. It is not compulsory for her, but being nice to her will make her love you more, and be passion on you, and she will do all these without you telling her. You should know that she is not your maid. Go back to your senses my friend, and repent to Allah. Go back to your wife and honor her and do not make her sad again."

The husband felt sad and regretted what he did.

He then decided to call her to tell her that he had cancelled the lunch invitation of his friends, and to prepare lunch for them alone.

The phone rang but there was no answer.

He went back to the house quickly and rang the bell but no one answered.

He forgot his keys in the morning, because he came out while upset.

Suddenly his phone rang, it was his wife's brother.

His wife called his brother when she felt she was not well, to take her to the hospital.

His wife's brother said to him: "Brother, we are in the hospital."

His voice was full of sadness, which made the husband's heart almost to stop from fear, and the idea that something bad had happened to his wife.

He stopped the Taxi and went to the hospital, and found all her family there.

There was sadness on their faces.

He thought that they would be angry at him, but it seems they did not know what had happened.

He greeted them and waited for the doctor.

After several hours the doctor came out to them head down and told them: "With great sadness and sorrow, May Allah Have Mercy on her, the weakness of her heart came to us late."

Everyone cried, especially  the husband. He regretted and blamed himself.

Her mother washed her and she was buried the same day.

In the evening the husband returned home after taking the keys from the brother of his deceased wife.

He entered the house and found the table covered. He removed the cover and found the best delicious dishes, and saw a paper hanging on the door of the refrigerator.

It was written: 'My love, I am sorry because I wanted you to betray the customs and traditions of your community. I am sorry because I wanted you to get out of this stone heart of a man, and to hear from you some romantic words,  and tell me that you love me. Forgive me because of my childish mind I wanted you to treat me like a child. I hope your friends will like the food, and I promise that I will never make you sad or upset again. I promise you. I love you so much."

He looked at the table and threw the food everywhere, and sat down crying, crying and saying: "What did I do to you my love, I killed you with my cruelty, forgive me?"


These days, we dishonor a man who loves and spoils his wife. We have forgotten that, you are considered a great man if you have mercy on your wife, and it is also a Command of Allah.

Allah Says: {And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.}


Remember your wife is from yourself, when she is happy, you will live a happy life.

Know that building a happy home requires, Patience, Honesty and Love.

Have you ever wondered...



An old man, probably some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the park bench. He didn’t mov ... just sat with his head down staring at his hands. When I sat down beside him, he didn’t acknowledge my presence. The longer I sat, I wondered if he was ok.

Finally, not really wanting to disturb him but wanting to check on him at the same time, I asked him if he was ok. He raised his head and looked at me and smiled. $Yes, I’m fine, thank you for asking", he said in a clear strong voice. 


"I didn’t mean to disturb you….but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were ok", I explained to him. 


"Have you ever looked at your hands", he asked ... "I mean really looked at your hands?"


I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down. No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point he was making.


Then he smiled and related this story:

Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well through out your years.


These hands, though wrinkled, shriveled and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life.


They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor.


They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back.


As a child my mother taught me to hold them in prayer. They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots.


They dried the tears of my children and caressed the love of my life.


They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent.


They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son.

They wrote the letters home and trembled and shook when I buried my parents and spouse. 


Yet, they were strong and sure when I dug my friend out of a foxhole and lifted a plow off of my best friends foot.


They have held children, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn’t understand.


They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body.


They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw. And to this day when not much of anything else of me works real well these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to open in prayer.


These hands are the mark of where I’ve been and the ruggedness of my life.


But more importantly it will be these hands that will receive, The Book ofDeeds. I look, ponder and pray that OUR RIGHT HAND is blessed with the fortune of receiving the trials of this life ... i.e., MY BOOK OF DEEDS with this RIGHT HAND ... (Which will be given to everyone on the Day of Judgment for all their deeds done in this World as a record of all their actions. As for those who will be given the book of deeds in their right hand, they would read it with the expectation of receiving God’s Mercy and they would not be wronged or dealt with unjustly ... they will be given their reward in full (as promised by Allah).


“(And remember) the Day when We shall call together all human beings with their (respective) Imam (their Prophets), or their records of good and bad deeds, or their Books like the Quran, the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (True Bible), etc.) ... So, whosoever is given his record in his right hand, they will read their records, and they will not be dealt with unjustly in the least.” (Qur’an 17:71)


No doubt I will never look at my hands the same again.


I never saw the old man again after I left the park that day but I will never forget him and the words he spoke. 


