Home Management

What does the home represent to the Muslim family?

It Is a place where family members can relate to one another and where they sincerely enjoy being together; where they have a sense of shared beliefs and values. A place where the children learn, their behavior should be based on Islamic principles. A place where family members are protected, happy and kind to one another. The home should not be just a place where people eat, rest and sleep. It is the place where husbands and wives find comfort in each other. The home is a place where families should worship together, and it should be based on Allah’s (SWT) rules and guidance.

It has been reported by Ibn Abi Aldunia and others (Sahih al-Jaami) that, “When Allah loves the people of a household, he introduces kindness among them.” In Sura’tul Al Nahl (Surah 16) in the Qur’an, Allah (SWT) says, “And Allah has made for you in your homes an abode.” The Prophet (peace & blessings be upon him) said: "All of you are shepherds, and each one is responsible for his flock. A leader of people is a shepherd and responsible for them. A man is like a shepherd over his family, and he is responsible for his flock. A woman is like a shepherd over her husband’s house and children, and she is responsible for them. And a slave is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for it. So all of you are guardians and are responsible for your charges."(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
