Quranic Day of the woman

Standard

Prophet #Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam said, “Her(#Khadija RA) love had been nurtured in my heart by Allah Himself”[Sahîh Muslim]

“If I were in charge of choosing ‘International Woman’s Day’, I would have chosen the day that the Quran was revealed to our Prophet Muhammad (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) in the Cave of Hira.

That day, when a strong, brave, intelligent man named Muhammad, rushed to have his fears calmed and his anxieties soothed…he rushed back to a woman.

That day when Muhammad ignored all of his people, and his friends, and all of mankind, in order to tell a woman that the Heavens had opened up to him.

That day when a woman calmed her husband down, and supported him, and encouraged him, and held his hand and took him to someone who would interpret the events of the day.

That day when she became the first to believe in him and his message, and promised to stand by his side, and opened up her own personal treasures to help him.

That day when she believed while everyone else rejected; when she comforted him while everyone else threatened; when she supported his mission when everyone else mocked.

That lady who never once in any manner betrayed him, and whose death caused him such grief that the entire year of her death is called ‘The Year of Sorrow’, and it was the will of Allah that he be consoled through the miracle of al-Isra wa-l-Mi’raj.

May Allah have mercy on our Mother Khadijah, the Mother of the Believers and the greatest role model of women, for all of us, for all of eternity.”

~ Adopted from a post on Shaykh Dr. Ali Sallabi’s Facebook page.

I ask Allah Ar Raqeeb (the One who sees what’s hidden in the hearts) as He nurtured love in the heart of His very Messenger for his wife to nurture love for us all in the heart of those who become halaal to us and to those bound to us.

And God Made Woman

Standard

“WOMAN” When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day……. An angel came by & asked “Why spend so much time on her?” The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?” She must function on all kinds of situations, she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart, she must do all this with only two hands. She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.

The Angel was impressed. Just two hands…..impossible!” And this is the standard model? The Angel came closer and touched the woman, but you have made her so soft, Lord. “She is soft”, said the Lord, “But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome”. “Can she think?” The Angel asked… The Lord answered, “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”.

The Angel touched her cheeks “Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her. “She is not leaking…it is a tear” the Lord corrected the Angel. “What’s it for?” asked the Angel. The Lord said, “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.” This made a big impression on the Angel.
” Lord, you are genius. You thought of everything. A woman is indeed marvelous!” Lord said, ” Indeed she is. She has strength that amazes a man. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when she feels like screaming. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid. She fights for what she believes in. Her love is unconditional. Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life.”

The Angel asked: So she is a perfect? The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback “She often forgets what she is worth”….
