Angels and Jinn: A Guide for Muslim Moms 🧡💫
Hello lovely moms out there! Have you ever pondered about the unseen entities mentioned in our faith—angels and jinn? How do they relate to our role as mothers and caretakers? 🤔 Let’s dive in!
The Beautiful Angels 🌟
The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) described angels as creatures made from light, with wings, created to carry out the divine commands. They are constantly around us, recording our actions and guarding us. Yes, you read it right! Also, when we intend to do evil, angels say to Allaah: “That man intends to do evil.” But Allah, being more vigilant, says, “Watch him. If he commits evil, record it in kind; but if he abandons it, record for him one good deed. For surely he gave it up for My sake.” ✍️
Quoting the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), Anas ibn Maalik reported: “Allaah has appointed an angel as the caretaker of the womb.” So, from the very moment of our children’s creation, these beings play a part. Isn’t that heartwarming?
Angels and Our Children 👶💖
From the beginning, our children have angels as companions. This divine involvement continues as our kids grow. These angels are even there when our little ones pass on to the next life, carrying their souls, with faces shining brightly like the sun.
Angels remind us that there’s more to life than what we see. Let’s nurture this belief in our children too! 💫👧👦
Beware of the Jinn 🌪️🔥
Allah also created jinn, beings made from fire, who exist among us in various forms. Some fly in the air, some which exist as snakes and dogs, and some wander about. The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) warned, “Everyone of you has been assigned a companion from the Jinn.” But do not fear, for Allah has provided guidance on dealing with them.
Navigating the World of Jinn 🛡️
The Qur’an has verses that protect us from evil. Reciting Aayatul-Kursee before bedtime, as the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) recommended, provides us with a guardian from Allah, keeping the jinn at bay until morning.
Remember to share this divine shield with your children. Prayers are a comfort, a protection, and a teaching moment about faith. 🌃
Steer Clear of Dark Magic 🚫🔮
While jinn may tempt some towards fortune-telling and horoscopes, the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) explicitly warned against these practices. We, as mothers, must instill in our children the value of trust in Allah’s plan. He alone knows the knowledge of the unseen, as the Qur’an states: “Verily, the knowledge of the Hour is with Allaah alone.”
In Conclusion 🌺
While we’re not alone in this world, we’re protected, guided, and watched over. Remember, every step we take in teaching our children about faith, angels and jinn is accompanied by an angel, recording good deeds.
Let’s keep strengthening our spiritual connection and the bond with our children. After all, our journey as Muslim moms is not just about raising kids; it’s about raising beautiful souls! 💞
