HADITH: Prophet Muhammad(SAS) said "Even a smile is charity." I am reading a book called "You Can Be The Happiest Woman In The World, By Dr.Aid al-Qarni. It is a devotional book. I read one devotional everyday. I really have enjoyed this book. In the beginging of the book it has a list of things to say "Yes" to as a Muslim woman. The first one says " Say yes, to your beautiful smile that sends a message of warmth and friendliness to others. It's so easy to smile and yet some of us don't. We always have a frown on our faces because life isn't what we want it to be. Smiling can also be an act of charity. We can be rewarded by Allah just for smiling. How beautiful is that!? By smiling you bring such warmth to others....
I think of a warm fire and how it makes me feel. I love fires. They bring such a big smile to my face. I love it's warmth that it gives when it is cold out. I love to listen to the crackling sounds as I sit and watch the glow of the flames.
How about smiling to our husbands and children in the morning when they wake? Sending our husbands off to work with a simple and beautiful smile that we will be rewarded for by Allah. Letting them know we love them and are happy for all the hard work they do for us and our children. Our husbands are our Jenna(Heaven) We MUST please them! How easy and simple to just SMILE.
How about at the end of a long day. To again smile to our husbands and children. When putting your children to bed just give a smile and kiss. How easy is that!? Again you will be rewarded for this act from Allah. When going to bed smile at your husband. He has worked so hard that day to put food into your stomach and your childrens. He has made it so you can be warm in your home during the winter and cool during the summer. He has maybe given you money to enjoy shopping or a car to enjoy going out to visit friends and family. Smile and tell him "thank you" for all that he does for you. You will be rewarded for making him happy and for SMILING!
