The Importance of Upholding Hayaa in the Home

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ثلاثة قد حرم الله تبارك وتعالى عليهم الجنة: مدمن الخمر والعاق والديوث الذي يقر في أهله الخبث (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 7721)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Three people are such that Allah tabaaraka wata‘ala has made Jannah haraam upon them (i.e. until they do not undergo punishment in Jahannum and are purified from their sins, they will not gain entry into Jannah); (the first person is) the one who is a habitual consumer of wine (or any other intoxicant), (the second person is) the one who is disobedient to his parents, and (the third person is) the ‘dayyooth’ - the one who allows people to commit sin with his wife (or any of his household).”

Aadaab of Interacting with Elders – Part Three

Written by

8. When addressing your elder, speak to him with respect. Do not be rude and disrespectful in your approach.

9. Do not raise your voice above the voice of your elder, nor argue with him.

10. When you are in the company of your senior, do not embark on any activity without his consent.

11. Do not ask your senior to do any work for you. Rather, you should remain in his service.

عن أنس بن مالك قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: يأتي على الناس زمان الصابر فيهم على دينه كالقابض على الجمر (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 2260)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A time will come upon the people (close to Qiyaamah) wherein the one who holds on firmly to his deen will be like a person holding onto a burning ember.”

When Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Ayyaash bin Abi Rabee‘ah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) arrived in Madinah Munawwarah, Abu Jahal bin Hishaam and his brother, Haarith bin Hishaam (i.e. Abu Jahal’s brother who later embraced Islam), travelled to Madinah Munawwarah.

They came to Hazrat Ayyaash (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and said to him, “Your mother has vowed that as long as she does not lay eyes on you, she will neither comb her hair nor will she take shade from the sunshine.” Hearing this, the eyes of Hazrat Ayyaash (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) were filled with tears and he agreed to return to Makkah with Abu Jahal.

Interacting with Elders

Written by

Adab (respect and etiquette) is the secret to success and progress. The amount of progress that a person will make in his life is proportionate to the amount of adab that he possesses.

It is imperative for one to learn the aadaab (etiquettes) when dealing with people – especially one’s elders – in order for one to benefit from them and to ensure that one does not cause them any inconvenience at any time.

Our pious predecessors were perfect examples for us to emulate in order to inculcate adab in our lives.

The Taabi’een (rahimahumullah) remained in the company of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), benefiting from them and acquiring from them the true knowledge and spirit of Deen. They remained committed to their teachings for such a lengthy period until the colour of the sunnah had completely rubbed onto them and permeated their entire lives.