When my hands are hurt or sore or when I stroke the face of my children and wife, I think of the man in the park.


---SUBHANALLAH ... I won't be looking at my hands in the same way from now on.


 Subhanallah ... makes you think doesn't it...?


I, too, want for All of us to RECEIVE OUR BOOK OF DEEDS IN OUR RIGHT HAND-


In sha Allah let us try and be worthy of it by preparing for it now.


O ALLAH MOST PERFECT & GENEROUS! Make us give shukr (Thanks) for these hands

๐Ÿง•TESTIMONIALS๐Ÿง•


“Muslimah Today is one of the rare Durban events that ladies attend alone and they leave, bonded, as sisters. It is a great start for those who have never attended an event of this calibre, and always on the yearly bucket list for those of us who return year after year. Irrespective of where you are in your life, spiritual or emotional aspirations - Muslimah Today will present you with something to take into your life and enrich it. It is an amazing platform for unity and to grow in sisterhood. Gift yourself something special by attending this year, it will undoubtedly be your first of many to come. Insha'Allah. Wishing the organizers, speakers and all those involved a successful event. They outdo themselves on every level. Hope to see you there!” (Hasina Suliman)


“My eyes were full of tears every time a speaker, spoke - while I videoed or photographed them” (Nabihah Desai-Plaatjes)


“The Muslimah Today conference is the highlight of my calendar. It's time for me to be inspired and meet old friends and make new friends, every moment learning beautiful gems. We are always being introduced to new awesome talented sisters. I cannot put into words how much I look forward for our conference. Love you Fatima for tirelessly striving with Azra and everyone to ensure we are blooming.  Muslimah Today is like Zam Zam to my soul.” (Fahmida Jagot)


“I have attended virtually every single Muslimah Today conference since it was launched and was also invited to speak at one of the sessions. It’s a great networking opportunity, the energy and vibe is awesome and it’s also a safe space for us as Muslimahs to discuss difficult and sensitive issues between us. I always have great conversations with my fellow sisters and catch up with those I have not seen in a while. I highly recommend attending it as it’s a wonderful opportunity to learn and socialise at the same time.”  (Lubna Nadvi)


“Have been to other conferences...Muslimah Today is unique. It’s an authentic, sincere, inspiring, moving space. Keeps it real...and so rewarding.” (Mariam Jhaveri)


“As a young student I look forward to this event every year.  Alhamdulillah, it is such a blessing to be amongst women from different ethnic backgrounds that share a common goal with you and that is to learn, be inspired and motivated. Being a part of this conference is like a little get away from the hassle of life. It's some "me time" to be amongst your sisters, just sit back and relax. Usually people think such conferences are just a money making scheme and is usually boring however I can confidently say that Muslimah Today is NOT one of them. Alhamdulillah the speakers are really interesting.  This is a fantastic initiative, I highly encourage sisters from all walks of life to join us in shaa Allah as well as encourage and bring along the youth as well. It is most definitely an uplifting weekend that will not only touch your heart but your soul as well. Looking forward to seeing some new faces this year.” (Homairah Mohamed)

Food for thought..

❝How strange and foolish is man. He loses his health in gaining wealth. Then, to regain his health he wastes his wealth. He ruins his present while worrying about his future, but weeps in the future by recalling his past. He lives as though death shall never come to him, but dies in a way as if he were never born.❞


― Ali ibn Abi Talib

Gender Equality

The most beautiful answer on GENDER EQUALITY.


Something of topic.

Questioner: Sarah

Reply Date: Apr 24, 2017

Question:


On March 18, 2005 Amina Wadud led the first female-led Jumu`ah Prayer. On that day, women took a huge step towards being more like men. But, did we come closer to actualizing our God-given liberation?


Consultant: Yasmin Mogahed

Answer:


Salam Sarah,


Thank you for your inspiring question!


Well, answering your question, I can say that I don’t think so.


What we so often forget is that God has honored women by giving them value in relation to God—not in relation to men. But as Western feminism erases God from the scene, there is no standard left but men.


As a result, the Western feminist is forced to find her value in relation to a man. And in so doing, she has accepted a faulty assumption. She has accepted that man is the standard, and thus a woman can never be a full human being until she becomes just like a man—the standard.


When a man cut his hair short, she wanted to cut her hair short. When a man joined the army, she wanted to join the army, and so on. She wanted these things for no other reason than because the “standard” had it.


