  1. Encouraging household members to excel in good deeds

The home is very important in Islam. It is where good tarbiyya starts. Performing good deeds is akin to obeying Allah SWT and following the teachings of His Prophet SallalLahu alaihi wa sallam.

RasululLah SallalLahu alaihi wa sallam said: “May Allah have mercy on a man who gets up at night and prays, then he wakes up his wife to pray, and if she refuses he throws water in her face.” (Ahmad and Abu Dawoud; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3488).

Encouraging the women of one’s household to give charity is another means of increasing faith. This is something very important which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) encouraged, when he said, “O women! Give in charity, for I have seen that you form the majority of the inhabitants of Hell.”
(Bukhari, al-Fath, 1/405).

If the family members see an example among them fasting on al-Ayyaam al-Beed (the 13th, 14th and 15th of each Hijri month), Mondays and Thursdays, Tasu’a and ‘Ashura’ (the 9th and 10th of Muharram), ‘Arafaah, and frequently in Muharram and Sha’baan, this will be a motivation for them to do likewise.
