Often times many women, also the muslim women, talk about fighting for equality with men. Equality in leadership, in pay, in society, in communities. This thought is not adaptable to Islam. In Islam men and women have different rights and duties. Men and women are incomparable because of their differences.

In-Comparable Differences

In every hospital, there are doctors and nurses. Although both are needed for the treatment of the patients, they both have different responsibilities in their work. We can`t only have doctors in the hospital or only have nurses. Both are needed for the function of the hospital. In an operation of a patient we can easily see that the doctor has more responsibility of the well-being of the patient than the nurses. Both are needed for the patients operations. We can`t equal the pay of the doctor with the nurses or the nurses pay with the janitor. Although these professions are needed, we can only have full equality between professions who have similarities. There can`t be any comparing between different professions. Doctors can compare their pay with other doctors. Nurses can compare their responsibility with other nurses. Janitors can compare their work-load with other janitors. That`s why many skilled workers join union movements. To fight for the rights of their profession. So when it comes to women and men, they also are non-comparable to each other, because of their difference in their function emotionally. biologically, physiologically and psychologically.

The Empathy And Sensitivity Of A Police-Woman

There is a reason why there are more men in some professions than women and vice versa. Often times there are more women working as teachers. There are often more men in the profession of doctors and engineers compared to women. The “incomparability” is the key word. This doesn`t mean that we can`t strengthen the rights of women or men in different professions. No matter how much we facilitate for women / men in some professions, not every profession is made for the majority of women / men. For example no matter how strong a woman police officer might be, when she experience something difficult, because of her natural in-built empathy, her response to the crime scene will be more sensitive. Because women are more sensitive than men. And no matter how caring and gentle a man is, he can can`t replace a mothers love, care and upbringing for her child. It`s just impossible. The role of bearing a child, can`t be given to a man, because it`s given to women by Allah. So in every profession where women work, one time or the other, she will have to take a years leave for her duties as a mother. That is her right and responsibility, and it follows her no matter what profession she chooses. Let`s rather use the resources we have on matters where we can have a positive impact for the community and society. Some professions are tougher and harder than others. It will have an impact on the human that chooses those. For example, police, psychologist, doctor, social worker, child welfare employee, social security employee etc.

svane familieMany people often neglect children’s need to be seen and heard and valued for who they are, where their abilities are appreciated regardless of their siblings or friends achievements. A childs joy, when their parents listen attentively, and value all the siblings individually, when they are together as a family, is important. Often we wonder why some adults are so quiet and not into talking that much. When they grow up amongst many siblings, where some are very dominating, it is obvious that other doesn`t get that much chance to blossom or show their abilities. It could lead to they not cultivate their talents as much as their potential. People in general grow better in the right environment. Since everyone has different needs, we grow the best in different places. Seeing your child as the individual he/she is and value them for who they are, without comparison to other, is important.

 

Undiscovered Potential

Sitting at the dinner table with the family, and giving everyone chance to respond and talk to the family, is must, no matter how old they are, because their opinions need to be valued, to make them feel that they also have important opinions. Who hasn`t heard a toddler or a young child say something that is beyond his/her age. By excluding some children from the conversations, we can damage their self-esteem, and prevent them from believing in themselves. The saying “ghar ki murghi daal barabar”, is quite funny and accurate to prove the point. People outside of the family, sees so much potential in a child, while within the family, he/she can be neglected.

 

Values Are More Important Than Education

Our parents might have had this way of raising us. If we havent learned from their mistakes, we have not learned anything worthwhile. What can be more important than moulding our next generation into beautiful/giving people with good values who has the confidence to stand for what they believe in. I`m sure if we ask our friends all of them has something to point out about how they got raised by their parents. Good solid education won`t do any good for anyone, if the conduct, character, morals, manners, self-esteem etc are not cultivated and sound.

 

When You Are On Right, You Will Be Rewarded

Teaching children that nothing comes in this world without hard work. There is no elevator to success, everyone has to take the stairs, one step at a time, as long as you work hard and abide by the rules, you are a winner, no matter the outcome. Even if others doesn`t value your efforts know that Allah sees your struggles and will reward you, in this life and next. A good environment starts at home and as the child grows older other places like kindergarten, school, college, work and friends will have an impact on them. If we don`t cheer our children for their achievements, no matter how small, they will find someone who does. And that someone isn`t necessarily a good influence on them. For them to have a solid confidence to say no to bad things, they must have a good dose of self-esteem and confidence, that is taught from their early years. When children realize that Allah will reward, they will turn to Him, instead of other people for validation. Help them see the beauty in their conduct and character not their appearance. Having a rich character, makes one feel good. The only way to feel good is to know that you are doing something right, and having trust that you will be rewarded for it by Allah.

 

 

happy feetSee, Hear And Value Your Children

Treat them as individuals. Cheering them for having good conduct, character, and filling their bucket of esteem and confidence, and cultivating good values in them, will help them in all their struggles in life. Helping them believe in themselves will make it easier for them to cope with challenges. There is no bigger favour a parent can do for his/her child. Being fair so that no one is excluded and everyone gets a fair chance to speak, is important. It proclaims a message of equality. We need to be fair when some of the children are more dominating. When we teach children to listen to each other, they will of course do that. Growing up in an environment where we can`t express our views without fear of being ridiculed by other siblings, is damaging. The parents can make rules for a healthy conversation/discussion at home and make sure that they are also followed. Since the parents are the shepherds of the family, they need to make sure that their children are under good care and that their individual needs are filled and they are given space where they grow best. They will be questioned about their care, from Allah.

contentLife is not always easy, but it is neither always difficult. With the difficulties we have blessings. Sometimes we recognize them and become grateful. The part of this life is that nothing is perfect, because perfection is only in Paradise. If everything would have been all good here, why would we want to work for Jannah?

