Teaching The Women Their Religion – Shaykh Taamir Fatooh (May Allah preserve him and his family upon good).
The shaykh began his advice by saying, Teach your wives and your women Aqeedah (Islaamic Creed) and Tawheed (To single out Allah in all acts of worship). Begin by teaching them from the small and short texts of Aqeedah and Tawheed, like Thalaathatul-Usool (The Three Foundations), Al-I’tiqaad (Creed) and Usoolul-Eemaan (Foundations of Faith). Teach them Al-Usool (the foundations).
Teach them slowly and easily. Be patient with them. Teach them Asmaa’ullah wa Sifaatullah (Allah’s names and Allah’s Attributes). Educate them in regards to Allah’s place and status. Teach them about His Ilm (Knowledge). Teach them Khawf (Fear)and Khashyah (Reverence) of Allah. Teach them Rajaa’ (Hope) and Mahabbah (Love) of Allah. Teach them about His Rahmah (Mercy).
Educate them about Wudhoo. Teach them Salaah (Prayer) and Sawm (Fasting). Teach them Arkaanul-Islaam (Pillars of Islaam). Teach them Tawakkul (Reliance) upon Allah and Ibaadah (Worship). Teach them slowly and gently.
