as salamu`alaykum

I attended a very interesting lecture the other day, alHamdulillah (titled above). The speaker gave us 8 unique aspects about the house of the Prophet (sallallahu`alayhi wasallam). Ofcourse, there are tons more so inshaAllah, use the comments section to add as many things as you can remember and I’ll keep adding it to this blog, bi idhnillahi ta’ala. Here is the list till now:

  • Rifq (Gentleness)
  • Az-Zuhd
  • Co-operation: “he used to help his family/wife”.
  • Praying in the house.
  • A place for commanding the good and forbidding the evil.
  • Privacy: Tirmidhi has a whole book on istidan, rules of entering the house.
    • Isti’nas, giving good company. (Uns). Tusallimu (make salaam).
  • Simplicity….too much comfort can become problem and you can become lazy. The Prophet (sallallahu`alayhi wasallam) said: “I eat like a slave eats and I sit like a slave sits”
  • Personal Hygiene: Sunan Tirmidhi, Allah likes us to be clean. Personal hygiene and cleanliness of the house.

apologize for the really rough notes, but inshaAllah I plan to elaborate on this further.
