regular offerers of the five S̈alähs. Train them in morality and etiquettes of life. Then, Alläh will provide protection, else Satan may take them out of their homes and engage them in evils which take one to the Hell. May Alläh protect us! Training should be taken under reformatory lady trainers of Jamäât e Is̈läḧ e Muâ̈sharah wa Iz̈äla e Munkarät. Remember that televisions and cell phones are domestic temptations towards evil. So women, girls and brides should not use them. This is extravagance and also an established temptation towards evil. So make proper use of them. Regular Prayers: the Secret of Social Reform: Send children to the nearest mosque to learn Arabic. Teach them Qur'änic and Moral Rules. Habituate the boys and girls with regular prayers when seven years old. When ten years old, separate their sleeping beds, and if they miss a S̈aläh, beat them. (Abü Däwüd 418) Do not cook meal if somebody in the house misses a Saläh and let all miss one meal, so that they know the importance of S̈aläh. Repeat this as many times as needed. In Shä Alläh, all will become regular Saläh-offerers, and the society will be transformed for the better. Stop and think: if parents are strict with children in this age regarding S̈aläh and teach them good morals, they will be obedient in future, else the parents will regret! What should we do every day? (For women): Women should themselves regularly offer the five S̈alähs, and make the children offer them. They should serve their husbands. Pray to Alläh to put an end to your husband’s evil manners. Provide the best education to children. Work hard yourselves. Keep away from begging. Popularize Saläm. Feed a poor person every day.

JAMÄÂT E ISLÄH E MUÂSHARAH WAIZÄLA E MUNKARÄT (REGD. NGO)
M OVEM ENT FOR REFORM ATION OF SOCIETY AND ERADICATION OF EVILS
ActionOriented Pan-Islämic Movement
Respectable mothers, sisters and daughters, As Saläm u Âlaikum wa Raḧmatulläh i wa Barakätuh It is Alläh’s favor upon us that He created us in Muslim families. Nevertheless, the life of this world is a trial from Alläh. He wants to test how we act in this temporary world, where all of us have to die. It is thus incumbent upon us in this short span of life that we do acts which take us and our entire family into the Paradise and protect us from the Hell-fire. Satan comes in between us and our goals by inciting mutual quarrels, by making us more devoted to our professions than to Alläh, and by making us inclined towards evils like veillessness, alcohol consumption, unlawful copulation, theft, lies, deceits, dowry-exaction, begging, missing S̈alähs, interest-exaction, bribery, family disputes, disobedience to parents and husbands, etc. We find that evils are quite widespread in our society. This necessitates that special attention be paid towards reforming, educating and training girls and women in matters of Dïn to bridge the wide gap between them and their Dïn. For this, we have developed a detailed strategy, glimpses of which follow: Reformatory female teachers, each accompanied by a Maḧram (close male relative) will visit you at your homes and also interact with you in markets with the purpose of reforming and educating, so that all of us are saved from the Hell-fire. We cannot miss the point that there will be more women in the Hell, according to the holy Prophet’s ﻉﻝَﻱْ ِﻩ َﻭﺱَﻝ َّﻡ َ ُﺹﻝ َّﻯ هللا َ ḧadïth: “I was shown the Hell-fire. I found that the majority of its dwellers were women.” (Bukhärï 28) It is an indisputable fact that mother’s lap is a child’s first school. So, if the woman is reformed, the entire society will be reformed, too. S̈aläh and offer the five prayers regularly. Learn Home-work: Learn morality and etiquettes of life. Also get trained in the day-today Islämic way of life, in cooking, serving husbands, training and educating children, and realize the importance of charity.Keep away from evils like television serials, veillessness, needless shopping, dowry transaction, dispute, interest-based transaction, making irrational demands of husbands, etc. Be vigilant towards your husband’s earnings. If his income includes earnings from bribery, fraud, bullying, dishonest politics, interest-exactions and other dishonest means, then keep yourself and your children away from them. If at present, you are living off unlawful earnings, then spend all the unlawful assets and capitals in charity at the earliest, well before you die. Unlawful wealth may bring upon us curses, diseases, accidents, horrible forms of death, etc. May Alläh protect all of us from them! (If your husband is poor,) earn something yourself to eat before you die. For this purpose, you may take training in business or technical education to get employed. You may then deservedly hope that Paradise lies in wait for you. Do not harass your husband with undue demands. Do not seek to have undue ceremonies, extravagance, unwarranted ornamentation and ostentation in weddings. Do not make demands for houses, plots, etc. Do not annoy your husbands. Do not say, “What knowledge do you have?! Just shut up.” Beware! Do not make yourself among the people of the Hell knowingly. May Alläh protect us! women accompanied by Maḧrams will keep a Market-work: Reformatory watch on women at markets. So, no woman should go outside their houses without a Maḧram. They may go in a company of two to three women. Do not go out without veil. Steps will be taken to provide aid to mad and cloth-less women. Do not roam around talking over cell phones, engaging in useless conversation, and in frivolity. In any case, women should leave markets before 5 p.m. It is preferable that you leave home only with your husband’s permission. Take his permission for all that you do like eating, dressing, etc. It you do this, you will enter Paradise. If the husband is pleased, Alläh is pleased too.
