Everything that happens to you for the sake of Allâh is an expiation for you, if Allâh, the Exalted wills. Hear the glad tidings narrated in the Hadîth:
“If a woman obeys her Lord, offers her five daily prayers and preserves her honour, she will enter the Paradise of her Lord.”
These are easy matters for the one for whom Allâh makes them easy. So, by doing these great deeds you will meet a merciful Lord who will give you happiness in this world and in the Hereafter. Follow His laws no matter where that leads you, and adhere to the Book of Allâh (the Qur’an) and the Sunnah of His Messenger Muhammad (Blessings and Peace be upon him), for you are a Muslim woman, and this is a great honour and source of pride. Other women were born in the lands of Kufr (disbelief), Christians, Jews, Communists or something other than the religion of Islâm, but Allâh chose you to be a Muslim woman, and He made you one of the followers of Muhammad (Blessings and Peace be upon him), following in the footsteps of ‘A’ishah, Khadîjah and Fâtimah – may Allâh be pleased with them all.
Congratulations, for you offer the five daily prayers, you fast in Ramadân, you go on pilgrimage to the House, you observe Islâmic Hijâb.
Congratulations, for you are pleased with Allâh as your Lord, Islâm as your religion, and Muhammad (Blessings and Peace be upon him) as your Prophet.
