BUILD YOUR HOME THE RIGHT WAY
Making the home a place for the remembrance of Allah
RasululLah sallalLahu alaihi wasallam said: “The likeness of a house in which Allah is remembered and the house in which Allah is not remembered is that of the living and the dead, respectively.”
We must make our homes places where Allah is remembered in all kinds of ways, whether in our hearts, verbally, during prayer, by reading the Qur’an, by discussing Islamic issues, or by reading different kinds of Islamic books.
How many homes nowadays are dead because there is no remembrance of Allah, as mentioned in the hadeeth? How would you describe a home when all that is heard therein is music, singing, backbiting, slander and gossip?
How can the angels enter a home like this? Revive your homes with all kinds of adhkar.
May Allah have mercy on us.
