The Ideal Muslimah- 2nd lecture- teacher Umm Yusuf



Chapter 1: The Muslim Woman and Her Rabb

The Believing Woman is Alert (cont.) (p.9)


1.   The pure, deep faith which increases the character of the Muslim woman in strength, understanding and maturity, so that she sees life as it really is, which is a place of testing whose results will be seen on the Day which will undoubtedly  will come.

a.    This word is a place of testing for the slaves of Allah

Allah says: “Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods, lives and the fruits (of your toil) but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. Those who, when misfortune strikes them, say: ‘Indeed we belong to Allah and to Him is our return. Those are the ones upon whom are blessings and mercy from their Lord and it is those who are rightly guided.” [Sûrah al-Baqarah: 155]

b. About the balance on the Day of Judgment

We shall set up scales of justice for the day of Judgement, so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be [no more than] the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it [to account]: and enough are We to take account.)  (Sûrah Al-Anbiyaa:47)

“… So as for those whose scale (of good deeds) will be heavy, they will be the successful (by entering Paradise). And as for those whose scale will be light, they are those who will lose their ownselves (by entering Hell) because they denied and rejected Our Ayat.” [Sûrah Al-A’raaf:8-9].


1.                             Deeds are weighed
2.  The person, himself, is weighed
3.  His book of records is weighed


2.                  She Worships Allah

It is no surprise that the true Muslim woman enthusiastically worships her Lord, because she knows that she is obliged to observe all the commandments that Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has enjoined upon every Muslim, male or female. So she carries out her Islamic duties properly, without making excuses or compromises, or being negligent.

      a. She prays five times a day on time
      b. Praying in the Masjid

In accordance with the Prophet's teaching which allowed women to attend the masjid, and forbade men to stop them from doing so, the Masjids were full of women coming and going, both at the time of the Prophet (salla Allahu alihi wa sallam), and whenever it was possible in the following periods.

The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alihi wa sallam) said: "Any women who has perfumed herself with incense should not attend `isha' prayers with us." {Bukhari and Muslim}
