Melaad Ijtima For Islamic sister

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Women and Loud Voices!

Women reciting Naat Shareef in such a loud voice that a (foreign)ajnabee can hear them is a severe offense and is a sin (Haraam)It is impermissible for ajnabee men to hear the voice of a ajnabee woman. While performing Namaaz, if a man wants to stop someone from passing before him he should say ''Subhanallah!''. However, if a woman wishes to so, she shouldnt say this but hit the back of her left hand with her right hand instead. This explains that in Namaaz, even in a situation of need, a woman should make her voice audible. Similarly, reciting Naat Shareef with music and the loud voice of women in Milaad Shareef gatherings is a big sin. Music itself is Haraam and utterly vain. Using it with Naat recitation, which is an act of worship, is even a greater sin. If any gathering of Milaad Shareef has these incorrect practices, they should be done away with. However, the Milaad Shareef shouldnt be abandoned. If a woman recites the Quraan Shareef in a loud voice or if recitation is made with music, these vices should be stopped, not the recitation (because that is an act of worship).May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala forgive us all for rasing our voices, Ameen!May we all strive to benefit from this, Ameen!

The Wit of a Wise Woman

A group of men once visited Rabi¡¦ah Basriyah Radi Allahu anhato test her to see if she would make an unguarded comment. ¡§All the virtues have been scattered upon the heads of men,¡¨ they said. ¡§The crown of prophethood has been placed on the heads of men. The belt of nobility has been fastened around the waists of men. No women has ever been a prophet.¡¨¡§All that is true,¡¨ she replied. ¡§But egotism, worshiping one¡¦s self, and ¡§I am your Lord, the Most High¡¨ have never sprung from a woman¡¦s breast. All these things have been the specialty of men.¡¨-Tazkirah Al-Awliyaa¡¦

Benefits of Patience

The Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said: “Never a believer is stricken with a discomfort, an illness, an anxiety, a grief or mental worry or even the pricking of a thorn that his sins are removed for him.” {Imams Bukhari and Muslim}
Some of the Benefits of Patience:
We should recognize that there are many benefits of patience. A person will benefit from patience in this life and/or the hereafter. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says in the Noble Qur'an, what could be translated as, “Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning.” (Verse 10) surat Az-Zumar.

Here are some of the benefits of patience:

*Patience keeps you from getting bored during serious activities that require continuous energy and time. *Patience keeps you from rushing on tasks that require much time. *Patience controls you during times of anger and prevents you from committing wrong verbal or physical acts. *Patience controls you during conditions of fear and prevents you from committing wrong verbal or physical acts. *Patience controls you from greediness and prevents you from committing wrong verbal or physical acts. *Patience controls you from following your own desires. *Patience prepares you to withstand physical or psychological hardship when it is required. *Practicing patience is proof of the completion of faith and it is a good practice of Islam. *Practicing patience gives you guidance in your heart. *Practicing patience will lead you to being loved by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala his Rasool Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam and the people. *Practicing patience is required in positions of power and authority. *Practicing patience will make a person enter Paradise and it will save him from the hellfire. *Practicing patience will always keep you under the protection and care of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala *Practicing patience will protect you from the fear on the Day of Judgment. *Practicing patience will lead you to die as a good Muslim. *Finally, Practicing patience will give you the blessings and mercy of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala

Jealous Of The Pious!

One time shaitaan came to Hazrat Nooh alaihis salaam and said, "I want to repay a favour that you did for me." Hazrat Nooh alaihis salaam said, "O rejected one, I never even let you close to me, how could I have done you any favour?"

Shaitaan said, "By asking for your disobedient nation to be drowned, you have saved me from future calamities. You have saved me the trouble of struggling for ways to make them disobedient. In return for that I want to give you some advice, that save yourselves from being jealous of pious people. I was destroyed because I was jealous of Hazrat Adam alaihis salaam, and I became the first one to enter Hell. I could not stand his excellence and his status and refused to bow in front of him and therefore became cursed and rejected." (True Narrative, Nuzhatul Majaalis)

Sometimes the enemy speaks the truth as well. Shaitaan was jealous of Hazrat Adam alaihis salaam and for this Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala rejected his worship, rejected his praises and rosaries that he had said, did not look at the fact that he had taught the Angels. The result of his jealousy at the status that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala had given Hazrat Adam alaihis salaam was that he was rejected and cursed forever. This shows us that jealousy is such a great sin that it destroys all the good that a person may have done and makes a person destined for hell. May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala save us all from jealousy. Aameen

The longest Hand!

