Daily Program for the Muslim Woman in Ramadan


Question: What is the daily program for the muslim woman in Ramadan so that she can worship her Lord and at the same time tend to the needs of her household?

Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhayli, may Allaah preserve him, answers:

“The daily program for the muslim woman is that of the mans except that the woman increases in an act of worship and that is that if the woman strives in tending to the needs of her husband and household and prepares enough food for them that will suffice them, then she is in the obedience of Allaah if she seeks the reward from Allaah while doing that.

In this is her reward and an increasement of her good deeds and it is befitting for the muslim woman to busy her tongue with the remembrance of Allaah when she is preparing the food. So while she is cooking she is saying subhaanallaah, while she is cooking she is saying laa ilaaha illa Allaah, while she is cooking she is remembering Allaah and in that is a great reward for her. Like this, preparing dinner will never divert her from the worship of her Lord in the day of Ramadan.

So congratulations to the muslim woman who serves her husband and the people of her household and all the while looking for the reward from Allaah and along with this she isn’t neglectful about the remembrance of Allaah and she carries out what she is able to from worship during the day of Ramadan. For indeed she has succeeded a great success.”

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
