What are the means of reforming our homes? This booklet contains advice on this topic. May Allah benefit us from it, and cause the Muslims to focus their efforts on reviving the Muslim home. All the following advice revolves around two things: achieving our interests, which is by establishing that which is right and good, and warding off evil, by removing that which can cause it or bring it into our homes.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): 'And Allah has made for you in your homes an abode' [al-Nahl, 16:80]. Ibn Katheer (Ra) said: 'Here Allah, may He be blessed and exalted, is mentioning His complete blessing to His slaves: 'He has given them homes which are a peaceful abode for them, to which they retreat as a haven which covers them and gives them all kinds of benefits.''
What does the home represent to each one of us? Is it not the place where he eats, enjoys intimacy with his wife, sleeps and rests? Is it not the place where he can be alone and can meet with his wife and children?
