One night while Ameerul Mu’mineen Umar bin Khattab (radiyallahu anhu) was doing his rounds in Madinah Munawwarah, he leaned against a wall and overheard a unique conversation between a young girl and her mother. The mother instructed the girl to add water to the milk that was to be sold the next day. The girl replied: “O my mother! Aren’t you aware of the order that Ameerul Mu’mineen has passed today?” The mother inquired as to what was the order. The daughter replied: “He ordered someone to announce that water should not be added to milk (since this was deception).” The mother said to her: “O my daughter! Just add the water since you are in such a place where neither Umar can see you nor the one who has made the announcement on his behalf.” The daughter replied: “O my beloved mother! I cannot be so dishonest to obey him in open and disobey him in private.”

Step back a moment and reflect . . . Imagine . . . Think of a woman who has experienced all the ups and downs of life, enduring the death of one husband after the other, going through the difficulty of earning for herself due to her circumstances, suffering the heartache of the divorce of her daughters because of her faith, living in a home that was constantly beset with abuse and persecution for the sake of her Rabb, going into exile in her old age, tolerating adverse conditions of hunger and starvation . . . yet still maintaining the same intense love for her husband like a newly-wed bride . . . yet still dedicated to him with her heart and soul, totally compliant with her mind and body . . . yet still pouring every vestige of her strength in nurturing her children . . . yet still spending large amounts of money for the cause of her faith with a smile ... yet still motivating those around her despite the hostile environment . . .

An intelligent woman, a sincere philanthropist, a pious soul, a patient human, a devoted wife, a caring spouse, a loyal partner, a loving mother, an expert homemaker . . . The Ideal Woman and a dream for many . . . This was Sayyidah Khadeejah Al-Kubraa (radiyallahu anha).

Indeed, this superwoman had supported Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) when he had no worldly resources; trusted and believed in him when most had denied him; encouraged and understood him when he took up the call with trembling steps; withstood persecution, insults, threats and torture and was a lifelong helpmate of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) till her last breath at the age of sixty five.

Shaikh Abur Rabee’ (rahimahullah) relates the following incident: 

I once heard of a very pious lady by the name of Fidh-dhah who lived in a certain village. This woman, Fidh-dhah, was rapidly gaining fame as word of an amazing phenomenon regarding her spread among people. Although we do not visit women, due to the necessity to investigate and ascertain the reality and authenticity of this rumour, I took a group of people and travelled to her village. 

On arriving in the village and making enquiries, the people of the village informed us that Fidh-dhah possessed a she goat that yielded both milk and honey. Hearing this, we bought a brand new bowl and proceeded to her home.

Pious women in Ramadaan

Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhalwi (rahmatullahi alaih) mentioned regarding his daughters that during the month of Ramadaan despite them taking care of their many children and seeing to their household duties, they remained awake for long durations at night, to hear the recitation of the Quraan Majeed from different reciters. Together with this, they compete with each other to recite at least fourteen or fifteen paras (juz) of the Quraan Majeed during the day. 

As for Moulana’s grandmother, her daily practice outside the month of Ramadaan was that together with reciting approximately 7 paras (juz) of the Quraan Majeed, she would recite different tasbeehaat about seventeen thousand times. In the month of Ramadaan she used to recite 40 paras (juz) of the Quraan Majeed daily. Moulana’s great grandmother had the opportunity of hearing the entire Quraan being recited by her son in one rakaat. (Akaabir ka Ramadaan, pg. 72-73).

These were pious women of our recent past and it is now up to us to also apply ourselves in the worship of Allah Ta’ala.