What she didn’t recognize was that God dignifies both men and women in their distinctiveness, not their sameness. And on March 18, Muslim women made the very same mistake.


For 1,400 years, there has been a consensus of scholars that men are to lead prayer. As a Muslim woman, why does this matter? The one who leads prayer is not spiritually superior in any way.


Something is not better just because a man does it. And leading Prayer is not better just because it is leading.


Had it been the role of women or had it been more divine, why wouldn’t the Prophet have asked Lady `A’ishah or Lady Khadijah, or Lady Fatimah—the greatest women of all time—to lead?


These women were promised heaven and yet they never led prayer.


But now, for the first time in 1,400 years, we look at a man leading prayer and we think, “that’s not fair.” We think so, although God has given no special privilege to the one who leads. The imam is no higher in the eyes of God than the one who prays behind him.


On the other hand, only a woman can be a mother. And the Creator has given special privilege to a mother. The Prophet taught us that heaven lies at the feet of mothers. But no matter what a man does, he can never be a mother. So why is that not unfair?


When asked who is most deserving of our kind treatment? The Prophet replied “your mother” three times before saying “your father” only once. Isn’t that sexist? No matter what a man does, he will never be able to have the status of a mother.


And yet even when God honors us with something uniquely feminine, we are too busy trying to find our worth in reference to men, to value it or even notice it. We too have accepted men as the standard; so anything uniquely feminine is, by definition, “inferior”.


Being sensitive is an insult, becoming a mother is a degradation. In the battle between stoic rationality (considered masculine) and selfless compassion (considered feminine), rationality reigns supreme.


As soon as we accept that everything a man has and does is better, all that follows is just a knee jerk reaction: if men have it, we want it too. If men pray in the front rows, we assume this is better, so we want to pray in the front rows too.


If men lead prayer, we assume the imam is closer to God, so we want to lead prayer too.

Somewhere along the line, we’ve accepted the notion that having a position of worldly leadership is some indication of one’s position with God.


A Muslim woman does not need to degrade herself in this way. She has God as a standard. She has God to give her value; she doesn’t need a man here.


In fact, in our crusade to follow men, we, as women, never even stopped to examine the possibility that what we have is better for us. In some cases, we even gave up what was higher only to be like men.


Fifty years ago, we saw men leaving the home to work in factories. We were mothers. And yet, we saw men doing it, so we wanted to do it too. Somehow, we considered it women’s liberation to abandon the raising of another human being in order to work on a machine.

We accepted that working in a factory was superior to raising the foundation of society—just because a man did it.


Then after working, we were expected to be superhuman—the perfect mother, the perfect wife, the perfect homemaker, and have the perfect career. And while there is nothing wrong, by definition, with a woman having a career, we soon came to realize what we had sacrificed by blindly mimicking men.


We watched as our children became strangers, and soon recognized the privilege we’d given up.


And so only now—given the choice—women in the West are choosing to stay home to raise their children. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, only 31 percent of mothers with babies, and 18 percent of mothers with two or more children, are working full time.


And of those working mothers, a survey conducted by Parenting Magazine in 2000, found that 93 percent of them say they would rather be home with their kids, but are compelled to work due to “financial obligations.”


These “obligations” are imposed on women by the gender sameness of the modern West and removed from women by the gender distinctiveness of Islam.


It took women in the West almost a century of experimentation to realize a privilege given to Muslim women 1,400 years ago. Given my privilege as a woman, I only degrade myself by trying to be something I’m not, and in all honesty, don’t want to be—a man.


As women, we will never reach true liberation until we stop trying to mimic men and value the beauty in our own God given distinctiveness.


If given a choice between stoic justice and compassion, I choose compassion. And if given a choice between worldly leadership and heaven at my feet, I choose heaven.


I hope my words answer your question. In case you have any comment or you need more about the topic, please don’t hesitate to contact us again.

Food for thought...

STRONG ADVICE!


A brother visits his sister and asks, 'How do you live in this house? It's so small'. 

The husband returns and finds his wife angry and they argue up to the point that he divorces her. Where did this all start? She was OK up until her brother asked her.


A man asks his friend, 'How much does your boss pay you? He answers' £1000 a month'. £1000 a month?! You deserve more than that! He asks his boss for a raise but refuses so he leaves his work. Now he has no work. How did this happen?


Advice:


Enter people's houses like a blind man and leave like a deaf person. 

You don't know what your everyday questions may do to a household and after you leave, The Devil creeps in and causes all sorts of problems.

Win, win!
