The Gracious Relationship of Marriage

All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. May Allaah raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad and all the Prophets before him and protect his nation from that which he fears for them.

Thereafter, it was said:

Islaam constitutes rights for women as it does for men. This fairness is clearly stated in the Holy Qur’aan. Soorat Al-Baqarah, Aayah 228 indicates that men are bound to rights and duties, which they have to give to women; as women are bound to rights and duties, which they have to give to men, as ordered by Allaah the Exalted.

Hardships

Praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds, to Whom belongs the endowments and generosities and Whom we commend out of exaltation.  May Allaah raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ^alayhi wa sallam, the master of all the prophets and messengers, and protect his nation from what he feared for them and likewise his pure family members and kind companions. Aameen.

Thereafter, it was said:

Allaah said in the Qur'aan (Soorah Al-Balad, Aayah 4)

لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الإِنْسَانَ فِي كَبَدٍ

Which means: Indeed, We have created man into travail (hardships, toil).

The Battle of Al-Jisr and Yawmul-^Ashaar

All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. May Allaah raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad and all the Prophets before him and protect his nation from that which he fears for them.

Thereafter, it was said:

Among the first things that our master, ^Umar ibn Al-Khattaab did when he became the caliph, was organize the Muslims to fight the Persians. As the Muslims were paying allegiance to him, he was urging them to fight the Persians. He urged them for three days. On the fourth day, they started responding to that and the first person who was eager to fight was Abu ^Ubayd ibn Mas^ood. Then after him was Saloot ibn Qays, and then the people started following after them. When ^Umar achieved the number he had in mind, it was said to him, “Put a leader for them, one from among the first batch of the Muhaajiroon and the Ansaar.  And seek their opinion and do not rush into things until you are certain, for this is war and war requires a man that doesn’t rush into things; rather, he employs the right opportunity.”
