The Family is The Basic Building Block of A Society

Everything in this world will perish. However, some things last longer than others. A strong base will keep a building standing for hundreds of years. But, a small earthquake can bring down a very tall building with a weak base. A character is the base of a person. A marriage is the base of a family. The family is the base of a society. If the base is righteous and strong, so will be the rest.

The secret to a strong family, hence society, is to follow commands and advices of our Lord. No tradition should ever replace what is commanded by Allah. His Wisdom should be our guide. A strong connection with Him will help us walk the right path.This will bring out the best of us inside and outside of our homes.

A family is the first place where we learn how to interact with others around us. It is impossible to live together, agree on everything and never have a conflict. Our Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) advised his Ummah:

“A believing man should not hate a believing woman; if he dislikes one of her characteristics, he will be pleased with another.” (Sahih Muslim)

This hadith can be applied to all spheres of a Muslim’s life. Whenever a person finds something bad, he should look at the good and keep that in mind. This will allow him to search for the good in everything and everyone, and overlook faults and mistakes of others. Righteous individuals will create righteous families who in turnt will create righteous societies.
