Spiritual training for the members of the household

 

‘Aa’ishah [radiAllahu anha] said:

“The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, used to pray Qiyaam at night,

 

and when he prayed Witr he would say: ‘Get up and pray Witr, O ‘Aa’ishah’”

(Reported by Muslim, Muslim bi Sharh Al-Nawawi, 6/23).

 

The Prophet, [sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam], said:

“May Allaah have mercy on a man who gets up at night and prays, then he wakes up his wife to pray, and if she refuses he throws water in her face.”

(Reported by Ahmed and Abu Dawud. Saheeh Al-Jaami’, 3488).

 

 

Encouraging the women of one’s household to give charity is another means of increasing faith. This is something very important which the Prophet, [sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam], encouraged, when he said:

“O women! Give in charity, for I have seen that you form the majority of the inhabitants of Hell.”

(Reported by al-Bukhaaree, Al-Fath, 1/405).

 

One of the new ideas is to have a box at home for donations to the poor and needy: whatever is put in the box belongs to them, because it is their vessel in the Muslim home.

 

If the family members see an example among them fasting on al-Ayyaam al-Beed (the 13th, 14th and 15th of each Hijri (lunar) month), Mondays and Thursdays, Taasoo’aa’ and ‘Aashooraa’ (the 9th and 10th of Muharram), ‘Arafah, and frequently in Muharram and Sha’baan, this will be a motive for them to do likewise.
