The Joyous Journey of Purification for Muslim Moms
Imagine, dear readers, beginning your day with the light of purity in your heart and a serene soul, embodying the teachings of the clear Quran and the Sunnah. What difference would it make in your life as a Muslim mom?
Let’s explore the beautiful journey of purification, incorporating the teachings of the noble Quran and the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), such as Zakaah, the avoidance of Najas (impure) activities, and the importance of good intentions.
Understanding Purification in Islam
Allaah has said, “Take Sadaqah (alms) from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it…” Giving charity (zakaah) is a potent way of purification. As a Muslim mom, sharing part of your wealth with those in need, not only helps you but is also a teaching moment for your children about kindness and generosity.
Purification through Abstaining from Impurities
“Verily, the Mushrikoon are Najas (impure)”, the Quran enlightens us about the importance of abstaining from impurities. Protecting yourself and your family from Najas (impure) things, whether physical or spiritual, is a way to purify your home and soul.
Purification from Evil Deeds
The Clear Quran reminds us, “And we saved him from the town (folk) who practised Al-Khabâ’ith (evil, wicked and filthy deeds, etc.)”. As moms, it is our role to guide our children away from evil deeds. But first, we ourselves need to steer clear of these harmful actions.
Staying Away from Abominations
The Glorious Quran mentions, “Al-khamr (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), al-maysir (gambling), al-ansaab (idols), and al-azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are rijzun (abomination) from the works of Shaytaan.” As a Muslim mom, we should set an example by refraining from such activities, instilling purity in our children’s hearts.
Purification through Intentions
Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) beautifully said, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions…” Our intentions are the driving force behind our actions. A pure intention results in pure action, so teach your children the importance of good intentions.
