The Choicest Rotten Meat

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلاً مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ البَصِيرُ 

"GLORY be to GOD Who made HIS Servant to go by night from the Sacred mosque (Mecca) 
to the Farthest Mosque (Jerusalem) 
Of which 
We have Blessed the Precincts, 
so that We may show to Him some of Our Signs; 
surely HE is the Hearing, the Seeing." 

Al-Qur'an - Surah Al-Isra': 1 


Prophet Muhammad sollallaahu 'alaihi wasallam was ascending the sky with Gabriel 'alaihis salam during Isra' Mi'raj (yesterday was Rejab 27).

He s.a.w. saw those, although in front of them were excellent meats in pots, they chose the putrid and foul ones.
They would eat from the foul and rotten meat, and would not touch the good meat.
Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. asked Gabriel a.s., 

"What is this, O Jibril?"

to which he replied, 

"These are the men from Your community. 
They have excellent, lawful wife at home, but chose unlawful women to spend their nights with.

And the women would leave their excellent, lawful husband, to go and spend their nights with foul men."


Marriage and family life are protected by very strong rules, because every goodness comes through marriage.

"And among HIS Signs is this, 
that HE created you (Adam) from dust,
and then (Hawa' [Eve] from Adam's rib, 
and then his offspring from the semen, and), 
- behold you are human beings scattered!
And among HIS Signs is this, 
that HE created for you wives from among yourselves, 
that you may find repose in them, 
and HE has put between you affection and mercy. 
Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. 
And among HIS Signs 
is the creation of the heavens and the earth, 
and the difference of your languages and colours. 
in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge." 
Al-Qur'an Surah Ar-Ruum 20 - 22 


Family is the foundation of society.

The peace and security offered by a stable family unit is greatly valued, and seen as essential for the spiritual growth of its members.

Children are priceless treasures.
Living in a harmonious family, they rarely want to leave home before marriage.
Some chose to remain staying with their parents after marriage.

A Muslim girl can never be forced to marry against her will, but her parents can suggest suitable men.
Female, weather single or married, is an individual in her own right.
A marriage dowry is given by the groom to the bride for her own personal use.

She keeps her own family name rather than taking her husband's.

Prophet Muhammad sollallaahu 'alaihi wasallam had said, 

"The most perfect in faith amongst believers 
is he who is best in manner and kindest to his wife."

A Muslim marriage is not a 'sacrament', but just a simple, legal agreement but which is often made complicated by tradition.

Divorce, although not forbidden, is only taken as the last resort as, 

"Enter upon matrimony. but do not divorce your wives, since divorce shakes the very Throne Of GOD."

Yes, divorce between husband and wife shakes the 'Arasy'.
'Arasy is ALLAH S.W.T.'s 'Throne'.

Divorce really, really anger the Creator.
If not, why thus the 'Arasy' is shaken?


The satan Daasim stations itself at doorways.
Whose house upon entry is without salam, Daasim's duty is to cause conflict between household members - men, wives and families.

Those who were and are caught offguard, Daasim triumph when it leads to violence and it won trophy when it results divorces between couples.

Then there is 'Awar, who encourages adultery.


A close friend do not see any wrong in his adulterous way.
He admitted frankly, he has to lead that kind of life, to complete his living.

The wife had encouraged another marriage for him.
But, relationship outside marriage is a thrill beyond expression.
Just like food, he craves varieties!

Why is that so?
The wife had often dream of their home being barged into.
Often she would sense a woman loitering around the lift-landing, or nearer home, at the gate.
Other time, her daughter just tell the mother there's someone near the shoe rack.

The wife did mention what she saw and sense to the husband, but he just refuse any changes made to his life.

When asked to go for counselling, he said, he knows more than the wife knew not. 

“Do as You please in this world, Oh Muhammad, 
But remember, 
You will be accountable for all that You do. 

And live as You please in this world, Oh Muhammad, 
But remember, 
One day, You will taste death. 

And love whom You please in Your life, Oh Muhammad, 
But remember, 
One day, You will part with Your loved one in death.” 
Jibrail a.s. said to the Prophet s.a.w.
