A Harmonious Community Starts From Home

  • The noble Quran has always emphasised on the importance of nurturing the soul and giving it guidelines. Almost every aspect of one’s life is mentioned in the Quran, either implicitly or explicitly. One such aspect is the guidance in managing our families.
  • In the Quran, there are several verses in which Allah s.w.t. praises His servants by calling them عِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ (The servants of Allah who is the Most Generous). They are those who are often making doa and asking from Allah s.w.t. to bless their families with good progeny who will grow to be pious leaders.
  • Just as how family life has the potential to bring about happiness, it can also be a source of conflict. Hence, one can refer to the Quranic verses that outline the traits of those who have taqwa, as guidelines to having a successful family life.
