The Muslim Woman and Her Parents

Monday, March 11th, 2013

 


She treats them with kindness and respect (birr)

One of the main distinguishing characteristics of the true Muslim woman is her respectful and kind treatment of her parents.

Islam encourages respect towards and kind treatment of parents in many definitive texts of the Qur’an and Sunnah; any Muslim woman who reads these texts has no choice but to adhere to their teachings and treat her parents with kindness and respect, no matter what the circumstances or the state of the relationship between daughter and parents.

She recognizes their status and knows her duties towards them

From her reading of the Qur’an, the Muslim woman understands the high status to which Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) has raised parents, and that it is a status which mankind has never known except in Islam, which has placed respect for parents just one step below belief in Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) and true worship of Him. Many ayat of the Qur’an describe pleasing one’s parents as coming second only to pleasing Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He), and confirm that treating parents well is the best of good deeds after having faith in Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He). “Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good, to parents…” (Qur’an Surat An-Nisa’: 36)

A Whole Life-Pattern

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Dr. Absar Ahmad

The Qur’anic definition of moral righteousness and virtue depicts a whole life-pattern that may not be reduced or adulterated. According to the Qur’an, moral behaviour is essentially a function of the total human person or spirit. And by ‘spirit´ the reference is here to the dynamic unity of body and mind, of vitality and rationality, of the emotional and the intellectual. In every function of the human spirit the whole person is involved and not merely one part or one element. All elements of man´s being participate in every moral decision and action. In this sense righteousness admits of no division: it is an expression of the total personality of a man. This becomes clear when we concentrate on the first part of the verse in which moral worth or value has been negated in respect of a particular type of action performed ritualistically. Whereas the positive declaration starts with the words ‘righteous is he …….´ or ‘righteousness is of that person …….´

Homes Are Built On Love

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Marriage is not a passing adventure! It is a life relationship, a firm covenant, and a very serious partnership.
There are three necessary conditions for every Muslim home to fulfill its mission. They are tranquility, love, and mercy.
I mean by tranquility satisfaction. A husband should be totally satisfied by his wife and vice versa. Love is a mutual feeling that makes the relationship a happy and enjoyable one and mercy is the basis of all good traits in men and women.

God, tells Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the Quran:
{Thus it is due to mercy from God that you deal with them gently, and had you been rough, hard hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you.} (Al-Mai’dah 3: 159)
Mercy is not a temporary feeling of sympathy. It is rather a continuous flow of niceness, high morals, and honorable attitude.

Nurturing Marital Love

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

He bounded up the stairs so energetically that it was hard for me to believe that here was a man of more than eighty years. He had the vitality of a youth. Then I learned the reason why: Though he had gotten married back in 1947 when he was about thirty years old, he was able to say to me: “I do not recall that I ever once got angry with my wife or that she was even once annoyed with me. And if I had a headache, it was impossible for her to sleep until after I fell asleep.

 

” Then he said with feeling: “I can never think of going out somewhere, even to purchase some household needs, without taking her with me and holding her hand. It is as if we are newlyweds.” When, due to a medical operation, she had become unable to bear children, he said to her: “You are more precious to me than children.” He told me: “As long as she walks upon the Earth, I could never even think of marrying anyone else.” That man is a good example of how devotion can last even into old age. Unfortunately, when we look at the state of the majority of people of any age, we can appreciate that his relationship is a rarity indeed, a sort of ideal. Of course, we do not have to be held to such an ideal. Moreover, we should not go to our spouses and expect them to be like that when we ourselves have so many shortcomings. Marriage is love and affection. Allah says: “He created for you mates from among yourselves so that you can seek comfort in them and He has placed between you affection and mercy.” [ Sûrah al-Rûm: 21] This is why each sex is drawn to the other in the first place, as if each person is looking for his missing other half. When the wife of the famous jurist Abû Rabî`ah died, he carried out her burial himself and had to wipe the dirt from his own hands.

Good Manners at Home

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

‘Aa’ishah (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘When Allah (SWT) wills some good towards the people of a household,

He introduces kindness among them.'” (Reported by Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad, 6/71; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 303)

According to another report:

“When Allah loves the people of a household, He introduces kindness among them.” (Reported by Ibn Abi al-Dunya and others; Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 1704)

In other words, they start to be kind to one another. This is one of the means of attaining happiness in the home, for kindness is very beneficial between the spouses, and with the children, and brings results that cannot be achieved through harshness, as the Prophet (SAW) said:

“Allah loves kindness and rewards it in such a way that He does not reward for harshness or for anything else.” (Reported by Muslim, Kitaab al-Birr wa’l-Sillah wa’l-Aadaab, no. 2592)

Islam And Human Rights

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Islam is a religion of peace, progress and prosperity.The word “Islam” has been derived from “salam”, which means “peace”. Itbestows upon its followers a superset of all varieties of rights, of which all human rights is a small subset.In Islam, people are awarded rights and duties to honor those rights of others for every stage and turn in life. From parents’ rights, relatives’ rights, friends’ rights to poor people’s rights, neighbor’s rights, spouses’ rights and children’s rights, the religion makes provisions for every type and extent of human rights to be awarded to every single person. The religion also makes it mandatory for its followers to respect the very same rights of other people as well, whether or not they are followers or believers. Despite the race, color, cast, creed or religion of people, Muslims are taught to deal with one and all with great respect and honor, as they would want done unto them.

