Empowering Women

To Strengthen Our Anchors Of The Unseen

When the mother of Maryam (may Allah be pleased with her) asked Allah ‘Azza wa Jal for a child that could serve His religion, she was expecting a boy. But our Rabb gave her a girl to fulfil this exact intention of hers.

When the Arabs buried their female children alive perceiving them as shame and useless our prophet, salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam raised the status of women from the depths of the ground to the highest of heavens.

When it came to facing the enemies of Islam and putting our Lord first, the first person to put all fears aside and die for this religion was not a man. It was a woman. Sumayyah (may Allah be pleased with her).

When our beloved prophet salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said that in dunya there are three things most beloved to him, he mentioned that they were: prayer, perfume, and…women.

So what ever happened the sunnah of honouring, respecting and recognising the great status of our women in Islam? As did the sahabas radiAllahu anhum and the generation after them?

Let’s revive the spirit that has been lost. Let’s re-build the strength at mind and heart that they thought they could take away forever. Let’s arm ourselves with the knowledge we need to continue with these daily struggles in our lives.

Let’s loosen our shackles. Let’s empower ourselves.
