Social expectations can make some women feel like they have to choose between family or their worship in Ramadan. We all have multiple responsibilities, and while that means we have to work hard to balance them, that also means we don’t have to choose between one or the other.

For both men and women, caring for your family for the sake of Allah and with Ihsan is a source of blessings. That does not, however, make it a replacement for the special worship in Ramadan.

Helping everyone in the family reach a balance is a team effort. A wife’s ibadah is her husband’s priority as well.

A woman prioritize her worship or her family during the month of Ramadan.

00:00:08--> 00:00:49

Allah subhanho wa Taala has obligated multiple responsibilities on every single person. And when it comes to the issue of family versus worship, every single one of us has to prioritize both at the same time, we have to be good family members, good parents and sons and daughters and husbands and wives, and we have to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there is no either or here. The priority is both simultaneously. So within each other, you have to learn how to pray and fast and take care of the family. And here's the beautiful point when a woman or a man takes care of the family with his son with perfection and keeps a law in his or her mind and does it for the sake of Allah, then

00:00:49--> 00:01:21

even taking care of the family will become an act of worship. So yes, even taking care of the family will be rewarded by a lot. But still, even as we take care of the family, take some time out to read the Quran as well and to make sure we do our prayers and to do as much about that as possible. And husbands as well cut some slack on your wives give them some opportunity and room to worship Allah subhana wa tada in this month. This is the month of prayer and fasting and charity and to help Jude and pm will lead and put on So allow everybody time to do these blessings.
