Sisters, you have a role to play in the Ummah too!

Assalamualaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,

This sister is living my dreaaaaammmm!!! 🙂 The fact that she is educated and has memorized the Qur’an is enough to blow anyone away BUT she gives back to the community too masha’Allah! (and also, she’s married!). And who said wearing the niqaab is a barrier to help others? This sister has clearly proven others wrong!

I would love to be able to do exactly the same work as this sister.. but someone told me that I would need to be rich to be able to not work and at the same time support myself 😦 Also, being involved in the community is one of the criteria I would like in my future spouse. Allah knows best.

Sisters, who says that we cannot contribute to the Ummah? Apart from raising righteous children, we also have a part to play in the community. Yes, our priority is our family and children, but if we were to truly emulate Prophet’s wives and the sahabiyaat, they too, were involved in helping people. We can help our Ummah in many ways – not only limited to physical help as shown in the video – but we can volunteer our time teaching others the Qur’an, raise funds for a new Masjid or even write articles about Islam online. And we can even do these within the confines of our own homes! What is stopping us for reaching out to others?

p/s/ by the way, al-Imdaad foundation is a fantastic organization to support if you would like to volunteer/donate. I had a wonderful opportunity to work alongside them last year and to learn about their charity work worldwide (not limited to just Africa) is just amazing masha’Allah!

    • I think it’s not only pessimism, but we ourselves have that mindset that women are not able to contribute because perhaps we are the weaker sex; our role is only at home etc. And it’s unfortunate especially when sisters actually agree with those ideas..
