May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Sh Aaidh Al-Qarni

The following Hadith is found in the book of At-Tirmidhi: "The best form of worship is to wait (patiently) for a happy outcome."
"Is not the morning near?" (Qur'an II: 81)

The morning of the afflicted is looming, so watch for it. An Arab proverb says, "If the rope becomes too tight, it will snap."

In other words, if a situation reaches the level of crisis, then expect a light and an opening to appear. Allah says: "And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will remit his sins from him, and will enlarge his reward." (Qur 'an 65: 5)

"And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him." (Qur'an 65: 4)

In an authentic Hadith, the Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him) relates this saying from Allah: "I am as My servant thinks (expects) I am. I am with him when he mentions Me. If he mentions Me to himself, I mention him to Myself; and if he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in an assembly greater than it. If he draws near to Me a hand’s length, I draw near to him an arm’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed." [Sahih Al-Bukhari]

Know that, truly, with hardship there is relief. An Arab poet said:
"Some eyes are restless while others are in sleep,
In meditating that which may or may not occur,
So leave worrying as much as possible,
As carrying the burdens of anxiety is madness,
There is your Lord, who provided you with solutions to
And He will similarly provide for what is to come tomorrow."

Another said:
"Let events flow in their predestined path,
And do not sleep except with a clear mind,
Between the period of the blinking of the eye and its opening,
Allah changes things from one state to another."

Question: What is Khula?

Answer: If a couple are hopelessly at odds with each other and the husband is not willing to issue a divorce then the wife can request Khula. Khula basically is when the wife offers to give money to her husband in lieu of her freedom from the marriage.

Khula will be transacted with an offer from the wife and an acceptance from the husband.

While Khula can be done on any amount money, the Fuqaha have rendered it Makrooh (Reprehensible) for the husband to demand more than he had given in Mahr (dowry).

Khula is equivalent to one irrevocable divorce and the wife will observe the Iddah.

اذا تشاق الزوجان وخافا ان لا يقيما حدود الله فلا باس ان تفتدي نفسها منه بمال يخلعها به ؛ فإذا فعل ذلك وقع بالخلع تطليقة باءنة ولزم المال ....
كره له ان يأخذ منها اكثر مما أعطاها ( اللباب فى شرح الكتاب ج٢ص١٨٨)

My husband was once employed in the printing division of a large manufacturing firm. One morning, word came from the top that some visiting VIPs would be touring the plant in just a few minutes.

All production was immediately halted as employees scrambled to quickly tidy up the work place.

When the appointed lookout yelled, "Here they come!" fifty fingers that were poised over fifty machine start-up buttons pressed down in unison and blew every fuse in the building.
