Almighty Allah has Honored Women!


When the Holy Messenger Abraham, peace be upon him, left his wife, the Lady Hajra and their son, Ismail, peace be upon them, in the valley of Makkah, in accordance with Allah’s Will,she asked her husband if Allah had commanded him to do so. When he replied yes, she became content with her condition. This is what makes the difference between a wife and a companion:  a wife has rights of which she can complain.  

Lady Hajra was concerned about finding water for herself and her son. She ran back and forth between the two hills of Safa and Marwa looking for water. Allah, the Most High, sent an angel who dug his foot into the sand and the spring of Zam Zam welled up, providing cool and refreshing water to mother and child. To this day and for all times to come, millions upon millions of Muslims,  as one of the religious rites of the Hajj pilgrimage ,  run between Safa and Marwa in emulation of  Lady Hajra and drink from the same spring of Zam Zam because Allah has so honoured the companion and mother of Messengers. Yet, she herself was not a Messenger.  

Praise and thanks be to Almighty Allah, the Lord of Mankind, Who sent His Messengers as guides for humanity, and their illustrious consorts who exemplify the honor, dignity, and high status that He, the Exalted, has bestowed upon all women!
