Religion / * Common Mistakes To Avoid In Ramadan* by abat4real37(f): 4:08am On May 08, 2020
MISTAKE #1. SOME MUSLIMS FAST BUT DON'T PRAY

The fasting of one who does not pray will not be accepted. This is because not praying constitutes kufr. In fact, it is likely that none of his good deeds will be accepted unless Allah decides to have mercy. The Prophet (pbuh) said:

Between a man and shirk and kufr there stands his giving up prayer. ~ Muslim

The Prophet (PBUH) said: "Anyone who loses his 'Asr' prayer is like a person whose family has perished and whose property has been looted." ~ Abu Dawud 2/24

MISTAKE #2. TAKING RAMADAN AS A RITUAL

For many of us Ramadan has lost its spirituality and has become more of a ritual than a form of Ibadah. We fast from morning to night just because everyone around us is fasting too. We forget that it’s a time to purify our hearts and our souls from all evils.

We forget to make du'a, forget to beseech Allah to forgive us and ask Him to save us from the Fire.

MISTAKE #3. SKIPPING SUHOOR (PRE-DAWN FOOD)

The Prophet (PBUH) said: "The thing that differentiates between our fasting and the fasting of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) is eating suhoor." ~ Muslim 13/56, Abu Dawud 14/31; Nasai 22/77
And He (pbuh) said: "Eat suhoor for in suhoor there is blessing." ~ Bukhari and Muslim

MISTAKE #4. SOME DON'T FAST IF THEY MISS SUHOOR

Some people are too scared to fast if they miss Suhoor. However, this is a kind of cowardice and love of ease.

Having Suhoor is one of the important Sunnah of The Prophet (PBUH), and not Fardh.

So it's anybody's guess if you miss Suhoor then you can still keep the fast.

Obedience to Allah overcomes everything. If one misses Suhoor but gets up before dawn, make an intent and continue your fast.

With regard to saying dua everyday, there is no dua that the Muslim should say when starting to fast each day. Rather he should simply have the intention (in his heart) that he is going to fast.

The intention is subject to the condition that it be made at night, or before the dawn comes, because the Prophet (PBUH) said: “There is no fast for the one who does not intend to fast before dawn. ~ Nasai 2339

The intention (niyyah) is an action of the heart. The Muslim should resolve in his heart that he is going to fast tomorrow. It is not prescribed for him to utter it out loud and say, “I intend to fast” and other phrases that have been innovated by some people.

MISTAKE #5. EMPHASIS ON FOOD AND DRINK

For some people, the entire month of Ramadan revolves around food. They spend the entire day(s) planning, cooking, shopping and thinking about food, instead of concentrating on Salaah, Qur'an and other acts of worship. All they can think of is food. So much so that they turn the month of 'fasting' into the month of 'feasting'.

Come Iftaar time, their table is a sight to see, with the multitudes and varieties of food, sweets and drinks. They are missing the very purpose of fasting, and thus, increase in their greed and desires instead of learning to control them. It is also waste & extravagance.
Quran 7:31 says ".....and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allah) likes not Al-Musrifoon (those who waste by extravagance)".

MISTAKE #6. SPENDING MOST OF YOUR TIME COOKING

Some of the sisters (either by their own choice or forced by their husbands) are cooking almost ALL day and evenings so that by the end of the day, they are too tired to even pray Isha, let alone pray Taraweeh or Tahajjud or even read Qur'an. This is the month of mercy and forgiveness. So turn off that stove as much as possible and focus on reinforcing your Imaan! Remind your husbands the real intent of Ramadan. In Sha Allah you will be rewarded for this.

MISTAKE #7. EATING TOO MUCH, IS FORBIDDEN

Some people stuff themselves at Suhoor until they are ready to burst, because they think this is the way to not feel hungry during the day. And some people eat at Iftaar, like there is no tomorrow, trying to 'make up for the food missed.'

