My sister, verily with every difficulty there is ease (Qur’an 94:6); after night comes the day. The clouds of worry will be blown away, the darkness of distress will be dispelled, and calamities will come to an end, by Allâh’s leave. Remember that you will be rewarded, and if you are a mother, your children will be a great support and help for Islâm, if you bring them up properly. They will make du’â’ for you when they prostrate and at the end of the night, just before dawn. It is a great blessing if you are a compassionate and kind mother. It is sufficient honour and pride for you to remember that the mother of Muhammad (Blessings and Peace be upon him) gave mankind a great leader, the noble Messenger.
You have the potential to be a dâ’iyah (caller to Islâm) calling other women to the path of Allâh with kind words, good exhortation and wisdom, arguing in a manner that is better, debating and guiding others by means of your good behaviour and setting an example. A woman may achieve, by means of her conduct and righteous deeds, things that cannot be achieved by Khutbahs (religious sermons), lectures and lessons. How often has a woman gone to live in a neighbourhood, and people started to talk about her religious commitment, modesty, hijâb (Islâmic dress) and good attitude, her kindness to her neighbours and her obedience to her husband, so she became a good example to others – that was spoken by all.
“Soon the flowers will bloom, grief will depart and happiness will prevail.”
