In the present era of trials and tribulations, with evil and fitnah surrounding us in every direction, there is no better sanctuary for a Muslim than his home. In Arabic the word for home is maskan. This is derived from the root word sukoon which means “peace”. Whether one lives in a simple dwelling or in a palatial home it is meant to give one peace. A palace is merely a house if there is no love or warmth and a shack can be home if the inhabitants live in peace and harmony and are a source of comfort and harmony for each other. Our most perfect Deen has taught us to transform houses into homes- emulate the most beautiful and noble Akhlaaq of Nabi (ﷺ) and uphold the social etiquette as taught to us by the Quraan and Sunnah.
As far as possible one should remain in ones home. The home is a place of peace for the believer. However, in order to make the home a sanctuary and place of peace, there has to be certain rules and regulations governing the home.
This book consists various aspects regarding living in a home and dealing with other household members.