However, this is completely against the Sunnah. Moderation is the key to everything. The two hadiths below is to be followed throughout the year, and not just in Ramadan.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: "The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach; for the son of Adam a few mouthfuls are sufficient to keep his back straight. If you must fill it, then one-third for food, one-third for drink and one-third for air." ~ Ibn Majah, 4/29/3349

Too much food distracts a person from many deeds of obedience and worship, makes him lazy and also makes the heart heedless. It was said to Imam Ahmad (R): “Does a man find any softness and humility in his heart when he is full?” He said, “I do not think so.”

MISTAKE #8. HOSTING AND PARTICIPATING IN EXTRAVAGANT IFTAAR PARTIES

Although, inviting each other for breaking fast is something good and encouraged. However some people go to extremes with lavish 'Iftaar parties' with all sorts of disobedience to Allah, from flirting, mixing of the sexes and hijab-less women, to show-off and extravagance, to heedlessness to Salah, and Taraweeh to even music and dancing.

A good deed in Ramadan is multiplied 10 times. An evil deed done in Ramadaan is more sinful than one done at any other time, just as an act of worship done in Ramadaan brings a greater reward from Allaah than one done at any other time.

MISTAKE #9. SLEEPING ALL DAY

Some people spend their entire day (or a major part of it) 'sleeping away their fast'. Is this what is really required of us during this noble month? These people also are missing the purpose of fasting and are slaves to their desires of comfort and ease. They cannot 'bear' to be awake and face a little hunger or exert a little self-control. For a fasting person to spend most of the day asleep is nothing but, negligence on his part.
In fact Ramadan is the month of reciting The Quran and feeding the poor.

MISTAKE #10. NOT FASTING BECAUSE OF WORK OR EXAMS

Fasting in Ramadanis Fard, for all sane Muslims. Exams or work is NOT one of the excuses allowed by the Shari'ah to fast. You can do your studying and revision at night if it is too hard to do that during the day.
Allah says in The Quran 2:286, "Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear."

Also remember that pleasing and obeying Allah is much more important than 'good grades'. Besides, if you will fulfil your obligation to fast, even if you have to study, Allah will make it easy for you and help you in everything you do.

Quran 65 : 2-3 says, "Whosoever fears Allah, He will appoint for him a way out and provide for him from where he does not expect, Allah is Sufficient for whosoever puts his trust in Him."

MISTAKE #11. WASTING TIME

The month of Ramadan is a precious, precious time. Before we know it, this month of mercy and forgiveness will be over, we should try and spend every moment possible in the worship of Allah so that we can make the most of this blessing. However, there are some of us who waste away their day playing video games, or worse still, watching TV, movies or even listening to music.

A Muslim does not have any time to waste. The Qur'an is clear is stating that when we are brought to life once again (in Qiyamah), we will feel as if we stayed in this world only for an evening or a morning. See Quran 79:46

MISTAKE #12. NOT GIVING UP EVIL WHILE FASTING MAKES YOUR FAST VOID

Some of us fast but do not give up lying, cursing, fighting, backbiting, etc. and some of us fast but do not give up cheating, stealing, dealing in haraam, etc. and all kinds of impermissible things without realizing that the purpose of fasting is to not stay away from food and drink; rather the aim behind it is to fear Allah.

It must be noted that in Ramadan or otherwise, all these acts are forbidden. If you particularly do it in Ramadan, it nullifies your fast. Yes! For instance if you backbite while fasting in Ramadan, it nullifies your fast.

Quran 2:183 says, "O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious/righteous."

The Prophet (PBUH) said: "Whoever does not give up false speech and acting upon it, and ignorance, Allah has no need of him giving up his food and drink." (Sahih Bukhari 1903, 6057)

One should also protect himself from the "zina of eyes". Zina means adultery/fornication. So Zina of eyes would mean looking at those things that are forbidden; in this case would be looking at non-mahram women in a way that will arouse one's interest. While fasting if a man gets aroused looking at a non-mahram woman, then his fast is nullified. Hence The Quran commands men to lower their gaze to preserve their chastity. By the way, this commandment is not just for Ramadan but men should practice this throughout the year.