Hazrat A'ishah Radi Allahu anha narrates that Some of the wives of the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam asked him , "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (die after you ?)" He Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said, "Whoever has the longest hand."..

May we all practice giving charity and help fellow Muslim brothers and sisters ameen.

To be the most Beautiful woman in the world.

With your beauty, you are better than the sun; with your morals you are more sublime than musk; with your modesty you are nobler than the full moon; with your compassion you are more beneficial than rain.

So, preserve your beauty with faith, your tranquility with contentment, your chastity with Hijaab.

Remember that your adornment is not gold, silver or diamonds, rather it is two rak'ahs at Fajr, going thirsty when you fast for Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, concealed charity which no one knows except Him, hot tears that wash away sin, a lengthy prostration born of utter submission to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, shyness before Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala when the inclination to do evil overwhelms you.

Clothe yourself with the garments of taqwa (piety) for you are the most beautiful woman in the world in, even if your clothes are shabby.

Clothe yourself with the cloak of modesty, for you are the most beautiful woman in the world even if you are barefoot. Beware of the life of bewitching immoral disbelieving women, for they are the fuel of the fire of Hell.

{None shall enter it save the most wretched.}(Quran 92:15)

"Wherever you go and find darkness in your life; what you have to do is to light the lamp within yourself"

Forgiving One Another!

The Muslim woman who is truly guided by Islam is tolerant towards her friends and Sisters, and does not bear grudges against them. If she becomes angry with one of her Sisters, she restrains her anger and freely forgives the one who has committed an error, without seeing any shame in doing so. In fact, she sees this as a good deed which will bring her closer to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:
''(those) who restrain anger and pardon (all) men - for Allah loves those who do good.'' (Quraan Shareef 3:134)

If a person suppresses his or her seething anger, and does not forgive, that anger will turn into resentment and malice, which are more dangerous than anger. When a person forgives and forgets, the flames of anger are extinguished, and his or her soul is cleansed of the effects of anger and hatred. This is the level of Ihsan which earns Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala love for those who attain it:

''For Allah loves those who do good.'' (Quraan Shareef 3:134)

The Muslim woman who truly adheres to the teachings of Islam is one of this group of Muhsineen. She does not allow anger to continue boiling in her heart, because suppressed resentment is a very heavy burden on the soul; rather, she hastens to forgive and forget, thus freeing herself from this burden, and filling her soul with tranquillity and peace of mind.

Something that may help the Muslim woman to reach this difficult level of Ihsan is the knowledge that forgiving one's Sister is not a source of humiliation or shame, rather it will raise her in status and honour in the sight of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, as the Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam described: "Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will not increase His servant when He forgives except in honour. No one humbles himself for the sake of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala but Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will raise his status." (Muslim Shareef)

If we compare this honour and status with the status of Ihsan reached by the woman who is tolerant and forgiving, we will realize what an honour she has attained, for in the sight of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala she is one of the Muhsinaat, and in the sight of people she is a respected, beloved example. The Muslim woman who has truly understood the teachings of Islam cannot have any trace of hatred or resentment in her heart towards anybody, because she understands precisely the value of forgiveness and purity of heart, and their importance if she seeks Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala forgiveness and pleasure, as the Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam explained: "There are three sins, whoever dies free of these sins will be forgiven for anything else, if Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala wills: associating anything with Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala; practising magic or witchcraft; and bearing resentment towards his brother." (Bukhari Shareef)

