*Four Complete Women*
🌸 Note 1⃣3⃣
Maryam bint Imran – (مريم بنت عمران)
💭 What made her a complete woman❓Zachariah (ra) would always come to her place to give her provision because she doesn’t go out, rather she is worshipping. And every time he would go to her, he would always find some provision with her, subhan Allah❗ And some scholars said she would even have provision that is out of season, subhan Allah❗ And this shows when you devote yourself to Allah (swt), then Allah (swt) will provide you. *Her devotion and worship to Allah (swt) made her complete.* Everyone is different depending on what’s decreed for them. When Zachariah (as) asked her, ‘where did you get this from?’ She said, ‘it’s from Allah’, and this is what’s important. *‘Allah gives provision without account’.* She’s focused on worshipping Allah (swt), not getting provision. She’s complete because she’s relying on Allah (swt) for rizq.
💐 Maryam (as) was single and who said a complete woman needs to be married❓ Allah (swt) praised her and mentioned her name 30 times in the Quran. She is also the mother of a prophet – Eisa (as), and she has a miracle which no one has ever had. Allah (swt) knows what each person can handle.
💐 Maryam’s father passed away, and the one taking charge of her was Zachariah (as). Did he tell her to go and work and provide for herself❓ No. Before Zachariah (as) came to provide her, Allah (swt) is already providing her with no limit, no hisab. People think everything has hisab – you work and you will get provision. But Maryam (as) is not working and she’s provided, subhan Allah❗ Allah (swt) is giving her before Zachariah (as). When you’re serving Allah (swt), Allah (swt) will give you from where you can’t imagine. What you think about Allah (swt) is how He will deal with you – if you think He will give you without limit, then He will. The shaitan makes you think ‘I’m not working, I don’t have a husband’ so how will I be provided❓Allah (swt) provided Maryam with no hisab. She was complete because she was not stressed; she knows Allah (swt) will provide for her with no hisab.
✨ Surah Al Imran 42-43:
(وَإِذۡ قَالَتِ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕڪَةُ يَـٰمَرۡيَمُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ ٱصۡطَفَٮٰكِ وَطَهَّرَكِ وَٱصۡطَفَٮٰكِ عَلَىٰ نِسَآءِ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ (٤٢) يَـٰمَرۡيَمُ ٱقۡنُتِى لِرَبِّكِ وَٱسۡجُدِى وَٱرۡكَعِى مَعَ ٱلرَّٲكِعِينَ (٤٣))
_(And (remember) when the angels said: “O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allâh has chosen you, purified you (from polytheism and disbelief), and chosen you above the women of the ‘Alamîn (mankind and jinn).” (42) O Mary! “Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord (Allâh, by worshipping none but Him Alone) and prostrate yourself, and Irkâ’i (bow down) along with Ar-Râki’ûn (those who bow down).” (43))_
💐 Maryam (as) was receiving worldly provision, but now she’s receiving inspirations from the angels. Allah (swt) chose her from everyone and this shows Allah (swt) chooses whomever He wills, and she is a role model for all ladies of the world. We need to take her as an example. People like role models and Maryam (as) is the role model for women, subhan Allah❗ What made her to be a role model❓She’s a pure and chaste woman – she’s guarding her honor. *The more you are guarding your chastity and honor, the more you are complete*It’s not the other way around where the more open you are, the more you have value. Allah (swt) made Maryam (as) a devotee, provided her provision, and purified her. This makes her complete.