"Allah knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the breasts conceal." ~ Quran 40:19

MISTAKE #13. SMOKING

Smoking is forbidden in Islam whether during Ramadan or outside of it, as it is one of evil things. And this includes ALL kinds of 'smoking material'. Example: cigars, cigarettes, pipes, Sheesha, hookah etc.
Quran 7:157 says, "He allows them as lawful At Tayyibaat (all good and lawful things), and prohibits them as unlawful Al Khabaa'ith (all evil and unlawful things)."

It is harmful, not only to the one smoking, but also to the ones around him. It is also a means of wasting ones wealth. The Prophet (pbuh) said: "There should be no harming or reciprocating harm." ~ Ibn Majah 2340. This is especially true during fasting and it invalidates the fast. (Fatwa-Ibn 'Uthaymeen)

MISTAKE #14. STOPPING SUHOOR AT "IMSAAK"

Some people stop eating Suhoor 10-15 minutes earlier than the time of Fajr to observe 'Imsaak'.

Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen (RAHIMAHULLAH) said: "This is a kind of bid'ah (innovation) which has no basis in the Sunnah. Rather the Sunnah is to do the opposite. Allah (SWT) allows us to eat until dawn.”
Quran 2:187 says, "… and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)."
And the Prophet (PBUH) said: "…eat and drink until you hear the adhaan of Ibn Umm Maktoom, for he does not give the adhaan until dawn comes." ~ Bukhari 1919 and Muslim 1092

MISTAKE #15. DELAYING BREAKING FAST

Some people wait until the adhaan finishes or even several minutes after that, just to be 'on the safe side'. However, the Sunnah is to hasten to break the fast, which means breaking fast whenever the adhaan starts, right after the sun has set. Aisha (ra) said: "This is what the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) used to do." (Sahih Muslim)

The Prophet (pbuh) said: "The people will continue to prosper so long as they hasten to break the fast." ~ Bukhari 1957; Muslim 1098

Determine to the best of your ability, the accuracy of your clock, calendar, etc. and then have tawakkul on Allah and break your fast exactly on time.

MISTAKE #16. EATING CONTINUOUSLY UNTIL THE TIME FOR MAGHRIB IS UP

Some people put so much food in their plates when breaking their fast and continue eating, enjoying dessert, drinking tea, etc., until they deliberately miss Maghrib. That is obviously not right.

The Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) was once he broke his fast with some dates, he would hasten for the Magrib Salah.

Once you are done with the prayer, you can always go back and eat some more if you wish.

MISTAKE #17. MISSING THE GOLDEN CHANCE OF HAVING YOUR DU'A ACCEPTED

The prayer of the fasting person is guaranteed to be accepted at the time of breaking fast. The Prophet (pbuh) said: "Three prayers are not rejected: the prayer of a father, the prayer of a fasting person, and the prayer of a traveller." ~ Al-Bayhaqi, 3/345

Instead of sitting down and making Dua at this precious time, some people forego this beautiful chance, and are too busy frying samosas, talking, setting the food, filling their plates and glasses, etc. Think about it, is food more important than the chance to have your sins forgiven or the fulfillment of your Duas.

MISTAKE #18. FASTING AND NOT WEARING HIJAB (AT LEAST)

Not wearing the Hijab is a major sin as it is obligatory for Muslim women. See Quran 24:31 and Quran 33:59. So, fasting and not wearing Hijab certainly takes away enormously from the rewards of fasting, even if does not invalidate it.

Highly recommend to read the article on Why positive jealousy is good for men towards their women to understand this subject better. It is important to know the following:

Allah has a sense of Ghirah (self-respect or protective jealousy), and Allah's sense of Ghirah is provoked when a believer does something which Allah has prohibited (like adultery or open display of one’s beauty) ~ Bukhari 67/156

The Prophet (pbuh) also said, "Allah does not accept the prayer of a woman who has reached puberty unless she wears a hijab." ~ Abu Dawud 2/641 ... This ruling is in general and not just limited to Ramadan.

MISTAKE #19. MIXING FASTING AND DIETING

Do not make the mistake of fasting with the intention to diet. That is one of the biggest mistakes some of us make (especially sisters). Fasting is an act of worship and can only be for the sake of Allah alone. Always remember that 'niyaat' (intention) plays the most important part of a Muslim.

A believer will be rewarded or punished based on his intention. So if dieting is the intention then you will not get any reward from Allah.

