Muslimah’s Guide to Saving Smarter

By Faiza Dean / 27 Feb 2013

As a child, I remember my mother keeping a meticulous record of things she bought with the housekeeping money my father gave her. I often wondered why; and when I asked, she’d say she needed to make hisaab, or be accountable for the money she used. Since the money was entrusted to her by my father, she had to use it responsibly.

As I entered my teenage years, I thought the idea almost laughable – would I be willing to keep track of every cent I spent? Then I became an adult, entered the corporate world and started earning my own money. Stark reality hit me like a bucket of ice cold water in the face on a cold winter’s day!

Women companions of Prophet (pbuh): Asmaa bint Yazeed (ra), the women'€™s representative

By Adil Salahi / 2 Feb 2013 

A woman came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) when he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was sitting with a group of his men companions. She said: “Messenger of God , I am sent by a group of Muslim women and we all share the same view and have the same concern. Allah has sent you to both men and women. We believe in you and follow you. Yet we, women, have to stay at home. We are the object of men's desire and we bear their children. Nevertheless, men have privileges, such as the obligatory Friday prayer, attending funerals and going on jihad campaigns. When they leave for jihad, we look after their property and we rear their children. Messenger of God , do we have a share of reward for doing so?””

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the Status of Women

By Ibrahim H. Malabari / 17 Jan 2013

Recently, we have witnessed instances of the horrific treatment of women around the world.

In the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), similar cruel practices were enacted by his society and he (peace and blessings be upon him) opposed all such forms of oppressing women.

Indeed, at the sight of a tragedy of any human being, Prophet Muhammad’s heart would be saddened and his eyes would flow with tears.


Who are the Mahrams of a Woman

Source: / 15 Jan 2013

When people distance themselves from the instructions of Islam and the rulings of religion -- especially those which guard chastity and the ‘Awrah (parts of the body that must be covered), prevent mixing of progeny and other immoral acts -- they fall into the pit of vice and immorality. This is encouraged by the enemies of Islam who try to control women with all the possible means until they lead them astray and strip them of their modesty, under the pretext of "liberating" them. In reality, they wanted to liberate women from their religion, modesty, and chastity.
