Anyone Home? by Anonymous (QI 2013)

During my journey of the Qur’an, I have learnt and grown a lot. One thing that truly amazes me is the fact that we do the Tafseer of an ayah in class and Allah puts me in a situation where I have to apply my acquired knowledge. I believe it is Allah’s way of preparing me for the next level. However, today’s class had an unexpected impact. How was it different from other times? Well, the situation occurred a day before, and I heard the ayahs related to it, today!!

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تَدْخُلُوا۟ بُيُوتًا غَيْرَ بُيُوتِكُمْ حَتَّىٰ تَسْتَأْنِسُوا۟ وَتُسَلِّمُوا۟ عَلَىٰٓ أَهْلِهَا ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌۭ لَّكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ

O believers! Do not enter any house other than your own until you have asked for permission and greeted its occupants. This is best for you, so perhaps you will be mindful.

(24-27)


Subhanallah, This ayah hit me like a thunder bolt, bringing me to my senses and making me feel

bad about what I had done.

Allah was teaching me the etiquettes of entering any house irrespective of the relation shared by the owner of the house. In other words, whether it is your brother’s house or your strange neighbor’s house, the same rule applies…




The essence of this ayah is that Allah is telling us what is good for us, what is the proper conduct of a believer while visiting others. So, here lies the cause of my discomfort. Yesterday, I visited my sister-in-law but she was not home, that had never stopped me from entering her house before.

While she was away, I used to go through her cupboards without her consent. Seeing myself doing that simple act, which I have done so often for  many years, now felt like a mountainous burden on my shoulders. The norm didn’t seem like a norm anymore. The seriousness of this act sunk in, after Sister Sabeen explained them in Tafseer  today.


Everyone has their own lessons to learn and to some, my situation may sound very silly. However, I am worried about my situation in front of Allah . الحمد لله, Allah has given me the tawfeeq to learn about it and I am hoping for His forgiveness. I’ve learnt that it’s never too late to realise one’s mistake and reform. The real test is whether I saw the Haqq when it was presented to me. It’s very easy to read the verses, study them in class, but it is a different ball game when it comes to implementing them in real life.

We all come from different backgrounds and lifestyles and sometimes people around us govern our behaviour and attitude. At this point I am left wondering if doing Surat An-Nur, made my life easy or more difficult? And, this in itself makes me question the level of Iman in my heart.

سبحان الله It makes me realise that no matter how much knowledge we have, there is always more to learn, always more to improve on, and much further to go. There is never a point in our lives when we can say we are at our best – be it in terms of ‘ilm, ikhlaq, or Imaan.

But Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) gives us the tawfeeq to live to see a new day, every day. The real question is “What are we going to do with it?"
