The Noble Shaykh ‘Abdullah an-Najmi (May Allah Preserve Him) from the mashaayikh of Jeezan, Saudi Arabia is a student of Ash-Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmi (rahimahullah) and Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee (rahimahullah).
With Ramadhaan just moments away, Muslims around the world are preparing for this tremendous month, hoping and intending to make the most of it. Every year sisters in particular request advice on how to capitalize on the rewards available in this opportune time while balancing their household duties.
According to Shaykh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee (hafidhahullah), “…the Muslim Women increases in worship. That is because when the women strives in the service of her husband and the members of her household and she prepares food for them that which will suffice them, then she is in obedience to Allah, ‘Azza wa Jall, provided that she seeks the reward from Allah. Therefore, in this is a reward for her and also an increasement for her good deeds. And it is befitting for the Muslim Women when she is preparing the food that she busies her tongue with the remembrance of Allah. So while she is cooking she glorifies Allah, while she is cooking she is saying tahleel (Laa ilaaha illa Allah – None has the right to be worshipped except Allah), while she is cooking she is remembering Allah and in that she will have a tremendous reward. (Like this) preparing food will never divert her from the obedience of her Lord, Glorified is He, during the day of Ramadhaan. So congratulations to the Muslim Women who services her husband and the members of her household and she seeks the reward from Allah, ‘Azza wa Jall, and by that she does not become heedless concerning the remembrance of Allah and she performs what she is capable of doing from the different acts of worship during the day of Ramadhaan. For indeed she has achieved a great success.” [The Muslim Woman Increases More in Worship Than The Man in Ramadhaan By Shaykh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee ]
Shaykh ‘Abdullah an-Najmi (hafidhahullah) will expound more on this topic and offer some points of advice to our sisters on how they can maximize the benefits of Ramadhaan.
We ask Allah to make us from those who truly benefit from this blessed month and we seek refuge in Him from being amongst the losers.
