"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

For the Muslimah.......

Yes to your beautiful smile that sends a warmth and friendliness to others.

No to wasting time in trivial pursuits, love of revenge and futile arguments.

Yes to your kind words that establish friendship as permitted in Islam and dispel rancour

No to giving priority to money and accumulation of wealth over one’s health, happiness, sleep and peace of mind

Yes to acceptable charity that brings happiness to the poor and feeds the hungry

No to seeking other people’s faults and backbiting about them, whilst forgetting one’s own faults.

Yes to sitting with the Qur’an, reciting it, pondering its meanings and acting upon them, and repenting and seeking forgiveness.

No to indulging in physical pleasure alone and giving in to every whim and desire. To wasting money on haram things, being extravagant with regards to permissible things, and falling short in acts of worship.

Yes to raising your children in Islam, teaching them the Sunnah and guiding them to that which will benefit them.

No to wasting time with shallow people and spending hours in idle pursuits.

Yes to modesty and Hijab as enjoined by Allah, which is a means of self protection.

No to neglecting physical hygiene and cleanliness in the house, and being disorganised at home

Yes to friendship of good women who fear Allah, love Islam and respect high values.

No to haram drinks, cigarettes, shisha (“hookah pipes”), and all foul things.

Yes to honouring ones parents, upholding the ties of kinship, honouring one’s neighbour and caring for orphans.

No to thinking of past calamities and dwelling on past mistakes.

Yes to reading useful, interesting and beneficial books.

No to forgetting the Hereafter and neglecting to strive for it, and to being careless of what will happen in the Hereafter.
