woman-islam-part-6-islamic-articles-When a female reaches puberty, then all the laws of Allah and His
Rasool now apply to her. She is now obligated to follow all the
laws of Islam (Shariat). It now becomes fard (obligatory) upon her to
pray her Namaaz, keep fast in the month of Ramadaan etc. It also
becomes fard upon her to act upon the laws of Shariah in regard to
Zakaat, Hajj etc.
She is now responsible for adhering to her duties towards Allah and
His Rasool and her rights towards Allahs servants. It now becomes
fard upon her to abstain from all major and minor sins, since she is
now responsible for her every action and will be treated in the Court
of Almighty Allah like all adults.
It also becomes necessary for her to respect and be obedient
towards her parents and elders, and serve them as Islam commands. She should learn good habits and abstain from bad
habits and wrongdoings. She must live her life in accordance with
the commands of Almighty Allah and His Rasool , as a true and
sincere Muslim, so that she may become a respectable and pious
She should adorn herself with good character by making patience,
generosity, kindness and hard work her prime qualities. She should
learn how to live in the company of her husband and children after
marriage. This, she should learn by asking her mother and other
elderly women in the family.
The importance of her learning the proper Islamic way of life and
living in this way is necessary, so that she may be respected in her
family and in her community. She should be aware of her actions
and abstain from any action that will render her a sinner in the
Court of Allah, and an outcast in her respected community. She
should never abuse any of the wealth or belongings of her parents
in any way. Never must she leave the home without the permission
of her parents.
She should never be seen in the company of strange males (nonmahram)
as this is forbidden and will be the cause of punishment and slander. It is during this age, that a female must protect her integrity and respect more than anything else. Muslims females should remember that once they lose their respect and integrity, it can never be regained. This will always be a stigma attached to your personality and the name of your family.
Never talk to men without reason, and never laugh and joke with
men or sit in their company as this leads to evil thoughts and the
means to sinful acts such as adultery and fornication.
She should abstain totally from reading books and magazines that
have articles which wrongly influence them and cause them to act
contrary to the Shariah.
Never read romantic Novels & books that influence affairs and
She should read the Holy Quran and Islamic books that make her a
better Muslim and a beloved servant in the Court of Allah and His
Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
She should never frequent cinemas, night clubs and other places of
corruption. These places are for kufaar and not for those who are
believing men and believing women.
Remember! When you frequent places of corruption, you are acting
against the command of Allah and His Rasool and at the same
time bringing disgrace to yourself and your family.
Rather you go to places of religious benefit, like Meelad Shareef,
Gyaaree Shareef, Khatams etc. These are places where Allahs Mercy descends. Never listen to those who say these blessed actions to be bid’at and sinful.
Remain steadfast on the Path of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (The
Sunni Path). Always read the Quran in abundance. Also read
