    The Remedy for Pride Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: If any person sees some good quality in himself and finds that quality lacking in another person, due to which he begins to regard himself to be better than that person, then he should immediately think to himself, “It is possible that this person does not have this good quality in him which I have, but he has some other praiseworthy quality in him which is lacking in me, due to which he is better than me in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala.” Hazrat Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) then mentioned, “If a person trains himself to think in this way, it will assist him to remove self-admiration and pride from his heart and it will save him from regarding himself to be better than others.” (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/55)

    Think of Beginning & End Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned: Most people were destroyed when they became proud and arrogant. When a person shows off and becomes boastful over the bounties he is blessed with, this becomes a means of those bounties being snatched away. The solution to rid oneself of pride is to ponder over one’s beginning and end; initially a drop of impure fluid and eventually decomposed bones beneath the earth. When one thinks over this correctly, the reality strikes him that I am definitely not worthy of any respect, title or position.

    Women and household work ! 🌶🍅🌶🍅🌶🍅🌶🍅🌶🍅 To all of my believing sisters out there who feel “ being stuck at home “ with child rearing and cooking and cleaning day in and day out .... who feel their productivity and creativity is withering away , who feel there is a lot to do out there like going for hifz classes , attending lectures , volunteering for dawah activities and other ways by which they can gain Allah subhaanahu wa taala s pleasure .... Do you feel there is less opportunities at home for acquiring great rewards ? Then let me remind you of 2 great women of Paradise ... Khadijah and Fatimah , may Allah be pleased with them both ... Khadija , (R) was not a scholar of Hadith like , Aisha (R) ... she has not related a single Hadith, nor has she participated in any battle of Islam ... Then what are her achievements , of course being the first convert is the best of them .... which is obviously beyond our reach , but is it only that ? No ... her role as devoted wife and mother of seven children and a pillar of support for her husband in good times and bad , are also priceless achievements , her willingness to serve her husband at all times ... her toil and fatigue ... A Hadith states that once as she was coming with food and drink for the Prophet SAW when he was in Cave Hira, Angel Jibreel descended with the greeting of Salam from Allah for her and brought glad tidings of a house in Paradise built of Pearl where there will be no more noise or fatigue ! Fatimah Bint Muhammad (R) : Wasn’t it her struggles as a wife and homemaker which made her the leader of women In Paradise ? Or have we heard of extraordinary reports about her contributions to deen ? No .... It was her simple life , doing household chores taking care of husband and children and lots of hard work which had bruised her hands ... so much that when she asked for a maid , what did her beloved father say : Rather , my dear , recite 33 times each before sleeping SubhaanAllah , Alhamdulilah , Allahu Akbar , that will relieve you and lighten your burden .... Take home message 🍆🥒🥕🍚 Muslim Women at home are doing a wonderful job , it’s enough to get us to Jannah if we are sincere to Allah and grateful to our husbands and fulfil our amaanah to the best each one can ! So next time you pick up the broom , do it with a smile and sincere dua : “ O Allah accept from me ! “
