Family Importance

Family is the base for building a society, and its safety represents the strength of that society. Divorce and separation or division in a family weakens and then destroys the society. You may study the American society and the family situation within it, to conclude the unsure future of this nation.

For that, Islam put forth few simple rules that if we live by it, we assure the safety of the Muslim family. The man in the family is the provider for it where the woman is responsible for managing here household. The prophet (PBUH) said (You are all responsible and everyone is asked about his responsibility). Thus, the man must provide for his wife and children, and further, the woman is responsible for safe keeping here household.

In Islam, divorce is the least desirable among that which is permitted and put very specific conditions for it to keep the unity of the Muslim family. Furthermore, Islam considered marriage to be a holy union between a man and a woman who complete each other, out of marriage children are born into a happy and a uncontaminated atmosphere. Islam ordained hard punishment for the sin of adultery because adultery is the destroyer of the family unity and then the society and furthermore the nation.

Dear brothers in Islam, I would like to remind you with what assures the family unity and if we live by it and teach to our children we can build a distinguished Islamic society in America. Allah the almighty says {O, ye who believe save yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (from executing) the commands they receive from Allah, but do (precisely) what they are commanded}

Muslim Woman's Dress

In Islam, the woman's dress is here dress during prayers (SALAT), it is a dress which covers her body. Allah the Almighty says {…They should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over bosoms…}. The prophet (PBUH) said, counseling Asma'a the daughter of Abu Bakkur, {O' Asma'a, when a woman reaches maturity, she is no longer allowed to revel more than this and this, and he (PBUH) pointed to his face and hands}

It is forbidden for a woman to wear shorts, short skirts, or mini shirts because they revel parts of her body other than what is stated above. The wearing of shorts is noticed mostly among student including Muslim students.

It is also forbidden for a woman to wear any revealing clothes. The prophet (PBUH) described those women as they are dressed but not, and he has not seen them yet. The prophet (PBUH) said (Two groups are in the hell fire but I have not seen them yet: First, those who are carrying whips resembling the cow's tail, hitting people with it. Second, women who are dressed but reveling their bodies as they are not dressed… The two groups never enter paradise)

The relation between a Muslim Woman and Man what relation!!!

In Islam there is not a relation between a man and a woman except in marriage. It is my advice that you explain to your children that in Islam, There is no relation, friendship, or boyfriend relation between the two sexes. Such relations are highly prohibited and will only lead into sadness and regret. Allah the Almighty says {They should be chaste (pure), not lustful, nor taking paramours} and he also said {Chastity, not lewdness (lust), Nor secret intrigues}.

Teach your children that, as Muslims, our universal greeting is "PEACE UPON YOU", but, as for greeting the other sex with hugs and kisses, that is not part of Islam and it is not absolutely forbidden.

Furthermore, telephones are necessary when you need to reach someone for an important question and answering the question can be quick and direct. As for a Muslim to stay on the phone for an hour talking any so many senseless directions especially among the teenagers of the Muslim children, that is the leader to wrong and to the diversion from Islamic behavior.

It is forbidden for a woman to be alone with a man who is not a blood relative. The prophet (PBUH) said {When a man is alone with a woman (who is not a blood relative), satin will be the third among them} and he also said {beware entering women houses when they are alone}

So, teach your children this part of you religion and do not allow your sons or daughters to be with other children of the opposite sex even if they are studying together.

The prophet (BPUH) said {No man can be alone with a woman, an immediate blood relative should be among them}.

Then, being alone with the opposite sex is forbidden. And, do not enter a woman house unless her son or an immediate blood relative is in the house. If reach the house along with several guest, it is permitted for the group to enter the house and wait for the man of the house.

In the case of the workplace, if a man and a woman have to work alone in the same room, they should leave the door open to avoid any doubts.


Fear Allah and obey his orders, keep your family safe by following Allah's orders.

1. Have your Muslim wives and your children dress according to the Islamic code of dress.

2. Do no let your children leave the house wearing shorts or short shirts which revels their bodies.

3. It is forbidden for a woman to leave her house wearing reveling clothes.

4. Our universal Greeting is "PEACE BE UPON YOU" and it is forbidden to hug and kiss as part of the greeting.

5. There is not a relation between a man and woman except in marriage. In Islam, there is no such things as boyfriend or girlfriend.

6. It is forbidden for a man and a woman to be alone without an immediate blood relative.

7. Teach your children that the telephone is a tool which is used for question and answer; furthermore, it is not a tool to talk in many nonsense subjects which lead to nowhere.

The prophet (PBUH) said { Good morals is the best gift a parent can give to his child}
