Maryam (AS), (Mary) Mother of Prophet Isa (Jesus) (AS). A role model for Sisters in Islam.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Maryam, (Mary), (Alaiha Salaam), Mother of Prophet Isa (Jesus) (Alaihi Salaam)

A role model for all of my dear sisters in Islam.

Maryam (AS), the mother of Prophet Isa (AS) was a remarkable woman. She was one of the greatest women of her time. She was devoted to the worship of Allah (SWT) and remained on the straight path despite many hardships and trials.

Below is her story (in brief) beginning with her mother’s supplication to Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, and through the birth of Maryam’s son, Prophet Isa  (Jesus) (AS).

May we all learn from her devotion, her sacrifices, and her obedience to Allah (SWT), Insha’Allah!

Maryam’s (AS) mother, Hannah bind Faqudh was the wife of Imran. Hannah wanted very much to have children, but she was unable to conceive. She supplicated to Allah (SWT) to grant her offspring and Allah (SWT) accepted her supplication.  Hannah soon became pregnant with child.

When she became aware that Allah (SWT) had accepted her supplication, she was so thankful to Allah for answering her supplication that she said:

“O my Lord! I have vowed to You what is in my womb to be dedicated for Your services (free from all worldly work; to serve Your Place of worship), so accept this, from me. Verily, You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.” (3:35)

Hannah certainly did not know whether or not she was carrying a male or female child when she made this supplication. When she finally gave birth, she said:

 “Oh my Lord! I have given birth to a female child” – and Allah knew better what she delivered, “And the male is not like the female, and I have named her Maryam (AS). I seek refuge with You for her and for her offspring from Shaytan, the outcast.” (3:36)

 

 

Although Hannah was worried that a daughter may not be able to fulfill her vow to Allah (SWT), He accepted Hannah’s supplication for the protection of her newborn child, Maryam (AS).

He provided for her, and put her under the care of Zakariyya (AS), her brother in law, who was a Prophet of the Children of Israel at that time.

Whenever Zakariyya (AS) visited Maryam (AS) as she was growing into adulthood, he always found her supplied with an abundance of provision. He would find her with winter fruit during the summer, and summer fruit during the winter.

Zakariyya (AS) would ask Maryam (AS):

“From where have you gotten this?”  Maryam (AS) would reply, “It is from Allah (SWT). Verily, Allah (SWT) provides sustenance to whom He wills, without limits.” ( 3:37) 

 

As Maryam grew up and became a woman, The angels said to her:

“O Maryam! Verily, Allah has chosen you, purified you and chosen you above the women of the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinns) of her lifetime.” “O Maryam! Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord and prostrate yourself, and bow down along with those who bow down (Imran: 42-43)

 

Maryam eagerly accepted Allah’s (SWT) command and she became devoted to the worship of Allah (SWT).  She would often seclude herself from her family to worship Allah (SWT), and she became well know for her remarkable acts of worship, devotion, and perseverance.

Allah (SWT) made her grow in good manner, and be well liked. He made her accompany the righteous peoples so that she learned righteousness, knowledge, and religion.

During her time in seclusion, Allah (SWT) sent down the Angel Jibreel and he appeared to Maryam (AS) in the form of a man. When Maryam (AS) saw this man, who had come to her while she was in seclusion, she became very afraid of him. She thought that he had come to hurt her.

She said to him, “I seek refuge with the Most Gracious from you, if you do fear Allah.” (Maryam: 18).

(Maryam was trying to remind him, The Angel Jibreel, of Allah (SWT).

Jibreel responded: I am only a Messenger from your Lord, to announce to you the gift of a righteous son.

 

”Maryam (AS) asked, “How can I have a son? I have no husband and I do not commit any wicked acts – no may has touched me.” (Maryam: 19-20).

