Going in Jamaat

Question: We are a family of 4. One son is two and a half years old, and another one is ten months old, and I am pregnant again. We have moved to a new place and do not know anyone in our surroundings. We do not have any friends in this place. My husband wants to go in jamaat. Can he go in these situations, leaving me all alone in an unknown place? And can you please suggest an alternative in such situations? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

We advise that your husband delay going in jamaat and look after the family until everyone is settled. When a woman is pregnant, she needs a lot of assistance, e.g., lifting heavy things, help to watch the kids, etc. While at home, both of you can do all the activities performed in jamaat, e.g., Taleem, recitation of the Quran, zikr, etc. You can regularly listen to lectures of authentic scholars online or in your local Masjid. Also, endeavor to increase your Islamic knowledge by taking courses taught by reliable Ulema and reading authentic books. If you and your husband work as a team to create an Islamic environment at home, Insha’Allah, you will see the tremendous spiritual effects.


Alternatively, he can take you and the kids to your parents’ house so that you are not left alone. Then, he can go in jamaat.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ
