Do Not Oppress your Family, Your Wife or Others – Shaykh ‘Abdul Azīz b. Bāz

Do Not Oppress your Family, Your Wife or Others. – Shaykh ‘Abdul Azīz b. Bāz


Oppression is from the most disgusting, despicable of major sins, it’s evil consequences Allāh (The Glorified) has informed us of in His Tremendous Book:

وَمَن يَظْلِم مِّنكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَابًا كَبِيرًا

And whoever among you does wrong, We shall make him taste a great torment. (Al-Furqān: 19)

And Allāh says:

وَالظَّالِمُونَ مَا لَهُم مِّن وَلِيٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍ

And the Dhālimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) will have neither a Wali (protector) nor a helper. (Ash-Shūra: 8)

Hence, oppression is a great evil and it has evil consequences, the Messenger (sallāhu alayhi wa salam) said:

“Fear oppression for indeed oppression is darkness on the day of resurrection.” (Muslim)

Furthermore, Allāh has said in a Hadīth Qudsī (which is narrated by the Prophet (sallāhu alayhi wa salam)):

“Oh my servant! Indeed I have forbidden oppression upon myself and between you, so do not oppress.” (Muslim)

Therefore, it is obligatory to be cautious of perpetrating oppression to any of the people, whether it be your family, your wife, your brothers, your children, your mother, your father, your neighbours and other than them.

Likewise, do not oppress your employees, give them their wages in full, every month (for e.g.) give him or her their wages.

Give everyone who has a right upon you; your children, your wife and other than them; their rights.

The intent in being cautious regarding oppression of the people is because indeed Allāh has made sacred the blood, honour and wealth of the Muslims.

So, the Muslim takes himself to account and fears his Lord, so do not oppress anyone, not their honour or their wealth, regardless of whether they are close to you or not.

Reflection: A Brother Shares Mother’s Statements, Supplications and Encouragement

*You are all a joy in my life. I love you all and will always see you as my babies, in my eyes lol. I will never forget changing nappies and running around with the daily schedule. But, at the end of the day, no one can take the place of a mum. May your kids look after you the way you guys are looking after me, Ameen

*May Allah’s peace and mercy be upon you and your loved ones. May HE bestow his grace and blessings upon the entire Ummah. May HE give us longevity of life and good health.

Pray all is well. I was shocked when I heard what the terrorists did in London. May Allah protect you all, turn away every evil from your surroundings. Ameen. My salams to all.

*Pray all is well. It seems as if you don’t work full time now? If so, not bad, at least u don’t have to go morning and evening. I know the extra is important, but I use to feel bad when you come home and having to go back in the evenings. It’s not been easy. InshaaAllaah, it will ease when all the elder ones start earning. It seems as if history is repeating itself. I didn’t have many kids, but had a house full of extended family kids to look after and lived with them. Am glad they are all grown-ups and have moved on. The world is temporary. May Allah keep you all safe and well, Ameen.

*May Allah distance you from shame and failure, destroy every evil plan against you and your loved ones, protect you from known and unknown enemies. May Allah support you and your family with His Love, Kindness, Mercy, Blessings & Forgiveness… May you continue to enjoy Allah’s Rahmah, Ni’mah and Protection till yaumul Qiyaamaah.

The Love Between Husband and Wife – By Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah]

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect.” [Soorah Ar-Rum: Ayah: 21]

Imaam as-Saa’di [rahimahullaah]: ”In most cases you will not find love in anyone similar to the love and mercy between a husband and wife.”

Special Thanks to That Special One in The House- [The Selfless Wife and Mother]  

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

After thanking Allaah, then thanks to that special person in the house – she fasts, establishes the five daily prayers and performs other acts of worship; but she also takes great pleasure in preparing the food which everyone is eager to see on the table at the time of Iftaar. She is not our possession; rather she is the one with a more compassionate heart InShaaAllaah- always ready to make everyone happy, even when she is tired. We thank Allaah for granting us the companionship of this special one- the compassionate wife and mother of the household. She is a treasure and a beloved one, within and outside the month of Ramadhaan. It is a great pleasure to know that we are sharing our lives with this person- one of the most selfless people we have ever met. May Allaah grant her abundant good in this life and the next…Aameen

Listen Here: https://t.co/lWSSwhn4n8 : Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq Al-Badr speaks about appreciating the efforts of our wives in the house: [One Day, Man Did Household Chores & Really Appreciated Wife’s Daily Efforts]

Husband & Wife Thank One Another For Their Efforts!

Husband says:

Indeed, after thanking Allaah [The Most High], I then thank you for the great services you have offered this family for many years. Two weeks ago, after you toiled all day to look after me, my guests and my children, I said to you, ‘’You have been going up and down all day’’ and your reply was, ‘’I thank Allaah for granting me the Tawfeeq to look after my family’’. By Allaah! This brought great joy to my heart and tears to my eyes. And here you are again during this month of Ramadhaan fulfilling many tasks in the household without complaint.

I ask Allaah [The Most High] that He never makes me take you for granted. I greatly appreciate your efforts, kindness, love and compassion. I greatly appreciate your support throughout these years- in times of ease and hardship, illness and good health. I ask Allaah [The Most High] to forgive me if I have ever undervalued your efforts, for I have never looked around the house but only found my children happy, loved and cared for by a mother who takes great pride in looking after her family. I ask Allaah [The Most High] to grant you abundant good in this Dunyah and the Aakhirah. I ask Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] to unite our hearts upon everything pleasing to Him and to increase the love and compassion between us and our children. Aameen.

