“Bint Muhammad (S.A.W): Ruqayyah”

Ruqayyah (R.A) was the second daughter of Nabi (S.A.W) and Khadija (R.A). She (R.A) was also born before the beginning of Islam, 3 years after the birth of Zaynab (R.A), when Nabi (S.A.W) was 33 years old. When Ruqayyah reached marriageable age, Abu Lahab approached Nabi (S.A.W) and asked for her to wed his son, […]

“Don’t be a smarty pants”

Muslims are supposed to walk with their heads lowered. Trying to adhere to said Sunnah leads one to take notice of three particular details; the floor (Tsk, they just don’t shine it like they used to anymore), your shoes (Please stop it with the crocs. Please) and the length of your pants. The last one […]

“Bint Muhammad (S.A.W): Zaynab”

Zaynab (R.A) was married to the son of her maternal aunt, Halaalah bint Khuwaylid. When Abu Al-Aas ibn Rabi’ asked for her hand in marriage, Nabi (S.A.W) told him that the decision was Zaynab (R.A)’s. Her answer was a blush and smile. The couple lived a happy life together. They had two children, Ali and […]

Muslim women are recognized by our hijab and niqaab. A Muslim man should be known by his beard. Ibn Umar (R.A) narrates that Nabi […]

“Inform me about His (S.A.W)’s children”

According to the majority of traditions, Nabi (S.A.W) had 7 children; 3 sons and 4 daughters. Of the 7, 2 of the sons and all 4 daughters were born to Khadija bint Khuwaylid (R.A). The last son was born to Maria Qibtiya (R.A.). Qasim, the first son of our Rasoolullah (S.A.W) and Khadija (R.A.), is […]

“I’ve got 99 problems, but being rich isn’t one”

Before my brother decides to go on a scavenger hunt through my sock drawer, allow me to clarify that I refer not to my monetary situation. You’ll think I put that in for fun, but when he was about 4 or 5 years of age (he’s the laatlammejie- born after somewhat 7 to 8 years), he used to […]