The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Allah said, 'All the deeds of Adam's sons (people) are for them, except fasting which is for Me, and I will give the reward for it.' ~ Bukhari 30/14

Having the right intention is essential.

MISTAKE #20. FIGHTING OVER THE NUMBER OF RAKA'AH IN TARAWEEH

There is no specific number of rak'ahs for Taraweeh prayer, rather it is permissible to do a little or a lot. Both 8 and 20 are okay.
Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen (ra) said: "No one should be denounced for praying eleven or twenty-three (raka'ah), because the matter is broader in scope than that, Praise be to Allah."

More on this difference can be found here. The bottom-line is it is ok to have difference of opinion but that should NOT cause division in the Muslim ummah. Differences within the ummah existed at the time of the Sahaabah, yet they remained united . That's important!

On the other note our Prophet (pbuh) guarantees us a house in paradise for the one who gives up arguing, even if the person is right. This is powerful statement, and we must, at all cost, stay united and love each other just for the sake of Allah.

MISTAKE #21. PRAYING ONLY ON THE NIGHT OF 27th OF RAMADAN

Some people pray ONLY on the 27th night to seek Lailat ul-Qadr, neglecting all other odd nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan.
The Prophet (pbuh) said: "Seek Lailat ul-Qadr among the odd numbered nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan (means 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th and 29th)." ~ Bukhari 1913; Muslim 1169.

One of the most virtuous night is 29th, the night before Eid (if the new moon is sighted on the night of 29th). Many are out in the markets or streets to shop. Since Lailat ul-Qadr is likely to be on an odd night before Eid, it is mustahab to be engaged in prayer and other acts of worship.

MISTAKE #22. WASTING THE LAST PART OF RAMADAN PREPARING FOR EID

Some people waste the entire last 10 days of Ramadan preparing for Eid, shopping and frequenting malls, etc. neglecting Ibadah and Lailatul Qadr. The Prophet (pbuh) used to strive the hardest during the last ten days of Ramadan in worship. (Musnad Ahmad, Sahih Muslim)

In fact the Salaf would wind-up all the worldly affairs in Shaaban, so that they can focus on Quran and Ibadah in the month of Ramadan. The last ashra is the most crucial part of the holy month. Be on guard!

Buy whatever you need for Eid before Ramadan so that you can utilize the time in Ramadan to the maximum, in shaa Allaah.

Aisha (ra) said: "When the (last) ten nights began, the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) would tighten his waist-wrapper (i.e., strive hard in worship or refrain from intimacy with his wives), stay awake at night and wake his family." ~ Bukhari 1920 and Muslim 1174

Keep the focus this Ramadan.

To conclude ...

It is not for a believer, man or a woman, to exercise their choice in their affairs, when Allah and His Messenger have decided on a matter. ~ Qur'an 33:36

May Allah (SWT) give us hidayaah to spend quality time in Ramadan the way our Prophet (pbuh) and each Sahaabah did.

May Allah (SWT) further guide us and give us the best in this world and in the Hereafter, protect us from torments of the fire as well as protect us from every disease or plague and heal the affected ones, Aamin.

Religion / Who Is A Pious Muslimah??? by abat4real37(f): 7:13am On May 01, 2020
Introduction

