(3) Making the home a place for the remembrance of Allaah
The Prophet, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: “The likeness of a house in which Allaah is remembered and the house in which Allaah is not remembered is that of the living and the dead, respectively.”

We must make our homes places where Allaah is remembered in all kinds of ways, whether in our hearts, verbally, during prayer, by reading Qur'aan by discussing Islaamic issues, or by reading different kinds of Islaamic books.
How many Muslim homes nowadays are dead because there is no remembrance of Allaah, as mentioned in the Hadeeth. What must they be like when all that is heard therein is the music of Shaytaan with instruments and singing, and backbiting, slander and gossip?
What must they be like when they are filled with evil and sin, such as the Haraam mixing of the sexes and wanton display between relatives who are not Mahram or with neighbors who enter the home?
How can the angels enter a home like this? Revive your homes with all kinds of Thikr, may Allaah have mercy on you!
(4) Make your homes a place of worship
What is meant by taking the home as a place of worship?
Allaah Says (what means): "And We inspired Moosa and his brother [saying]: ‘Take dwellings for your people in Egypt, and make your dwellings as places for your worship, and perform al-salaah, and give glad tidings to the believers.’" [QUR'AAN 10:87].
Ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with them both, said: “They were commanded to take their dwellings as places of prayer [lit. mosques].”