 

Jibreel responded:

 “Verily, Allah has said that a boy will be born to you. Verily, Allah is the Most Able to do whatever He wills.  Allah wished to a appoint this child as a sign to mankind. A mercy from Allah, and it is a matter already decree by Allah.” (Maryam: 21)

 

Maryam knew that this was going to be a difficult trial for her and she feared what would happen when she returned to her people. As Maryam (AS) was giving birth in seclusion and was in the pain of childbirth, she said that she wished that she had not been created. She knew what lay ahead and that when she brought her baby back to her people, they would surely reject her.

Through Prophet Isa (AS), Allah (SWT) told her not to grieve, she would be taken care of and her proof would be established.

 

“Then the baby cried unto her from below her, saying, “Grieve not! Your Lord has provided a water stream under you” (Maryam: 24)

 

Maryam gave birth to Isa [Jesus] (AS).

As Maryam (AS) prepared to bring her child back to her people, she was instructed by Allah, through the infant Isa (AS) to fast and to use gestures, no words, to let others know that she had vowed a fast unto Allah (SWT) and would not speak to any human on that day, a vow of silence. Maryam (AS) accepted this command from Allah (SWT).

Maryam (AS) was told that Prophet Isa (AS) would make a statement to the people. Maryam (AS) again accepted the command of Allah (SWT) and took her child back to her people.

When she arrived, the people did reject her. They accused her of committing adultery!

Throughout all of the ridicule and degradation that she was enduring, Maryam (AS) continued to direct the people’s attention to Isa (AS). They began to get very angry and felt that she was mocking them. Maryam (AS) however persisted with Allah’s (SWT) command. She remained silent as her people doubted her, slandered her, and condemned her. She pointed to Isa (AS) in his cradle, as a sign to have the people listen to him, but they asked:

 “How can we talk to a child in a cradle?”

 

“He, Isa, said: Verily! I am a slave of Allah, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet.” (Maryam: 29-30)

 

This statement would be a declaration of Maryam’s (AS) innocence from all of the horrible allegations made against her.

We all know that Prophet Isa (AS) was a great Prophet of Allah (SWT).  Allah (SWT) honored Maryam (AS), due to her obedience to Him, by  allowing her to be the mother of Prophet Isa (AS).

Allah (SWT) provided for her always and she praised Him and thanked Him throughout her life.

~~

All of these acts of worship and obedience to Allah (SWT), before, during, and after the birth of Prophet Isa (AS)  show us of the devotion of Maryam (AS) in worship to Allah (SWT). She was put through a tremendous test and she put all of her trust in Allah (SWT). She had been tormented, ridiculed, and accused of horrendous acts, but she remained steadfast throughout.

Allah (SWT) chose Maryam (AS) to be the mother of Prophet Isa (AS) because of her service to Him, her modesty, her honor, her innocence, her piety, and her conviction.

Allah (SWT), through the angels, commanded Maryam (AS) to increase acts of worship, humbleness, submission, prostration, bowing, and so forth so that she would acquire what He had decreed for her.

Maryam’s (AS) acts earned her a higher grade in this life, the honor to be the mother of Prophet Isa (AS), and a higher grade in the Hereafter.

Maryam (AS) was the best woman of her time. She achieved a level of perfection. During Maryam’s lifetime, only two women had reached this level of perfection: Maryam (AS), daughter of Imran, and Asiah, wife of Fi’raun.

~~

Dear Sisters in Islam, let us not forget what Maryam (AS) had done (total devotion and worship) and the rewards that she received from Allah (SWT).

~~

How can Maryam (AS) teach us through her behavior?

How can we learn from her?

How can we learn to put complete trust in Allah (SWT) as she did?

Allah (SWT) has provided us with a gift by sharing the revelations regarding Maryam (AS). He has provided us with a great role model.

Just as Maryam (AS) had done, let us increase our acts of worship, our humbleness, our modesty, our submission, our devotion, and our perseverance.

Let us be in the company of righteous people so that we may stay on the straight path towards Allah (SWT).

 We, as Muslims, have been given a gift, a great blessing from Allah (SWT).

We have been chosen by Him to worship Him!

Alhamdulillah.

