Wholeness of Love - The Tranquil Home

The occupants of a house have the ability to make it a home and fill it with Sakina (tranquility). A brick or wooden structure beautified and sanctified by the warmth of affection, tenderness of care, and depth of love is what we see remain timeless as a Sign of the Creator, The All-Wise, when He says in the Holy Quran that “He created your spouses from among yourselves to find repose in them and He has put love and compassion among you” (30:21).

The wholeness of love in a home depends on the family members (parents, children and siblings). The difference between men and women lies only in the physical realm based on the equitable principle of fair division of labor, giving greatest importance to both genders’ tasks in building a strong, healthy and prosperous society. Allah SWT assures equally a male or a female that “whoever does a good deed will enter paradise” (4:124)

For both these tasks, a unified collaboration is needed in a home to nurture appropriate family decisions, provide a sound and tranquil environment, and raise and support whole human beings who would spread love and harmony and not transgress towards each other. According to Prophet Mohammad SW’s tradition, “women are the twin halves of men.” Likewise, the Quran emphasizes the essential unity of men and women in a profound way by calling them as a “garment for each other” (2:187). The Most Loving God would never allow the destruction of this beautiful relationship.

My Sakan - Home

Home is where love conquers and hate is defeated.
Where calculations don’t count and schemes don’t win.
Where relationships don’t entangle and family ties don’t rupture.
Where faces are true and masks are false.
Where loved ones are attended and tears are mended.

Home is where mercy reigns,and tender care elevates.
Where naïve is not tested and silly is not humbled.
Where faults are not exposed and feelings are not hurt.
Where unsaid words are conveyed and emotions are shared.
Where respect is a right and freedom is a gift.
Where roses shine and colors blast to let a paradise be on Earth.

Tanzeel

Those living in such homes say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our spouses and our offspring the comfort of our eyes…” (25:74).
