During the time of the prophet Muhammad (saw), the
prophet encouraged his companions to gain all sorts of
different skills. From archery, swimming, and wrestling,
the sahabahs expanded their skills to many areas. How-
ever in this day and age, we as an ummah seem to lack in
simple life skills. Of them all is the skill of self defence.
The muslims is advised to be always equipped and ready
to whatever circumstances they may be put in. It is of
great importance that the muslim, especially the muslim
sisters, know how to defend themselves if ever put in a
situation where they are in danger of harm. As muslims
we should accept reality, therefore we do not turn our
other cheek. In this article Brother Hamza shares some
skilful tactics we could use, if ever put in a situation
whereby we need to defend ourselves.