We need to be mindful of this great blessing throughout our trials, our suffering, and throughout all of the blessings bestowed upon us.  We must be forever thankful that we were chosen by Allah (SWT).

As we prepare for each of our Salah, let us put aside our distracting thoughts, our “list” of things to do, our frustrations and our desires.

Let us ask of Allah (SWT) to guide us, to help us perfect our Salah.

Let us remember to be thankful to Allah (SWT) throughout our day.

Let us make Duaa asking for Allah’s (SWT) forgiveness, guidance, and strength throughout the day.

Let us be role models for our young sisters, our daughters, and our new sisters.

Alhamdulillah.

Let us protect or modesty, increase our khushoo, be charitable, be kind, and continue to nourish our hearts with Islam, Insha’Allah.

May we all be rewarded with Jannatul Firdous.  Ameen.

Remember my dear sisters in Islam, Allah (SWT) said:

“When My servants ask about Me, I am indeed close to them.

 I listen to the prayer of every supplicant, when he calls on Me.

 Let them also, with a will, listen to My call, and believe in Me, so that they may walk in the right way” (2:186)

 

 

In honor of The Transit of Venus: “The Biggest”

In honor of the recent “Transit of Venus”, I thought that I would share the following information with you.

SubhanAllah, this is an amazing document. I cannot take credit for it, as it was shared with me a few years ago.

JazakAllah Khair to the one who took the time to put this all together.

InshaAllah, you will enjoy this as much as I do!

Alhamdulillah, this is a wonderful reminder of Our Creator, Allah, Subhannahu Wa Ta’ala, and all of Creation.

(Be sure to enlarge the slideshare screen for the full effect!)

Enjoy!

Understanding My Faith. My Islam. A reminder to some and to others, knowledge.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

~~

I am a Muslim woman, a Muslimah, Alhamdulillah!

I am not oppressed by others!

I follow the Qur’an, (the Book of Guidance, the Word of Allah [SWT]) revealed through the Angel Jibreel to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and I adhere to the Sunnah (teachings, manners, and ways) of the final Prophet, Muhammad (SAW).

And, this is my attempt to share Islam with others, Insha’Allah.

This is a basic overview of my faith, my beliefs, and my obligations to Our Creator!

I urge my Muslim brothers and sisters to read this as a reminder of our beliefs and of our obligations to Allah and to each other, InshaAllah. I also urge my non-Muslim friends and family to read this to gain a true understanding of Islam. I fear that many of you have been duped by the media and by anti Islam groups (yes, there are many financially supported groups here in the USA) that are portraying Islam as something that it is not.

It is my hope, InshaAllah, that you will come away from reading this with a different perspective, or at least, a better understanding of Islam.

~~

Verily, all praise is due to Allah. It is due to Him, and to Him alone. We praise Him and we seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our own selves and from the evil of our actions. And whomsoever Allah guides, there is none to misguide him, and whomsoever Allah leads astray none can guide him aright. I testify that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah, alone with no partner, and I testify that Muhammad (SAWS) is His slave and messenger.

“Ash hadu an la ilaha illa Allah was ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah”

“I bear witness that there is no deity except God (Allah) and I bear witness that Muhammad is the final Messenger of God.”

I profess my faith in Islam and I strive to live by it each and every day, Insha’Allah, as opposed to those who claim to live by Islam and do not, or those who are Muslim in word, but do not adhere to the commandments of Allah (SWT), or those  who claim to be Muslim who are killing or oppressing others in the name of Islam!

Astaghfirullah (I ask Allah for forgiveness)

~~

I understand that Allah (SWT) is the Creator and Sustainer of all things, which exist. And He is the Provider of all our sustenance.

~~

I understand that there is a realm that unseen, a realm that is beyond my limited human perception. Yes, as humans, we are blessed with intelligence, however or intelligence is not infinite. It is finite, it is limited.

~~

I understand that Islam is complete submission and obedience to Allah (SWT).

