Description from the publisher:
An excellent book discussing the foundation of an Islamic household. The author addresses issues that are relevant to the majority of the Muslims, such as the importance of choosing a righteous spouse, making your home a place for the remembrance of Allah, spreading kindness in the home, teaching good manners, discussing some of the evils present in the home, learning the Islamic rulings with regard to houses, creating an atmosphere of faith in the home, resisting bad manners in the home, choosing a good location and design of home, how to discipline children which may be more effective than physical punishment and the books that we should read and much more.
Putting things right in the home is a great trust and huge responsibility which every Muslim man and woman should undertake as Allah's commands; they should run the affairs of their homes in accordance with the rules set out by Allah.
One of the ways of achieving this is ridding the home of evil things. The author highlights some evil things that actually happen in some homes and that have become tools of destruction for the nests in which the future generations of the Muslim ummah are being raised.
How many Muslim homes today are dead because there is no remembrance of Allah, what must they be like when all that is heard therein is the music of Shaytan with instruments and singing, and backbiting, slander, and gossip? What must they be like when they are filled with evil and sin?
An ideal learning and teaching guide, to read with family and friends.