Firstly, I will start by defining the key word there which is "PIOUS"...This word simply means exhibiting piety, i.e God's fearing, Righteous, and Muslimah is a Muslim Sister as we all know. In a nutshell, a pious Muslimah simply means "A God fearing Muslim Sister, or a Righteous Muslim Sister.
Now, to our topic, "WHO IS A PIOUS MUSLIMAH"...that is who is a God fearing Muslim Sister A righteous Muslimah. Before one can attain piety i.e being a pious Muslimah...one must possess some qualities or have some attributes 1.Taqwa
2. Iman
3. Solat
4. Zakat
5. Sawm(Fasting)
6. Amalu sooliha(righteous deeds)
7. U must b chaste and modest
...very very important
8. Must have good character
Dress modestly and decently. And so many other reasons.
Firstly, believing in the 5pillars of Islam which I will start from Iman
Iman/taqwa...simply means believing in Allah (Swt) him and him alone. The first way of attaining piety or being a pious Muslimah is to believe in the 5pillars of Islam, starting from Iman and it's articles...which means having strong faith in Allah, his prophet, angel, books, d day of judgement, Destiny (the good and bad)
.Allah (SWT) says in Q2:285...
[4/29, 9:41 PM] +234 903 938 4071: ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَٰٓئِكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَاۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ
The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no distinction between any of His messengers." And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination..This verse is telling us that all the messangers of Allah believed in what was revealed to them, and so have the believers too, we should believe in all what Allah has sent to us: As a pious Muslimah, you must have faith in Allah, have taqwa in him, believe dat everything comes from him alone, and no one except him. You must not associate any partner with Allah SWT, no matter what the condition is, stay firm with him, Do not worship any Creator either secretly or openly
If truly you want to meet Ur Lord on the day of judgement as a righteous being,then you MUST NOT associate anything with him: Allah says in the holy Qur'an, Q18:110: he says:
قُلۡ إِنَّمَآ أَنَا۠ بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُكُمۡ يُوحَىٰٓ إِلَىَّ أَنَّمَآ إِلَٰهُكُمۡ إِلَٰهٌ وَٰحِدٌۖ فَمَن كَانَ يَرۡجُواْ لِقَآءَ رَبِّهِۦ فَلۡيَعۡمَلۡ عَمَلًا صَٰلِحًا وَلَا يُشۡرِكۡ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِۦٓ أَحَدًۢا
Meaning:
Say, "I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord - let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone."...
The above verse is telling us that if you want to meet Allah on the day of judgement, then you have to be righteous, and don't associate any thing with him. May Allah make it easy for us and make us firm on his path till d day of judgement....Aameen

Moving on to the next quality of a pious Muslimah. A pious Muslimah is the type that observes her 5 times daily prayer regularly and at the accurate time, not the type that postpones or neglect solat, Allah says in tje holy Quran: 4:103 : إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ كَانَتۡ عَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ کِتَابَاً مَوْقُتَاً،
meaning: indeed, prayer has been decreed on the believers, a decree of specified time. This verse is laying emphasy on how important our solah is, it's not just praying, but praying at the right time and with all mind of submission to Allah. Most of us find it difficult to pray at the right time, we merge everything together, which is very bad
NOTE:
The 5 times daily prayer is very compulsory for every Muslim, that is what makes u a Muslim: Laa faariq bayna-l- Muslim Wal kaafir illa bi solaat,
meaning: there is no different between a Muslim & a disbeliever except with solat, that means, if u don't pray, you are a disbeliever: Let me quickly tell us part of the importance of solat.There are different things that solat will do for you, solat takes away all your bad attitudes, it makes you more closer to your Creator, and makes you attain piety, especially the kiyaamu layli ...tahajjud...this is the time that Allah answer prayers most, because Allah is pleased with whoever abandon his/her comfort bed and pray to him during the night, during the time that all doors were closed. Especially during dis holy month of Ramadan, where all our good deeds are multiplied

The prophet (SAW) Says in one of his Hadith, Allah says: maa qaama laylan imaana wa ihtisahbah, gufira llahu máa taaqodamo min dhanbih. meaning; whoever wakes up in d midnight to pray with all heart of faith and total submission to d will of Allah, Allah will forgive him all his sin...

And lastly among d few importance of solat that I will mention. solat is THE key to Jannah..."As- solatu miftaul-jannah"...
Subhanallah. This means ifyou observe your prayer regularly and at d specific time with all heart of submission to Allah, you have already Gained your key to Jannah....May Almighty Allah make it easy for us, and make us pray till our last day on the qiyama. And may he accept all our worship as act of Ibaadah and reward us abundantly. Amin....
A pious Muslimah must also be the type that fast, especially during the month of Ramadan, Fasting is one of the things that makes you attain piety, the prophet SAW says in his Hadith: Allah says: Maa sooma Ramadan, ihmaana wah tisaaban, gufira llahu maa taqadama min dhanbih" meaning anyone day fast with Faith and all heart of submission to Allah, Allah will forgive him/her all his/her sins"

