In the light of Quran and Sunnah, husband and wife initiate a family. Therefore, it is essential that they develop an understanding of each other’s personality, and respect the informal guidelines governing their bond. This, in addition to mutual acceptance, unburdened by irrational expectations and demands, can lead to a blissful life. If Allah bestows this grace, then there are certain legal obligations as well. Both husband and wife are to be a source of satisfaction to each other. In addition, the man is responsible for the material sustenance of the family.
Huquq Ul Ibad (Rights of Man on Man)
A miser is someone who hoards his money in an attempt to save it from being used up over basic necessities and comforts. Greed is deeply rooted in his conscience, abstaining him from spending it on the needy and deserving. Thanking his Provider or being grateful to Him for the worldly possessions doesn’t cross his mind, and he becomes obsessed with filling up his bank accounts.
In these COVID hit times, each and every one of us has been affected somehow and many are going through some rather testing times. Accepting all the challenges, difficulties, with a strong belief in Allah’s mercy, and plus, knowing in your heart that, indeed, the creators of the heaven and the earth is surely supporting us and has our back. Ultimately, every storm shall pass.
We should keep our eyes and ears open for signs of depression or anxiety in our circle of family and friends. We know that some people might be going through horrible situations in their life and are scared to share with others for their safety. Being of help to those in need will heal this world of the sorrows and darkness, turning it into a place of peace and harmony. Playing our role as a sensible fellow citizen might help in bringing positive impact to our communities.
In Muslims, we witness that people belonging to a certain sect would consider in their hearts that the other person, of a different sect is not going to please Allah with any of his/her deeds. At extremes, even considering someone a non-believer, God forbid. We are all Muslims, and in no way can we put a stamp of a believer / non-believer as a result of the sect one belongs to.
True Islam believes in diversity, equality, brotherhood, and has no room for racism or bias on the basis of color, gender, ethnicity or background etc. Islam is a religion of peace and is a blessing for all mankind, allowing them to see hope at the end of a dark tunnel of suppression, injustice and hatred, maintaining an equilibrium of sanity and composure.
