A Word for Women

AsSalam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu

A word for Women

By Shaykh Badiuddeen Shah ar-Raashidee as-Sindhee from "Khutubaat Raashidiyyah"

Translated By: Abu Ahmad

source: therighteouspath. com

The mother of the believers Aa'ishah, radiallaahu , has narrated more than two thousand Ahadith. She was the teacher of all in knowledge and jurisprudence. The Sahaaba used to turn to her (for solutions) for the biggest of the issues.
After the Aayah of Ah zaab was revealed the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu alaihi wasllam asked her to consult with her father (Abu Bakr) and decide if she would prefer the splendor of this world or The hereafter(i. e. the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)? The mother of the believers, Aa'ishah radiallaahu  said in reply, 'I need no consultation in this matter with my parents, I prefer the Aakhirah (i.e. the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) better than this world.'
Asma' bint Umais radiallaahu anha, the wife of Abu Bakr radiallaahu anhu was a very patient woman. When she learnt about The killing of her son, Muhammad  bin Abee Bakr radiallaahu anhu , then instead of crying and wailing, she took control over her anger and sat in the Masjid quietly. Due to which she bled.
The Taabi'iyyah, Ummus Suhba' was a worshipping and abstentious woman. Inher illness she was presented with a special kind of intoxicant in a cup. She supplicated to Allaah, 'O Allaah! If You know that Your Messenger has indeed forbidden this intoxicant, then safeguard me from it and cure me with out using it.' (Then) the cup broke and The intoxicant flowed down and she was cured.
(She) used to wake up in the night and say, that she was astonished about her eyes, that they knew that they had to sleep for a long time in the grave and in spite of that they want to sleep here!!
 [Translators Footnote] This is a part of a Khutbah by Allaamah Shaykh Badiuddeen ar-Raashidee as-Sindhee taken from Khutubaat Raashidiyyah. p.122-123 The title is chosen by the Translator.
[Translators Footnote] "O Prophet (Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)! Say to your wives: If you desire the life of this world, and its glitter, Then come! I will makea provision for you and set you free in a handsome manner (divorce)." (Surah Al-Ahzab 33:28)
 [Translators Footnote] There seems to be some words missing here. It is not clear if what follows is said about the Ummus Suhba' or someone else.
Umm ad-Darda' as-Sugraa was told that someone is complaining (or mentioning something wrong) about you to The Khalifa Abdul Maalik. Then she replied thatshe did not care, if someone has illegally accused me then someone must haveillegally praised me as well (which I may not deserve ).
When Laila, the grandmother of Khalifah Umar bin Abdul Azeez, was a small child, one elderly lady from the household told her when the latter part of thenight had set in that, 'Add water to the milk as it is time for morning.' She replied,'How can I add water to the milk when the Ameer ul-Mu'mineen (Umar radiallaahu anhu) has forbidden it.' The woman said, 'O you foolish one! IsAmeer ul-Mu'mineed looking right now?' The little girl replied, 'But Allaah iswatching me! I will not do such a thing.'
There are many such incidents from which my sisters can take a lesson. I would ask them that instead of other stories and novels they take up studying the translations of Qur'an and Hadeeth. Due to which not only will they correct themselves but their children as well will gain benefit from it. Allaah Ta'alaa commanded the Messenger's sallallaah u alaihi wasallam wives that the recitationof Qur'an and Hadeeth should be done in their homes.
And your homes should be like theirs, such that the Qur'an and Hadeeth isrecited and the translations are studied and they are memorized.
[Translators Footnote] This addition mentioned in the same story narrated on page 99
Seerah Umar bin Abdil Azeez by Abdullaah bin Abdil H akim p.17-18
[Translators Footnote] The author is referring to this Aayah. "And remember (O you the members of the Prophet's family, the G races of your Lord), that which is recited in your houses of the Vers es of Allaah and al-Hikmah (i.e. Prophet's Sunnah)." (Surah Al-Ahzab 33:34)