The first and foremost provision that Islam makes towards ensuring the human rights of its followers as well as those of the non-believers is to clarify that religion cannot be imposed upon people: the choice to follow the religion must come to a person from within the self. All Muslims are taught that religion is a matter of choice and the freedom to choose paths for one’s life is one of the greatest human rights that must be made available to each and every person. This is one of the primary human rights that Islam honors all human beings with, and not just the Muslims.

Rights of minorities in Islamic civilization

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Written by Dr. Ragheb Elsergany

Introduction

Rights of minoritiesUnder the Islamic law, non-Muslim minorities received rights and privileges that other minorities did not have under any other law in any other country. The relationship between the Muslim community and the non-Muslim minority is based on Allah’s rule that says: {Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.} [Al-Mumtahanah: 9].

This verse has identified the ethical and legal basis, with which Muslims must treat non-Muslims, namely kindness and justice with all those who do not have enmity against them. The humanity did not know these rules before Islam. It lived for centuries after Islam, but suffered the horrors of lacking them. It still looks forward to the day when it can apply these rules in modern societies but to no avail due to passion, fanaticism and racism.

Rights of slaves and workers in Islamic civilization

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Written by Dr. Ragheb Elsergany

Examples of rights of slaves and workers in Islam

Rights of slaves and workers in Islamic civilizationIslam honored and cared for slaves and[1] workers and recognized their rights for the first time in history – after work in some old laws meant slavery and dependence, while in others meant humiliation and degradation – aiming to administer social justice and provide a decent life for them. The biography of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is the best evidence for the greatness of the Islamic civilization’s look to slaves and workers, as he (peace be upon him) recognized their rights.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) urged employers to treat their slaves humanely and decently. He also urged them to have pity on them, be kind with them and not to assign them a work that they can not bear. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Your slaves are your brothers and Allah has put them under your command. So, whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. Do not ask them (slaves) to do things beyond their capacity (power) and if you do so, then help them.” [2]So, the Prophet’s declaration “Your slaves are your brothers” came to elevate the level of a slave to that of a brother, something which has never happened in any civilization.

Rights of patients and people with special needs

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

ritten by Dr. Ragheb Elsergany

Introduction

Rights of patientsIslam and the Islamic civilization have a special approach towards the care for patients and people with special needs. This approach starts with reducing some legal obligations placed on them, as stated in the words of Almighty Allah (be He Exalted): {It is no fault in the blind nor in one born lame, nor in one afflicted with illness} [Al-Nur: 61, Al-Fath: 17]. The approach ends with bringing hope for them and preserving their physical and psychological rights.

 

The Prophet’s treatment of patients

The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to hasten to visit a patient if he heard about his illness, although the Prophet was busy and had many concerns. His visit was not stilted or forced, but he felt duty towards patients; why not, as he (peace be upon him) made the visit of a patient one of the latter’s rights?! He (peace be upon him) said: “The rights of a Muslim on Muslims are five… to visit the sick.” [1]

Freedom of ownership between Communism and Capitalism

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Written by Dr. Ragheb Elsergany


 

The ancient and modern world was bewildered in the issue of ownership or property[1]. Different schools of thought and ideas were made in this regard. Communism, for example, wasted individual’s value and freedom as no one has the right to possess a land, factory or real estate or any other means of production. S/he should work as wager for the state, which owns and possesses the resources of production and makes it impossible for him or her to have capital even if this capital is halal (lawful).

Capitalism was also there. It is based on making as holy private ownership without putting any restrictions. It gives the individual the right to possess what he wants, develop it or spend it the way he wants without any slightest restrictions on means of his ownership, development or spending and without any rights to the society in this regard.

Islam, freedom of ownership

And between the extremism of Capitalism in exaggerating the importance of private ownership and the extremism of Communism in scrapping this ownership, including the disadvantages of the two systems, Islam shows us the moderate way that combines both private and collective ownership. Islam has permitted private ownership with certain restrictions to protect others. It also prohibited right of ownership in certain cases to take care of people and encouraged collective ownership. This means that Islam has endorsed individual’s right to ownership and right of collective ownership in a balanced and moderate way.