~~

I understand that there is absolutely no compulsion in Islam, and although I would love for all of my family, friends, and all of humanity to believe, part of my responsibility as a Muslim is just to share the Truth!

Everyone has freedom of choice! Allah (SWT) has provided us with freedom to do as we choose, however, we have a duty to worship Allah (SWT). That is our main purpose.

We can choose to submit to Allah (SWT) and be obedient to His Commands, or to be disobedient to Allah (SWT).

“And verily, this is my Straight Path, so follow it……” (6:153)

Allah (SWT) has blessed us with the best of all of mankind, The Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him), as our role model. The Prophet (SAW) and his companions were of the best of men, there will never be a group as great as they were.

We have the Qur’an and the teachings and manners of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) as our guide.

~~

Islam is not a new religion. In fact, Islam is the original message sent by all of the Messengers of Allah.

Say (Oh Muslims), “We believe in Allah and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma’il (Ishmael), Ishaque (Isaac), Ya’qub (Jacob), and to Al-Asbat (the twelve sons of Ya’qub, and that which has been given to Musa (Moses) and “Isa (Jesus), and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islam).” (2:136)

~~ 

The basic beliefs of Islam are:

  1. Tawhid. Belief in Allah (SWT) alone.

Belief in the Oneness of Allah (SWT). No partners are associated with Him.

  “Say, He is Allah, the One. Allah is Eternal and Absolute. The Self-Sufficient Master (Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks). He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Qur’an, 112)

       2.  The Angels of Allah.

Angels are a creation of Allah (SWT), which have no free will. They perform special duties and always obey Allah (SWT). They are always in praise and glorification of Allah. Angels also aid us in our use of our free will. All of us are attended by two angels who record our deeds, both good and bad, right up until our death.

      “But verily, over you are appointed protectors (angels), kind and honorable, writing down your deeds. They know all that you do.” (82: 10-12) 

“ He sends down His angels with the Ruh (Revelation) of His command to such of His servants as He pleases, (saying) “Warn (man) that none has the right to be worshipped but I, so do your duty to Me.” (16:2).

One of the most honored angels, Jibreel (Gabriel), revealed the Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

      3.     The Books of Allah. The revealed scriptures.

 I believe in all of the original scriptures:

  • The Tawrah of Musa (AS) (Moses),
  • The Zabur of Dawud (AS) (The Psalms of David)
  • The Injil (Gospel of Isa (AS) (Jesus)
  • The Qur’an, revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

The Qur’an is the only divine book that remains unchanged, and will remain unchanged, in its original form. The message of the Qur’an is for all of mankind, and for all times. The Qur’an remains the only scripture that was compiled during the lifetime of a prophet who had received it directly from the divine source.  The Qur’an, a Miracle from Allah (SWT), the Word of Allah, is the final book of Guidance. 

“This is the Scripture in which there is no doubt. In it is guidance for the God-conscious, who believe in the Unseen, and are steadfast in prayer, and spend in charity out of what We have provided for them; and those who believe in what was revealed to thee (Muhammad) and in what was revealed before thee, and are certain of the Hereafter. These are on the true way of guidance from their Lord, and these are they who will be successful.” (2:2-5)

 

4.     The Messengers of Allah.

The Qur’an states that Allah (SWT) sent a warner and a guide to every people. The first Prophet was Adam (AS). Other messengers include Nuh (Noah), Ibrahim, Ishmael, Isaac, Yaqoob, Yusuf, Musa, Dawud, and Isa (May Allah be pleased with them all).

There are 25 Prophets named in the Qur’an.

“Say (O Muslims): ‘We believe in God and in what is revealed to us, and in what was revealed to Abraham, and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Tribes (of Israel), and in what was given to Moses and Jesus, and in what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them (in believing them all to be God’s messengers), and to Him do we submit ourselves.” (2:136, 3:84-85).

Muhammad (SAW) is the final Messenger of Allah (SWT). He left behind the Qur’an and his Sunnah (teachings and ways) for all of mankind.

