Following in the footsteps of . . . GREAT WOMEN (Part 2)

Attachment to worship: Immaterial of what work she may be involved in, once she would hear the muazzin saying “hayya alas salaah” she would leave everything and get up for salaah. Every morning after fajr salaah, she would cover her face with her scarf and engage in the zikr of Allah Ta’ala with great amount of punctuality. She would never miss this under any condition. (Sawaanihe Qaasimi vol.1, pg. 519) 

Lesson: Those whose hearts are attached to Allah Ta’ala are unable to continue doing anything else when the time to stand in front of their Master has come. She practically imparted the lesson that salaah is the most important aspect in a believer’s life. Furthermore, her punctuality in zikr obviously contributed very greatly to her high rank and position. Zikr is the food for the heart. Just as a person who has not eaten food for a few days will become extremely weak and even bed – ridden, likewise the one who starves his/her soul by not engaging daily in zikr will become spiritually very weak. Gradually such a person will lose all interest in righteous actions and many sins will creep in her life.

Smile Away Sadness

A pleasant countenance is also one of the bounties of Allah Ta’ala. A simple way of removing ones grief and keeping happy is to smile at everyone. It is obvious that a woman is not permitted to smile at a strange man. In fact, smiling at strange men will only increase her grief. Put it to the test, smile at someone and automatically that person smiles back. The heart is almost delighted when a person with a happy countenance is seated near one. On the other hand everyone wishes to distance themselves from a person who is straight faced and grumpy. Smiling and cheerfulness is a very healthy form of exercise. If facilitates the digestion of the food. The happiness of the heart is as effective as good medication. If we want good for ourself, we will continue smiling. Together with a smiling face, let our eyes also smile. Be happy and make others happy as well.