Wife says:

All praise is due to Allaah for everything He has given me. You are a selfless husband who takes great care of us by the Tawfeeq of Allaah. I cannot thank Allaah enough for granting me such a loyal and sincere friend – a husband who always puts me first and always advises me with good InshaaAllaah. I am behind you as we continue to strive to obey Allaah and His Messenger until death separates us InShaaAllaah. You’re not only a husband, rather you are my best friend, and I am glad that you are! How can that not be when it is the case that you always listen attentively even when I am short-sighted and hasty! I ask Allaah [The Most High] to increase the love between us for His Sake and strengthen the compassion you have shown me throughout the years. May Allaah bless you – Aameen

 

Career VS Marriage… Delaying Marriage until after 30! Ibn Uthaymeen

The Consequences upon Whoever Delays Marriage until After 30 Years of Age For The Reason of Building His Future.

The Question: If a young man delays marriage, until after 30 years of age whilst having the ability (to get married), Is there anything upon him because he wants to build his future (first) and complete his education?

The Answer: Yes there is something upon him. And it is (the fact) that he did not follow and take the guidance (and instructions) of the Prophet (sallaAllahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam), and his saying is (sallaAllahu alayhi wa sallam):

“O Youth, whoever is able from amongst you to get married, then let him get married, for indeed it is better in lowering the gaze and more preserving for your private parts”. (1)

So he commanded the youth that they should get married and he clarified its benefits. And the statement (excuse) that he is distracted (and busy) with studies and with building his future is a false (invalid) statement. And how many people were not at ease during their studies until after they got married. (after marriage) They found ease (and relief), sufficient provision and self-restraint from looking at that which Allaah has made impermissible, like (looking at) women, pictures and the likes.

Therefore, my advice for the youth (young men & women) in general is that they should get married at the earliest opportunity by following the command of the Messenger of Allaah (sallaAllahu Alayhi wa sallam) and in seeking to attain provision; because the married individual wants chastity and modesty (abstinence and protection from that which Allaah has made impermissible), so Allaah the Glorified and Majestic aids him, as it’s been mentioned in the Hadeeth:

“It is a right on Allaah to aid three (types of people)”,

and he mentioned from them:

“The man who marries wanting chastity”.

(1) Hadeeth is agreed upon: Bukhaaree, 1905; Muslim, 1400.

A Righteous Wife is foundation of righteous communities – Ash Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash Shaykh Al-Fawzaan – hafidahullah – said:

“Oh mankind know that righteous communities are built on righteous families and good houses; good houses are based upon the righteous wife, due to this it is obligatory for the Muslim that he chooses a righteous wife.

(فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّهُ)،

Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah orders them to guard (Soorah An-Nisaa’ Verse 34)

Therefore the Muslim chooses the righteous wife for she is the foundation of the house and she is the cultivator for the offspring and she guards her offspring and husband.

(فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ)
i.e. she is obedient to Allah

(حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ)

: When her husband is away she preserves herself (chastity), his property and his children until he returns.

A dua of the slaves of Ar-Rahmaan (as mentioned in soorah Al Furqaan)

(رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ)

And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, (Soorah Al-Furqaan Verse 74)

So they began their supplication with the wives (i.e. due to the importance of having righteous wives)”

[1] A Reminder from a beloved wife to her beloved husband

Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullaah

My dear husband, we all know that marriage is a sign from the signs of Allaah.  Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. [30:21]

My dear husband, I pray that Allaah (The Most High) grants you happiness and success in this life and the next. May I remind you that being obedient to you in that which Allaah loves is an act of worship and your acts of kindness and compassion are also acts of worship, which cannot be fulfilled except by the Tawfeeq of Allaah (The Most High). So I ask Allaah (The Most High) to grant me Tawfeeq so that I continue being an obedient wife in that which Allaah loves. I also ask Allaah (The Most High) to reward you and grant you safety in this life and the next. Aameen

My dear husband-may Allaah preserve you upon the Sunnah and upon obedience to Him-we all know that that love and compassion in marriage, which is confined within the boundaries of the sharia is the only source of happiness in marriage; therefore I ask Allaah (The Most High) to increase this love between us and include us amongst His grateful slaves.

You know that marriage is a beautiful and blessed affair, but because we are only human we will fall short due to forgetfulness and weakness. Allaah (The Most High) said: [وخُلِقَ الإنسَانُ ضَعِيفاً – And the Insaan was created weak (4:28)]

Therefore, let us constantly remind one another –with gentleness, love, compassion, eagerness for khayr- about fear of Allaah and the home of the afterlife. Indeed, we must utilize the blessed relationship of marriage-which is the one ordained by Allaah-to please our Lord and strive to achieve eternal success in the afterlife. Indeed, we have heard the statement of Allaah (The Most High):

فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الصَّاخَّةُ

يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ

وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ

وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ

لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَأْنٌ يُغْنِيهِ

وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُّسْفِرَةٌ

ضَاحِكَةٌ مُّسْتَبْشِرَةٌ

وَوُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَلَيْهَا غَبَرَةٌ

تَرْهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ

أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَفَرَةُ الْفَجَرَةُ

Then, when there comes As-Sakhkhah (the Day of Resurrection’s second blowing of Trumpet); That Day shall a man flee from his brother; And from his mother and his father; And from his wife and his children. Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others. Some faces that Day, will be bright (true believers of Islamic Monotheism). Laughing, rejoicing at good news (of Paradise). And other faces, that Day, will be dust-stained; Darkness will cover them; Such will be the Kafarah (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, and in His Messenger Muhammad (), etc.), the Fajarah (wicked evil doers). [80:33-42]
