6 Daily Questions for when You’re in Lock down

By Umm Muhammed Umar

South Africa and much of the world is currently in lockdown, and ‘normal’ life has changed for everyone, overnight. Expecting a lockdown in the United States to be extended, freelance writer, Brooke Anderson posed six (refreshing) “Daily Quarantine Questions” to help her ‘structure’ her days. She reminds us also, that it is a privilege to even be safely sheltered at home and asking these questions.

What am I grateful for today?

Anderson asks, “What are you grateful for today? Take two minutes every day to make a list. Add to it throughout the day.”

If you’re really not a list kind of person, it will still benefit you to spend a handful of minutes every day in contemplation of the bounties we have been blessed with (actually, even out of lockdown conditions, this would probably serve us well). No one, anywhere, can claim to have no blessings at all. According to the Qur’aan, acknowledging our blessings leads to us being further blessed. read more

Question: What is the recommended way to hold the Miswaak?

Answer: It is Sunnah to hold the Miswaak in the right hand in such a way that your thumb and small finger are under the Miswaak, and your three remaining fingers will be on the upper side.

في البحر والنهر والسنة في كيفية أخذه أن يجعل الخنصر أسفله والإبهام أسفل رأسه وباقي الأصابع فوقه كما رواه ابن مسعود (شامي 1/114)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best

Pizza Order

Sometime around two in the morning our phone rang, waking us out of a sound sleep. "Wrong number," my husband growled and slammed down the receiver.

A few minutes later it rang again. I heard him say, "One with pepperoni and extra cheese and one with sausage. Pick up in 20 minutes."

"What was that?" I asked.

"I took his order. Now we can sleep."
