Sources of Barakah

Tying your ties of kinship

We learn in a Hadith that maintaining family ties is a means of bringing Barakah in our wealth and in our lives. This does not mean that we have to constantly invite people and keep on phoning them every day. But just having a good relationship is sufficient. Even if weeks go by without keeping in touch, the main thing is that the relationship should be on good terms. We should not have enmity nor should we keep grudges. The Hadith states…

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ تَعَلَّمُوا مِنْ أَنْسَابِكُمْ مَا تَصِلُونَ بِهِ أَرْحَامَكُمْ فَإِنَّ صِلَةَ الرَّحِمِ مَحَبَّةٌ فِي الأَهْلِ مَثْرَاةٌ فِي الْمَالِ مَنْسَأَةٌ فِي الأَثَرِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَمَعْنَى قَوْلِهِ ‏"‏ مَنْسَأَةٌ فِي الأَثَرِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ يَعْنِي زِيَادَةً فِي الْعُمُرِ

Abu Hurairah R.A. narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: "Learn enough about your lineage to facilitate keeping your ties of kinship. For indeed keeping the ties of kinship encourages affection among the relatives, increases the wealth, and increases the lifespan." [Jami` at-Tirmidhi] Read more

Ode to Corona

You have brought the whole world to its knees
Humankind have lost their sense of peace
Sent down by a power even greater then you

To teach us a lesson or two
We realise upon reflection,
That Our existence depends on interaction
That no matter who we are or what we do,
All Our lives have halted because of you

Cheaper by the Dozen

It always irked my mother that her grocery store didn’t carry eggs in packages of six—just by the dozen.

Then one day, her wish came true. She walked into the grocery and found fresh eggs in cartons of six!

She was so excited, she bought two!