The Mother's Milk

The Prophet Muhammad (peabe be upon him) was born at a time when it was customary among the wealthy of the Quraysh tribe to have their babies nursed by Bedouins around Makkah. It was believed that a Bedouin wet-nurse gave a strong physical constitution to the child, as well as the easy manners of the desert Arabs. The free open-air life of the desert and a clean and healthy environment clean for the mother contributed towards the provision of a complete and nourishing food…milk. The Prophet of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) gained much from the milk of his wet-nurse, Halima.
An important period of bonding between mother and child, the process of breast-feeding, soothes the baby - new to the strange noises, smells and sensations of this world. It brings warmth, love, and security to the new child; but just as importantly, it brings complete nutrition, immunity and health protection. This is because breast milk, Allah's intended food for babies, is nature's perfect "formula". Man-made formulas will never replace what Allah has created. Breast milk allows the baby's immune and digestive systems to develop and be nourished before the baby begins taking on more complex foods. It also provides increased immunity. "Breast fed babies have a health advantage over those given formula because of the immunity factors in human milk. Some researchers have gone so far as to call the human mammary gland or breast, an immunologic organ. It's like Mother Nature guards her newborns with an infection-fighting elixir designed to safely carry them through the first few years of life".

So far, scientists have divided the not-completely-understood agents of human milk into three categories:

Germ fighters
Inflammation Soothers
Immune System Enhancers

Breast milk composition even changes throughout the day and the baby's growth in order to fit the needs of the child. For instance, a mother with a premature baby has different milk, more suited for her child's needs, than a mother who gives birth to a full-term baby.

Formula baby foods can never reproduce this quality that Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) has blessed women with. Cow's milk, often the base of man-made formulas, frequently causes lactose-intolerance. In fact, very few populations remain able to tolerate lactose; and the ones who are tolerant are populations that have had to rely on the milk of their herds for food under difficult environments. However, over 70% of African, Chinese, Japanese, Ashkenazi Jews and Mediterraneans have lost their lactose tolerance ability. In the U.S. up to 25% of Caucasians are lactose intolerant. There also seems to be a relationship between colic in breast-fed infants and the cows' milk drunk by their mothers. Furthermore, many children are allergic to the alternative soy-based formulas recently being sold; many minerals and vitamins are hard for babies to digest in synthetic form. For instance, the minerals zinc and iron are easier to absorb when taken in human milk.

Furthermore, the ratio of phosphorus and calcium in cow's milk makes it difficult to digest properly. The ratio of calcium to phosphorus in human milk is 2.35:1 but the ratio is 1.27 in cow's milk. Frank Oski of the Department of Pediatrics at Upstate Medical Center, State University of New York in Syracuse said, "Only foods with a calcium-to-phosphorus ratio of 2-1 or better should be used as primary source of calcium." Phosphorus can combine with calcium in the digestive tract and actually prevent the absorption of calcium. Therefore, humans absorb less calcium from the high-calcium cow's milk than from the lower-calcium human milk.

Perhaps this is why studies consistently show that nursed children are healthier in general, suffering less from allergies, eczema, diarrhea, and skin disorders due to the immunity factor in human milk. In places like the Chinese province of Hubei, babies are taller and weigh more the longer they are breast-fed. Breast milk also contains antibodies to protect babies against salmonella, E. Coli, candida and botulism; and help in the defense against polio and respiratory infections. Antimicrobes in human milk ease inflammation and fight bacteria, whereas cow's milk in humans nurtures harmful bacteria. A study by a Finnish scientist used 237 healthy children to discover that the longer an infant was nursed the fewer ear infections they had. This fact was taken even further if the child received no supplementation other than mothers' milk. When a baby is taken off human milk and given formula, an allergy may develop to the cow's milk in the formula. Sometimes, cow's milk irritates the Eustachian tube that connects the ear to the throat. Researchers have also noticed that people who were breast-fed as infants are less likely to get diabetes, Crohn's disease (a digestive disorder) and some types of cancer. Obesity is another health problem that is less prevalent in breast-fed babies. Recent research by Matthew Gillman looked at 15,000 children and found that there is a lower risk of being overweight by age 14 in breast fed children. Gillman's logical explanation was that babies who breast-fed regularly regulated their own food intake and stopped eating when were full; while a bottle-fed baby may continue to eat more, feeding until the bottle is empty. One can liken human milk to organic/fresh foods that provide more bulk in the stomach; whereas formula is more like processed foods that don't satisfy the hunger because they provide less bulk. Gillman also found that the mother's weight played a role. Thinner mothers were more likely than heavy mothers to breast-feed, and for longer periods. British researchers found that, in addition to better health, mother's milk increases IQ's. They tracked 300 children until they were seven or eight years old. Children who were nursed had IQ's 8.3 points higher than formula fed babies. We try to provide the best we can and make the most of what Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) blessed us with. Therefore we should continue that effort, especially when it is in the best interests of our children.