   5.     The Day of Judgment (The day of Recompense).

On this day, all of mankind will be accountable for their deeds. This day will come.

“Then how can you disbelieve in Allah? seeing that you were without life and He gave you life. Then He will cause you to die and will bring you to life again (on the day of Resurrection), and then unto Him you will return.” (2:28) 

“O mankind! If you are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then, verily, We created you from dust, then from a drop, then form a clot, then from a lump of flesh, both shaped and shapeless, that We may make it clear for you. And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time, and afterwards, We bring you forth as infants; then you attain your full strength. And among you there is he who dies (young) and among you there is he who is brought back to the most abject time of life so that, after knowledge, he knows nothing. And thou seest the earth barren, but when We send down water on it, it thrills and swells and puts for the every lovely kind of growth. That is because God is the Reality, and it is HE Who gives lift to the dead, and it is He Who has power over al things, and because the Hour of Judgment will come concerning which there is no doubt, and because God will raise those who are in the graves.” (22:5-7)  

  6.     Divine Decree.

Everything is governed by Allah’s (SWT) will. Nothing takes place, not even a fallen leaf, without His permission.

“The Prophet believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, and so do the Believers. They all believe in God, His angels, His scriptures, and His messengers, making no distinction among His Prophets. And they say, “We hear and we obey. Grant us Thy forgiveness, or Lord, and unto You is the return (of all).” (2:285)

 7.     Life after Death, The Hereafter. 

The abode of Jannah (Paradise)

“Those who believe and do righteous deeds, they are the best of creatures. Their reward is with their Lord: Gardens of Paradise beneath which rivers flow. They will dwell there in forever, God well pleased with them and they with Him. This is for those who hold their Lord in awe.” (98:7-8)

Or of Jahannam (The Hellfire)

“And on the Day those who disbelieve will be placed before the Fire, (they will be asked), Is not this real? They will say, Yes, by Our Lord. “ He will say, “Then taste the punishment because you disbelieved.” (46:34).

 ~~

My duties as a Muslimah:

  1. Shahada.  My declaration of Faith:

“Ash hadu an la ilaha illa Allah was ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah”

“I bear witness that there is no deity except God (Allah) and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of God.”

2. Salah.

I perform my 5 obligatory daily prayers at dawn, after midday, late afternoon, after sunset, and in the later evening. There are other prayers that I perform as well to increase my worship of Allah. As a Muslimah, I use my Salah as my personal conversation with Allah (SWT). This is my time to praise Him, to thank Him, to seek His assistance, and to ask His forgiveness.

“Indeed, I am Allah; there is no god except Myself; so worship Me and establish Salah to remember Me.” (20:14)

3. Zakah

Giving to those in need, or money spent in the cause of Allah. An annual due, a purification of the heart, which prevents greed and selfishness.

When I am blessed with enough money to offer the annual Zakat, I do so. I also provide charity throughout the year in the cause of Allah. Alhamdulillah.

“You will not attain righteousness until you spend out of that which you love. And whatever you spend from (your) possessions, indeed Allah is aware of it.” (3:92)

4. Sawm (Fasting):

A total abstinence not only from food and drink, but from marital relations, from backbiting, from worldly pleasures that are not good for us, and from sin!

Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan (the ninth month of the Islamic calendar) as an exercise in self-discipline and in worship and obedience to Allah’s (SWT) commands. We fast for the entire month of Ramadan, InshaAllah. We begin our day with our intention to fast and with a small meal which we eat before dawn arrives. We break our fast at sunset with water and a few dates, InshaAllah.

I always seem to become hungry about 2 hours before I break my fast and I feel like I can eat anything and everything put in front of me, but, Alhamdulillah, when sunset arrives,I break my fast with water and dates and I feel full!

It is amazing, SubhanAllah!

The first day or two of fasting may be somewhat difficult as our bodies adjust, but after that it is much easier to fast (although over these next few years, Ramadan will fall during months of long days and of hot weather). There are Muslims all over the world, in areas that are hot always, who fast during the month of Ramadan. Alhamdulillah, it is a great time for all Muslims.

