"With my veil I put my faith on display – rather than my beauty. My value as a human is defined by my relationship with God, not by my looks. I cover the irrelevant. And when you look at me, you don’t see a body. You view me only for what I am: a servant of my Creator.
You see, as a Muslim woman, I’ve been liberated from a silent kind of bondage. I don’t answer to the slaves of God on earth. I answer to their King"
”نِعمَ النَّساءُ نِساءُ الأنصار لـَم يَمنَعهُنَّ الحَيَاءُ أنْ يَتَفَقَّهْنَ فِي الدِّين“
Trust me; there is no substitute for being able to look in the mirror and seeing purity, innocence and self-respect staring back at you.

Your most valuable assets are your inner beauty, your innocence, and everything that makes you who you are. But I notice that some Muslim women push the limit and try to be as Western as possible, even while wearing a veil (with some of their hair showing). Why imitate women who already regret, or will soon regret, their lost virtue? There is no compensation for that loss. You are flawless diamonds. Don’t let them trick you into becoming rhinestones. Because everything you see in the fashion magazines and on Western television is a lie. It is Satan’s trap. It is fool’s gold.
A woman’s heart is the same everywhere. We love. That’s what we do best. We nurture our families and give comfort and strength to the men we love. But we American women have been fooled into believing that we are happiest having careers, our own homes in which to live alone, and freedom to give our love away to whomever we choose. That is not freedom. And that is not love. Only in the safe haven of marriage can a woman’s body and heart be safe to love.
Sayyidah Aasiyah (Rahmatullahi Alayha) and the Persecution of Firawn
Sayyidah Aasiyah (Rahmatullahi Alayha) was the wife of Fir’awn who had brought Imaan on Hadhrat Moosa (Alayhis Salaam). Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Fir’awn had pegged both her hands and feet into the ground with nails and left her in the scorching heat. He had not yet completed doing this when the angels formed a shade over her. At this point she supplicated,
رَبِّ ابْنِ لِي عِندَكَ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ
O my Lord, build for me a house by You in Paradise.
She had witnessed her heavenly abode as she drew her last breaths in this world. (Final Moments of the Pious pg. 91)
A righteous wife/mother is one who is organised in everything, from household chores and upbringing her children to worshipping Allah!