Blessings of the tragedy at Faizan-e-Madina

(1~3) Aunty and niece in the court of the Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam

(1) During the tragedy at the world centre of Dawat-e-Islami, Faizan-e-Madina (Baab-ul-Madina) at the weekly sunnah inspired Ijtima on Sunday 10th Rabi-un-Noor 1427 (9/4/06), an aunty (60 years old approx.) and her niece (25 years old approx.) from Green town (Baab-ul-Madina Karachi) were also martyred. Since Satan takes advantage from incidents such as this and creates all type of doubts, it was heard that the living relatives of these two, due to extreme grief and sorrow, also became victims of suspicion about the Madani environment. There is no doubt that whatever Allah does is always correct. In every action of His, there is countless divine wisdom. May we be sacrificed at His divine wisdom! He revealed such glorious things about these two martyrs after their death that the evil whisperings of Satan were completely destroyed. The Islamic sisters from Dawat-e-Islami who were responsible for the ghusl of these two martyrs report that during the ghusl, both the aunt and the niece clearly smiled three times. When the relatives of these martyrs saw this miracle, they immediately said Subhan-Allah Azawajal
(2) In the same way, on the eve of the 11th of Rabi-un-Noor 1427h, an Islamic sister also saw these two martyrs in the blessed company of the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam and they were saying `Marhaba Ya Mustafa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam ` in praise of the birth of the Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam.

(3) A person from their family also saw them in a dream and saw that they were very happy and in a good position.Seeing these people smile during their ghusl, and also hearing some of the good news of these two, Alhamdu-Lillah Azawajal the doubts and complaints of this family were also removed. They also started to praise the Madani environment. Their family are now also under the impression that both these martyrs are very happy and they certainly have achieved a lot through the Madani environment. The mother of the girl said that In`shaa-Allah azawajal she will replace her daughter and sister in the Madani Ijtima and will try to become a source of further happiness to these two martyrs. May Allah shower his mercy upon them and forgive us for their sake.

Purdah (VEIL)

I felt I had to put this thread up as the recent events happening in America not only shocked me but angered me and I feel that this and other women are forgetting their place in Islam and abusing it.So much for equal rights yes, but Islam has put a purdah there for a reason, and we as women do not cross that line.Sex is a reality of human life. It can neither be ignored nor escaped from. Islam divides its people in the two categories of men and women, which is only natural and realistic. Societies that have violated this division have passed through disaster. At some places, there has been too much of stringency maintained leading to the segregation of the half of its people, while at others obliterating the distinction between the two sexes has created an unnatural semblance of unity.This imbalance leads to pathetic ends.As opposed to this, Islam divides its people into two on the basis of their sexes.The two constitute two different circles. As such, men operate in an area that is different from that of the women.Men and women are not thus imprisoned in their circles; they are in fact given freedom to act in their own areas of operation with their individual excellence rather than enter other areas and cause tension there.The line of distinction between the two sexes is known as Purdah (veil) Man has been selected to take care of the affairs of the world outside. This has been done in view of the nature and capabilities that a man has. Similarly, in view of their nature and potential, women have been selected to operate in the inner world. The responsibilities of each group are only appropriate to those who belong to the group.The western society, as you can see of its actions have proved that its ethos has failed in, morality, humanity, and culture. The women have no peace; they go from place to place without success. The western couples separate at a much faster rate than anywhere else.Purdah does not imply that a woman is to be imprisoned behind the walls; it only intends to draw a line between the two societies.Islam does not keep women behind closed doors; it rather gives her a chance to operate freely in her own area. From there she can very well earn her livelihood, and if her conditions allow, she can also join a job and serve socially and politically.She can teach in the educational institutions, go to social clubs but all these may happen separately and not in a mixed manner. There is no denying the fact that men and women are like the two wheels of life’s vehicle. It is only through mutual co-operation that this vehicle can move. Islam also underlines these roles of men and women but it does not, however, support what is said ; Subsequently that men and women should work together. Two wheels can’t move together on a single track. If an effort is made to do so, the vehicle would suffer damage just as society would.It is important to understand the importance of PURDAH at this point.Men and women, according to Islam, have been divided as MAHRAM and NA-MAHRAM.MAHRAM; The prohibited degrees of relationship, i.e. those near blood relatives of the opposite sex with whom marriage is prohibited in Islam.NA-MAHRAM; The person with whom marriage is not prohibited.Concealable Parts of BodyAccording to Islam there are concealable parts of men and women.Concealable parts of women’s body are from the wrists to the ankles. In other words, their entire body, except face, is concealable. The concealable parts of men include the parts from navel down to knee. Men and women are commanded to conceal these parts. They can’t expose them even before persons who belong to the same sex. There are injunctions regarding Purdah that it will be observed with the unknown ones. In sum, it may be said that purdah is an important institution of Islam, without which the society would have suffered irreparable loss.

