In the Name
of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

The Muslim Ummah is
challenges and Our Duaas are Not Working, even during the Month of
Ramadaan, or on the Night of Lailatul-Qadar, or even on the day of
Arafat at the time of Hajj. Allah accepts Duaas/Prays of True Muslims
only, not Munafiqhs/Hypocrites (Ref: Al_Quraan_002:186, 040:060,
050:016, 009:080). Pious Women had played great roles in building any
Nation and the Quraan has given many examples on it, which includes
many Pious Women including Mary mother of Jesus (Peace-Be-Upon-Him),
wife of the Pharaoh, as well as the wives of Prophet Muhammad
(Peace-Be-Upon-Him), which our sisters can take as a Role Model for
Women. The wives of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) are our
mothers. Take Lessons
from the Quraan and not from hearsay.
of a Concept of a Daycare:
stayed with his foster-mother, Halimah bint Abi Dhuayb, until he was
two years old; that was the Concept of a Daycare.
It is ok to have Daycare
trained women with true love with humanity, can help others to leave
their kids for the day, so that other women can concentrate on their
work. All schools need to upgrade to have daycare facilities with
online monitoring facilities for parents, around the globe, if they
don’t have it yet.
of Business Lady as a Leader of an Organization:
initially worked as a consultant under Hazrat Khadijah (Radi Allahu
Anhu) and later got married with her. It was an example of a Business
Women as a Leader of an Organization. It is ok for women to work or run
businesses etc. by observing Quraanic Veil (Hijaab like women do at
of Female Army Generals & Female Teachers:
Ayisha (Radi-Allahu-Anha) used to Teach Muslims at Masjid-e-Nabwi.
There are many Hadeeth narrated by her. When there were
between Ali (Radi-Allahu-Anhu) during his Khilafat, she had
Lead a Muslim Army
and immediately after clearing the confusions, she returned back home
in support of Hazrat Ali (radiallahu anhu). It is ok for women to Teach
in an institution etc.
and also, she must be ready like a Reserve Force as a second or third
option by observing Quraanic Veil (Hijaab at Hajj) under Quraanic
for House Wives:
Those who are and want
to be a house
wife, in addition to housekeeping they must know Driving, to pick and
drop her kids from school. She must know Math and Science subjects
including Computers, to help her kids succeed in exam as well as to
become a champion in his/her professions under Quraanic Directives.
You also need to learn
societies. It is my personal observations in Canada, where Chinese
communities are doing very well. One of reason I found that they truly
love and help each other. Their retired grandparents look after their
grandkids, while young people male and female work, work and work,
without wasting any time and of course after getting good education
where ever they can. This is one way to boost family economy.
For those whose wives
are working to share their burden, they must help her for housekeeping
etc., under Quraanic Directives.
It is my personal
those who gets retired and do nothing after retirement, many of them
are getting heart stroke, diabetic etc. Try to spend more active time
on learning and teaching the Quraanic Directives. To live healthy you
need a balanced diet and exercises. By doing household works you also
get lots of exercises. Keep in mind, in those areas where people are
having severe food shortage, you will hardly find any obese person.
First symptom that one may get heart stroke, diabetic etc. is his/her
belly getting bigger except for pregnant women.
Right Education, People (Men & Women) and Nations are Blind.
There will be NO CHANGES WITHOUT ACTIONS. (Ref: Al_Quraan_013.011)
Al-Quraan, the Miracle of Miracles and free from contradictions and
