1. When saying Takbeer‐e‐Tahreema females should raise both their hands up to the shoulders
without removing them from under the Burqa.(a kind of shawl or veil covering the whole body
from head to foot‐ translator) (Tahtaawee‐ pg.141)
2. Thereafter they should tie their hands on the chest in such a manner that the palm of the right
hand is placed on the back of the left hand. She should not grip her wrist with her thumb and
small finger like men. (Tahtaawee‐ pg.141)
3. Bend slightly in Ruku, and place the fingers of both hands joined together on the knees. Do not
spread them. Keep the arms close to the side of the body. Join the ankles of both feet.
(Tahtaawee‐ pg.141, Behishti Zewar Vol.2 pg.16)
4. The feet should not be kept erect in Sajdah but should be placed horizontally on the floor
pointing to the right. Crouch and draw the body in, as much as possible when making Sajdah , so
much so that the thighs touch the stomach and the forearms are joined to the sides of the body
and the elbows are spread flat on the ground.(Behishti Zewar Vol.2 pg.17)
5. When sitting in Qa’dah the feet should be spread out horizontally on the ground on the right
side. Both the hands should be kept closed. (Tahtaawee‐ pg.146 and Shami‐Vol.1 pg. 373)
Words from a christian sister: Joanna Francis.
A woman’s sexuality should be guarded from unworthy eyes, since it
should be your gift to the man who will marry you.
Your most valuable assets are your inner beauty, your innocence, and everything that makes you who you are.
But I notice that some Muslim women push the limit and try to be as Western as possible, even while wearing a veil (with some of their hair showing).
Why imitate women who already
regret, or will soon regret, their lost virtue? There is no compensation for that loss.
You are flawless diamonds. We Western women have been brainwashed into thinking that you Muslim women are oppressed. But truly, we are the ones who are oppressed; slaves to fashions that degrade us, obsessed with our weight, begging for love from men who do not want to grow up.
Deep down inside, we know that we have been cheated. We secretly admire and envy you, although some of us will not admit it.
Please do not look down on us or think that we like things the way they are. It’s not our fault. Most of us did not have fathers to protect us when we were young because our families have been destroyed. You know who is behind this plot.
Don’t be fooled, my sisters! Don’t let them get you too. Stay innocent and
We Christian women need to see what life is really supposed to be like for women. We need you to set the example for us, because we are lost.
Hold onto your purity. Remember: you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube. So guard your “toothpaste” carefully!
I hope you receive this advice in the spirit in which it is intended: the spirit of friendship, respect, and admiration.
From your Christian sister, Journalist : Joanna Francis.
When hardship afflicts one, firstly remember one’s sins. Such remembrance of shortcomings and faults will fortify one against depression during the hardship. One will then realize the correctness of the affliction and accept it without complaint. One will regret and not complain. Secondly, meditate the reward which Allah has promised for hardship. Remembering this reward will lessen the grief and keep one resolute in the state of hardship. Never complain nor entertain the impression that Allah Ta’ala has become displeased with one. This impression is dangerous because it weakens the bond with Allah Ta’ala and by degrees one’s relationship with Allah Ta’ala becomes effaced.
Consider hardship as either a punishment or a trial and contemplate its reward. At the time of hardship, the Shariat instructs sabr and firmness. For every hardship, the compensation will be good. There is, most assuredly, benefit in hardship, in this world as well as in the Akhirat although one may not be able to understand the worldly benefit therein.
Assuming and Judging people without any knowledge or proof is a great work of the devil.
On the day of Qiyamah Allah will ask those people who claimed to make false accusations against their muslim brothers/sisters without any proof.
For good thoughts against someone, Allah will not ask.
Your corpse will not be able to cast lustful glances but that will not warrant one any reward from Allah Ta’ala, for the sacrifice of a corpse is not acceptable in His court. Allah Ta’ala wants us to become His, to sacrifice our desires, whims and fancies while hale and hearty,while still alive and able to commit those sins. Why are you waiting for that time when death will reap your soul and you will be unable to disobey Allah? This will be termed, ‘being made to give up sins’ and not ‘giving up sins’. Voluntarily giving up sins while the choice to commit them still exists within one will entail a lofty stage of friendship with Allah Ta’ala. Bear the burden of leaving sins. If one desires to enjoy the pleasure of Allah’s pleasure, bear the burden and experience that pleasure wherein the burden itself will no longer remain a burden.
