What Women Should Know!

Salam,
Bismillah.

There were some strong reminders in seerah’s class the other day so I thought I’d share them.

Go through the story of Ifk + 1st 10 ayahs of Surah An-Noor before reading on. :p

  • Understand that the most important thing for a woman is her character and her honor. So avoid places which are not only bad but even doubtful.
  • Do not travel alone with a man.
  • Do not go to the doctor’s clinic alone.
  • A man is a man no matter what his age is.
  • No man can be like your father or brother.
  • Labeling someone as your brother and saying this is trust is absolutely wrong. You can’t even trust yourself, how can you trust him?
  • Allah SWT says in the Quran: ” So do not claim yourselves to be pure; He is most knowing of who fears Him.” (53:32).
  • If a man and woman are alone, third between them is Shaitan. Nabi s.a.w said that, how can you deny it?
  • This applies in the virtual world as well, where everything has become what you call ‘personal’. Your laptop, your mobile, your iPad etc. The rules still apply.
  • Don’t even trust your driver. No, not even if he is low in status.
  • Being married and being older does not matter either when it comes to the opposite gender.
  • Be very careful when talking to your jeweler or tailor. Or when you go shopping and want a bargain. Do not sell your eman (faith) for a little money.
  • Avoid laughing loudly even in hijab.
  • You should know the proper way to talk to a man. Because you will have to interact with them living in this world so it’s better if you know the proper way.
  • Women do have sensors. Whenever you sense something be even more cautious.

In short “bachna hai”. How? Sense it yourself.

Remember: Not going into sharr is one thing, do not even go near its path.

Wassalam,
Hajrah. :)

Wanna be wise?

Salam,
Bismillah.

I want to share something which I heard in a Friday sermon sometime ago. It struck me!

We all need wisdom, right? Because wisdom is doing or saying the right thing at the right time with the right words or right actions. We all want that. We all want ourselves to be perfect in every situation.

Well, here’s the key:
He said that wisdom comes from two things.

1. Akhlaas (Purity in your intentions for Allah).
2. Akhlaaq (A good conduct).

See? Adopt these two and you’re on top of the world already! :)

Wassalam,
Hajrah.