The Qur’an was first revealed during the month of Ramadan. There is a special evening during the month of Ramadan which “is better than a thousand months” (97:3). It is called Lailatul Qadr (Night of Power). This night is presumed to occur as one of the last 10 nights of Ramadan and it is believed that the Qur’an was first revealed to Prophet Muhammad during this night. Muslims worship Allah (SWT) as much as they can during this night, it is a night of great blessing, InshaAllah.

Ramadan is a wonderful, greatly anticipated month for Muslims all over the world. We strive to worship our Lord even more during this month. We fast, we share, we seek more knowledge, we do self-reflection, and we increase our devotion to Allah (SWT) in many ways during this month.

O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you in order that you may become the pious. Observe fasting for a fixed number of days, but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number (should be made up) from other days. And as for those who can fast with difficulty, they have a choice to either fast or to feed a poor person for every day. But whoever does good of his own accord, it is better for him. And that you fast is better for you if only you know.

The month of Ramadan, in which the Qur’an was revealed as a guide to mankind and as a clear evidence for guidance and judgment. So whoever among you sights (the crescent on the first night of the month of Ramadan, he must observe Saum that month, and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number of days must be made up from other days. Allah intends ease for you and He does not intend hardship, and (He desires) that you should complete the prescribed period, and that you may glorify Allah for guiding you and that you may be grateful to Him.” (2:183 -185).

5. Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia to visit the House of Allah, the Ka’bah) is obligatory once in a lifetime for Muslims who can afford to go while leaving provisions for their family behind. Hajj is performed annually during the 12th month of the Islamic calendar (Dhul Hijjah). The Ka’bah was originally built by Prophet Ibrahim (AS). It is the first house built for the purpose of Worship of Allah (SWT).

“And remember Abraham and Ishmael raised the foundation of the House, saying “Our Lord, accept this from us, for Thou are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. Our Lord, make us those who submit to Thee and of our descendants a people who submit to Thee. And show us our rites, and forgive us. Indeed, Thou are the Forgiving, the Mercy-Giving.’ (2:127-128)

Hajj is an amazing life changing experience for those who perform it. No words can describe it other than:

SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar.

“And (remember) when We made the House a place of resort for mankind and a place of safety. And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (or the stone on which Ibrahim (AS) stood while he (in worship) to Him.” (2:116)

As pilgrims head towards the Ka’bah, they recite:

“Here I am O Lord, Here I am, Here I am, You have no partner, here I am, surely praise, blessings and the kingdom are for You. You have no partner.”

There are many rites performed during one’s Hajj and many blessings given to one whose Hajj is accepted by Allah (SWT).

There is a “lesser Hajj” called Umrah that can be performed at any time of the year.

Alhamdulillah, I was able to perform Umrah in 2011 while I was working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and I was able to bring my husband to Saudi Arabia for Umrah during this time as well. InshaAllah, we will be able to perform Hajj someday and experience the Greatness of Allah (SWT) with thousands of other Muslims

SubhanAllah.

                                                    

~~

I am still learning about my faith, each and every day, InshaAllah. I have learned so much already, and I admit that I still know so little. I know that I will continue to seek knowledge so that I can benefit from my worship, InshaAllah.

Islam is a religion of peace, of unity, of brotherhood and sisterhood, of justice, of fairness, of equality, of abundant blessings and of just punishment.

It is not what is being portrayed by the media, or by extremists who promote violence.

For those of you who are curious to learn of this truth, do not learn from the news, from the internet, or from ignorance. Learn from those of us who are truly practicing our faith each and every day, InshaAllah. Ask us or seek knowledge from a local masjid!

 Brothers and Sisters in Islam, “Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu”

Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon You!

Follow the Qur’an and Sunnah, InshaAllah.

Live by the prescribed teachings and be an example to others, InshaAllah.

Alhamdulillah              SubhanAllah            Allahu Akbar