A pious Muslimah must be guarding all wjat belongs to her and her husband (the meaning of dis is her private part) she must b modest, chaste, dignified, she must not have sex with any other man when her husband is not around, as Allah (SWT) has command us in the holy Qur'an, Surat Nisai, Q4:34, Allah says: فَٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتُ قَٰنِتَٰتٌ حَٰفِظَٰتٌ لِّلۡغَيۡبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُۚ
Meaning: "So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard".
A pious Muslimah must not be the wayward type, she must not be the type that jumps from one man to another, this is very common nowadays, you will see one sister dating 3-4 brothers at the same time...scarcely can we find 20% virgins, ladies loose their virginity at a tender age before getting married for one reason or the other, a pride dat should be protected and guarded, has now become a worthless thing, virginity of a lady is whatt makes her a complete Lady, without it, your value is incomplete .....

A pious Muslimah must be the obedient type both to her husband, parent, and all those that have authority over her, be it your boss, your ustadhs, your lecturers/ teachers in school, your elderly ones...Allah says in the holy Qur'an: Q4:59, يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡۖ
Meaning:
"O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you" Another great quality of a pious Muslimah or way of attaining piety is by doing righteous deeds, b good to ur families, neighbours, closed one
Allah says in d Qur'an Q 2:82 وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ
وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ أُوْلَٰٓئِكَ أَصۡحَٰبُ ٱلۡجَنَّةِۖ هُمۡ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ
Meaning: Al-Baqarah 2:83
But they who believe and do righteous deeds - those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.
Part of the quality of a pious Muslimah is that you must have a good relationship with the people around you , you must always utter a good and peaceful statement, "qaolan sadeedan, wa qaolan ma'aruufa"
you must not be rude, & you must not be the type dat utter foul language. many single sisters complain that they don't have a good husband or a good fiance, did you yourself check your behaviour? , Did you possess a good character dat can entiles brothers, Remember "ur attitude determines ur attitude
"Conclusively, be of d best conduct, possess all the qualities of a pious Muslimah as described by Allah SWT in the holy Qur'an, suratul Ahzab, Q33:35, Where you will find d full list of those qualities loved by Allah, Allah Says: إِنَّ ٱلۡمُسۡلِمِينَ وَٱلۡمُسۡلِمَٰتِ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَٰتِ وَٱلۡقَٰنِتِينَ وَٱلۡقَٰنِتَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ وَٱلصَّٰدِقَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ وَٱلصَّٰبِرَٰتِ وَٱلۡخَٰشِعِينَ وَٱلۡخَٰشِعَٰتِ وَٱلۡمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَٱلۡمُتَصَدِّقَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰٓئِمِينَ وَٱلصَّٰٓئِمَٰتِ وَٱلۡحَٰفِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمۡ وَٱلۡحَٰفِظَٰتِ وَٱلذَّٰكِرِينَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَٱلذَّٰكِرَٰتِ أَعَدَّ ٱللَّهُ لَهُم مَّغۡفِرَةً وَأَجۡرًا عَظِيمًا
Meaning:
"Indeed, the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so - for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward".
All these are the qualities a pious Muslim/ Muslimah must have. So, my dear sisters in Islam, possess the following qualities: 1) Muslim woman,
2) Devout woman,
3) believing woman
4) true woman
5) woman who is patient and constant
6) woman who humbles herself
7) woman who gives charity
cool woman who fasts and denies herself
9) woman who guards her chastity
10) woman who engages much in Allah's praise...
Let ur attitude speaks for you,
let ur dressing defines you and your Deen,
Let ur utterances describe Islam,
Let people see you as a pious Muslimah and a true ambassador of Islam. I'm sure, if any sister possess all these qualities, she will b d choice of every brothers
Let's emulate the characters of d pious Muslim women in Islam..d likes of Aishah, rodiyallahu anha,
Asia, the wife of firaoun,
Maryam, the mother of Jesus, khadeejah, d prophet of Muhammad SAW, Zaynab the daughter of Muhammad SAW and Faatimah, the only survivor of Rosulullahi SAW...
We pray Almighty Allah ease our affairs, make us the best woman for our spouses, grant the singles sisters here the best brother that will be the coolness of their eyes
And reward all our jihad with the best jannah, Make us a Muslim till the last day of resurrection