 

Comfort In Good And Bad Times

We cannot have the goal in our life that we always want to be happy, because there will always be ups and downs in life. In a little period of times there can be more negatives than positives and seemingly the opposite. If we learn to be content, than maybe whether things are going against us or not, we would be happy with the decree of Allah and be blessed even in the difficulties. Though it might not be easy, but hey, we have Allah right? We are guided to pray to Him, ask Him, Send blessings on our Prophet pbuh. We find a great source of comfort in good and bad times by these gestures. Not just that we are also given multiple good deeds in our account for them. It is for our own good. If we pray or do these good deeds, we are only doing ourselves a favour, there will not be any difference in Allah`s Greatnesss if we don`t pray. But we might lose Jannah if we don`t. What bigger loss is there, than to lose the eternity in a place where “No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do”. (Sahih, Muslim). Prophet pbuh has said : “The Lowest of the people in Paradise in rank will have ten thousand servants. The last person to enter Paradise will from amongst it`s dwellers will be a man by whom His Lord, High and Exalted – will pass. He will tell him: “Get up and enter Paradise!`. The man will frown and say: “Have you left anything there for me?`. Allah will then answer him: “Yes, for you is the like of the wealth of the world. SubhanAllah!

 

The Hikmah Behind It

If we always ask Allah for contentment with His decree, than whatever life will give us whether it is good or not, we will be grateful in good times and show patience in bad times and always be contented with what happens. There is always a Hikmah behind a decision made by Allah, just because we cannot understand it, doesn`t mean it is without. Often we understand such things several years after something good or bad happened in our life.

 

The Best Of Riches

There is no greater satisfaction than being content.  Prophet has said: “Wealth is not having a lot of possessions, but it is having self-contentment”. (Sahih, Bukhari). When we understand that the biggest achievement is to gain Paradise, than everything else will be insignificant for us compared to it. When we understand that there is no other way to success, we will also try to work for it. May the people we love for the sake of Allah, join us in Jannatul Firdous, and may Allah help us in our struggle to work for it and bless us and give us barakah in every aspect of our life. Ameen summa ameen.

 

Being nice to people who are nice back is an easy task, but being nice to people who are mean to you is the most difficult task ever. And yet so important.

Allah says in the Quran :

” Repel evil with that which is best: We are well-acquainted with the things they say”. Quran 23:96).

The meaning of the Ayat is: ” Whether people speak evil of you, in your presence or behind your back, or they do evil to you in either of those ways, all is known to Allah. It is not for you to punish. Your best course is to not do evil in your turn, but to do that will repel the evil. Two evils do not make a good.

Allah says in the Quran:

” Nor can goodness and evil be equal. Repel evil with what is better: Then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend”. (Quran 41:34).

anger management, sabr, talking about emotions

The meaning of the Ayat is: ” You do not return good for evil, for there is no equality or comparison between the two. You repel and destroy evil with something that is far better, just as an antidote is better than poison. You foil hatred with love. You repel ignorance with knowledge, folly and wickedness with the friendly message of Revelation.

This is very difficult to do at times yet the reward is immense 🙂

Allah says in the Quran :

” Twice will they be given their reward, for that they have persevered, that they avert evil with good, and that they spend in charity out of what we have given them”. (Quran 28:54).

This is something we should think about next time we are in a discussion about anything, and I am counting in myself as well. When the reward is immense surely it cannot be that easy task either. Though with every difficulty there comes relief, so one needs to show patience. “Is there any reward for good other than good?”. (Quran 55:60).

My Prayer..

“O Allah, place light in my heart, and on my tongue light, and in my ears light and in my sight light, and above me light, and below me light, and to my right light, and to my left light, and before me light and behind me light. Place in my soul light. Magnify for me light, and amplify for me light. Make for me light and make me a light. O Allah, grant me light, and place light in my nerves, and in my body light and in my blood light and in my hair light and in my skin light.” Ameen

Surah 105 Al Fil

Let not man be intoxicated with power, Or material resourses, They cannot defeat. The purpose of Allah. So Abrahah Ashram Found to his cost. His sacrilegious attack On the holy Fane of Allah brought about His own undoing:what seemed but frail Destroyed his mighty hosts in a day!

The foolproof tip of the day for everyone else!

USE YOUR OWN VOICE TO RAISE YOUR OPINION!

Nasiyat..

(",) My Mum always says that
you should marry someone
who loves you more than you
love him, because that man
would never ever make you cry
or be the reason that your
sheding tears. He would do
anything to always keep you
happy and satisfied (",)

Poetry

(“,) Your heart is mine and mine is yours, and so it`s been since I`ve known love`s true meaning itself, holding each others hand we stand together beneath the lovely sky, gazing towards the same destiny, just U and I (“,)

Saari duniya ke liye dard
se mahmor hain jo..
Ik faqat Rehmat-e-aalam

Ye sab tumhara
karam hain Aka

bani hoyi hain..

Ehsas dein toofik dein..
Phir jazbaen Siddiq dein..

Kya ye zarra likhein
Shaan Unki, jin pe
bejhein Salaam
khud Khudai..

Though we might sometimes
have to struggle through thick
