The virtue of hilm is more easily practiced in Ramadan. This quality of forbearance is one of the hallmarks of healthy relationships, which are based on increased awareness and sensitivity to our behavior and those of others.  Developing healthy relationships needn't be difficult.

When one lives in the solitude of their own mind it can lead them to believe there is no hope, no future, and ultimately no point. When they’ve been told time and again that no one would help or that their life and struggles meant nothing, it becomes easy to fake that smile, the carefree attitude, and quietly slip back into the abyss of sadness once they’re alone again.

Fulfillment of human needs emanate from love. Love in this world is short lived; especially in a marriage. To love for Al-Wadud, for the sake of The Loving God in unison and to achieve love in this relationship is the most fulfilling pursuit of life. All other worldly pursuits are a mirage that consumes our energy and purpose.

In the absence of sincerely honoring each other in a marriage in order to honor Allah SWT, doubts and distrust surface up and erode the foundation of mawaddah – mutual love and compassion that guarantees perpetual happiness on this earthly life; thus, destroying the bond, that the Prophet SW said completes our faith and purpose

Happy International Women's Day!

“O humankind! Reverence your Lord who created you from a single person and created of like nature his mate and from them scattered countless men and women; reverence God through Whom you demand your mutual rights and the wombs that bore you…” (Quran, 4:1).

The words that appear in the chapter on Women indicate two things. One that woman is an equal component in the creation of human beings and second that women are greatly respected for carrying the responsibility of multiplying men and women on God’s Earth.

Have you ever seen an elderly mother/mother-in-law become a free maid for cooking, babysitting and taking care of the household while the couple is resting, watching TV, going out and partying?

Have you ever seen adult children and grandchildren yelling at and abusing their parents and grandparents all the time.?The forms of abuse might include physical, emotional, financial and social abuse.

Have you ever seen an old parent dumped into a nursing home for 10 years or more where nobody understand their language, halal food is not served, and family members and friends are not allowed to or unable to visit?

Have you ever seen adult children picking on their elderly parents' weaknesses, digging into their past, putting them down in front of others including their grandchildren, making fun of them, accusing them of things that they never did, and then calling them liars?
