This book narrates the stories of about sixty great women whose names and exemplary behavior are enshrined in the history of Islam.
Today there is loss of love among the people and likewise the sense of good manners owed to one another has become abysmally lost. Whoever examines the state of
Everyone chases after happiness, yet few fully recognize what it is or whence it comes from. Happiness isn’t a destination but a journey needing certain inner qualities and a right state of mind to experience and reap. It’s neither sold as a commodity nor can be bought, except through carefully crafting one’s character and following a plan of action.
For indeed, those who don’t plan will fail to realize desired results. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Those among us (destined to be) from people of happiness [in the Hereafter] will (find it easy to) enact deeds of people of happiness…” [Sahih Al-Bukhari, #4948].
In other words, by choosing a path reflecting attitudes of happy people one will recognize its reality and the ease and pleasantry in having good deeds done that are in themselves, characteristics of happy people. It requires contemplation of an alternate world view to one that compounds first world problems, for example.
Shaykh Nasir Al-Sa’di mentions in this short summary, eight ways to achieving the goal of bringing about happiness while driving away its opposites – sadness, grief, and anxiety. Reaching it is contingent on three main causes he identifies to leading a goodly life.
These succinct pointers are easy to understand and you’ll be able to identify the impediments you need to rework and hence live your life with happiness. This will transform you into being the best Muslim you can in today’s complex world, and will also inspire you to train your inner self.
Whoever follows these eight steps will find self-awareness and a pathway to joy and success in this life and the next, Insha’Allah.
In this seminal work, the author suggests that each chapter of the Qur’an contains at least one distinct theme that underlies—and shows the logical connection—between every verse of that chapter. Moreover, he proposes that the chapters themselves take together make up a deliberate and unique portrait of human beings and of the spiritual life. Finally, the author argues that the secrets to the themes are contained and shown in the hadith literature describing the spiritual rewards and effects (fada’il) of various different chapters of the Qur’an.
Allāh the Most High Said: “And your Lord has decreed that you
worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents…”
After Allāh Almighty, there is none who has realised a greater
favour to any person than one’s own parents. His mother bore him
in extreme difficulty and went through great hardship and trouble
while carrying him. Both parents performing their best in raising
him, providing love and compassion and working hard to spend on
him; spending sleepless nights tending to him while ignoring their
own wants and desires.
Islām has gone to great lengths in impressing piety towards parents
and indicating reward and punishment associated to it. A person
with basic common sense understands the rights of the one who
renders favours to him; not recognising such rights is from the most
deprived qualities one can assume. A person who is dutiful and good
to his parents should know that no matter how diligent he is towards
them, he can never repay or thank them for their rights and privileges
granted to them by Allāh.
The renowned and eminent scholar, Ibn al-Jawzī penned this emotive
book upon witnessing disregard and neglect some of the youth in his
time had for their parents and kin, and not regarding it to be a necessary
part of religion. He therefore felt the need to compile a short tract on
these obligations so that the unaware may take heed and reassess the
shortfalls in regards to their own obligations. He arranged it into
seamless chapters touching on divine basis for being dutiful to parents
and enjoining ties of kinship. This English rendering of Ibn al-Jawzī’s
‘Birrul Wālidayn’ will assuredly lead to marked positive realignment
of our own relationships with our parents and families.
And Allāh grants the means and ability to whomsoever He Wills.

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. And if one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them, but address them in terms of honour. And, lower to them (out of kindness), the wing of submission through mercy, and say, My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy, as they cherished me and brought me up when I was small.