Religion / Who Is A Pious Muslimah??? by abat4real37(f): 7:00am On May 01, 2020
Introduction

Firstly, I will start by defining the key word there which is "PIOUS"...This word simply means exhibiting piety, i.e God's fearing, Righteous, and Muslimah is a Muslim Sister as we all know. In a nutshell, a pious Muslimah simply means "A God fearing Muslim Sister, or a Righteous Muslim Sister.
Now, to our topic, "WHO IS A PIOUS MUSLIMAH"...dat is who is a God fearing Muslim Sister A righteous Muslimah. Before one can attain piety i.e being a pious Muslimah...one must possess some qualities or have some attributes 1.Taqwa
2. Iman
3. Solat
4. Zakat
5. Sawm(Fasting)
6. Amalu sooliha(righteous deeds)
7. U must b chaste and modest
...very very important
8. Must have good character
Dress modestly and decently. And so many other reasons.
Firstly, believing in the 5pillars of Islam which I will start from Iman
Iman/taqwa...simply means believing in Allah (Swt) him and him alone. The first way of attaining piety or being a pious Muslimah is to believe in the 5pillars of Islam, starting from Iman and it's articles...which means having strong faith in Allah, his prophet, angel, books, d day of judgement, Destiny (the good and bad)
.Allah (SWT) says in Q2:285...
[4/29, 9:41 PM] +234 903 938 4071: ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَٰٓئِكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَاۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ
The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no distinction between any of His messengers." And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination..This verse is telling us that d all d messangers of Allah believed in wot was revealed to them, and so have d believers too, we should believe in all wot Allah has sent to us: As a pious Muslimah, u must have faith in Allah, have taqwa in him, believe dat everything comes from him alone, and no one except him. U must not associate any partner with Allah SWT, no matter wot d condition is, stay firm with him, Do not worship any Creator either secretly or openly
If truly u want to meet Ur Lord on the day of judgement as a righteous being,den u MUST NOT associate anything with him: Allah says in the holy Qur'an, Q18:110: he says:
قُلۡ إِنَّمَآ أَنَا۠ بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُكُمۡ يُوحَىٰٓ إِلَىَّ أَنَّمَآ إِلَٰهُكُمۡ إِلَٰهٌ وَٰحِدٌۖ فَمَن كَانَ يَرۡجُواْ لِقَآءَ رَبِّهِۦ فَلۡيَعۡمَلۡ عَمَلًا صَٰلِحًا وَلَا يُشۡرِكۡ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِۦٓ أَحَدًۢا
Meaning:
Say, "I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord - let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone."...
D above verse is telling us dat if u wanna meet Allah on d day of judgement, den u have to be righteous, and don't associate any thing with him. May Allah make it easy for us and make us firm on his path till d day of judgement....Aameen

Moving on to d next quality of a pious Muslimah. A pious Muslimah is d type dat observes her 5 times daily prayer regularly and at d accurate time, not d type dt postpones or neglect solat, Allah says in d holy Quran: 4:103 : إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ كَانَتۡ عَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ کِتَابَاً مَوْقُتَاً،
meaning: indeed, prayer has been decreed on the believers, a decree of specified time. This verse is laying emphasy on how important our solah is, it's not just praying, but praying at d right time and with all mind of submission to Allah. Most of us find it difficult to pray at d right time, we merge everything together, which is very bad
NOTE:
The 5 times daily prayer is very compulsory for every Muslim, dat is wot makes u a Muslim: Laa faariq bayna-l- Muslim Wal kaafir illa bi solaat,
meaning: there is no different btw a Muslim & a disbeliever except with solat, dat means, if u don't pray, you are a disbeliever: Let me quickly tell us part of d importance of solat.There are different things dat solat will do for you, solat takes away all ur bad attitudes, it makes u more closer to ur Creator, and makes you attain piety, especially d kiyaamu layli ...tahajjud...dis is d time dat Allah answer prayers most, cos Allah is pleased wt whoever abandon his/her comfort bed and pray to him during d night, during d time dat all doors were closed. Especially during dis holy month of Ramadan, where all our good deeds are multiplied

The prophet (SAW) Says in one of his Hadith, Allah says: maa qaama laylan imaana wa ihtisahbah, gufira llahu máa taaqodamo min dhanbih. meaning; whoever wakes up in d midnight to pray with all heart of faith and total submission to d will of Allah, Allah will forgive him all his sin...

