Inspiration for Islamic domestic life


Salaam Alaikum,

I am entering a time of my life when I expect I will be busy with bearing and raising children and all the domestics tasks that are required of a young wife. Sohbet books that use to enchant me now seem lofty ad far from reach. Can you recommend (English!) reading material which might inspire me with Islamic advice for my domestic life? I long to feel a taste of the love for Islam that I felt when I converted 6 years ago :)

thank you.


Alaykum Salam,

Now is the time to revisit the same sources, not for the enchantment of first love but for the marrow of maturity as that is where your treasure lies in sha Allah. Suhba is a living, organic, current and spiritually interactive wellspring if we but approach it with the pauper’s receptive hands it deserves.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
