*Four Complete Women*
🌸 Note 1⃣4⃣
Maryam bint Imran – (مريم بنت عمران)
🌹Allah (swt) chose her over all of women – her position is very high. She’s focused on worshipping Allah (swt) and guarding her chastity. What is she commanded to do❓(اقنتي لربك) – *devote yourself to your Rabb, this is her completeness.* For Asiya, her strength is through patience, for Khadija (ra) is through her support to her husband, and for Maryam (as) it’s through her devotion. Islam gives so much honor to the lady and the lady has strength because society depends on the woman. Who can face the tyrant❓A woman. Who can support the messenger❓A woman. Maryam’s strength is her devotion. As a single woman, your strength is when you devote yourself to Allah (swt) and guard your honor. How will she be a devotee❓
🌟 Increase in the prayer and worship.
🌾 People bring negativity if you’re not married, but whatever Allah (swt) decrees for you is the best.
👑 Allah (swt) honored Maryam (as) by having an entire surah named after her, subhan Allah❗
✨ Surah Maryam 16-21:
(وَٱذۡكُرۡ فِى ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ مَرۡيَمَ إِذِ ٱنتَبَذَتۡ مِنۡ أَهۡلِهَا مَكَانً۬ا شَرۡقِيًّ۬ا (١٦) فَٱتَّخَذَتۡ مِن دُونِهِمۡ حِجَابً۬ا فَأَرۡسَلۡنَآ إِلَيۡهَا رُوحَنَا فَتَمَثَّلَ لَهَا بَشَرً۬ا سَوِيًّ۬ا (١٧) قَالَتۡ إِنِّىٓ أَعُوذُ بِٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ مِنكَ إِن كُنتَ تَقِيًّ۬ا (١٨) قَالَ إِنَّمَآ أَنَا۟ رَسُولُ رَبِّكِ لِأَهَبَ لَكِ غُلَـٰمً۬ا زَڪِيًّ۬ا (١٩) قَالَتۡ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لِى غُلَـٰمٌ۬ وَلَمۡ يَمۡسَسۡنِى بَشَرٌ۬ وَلَمۡ أَكُ بَغِيًّ۬ا (٢٠) قَالَ كَذَٲلِكِ قَالَ رَبُّكِ هُوَ عَلَىَّ هَيِّنٌ۬ۖ وَلِنَجۡعَلَهُ ۥۤ ءَايَةً۬ لِّلنَّاسِ وَرَحۡمَةً۬ مِّنَّاۚ وَكَانَ أَمۡرً۬ا مَّقۡضِيًّ۬ا (٢١))
_(And mention in the Book (the Qur’ân, O Muhammad ﷺ , the story of) Maryam (Mary), when she withdrew in seclusion from her family to a place facing east (16) She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our Ruh [angel Jibril (Gabriel)], and he appeared before her in the form of a man in all respects. (17) She said: “Verily! I seek refuge with the Most Gracious (Allâh) from you, if you do fear Allâh.” (18) (The angel) said: “I am only a messenger from your Lord, (to announce) to you the gift of a righteous son.” (19) She said: “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?” (20) He said: “So (it will be), your Lord said: ‘That is easy for Me (Allâh): And (We wish) to appoint him as a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us (Allâh), and it is a matter (already) decreed, (by Allâh).’ ” (21))_
🌾 Maryam (as) was devoted and focused in worship. Allah (swt) chooses whomever He wills to be a devotee. A complete woman doesn’t expose herself – she guards her chastity. She took a veil. When there are paintings of Maryam, you see her with a hijab. People think hijab is just linked to Arabs, but Maryam (as) is the role model of wearing the hijab, subhan Allah❗