Nurturing our sense of Gheerah

Sometimes Muslim women don't understand if their men folk want them to cover their faces or if they ask them to change something about the way they dress or speak in public, thinking that the men are being over-protective. But my dear sisters! If your husband asks you not to wear a certain colour of khimaar because it brings out the beauty of your eyes, or if he wants you to cover your face – by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, be thankful! Be proud of the fact that your husband has a sense of Gheerah for you and that he values you and cares for your hereafter. He knows what men can be like more than you do and so never try and suppress his Gheerah in these types of matters. And his concern for you should incite your own sense of honour! Why should any man be able to see your beauty and think indecent thoughts about you? We must nurture our own and our menfolk's sense of Gheerah by behaving and dressing modestly ourselves and paying attention to their valid opinions. We expect certain behaviour from them and they expect it of us. And besides, if our husband asks us to do something that it not Haraam, we must do it.
And Brothers! How can you allow your wife or sister to walk around attracting the attentions and evil-thoughts of other men? How can you not mind if she smiles as she talks to other men. Nobody has the right to enjoy her and her company but you and her Maharim men. You are not being overbearing if you first encourage and then enforce the hijaab on your womenfolk because YOU will be asked about it on the Day of Judgement and it is also a major sin upon YOU! It is upon the men to enforce these things in their homes and you cannot use the excuse that your wife didn't want to. Women need a firm, balanced, guiding hand from their men, so with wisdom you must enforce hijaab in your home. You are a shepard and are responsible for your flock!

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala reminds us all in the Qur'an, the meaning of which is: "Oh you who believe, Protect yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones." (At-Tahreem, Aayah 6)

There is a big difference between how Islam values and protects women and how cheaply women are treated outside of Islam! As Muslims we have to be careful that our Hayaa' (sense of modesty and shame) and Gheerah don't wear out in a society in which people have lost it.

A story of Gheerah

To further understand the quality of Gheerah, we can look at an incident that Asmaa' Radi Allahu anha the daughter of Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq Radi Allahu anhu and sister of Aisha Radi Allahu anha relates about herself. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu anhu was a wealthy merchant and he married his daughter Asmaa' Radi Allahu anha to the great companion Az-Zubayr ibn al-'Awwam Radi Allahu anhu who was a very poor man but a man of great piety and one of the companions who were promised Paradise. Asmaa' Radi Allahu anharelates:
"When az-Zubayr Radi Allahu anhu married me, he had neither land nor wealth nor slave…", so Asmaa' Radi Allahu anha had to work very hard kneading dough, going far off to get water. "And I used to carry on my head," she Radi Allahu anha continues, "the date stones from the land of az-Zubair which Allah's Messenger(Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam) had endowed him and it was a distance of two miles from Madeenah. One day, as I was carrying the date-stones upon my head, I happened to meet Allah's Messenger (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam), along with a group of his Companions. He Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam called me and told the camel to sit down so that he Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam could make me ride behind him. I felt shy to go with men and I remembered az-Zubair Radi Allahu anhu and his Gheerah and he Radi Allahu anhu was a man having the most Gheerah . The Messenger of Allah ( Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam) understood my shyness and left. I came to az-Zubair Radi Allahu anhu and said: "The Messenger of Allah (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam) met me as I was carrying date-stones upon my head and there was with him a group of his Companions. He Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam told the camel to kneel so that I could mount it, but I felt shy and I remembered your Gheerah." So Asmaa' Radi Allahu anha declined the offer made by the Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam. Upon this az-Zubair Radi Allahu anhu said: "By Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, the thought of you carrying date-stones upon your head is more severe a burden on me than you riding with him(Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam)." (Bukhari)

