Pearl of Wisdom

from Asma' bint Yazid al-Ansari that she went to the Prophet (SAWA) whilst he was with his companions, and said, may my mother and father be ransomed for you! I come to you representing women, and know may my soul be sacrificed for you that there is no woman that exists in the east or the west who does not agree with me if she was to hear of my visit to you. Allah sent you with the truth to men and women, so we believed in you and in your God who sent you. We women are restricted and limited, confined to your [men's] houses, fulfillers of your desires, bearers of your children, and you men are superior to us because of the Friday and congregational prayers, visiting the sick, participating in burials, pilgrimage after pilgrimage, and better than all that, fighting (jihad) in the path of Allah. When a man from among you goes for the obligatory or voluntary pilgrimage, or is stationed away from home, we protect your property for you, sew your clothes, bring up your children, so what do we share with The Prophet (SAWA) turned his whole face to his companions and said, 'Have you ever heard a woman speaking better than she has in her asking about her religion?' They said, ?O Messenger of Allah, we did not think that a woman could be so guided like this!' The Prophet (SAWA) then turned towards her and said, 'Leave, O woman, and inform the women after you that for one of you to be a good spouse to her husband, her seeking his satisfaction and her following of what he approves is equivalent to all that you mentioned.' So the woman left, saying: 'There is no god but Allah (la ilaha illallah) and aggrandizing Allah (Allahu Akbar) with happiness.'

In the Holy Qur'an


Successful indeed are the believers who are humble in their prayers (23:1-2)

In the Traditions


O God,

bless Muhammad and His Household,
delight my soul through Thy decree,
expand my breast through the instances of Thy decision,
give to me a trust through which i may admint
that Thy decree runs only to the best,

and let my gratitude to Thee
for what Thou hast taken away from me
be more abundant than my gratitude to Thee
for what Thou hast conferred upon me!

Preserve me from imagining any meanness
in someone who is destitute
or imagining any superiority
in someone who posseses wealth,

for the noble is he
whom obedience to Thee has ennobled
and the exalted is he
whom worship of Thee has exalted!
