Securing Rewards In Marriage

The Thawaab (reward) for the Sabr (patience) a woman exercises over her difficulties in managing the home of her husband and fulfilling the rights of her husband and children sometimes is such, which makes her ‘reach’ ALLAH TA’ALA very quickly. This, however, is conditional to her obedience to ALLAH TA’ALA; fulfilling HIS Rights, the Rights of HIS Rasul (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam), as well as the Rights of HIS Creation.

Women who have a number of children, sometimes even a temperamental husband, together with many household chores and other responsibilitie­s sometimes think that they cannot achieve the ranks of the Auliya ALLAH because they do not have time for ‘wazeefas’ and Nawaafil (optional prayers).

I tell them that they need not worry about too many wazeefas. The most important ‘wazeefa’ is abstinence from all sins. Added to this they should just correct their niyyah or intention in all that they are doing as routine housework. Make the intention of pleasing ALLAH TA’ALA, then that same housework becomes Ibaadah. In this simple way, they will easily secure great rewards and the same spiritual stages, if not higher.

Similarly, the Thawaab for the Sabr (patience) a man exercises over his wife’s shortcomings, emotional outbursts or mood swings is a medium by which he too acquires great rewards and reaches ALLAH TA’ALA very, very quickly.

Many Auliya ALLAH reached great spiritual heights, and were accepted for tremendous service to Deen on the patience they adopted with their wives, and on the love, care, affection, tenderness and generosity they also extended to their wives.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) set the perfect example for husbands. Despite the tremendous responsibilitie­s that He was entrusted with, He gave due attention and time to His wives and treated them with love and generosity.

He was never harsh or insensitive towards any single wife.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) also said: “The best amongst the Believers is he is whose character is the best. And the best among you is the one who is best towards his wife.”

By Hadhrat Maulana Yunus Patel (Rahmatullahi Alaih)

He was a Murshid (Guide) to thousands of people across the globe who were taught by Him how to drink from the fountain of divine love.

At least Two Qur’aans a Year

When last were we blessed with the complete recitation of the Qur’aan Kareem? Among the rights of the Qur’aan Kareem is to complete at least two khatams (completion) a year. We want everyone to fulfill our rights, let us start by fulfilling the right of the Qur’aan Kareem. Let not a day of purity pass by without us having recited a portion of the Qur’aan Kareem. If on any day we are extremely tired or busy, then the least we can do is to open the Qur’aan Kareem and recite a few lines. A day passed without reciting the Qur’aan Kareem is like a gold chain with a link missing. That chain is incomplete and cannot be used. The Qur’aan Kareem must become part of our lives, to the extent that the day it is not recited we should become restless and uneasy that something is missing in our life today. We make time for everything in our lives, surely we can make time for the Qur’aan Kareem, the beautiful words of our ALLAH TA’ALA. While this is a right of the Qur’aan Kareem, out of HIS Grace and Mercy ALLAH TA’ALA rewards us for its recitation. Upon the recitation of every letter one is blessed with at least ten rewards. Thus the recitation of Surah Fatihah alone will earn us a few thousand rewards. Therefore let us reap the maximum by reciting the Qur’aan Kareem daily.

The Qur’aan is like a garden to a Believer. Whenever the Believer turns towards the Qur’aan, he/she is bound to find something beautiful every time. Subhaan-ALLAH!