Look at the sense of dignity and modesty of Asmaa' Radi Allahu anha! See how she Radi Allahu anha felt shy in front of men? See how careful she was about her husband's feelings? She knew that her husband had a lot of Gheerah so she didn't want to upset him by accepting the Prophet's Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam help even though the Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam was the purest of men and even though it meant bringing hardship on herself! And look at az-Zubair Radi Allahu anhu, even though he had a lot of Gheerah, he didn't want to inconvenience his wife. What a beautiful relationship they had! (SubhanAllah..)


Gheerah - protecting our honour

Gheerah - protecting our honourWe live in societies in which most men and women have lost their sense of modesty, women are obsessed with their appearances and wear clothes to be seen by others and to attract the attention of other men even if they are married! They have lost their sense of shame. Marriage is often looked upon as old-fashioned and short term affairs and frivolous relationships are the norm, everyone waiting to attract a better partner and feeling totally justified to dump one partner for another at the drop of a hat. Feminism too has reached its peak and men and women are told to suppress their natural emotions. Men are not even embarrassed when their wives are dressed up and attract the attention of other men, they don't mind if another man sees, chats, laughs and even dances with their womenfolk and if they do mind, they are told not to be so possessive!

In Islam we have a concept of Gheerah. Gheerah is an Arabic word which means protectiveness or jealousy. It is a good type of jealousy, like when a man feels jealous or protective over his wife or sisters and other-womenfolk and doesn't like other men to look at them. It is a natural inbuilt feeling Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala has given men and women. The Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam had the most Gheerah for his wives and all of the companions were known for their Gheerah. All Muslim men should have a collective sense of protectiveness for Muslim women as Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says in the Qur'an, the meaning of which is:

"The Men are the protectors and maintainers of women…" (Surah An-Nisaa, Ayah 34)

Men who do not care about how their women behave and appear in front of other men and don't enforce hijaab upon their wives or women-folk are called Dayyooth. Being a Dayyooth is a major sin and a detailed description of this evil characteristic can be found in adh-Dhahabee's book of Major Sins.

Foster Mother

Foster Mother Pharaoh's (Firaun) wife prays to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala that she needs a house in the heaven and she wants Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to save her from Pharaoh (Firaun) and his doings and from those who do wrong. (Qur'an 66:11) One can appreciate her good attitude when she finds the baby [Musa alayhis 'salam] inside the chest. She says that the baby is a pleasure to her eyes and her mother's instinct starts taking over. She says to Pharaoh (Firaun) not to kill the baby and says the baby might be of benefit to them. Here is the mother's instinct that is saying that they will adopt him as a son. (Qur'an 28:9)

Kindness to Mother

Qur'an ordains to be kind to one's parents and especially to the mother (Qur'an 31:14, 46:15). All the family and relationships mentioned in the Qur'an refers to the womb (rahim). Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala instructs not to break the ties of the womb when put in authority (Qur'an 47:22).

Mother of Hazrat Isa alayhis 'salam

Hazrat Maryam Radi Allahu anha's trial was also very strange. Hazrat Maryam Radi Allahu anha a chaste and a respectful person of the society finds all of a sudden that she will have a baby. She seeks refuge in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to protect her. She was wondering how she can have a child affirming her chastity. Qur'an explains the miraculous conception. In the pain of labour, Hazrat Maryam Radi Allahu anha wishes that she would rather die than go through this. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala comforts and guides her. (Qur'an 19:16-25) She delivers the baby and goes back to her people. Her people immediately remind her about her pious and respectful family. And Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala made the newborn defend her mother. Baby Isa (a.s.w.s.) said he is NOT the son of Allah but the servant of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. And Hazrat Isa Radi Allahu anha said he will be kind to his mother. (Quran 19:26-35) We can see the gratitude he had towards his mother who went through all these trials.
