“Do not abuse my Companions, for if any of you were to spend gold equal to (mountain of) Uhud in charity, it would not equal a handful of one of them or even half of that”[Bukhari, Muslim].
“Whoever abuses my Companions, upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people”[Saheeh, At-Tabarani].
Abdullah bin Masood Radhiyallahu Anhu has stated:
"Verily Allah looked into the hearts of his servants. Thus He selected Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam). He sent him with his message and He chose him out of his perfect knowledge. Then Allah again looked into the hearts of His servants and He chose the companions of His Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) . He made them the helpers of His Deen and the ministers of His Nabi(sallallahu alayhi wasallam)." [Musnad Abi Dawud]
"When Allah loves the people of a household, He introduces kindness among them.” (Ibn Abi al-Dunya; Sahih al-Jami)
Kindness amongst husband and wife, brothers and sisters, in-laws and other household people is a sure sign that Allah Loves them. On the other hand, bickering and fighting, arguing and bitterness, “silent treatment” and gossiping are a sure sign that Allah Ta’ala is unhappy with that household.
When Allah Paak is unhappy, no matter how delicious the food may be and no matter how exciting the TV program may be, it will not bring happiness into the heart.
When Allah Paak is unhappy, no matter how huge the mansion may be, there is no true love between a husband and a wife.At the slightest provocation, they spit and are split apart.
When Allah Paak is unhappy, then no holidays at a beach front hotel can bring tranquillity to the heart — it is but just band aids to a serious problem.
Sin does not glue people’s hearts together. Rather it is obedience unto Allah.
Does Allah Paak not proclaim:
“Verily those who bring Imaan and do good deeds, RAHMAAN will create LOVE AMONGST THEM” (Surah Maryam)
Since time immemorial a major crime is being committed against humanity in India and other Indian subcontinent countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, etc. This crime is the Dowry or the Dahej system. It is a system in which durable goods, cash, and real or movable property that the bride's family gives to the bridegroom, his parents, or his relatives as a condition of the marriage. Thus, along with the bride, the bridegroom’s family receives cash and gifts like jewellery, motor vehicles, electrical appliances, furniture, bedding, crockery, utensils and other household items.
The custom in most cases puts great financial burden on the brides’ families and the parents have to spend every single penny of their savings on the dowry of their daughters. Many families have to borrow money at a very high interest rate and they go on striving throughout their lives to pay back the debts.
The dowry system is not a mere evil; it is a Mother of many evils. It is known to have led people to commit many crimes against women. The predominant types of dowry crimes relate to cruelty (which includes emotional torture and harassment) and domestic violence including physical and sexual assaults.

"A man asked Ali Radiallahu Anhu: "Which month do you order me to fast after the month of Ramadan?' He said to him, 'I have not heard anyone ask this except for a man whom I heard asking the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) while I was sitting with him. He said: "O Messenger of Allah! (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) Which month do you order me to fast after the month of Ramadan?" He said: "If you will fast after the month of Ramadan, then fast Al-Muharram, for indeed it is Allah's month in which there is a day that Allah accepted the repentance of a people, and in which He accepts the repentance of other people."
