Spreading kindness in the home

By Sh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Sayyadatina Aaishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: "The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "When Allaah (may He be glorified) 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 Allaah 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 (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Allaah loves kindness and rewards it in such a way that He does not reward for harshness or for anything else." (Reported by Muslim)

When Ghusl becomes Fard on a person, it is Haraam for him to enter a Masjid. However, it will be permissible if there is a dire need. For example, the door of someone's house opens out into the Masjid and there is no other way for him to come out nor is there any other place where he could stay. It will be permissible for him to make Tayammum and go into the Masjid. Or, for example, there is a Ghusl facility in the Masjid and there is no water anywhere else.; To make Tayammum and go into that Masjid will be permissible.

A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law. "I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family," said the man. “To show you how much we care for you, I'm making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operations." The son-in-law interrupted. "I hate factories. I can't stand the noise."

"I see," replied the father-in-law. "Well then you'll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations."

"I hate office work," said the son-on-law. "I can't stand being stuck behind a desk all day."

"Wait a minute," said the father-in-law. "I just make you half-owner of a moneymaking organization, but you don't like factories and won't work in an office. What am I going to do with you?"

"Easy," said the young man. "Buy me out."
