My Dear Sisters

Allah has given us such a high status in Islam-which we are not even aware of!

  1. Daughters: Opens the door to Jannah for her father.

Prophet Muhammad said: “Whoever has three daughters, or three sisters, or two daughters, or two sisters and he keeps good company with them and fears Allah regarding them, then Paradise is for him.”

(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1916)

2. Wife: Becomes half of the faith for her Husband

Prophet Muhammad said: “This world is but provisions, and there is no provision in this world better than a righteous wife.”

(Vol. 3, Book 9, Hadith 1855)

3. Mother: Comes first and the keys to Jannah (paradise) lies under her feet

Abu Huraira reported that a person said: “Allah’s Messenger, who amongst the people is most deserving of my good treatment? He said: Your mother, again your mother, again your mother, then your father, then your nearest relatives according to the order (of nearness).”

(Sahih Muslim 2548 b)

WE even have a whole surah (chapter) in the Quran, dedicated to US! Chapter: 4. An-Nissa (The Women). We must thank Allah for honoring us and giving us such high statuses.

Faith in Islam

What is faith in Islam? What do we believe in? These questions are asked by non-muslims, new muslims, and our children who watch us worship one God (Allah). So what do we tell them?

When the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was asked the question by Angel Jibril (Gabriel): “What is Faith?”, his reply was;

  1. To believe in Allah (God)
  2. Believe in his Angels
  3. Believe in his books.
  4. Believe in his Messengers.
  5. Believe in the Day of Resurrection (Judgement day)
  6. Believe in the Qadr (Decree, Gods will) The good and bad.

These are the 6 articles of faith which are essentials and one of the basics of being a Muslim.
