BY: 

As the days come to closer to one’s marriage, excitement, ecstasy and elation pump through the bride and groom.  The build up to marriage is an experience of thrill and jubilation.  When the marriage is solemnised, one’s happiness and delight is on the verge of brimming and tipping over.  When the newlywed couple meet for the first time, words cannot describe the sweetness, bliss, serenity, pleasure and elation tasted by the two.

Role of Women in Islamic Education

Role of Women in Islamic Education

How does a woman fulfill her relationship with Allah Most High, and at the same time, also serve the community?

There are many extremes in this. For example, some people believe that women should not be educated at all; that they should be kept completely ignorant so that they don’t know anything beyond the basics of their faith. This is completely rejected by our deen. Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi, for example, compiled the famous work Bahishti Zewar and aimed it particularly toward women. The comprehensiveness of the book suggests it is a work that ought to live on the bookshelf of every home and used as a guidance for every aspect of a woman’s (and indeed her family’s) life. Indeed, such is the usefulness of the book that it is not uncommon to find muftis using Bahishti Zewar as a reference point nowadays.

Women’s Mosque? Women’s Empowerment?

Women’s Mosque? Women’s Empowerment?

The Women’s Mosque of America has started operations in Los Angeles. It is not a mosque per se, but the name of a non-profit organization. It began with holding female only Jumuah prayers, in an old synagogue with Stars of David etched on the stained glass windows. The decision to use this venue was made to “promote peace.”

Creating a separate space for Muslim women is a noble idea. Unfortunately the organizers chose the one event for this project for which it has no basis in the Shariah. Muslim women are not required to offer Jumuah. Read more about Women’s Mosque? Women’s Empowerment?

Worker bee or Queen Bee?

Worker bee or Queen Bee?

The House Wife, a Stay at Home Mom… A Taboo Topic?
By: Mufti Abraar Alli

What kind of bee are you? Ever pondered over the remarkable role of bees and how Allah Ta’ala creates honey from the union of the queen and worker bees? Well we should ponder, if we haven’t!! The job spec of the queen bee and the worker bee is uniquely defined, each creature has a different objective. We won’t try to change the nature and responsibilities of wild untamed bees, then why would we try to change that of the cultivated forms of existence, i.e. we, the humans?