And lastly among d few importance of solat dat I will mention. solat is d key to Jannah..."As- solatu miftaul-jannah"...
Subhanallah. Dis means if u observe ur prayer regularly and at d specific time with all heart of submission to Allah, u have already Gained ur key to Jannah....May Almighty Allah make it easy for us, and make us pray till our last day on the qiyama. And may he accept all our worship as act of Ibaadah and reward us abundantly. Amin....
A pious Muslimah must also be d type that fast, especially during the month of Ramadan, Fasting is one of the things that makes you attain piety, the prophet SAW says in his Hadith: Allah says: Maa sooma Ramadan, ihmaana wah tisaaban, gufira llahu maa taqadama min dhanbih" meaning anyone day fast with Faith and all heart of submission to Allah, Allah will forgive him/her all his/her sins"

A pious Muslimah must be guarding all wot belongs to her and her husband (the meaning of dis is her private part) she must b modest, chaste, dignified, she must not have sex with any other man when her husband is not around, as Allah (SWT) has command us in the holy Qur'an, Surat Nisai, Q4:34, Allah says: فَٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتُ قَٰنِتَٰتٌ حَٰفِظَٰتٌ لِّلۡغَيۡبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُۚ
Meaning: "So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard".
A pious Muslimah must not b d wayward type, she must not b d type dat jumps from one man to anoda, dis is very common nowadays, you will see one sister dating 3-4 brothers at d same time...scarcely can we find 20% virgins, ladies loose their virginity at a tender age before getting married for one reason or the other, a pride dat should b protected and guarded, has now become a worthless thing, virginity of a lady is wot makes her a complete Lady, without it, ur value is incomplete .....

A pious Muslimah must b d obedient type both to her husband, parent, and all those that have authority over her, be it your boss, your ustadhs, your lecturers/ teachers in school, your elderly ones...Allah says in the holy Qur'an: Q4:59, يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡۖ
Meaning:
"O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you" Another great quality of a pious Muslimah or way of attaining piety is by doing righteous deeds, b good to ur families, neighbours, closed one
Allah says in d Qur'an Q 2:82 وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ

Meaning: Al-Baqarah 2:83
But they who believe and do righteous deeds - those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.

"Conclusively, be of d best conduct, possess all the qualities of a pious Muslimah as described by Allah SWT in the holy Qur'an, suratul Ahzab, Q33:35, Where you will find d full list of those qualities loved by Allah, Allah Says: إِنَّ ٱلۡمُسۡلِمِينَ وَٱلۡمُسۡلِمَٰتِ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَٰتِ وَٱلۡقَٰنِتِينَ وَٱلۡقَٰنِتَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ وَٱلصَّٰدِقَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ وَٱلصَّٰبِرَٰتِ وَٱلۡخَٰشِعِينَ وَٱلۡخَٰشِعَٰتِ وَٱلۡمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَٱلۡمُتَصَدِّقَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰٓئِمِينَ وَٱلصَّٰٓئِمَٰتِ وَٱلۡحَٰفِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمۡ وَٱلۡحَٰفِظَٰتِ وَٱلذَّٰكِرِينَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَٱلذَّٰكِرَٰتِ أَعَدَّ ٱللَّهُ لَهُم مَّغۡفِرَةً وَأَجۡرًا عَظِيمًا
Meaning:
"Indeed, the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so - for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward".
All these are the qualities a pious Muslim/ Muslimah must have. So, my dear sisters in Islam, possess the following qualities: 1) Muslim woman,

3) believing woman
4) true woman
5) woman who is patient and constant
