What makes a home and Islamic one?


Is it the material it is made of; the concrete, the bricks or the wood? People may live in tents yet their homes are Islamic.

It is the people, their character and how they behave is what makes a home Islamic. In an Islamic home, remembering Allah prevails over all. 
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: the similitude of a house that Allah’s name is mentioned in and house that Allah’s name is not mentioned in is similar to the similitude of the living and the dead. 
With houses filled with TVs, DVD players, satellite receivers and internet, the people rarely remember Allah.
This is when the angles depart such a house and the devils infest it.
Is your home alive or dead?
