Woman in Islam

Some of hadiths about woman:

Women in Islam as a Mother

[Transmitted by Sahih Bukhari]
A man enquired: "O Allah's Apostle Muhammad (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam):
Who is the most proper person in my association? Allah's Apostle Muhammad (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) replied: "Your Mother."
Then he asked: who is next? He (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) replied: "Your Mother".
Then he asked : who is next? He (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) replied: "Your Mother".
Then he asked: who is next? He (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) replied : "Your Father".


Women in Islam as a Daughter

[Transmitted by Abu Dawud]
"If anybody has got a female child, and then does neither bury her alive, nor treats her unjustly, nor prefers his (male) children to her, Allah will admit him in Paradise".

[Transmitted by Sahih Muslim]
"Whoever maintains two girls till they attain maturity, he and I will come on Resurrection Day like this; and he joined his fingers."

[Transmitted by Ibn Majah]
"Shall I not teach you the best form of Charity? (maintaining) your daughter who has been returned to you, who has no earning member except you."

Women in Islam as a Wife

[Transmitted by Tirmizi]
" The most perfect in believers in faith is one who is best of them in conduct, and the best of you are those who are best to their wives."

[Transmitted by Abu Naeem]
"When a woman says his five (prayers) and fasts her month, and guard her private parts, and obeys her husband, let her enter Paradise by whichever door she likes."

[Transmitted by Abu Dawud]
"Never beat your wife like your beating of your slave girl".


Anâs Radhi-Allâhu 'anhu reports that Nabî Sallallâhu 'alayhi wasallam has said: "From among the women of the world who have reached perfection and who are worthy of following are (the following four):
Miryam the daughter of Imrân;
Khadija daughter of Khuwailid;
Fatima daughter of Muhammad
and Asiyah wife of Fir'aun" (Tirmidhi)

The Qur’an states categorically that men and women who practice the principles of Islam will receive equal reward for their efforts. (Qur’an 33:35).

In the first verse of the chapter entitled An-Nissa’ (The Women), Allah says:

“O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it its mate and from them both have spread abroad a multitude of men and women. Be careful of your duty toward Allah in Whom you claim (your rights) of one another, and towards the wombs (that bore you). Lo! Allah has been a Watcher over you.” (Qur’an 4:1)

The Qur’an states:

“By the creation of the male and female; Verily, (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.” (Qur’an 92:3-4)

In these verses, Allah declares that He created men and women to be different, with unique roles, functions and skills. As in society, where there is a division of labor, so too in a family; each member has different responsibilities. Generally, Islam upholds that women are entrusted with the nurturing role, and men, with the guardian role. Therefore, women are given the right of financial support.

Last night, The Sheikh said that the best of guide in family is woman.
She is the queen in the family.
She is the maker in the family.
She takes care of the family.

Man is always out side from home. Man is 711. He works from 7 am to 11 pm.
He never sees the children.
He only meets the family on holiday.

There is hadith:
Hadith - Al-Tirmidhi #3254, Narrated Anas ibn Malik
Allah's Messenger said, "When a woman observes the five times of prayer, fasts during Ramadan, preserves her chastity and obeys her husband, she may enter by any of the gates of Paradise she wishes." [AbuNu'aym transmitted it in al-Hilyah.]

The woman says the first three is easy to do. Only the last one that is very difficult to do, because the problem is in her husband himself.

The lecture finished because the pizza was coming.
All the women in the masjid laughed.

What do you think, my sisters in Islam?
Can we do all the four things above? Insha Allah, we can.

May Allah help us to do all the good deeds. Ameen.
