THE MESSAGE
REFRAINING FROM SIN

Although the Shayateen may be chained up, the habits left with us from the previous 11 months of the year do not go away so easily! We need to exert much effort to refrain from such habitual sins in this month in order to benefit fully.

Imam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alaihi) mentions in Ihyaa Uloom-id-Deen that fasting is of three categories:

1. The fasting of the layman - To abstain from eating, drinking and cohabitation.
2. The fasting of those who desire to attain Allah’s closeness - In addition to abstaining from the above three acts, to control the organs and senses from forbidden lust and desire.
3. The fasting of those who have achieved the highest degree of proximity to Allah - To abstain from everything besides Allah and devote ones attention towards Allah alone. To strengthen ones spiritual connection with Allah.

Let us strive to surpass the first category of people who only refrain from eating & drinking etc by making an intention to leave all sin and vice. Only then can we hope to become closer to Allah. For many a times during the blessed month, because our bodies are engaged in fasting and our mouths are full of thirst we feel as though we are doing great deeds. However, little do we realise that we are actually wasting away many of these good deeds due to the detrimental effects of our sins.

In fact, all this was actually prophesised hundreds of years ago as we were warned by Nabi (salallahu alaihi wasalam): “Many of those who fast, obtain nothing through such fasting except hunger and many of those who perform salaah during the night obtain nothing by it, except the discomfort of staying awake.” (Ibn Majah)

May Allah save us from being amongst such people. Ameen

It is a well known fact that while committing good deeds, if a person also commits sins, he/she washes away the effects of the good deeds. This is because the nur (light) of the good deeds are being polluted by the evil...this is exactly why although many of us engage ourselves in fasting and worship during the month, soon after Ramadhan we seem to return to our old ways. It is because the nur of our hearts was not allowed to prevail due to our persistent sinning.

FIQH
If a small amount of vomit comes out but it returned down the throat on its own. The fast will not break. However, if the person swallows it intentionally, the fast will break.

OUR LATEST PODCAST
TIPS ON RAISING KIDS – ML YUSUF OMAR – PART 1 of 3

Ml Yusuf mentioned the importance of correct upbringing for children which plays a vital role in the way their lives, thinking and behaviour are shaped in later years. Whether living in an Islamic society or not, it is surely difficult to expose children to an ideal Islamic environment all the time, when they are easily influenced by friends, school buddies, family and media. It is impossible too, to shield our kids from negative forces and bad attractions. However, Ml Yusuf has provided few helpful tips to make this amaanat, this task easy as a parent. Keeping in mind that a child is a trust given to a parent by Allah Ta’aala, hence if the child veers off the true and correct path as a result of poor upbringing, the parents, both mother and father would be held accountable. This is part 1 of 3… Listen

THE SMILE
An acquaintance of ours was - how do I put this delicately? - not well loved. So when he died, I was amazed to see how many people showed up for his funeral.

"I'm not surprised," said my husband. "As P. T. Barnum said, ‘Give the people what they want and they'll show up.' "
