Chapter: Women Seeking Knowledge

Only one of these many proofs is sufficient for the ruling that the following statement is false:

“Reading and writing are not for women, they are for us. And for them from us is that they are the origin of impurity.”

It is also false when someone says that it is an innovation that women seek knowledge in the masaajid. Rather, I am amazed that the one who says this would prevent his wife from going to the Houses of Allaah to seek knowledge yet at the same time he allows her to go from house to house and from shop to shop!

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Do not prevent the slaves of Allaah from the Houses of Allaah.” – Al Hadeeth

So, which proof establishes this ignorant person’s claim that it is an innovation for the women to seek knowledge in the masaajid, when its allowance in the Houses of Allaah is known?

Our scholars, the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah, and we do not like that the masaajid are free from study circles and that they are instead established in the houses. We do not get the reward of knowledge and teaching except in the masaajid. This is for both the men and women, and whoever wishes to make a division between them, then he must present his proof and we seek aid in Allaah.

We ask Allaah, the Greatest, to establish us firmly in our religion and that He uses us to benefit Islaam and the Muslimoon.Verily He is the Guardian and Able to do that.

Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Ar-Room (30:23)

Unique Way to Give

The  Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “O son of Adam, it is better for you if you spend your surplus (wealth), but if you withhold it, it is evil for you.”  [Muslim]

Once Abdul-Qadir Jeelani was on his way to perform Hajj. He passed through a small town called Halla where he decided to rest for the night. When people heard of his presence they came to visit him and request him to stay with them. Instead of accepting their invitation he inquired about the most poor and needy person in the village. They told him of a poverty-stricken old man. Abdul-Qadir Jeelani went straight to his house. 

The old man lived in a mud house whose walls had fallen from several places and whose occupants had hung old blankets all around to protect their privacy. The old man lived there with his wife and a daughter. Abdul-Qadir Jeelani requested the old man to allow him to spend a night at his place. The old man said that it if these ruins of his were where he would prefer to stay then that would be an honour for him. So Abdul-Qadir Jeelani stayed the night in the old man’s house. 

The word of Abdul-Qadir Jeelani’s stay in the old man’s house quickly spread all over town and hordes of people came to visit him with presents of all sorts including gold, silver, cows, sheep, goats and grain. Abdul-Qadir Jeelani gave all of these gifts to the old man and when the night was over set out for Makkah Mukarramah. 

After Abdul-Qadir Jeelani’s visit the old man began to live comfortably with his family. Abdul-Qadir Jeelani had only stayed with the old man to help him out and to remove from him the hardships of poverty. The pious servants of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) waste no opportunity to help others.

Now It’s Turmeric? How Much Trend Can We Take?

I recently read Linda Yellin’s piece “When Did Kale Get A Publicist?” in More Magazine and laughed out loud. Well, first I sort of whimpered because More Magazine just started appearing in my mailbox and I couldn’t figure out why until someone told me, not so gently, that it was because I hit the age of 40. They should just call it Forty – just like they call it Seventeen. It’s mean to tease old people.

After overcoming my surprise and stretching my arms reaallllyyy far in front of my face in order to actually read the article, I wanted to be Yellin’s friend, or at least shop and dine with her. She, too, had a childhood that included weekly meatloaf and a mother who didn’t once ask what I’d like for dinner. I had that mother. I am that mother now. Call me vintage, but with four children…
