Pearl of Wisdom

'When Asma' bint 'Umays returned from Ethiopia with her husband Ja'far b. Abi Talib, she visited the wives of the Prophet (SAWA) and asked them, 'Does the Qur'an say anything about us [women]?' They said, 'No.' So, she went to the Prophet (SAWA) and said, ?O Messenger of Allah, the women are indeed at a loss and failure!' He asked, 'Why is that?' She said, 'Because they are not mentioned with goodness like men are.' So Allah sent down this verse: Indeed for Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's remembrance, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward ?
