The Needs of Solehah Women

Wed, 23 April 2008, 17 Rabiul Akhir 1429H.
Maybe today I got something.

Why we need solehah women ?
Let's see the history.

1. From the beginning of prophethood, when it came to Ibrahim A.S, he married a solehah, good, and bertaqwa woman, Sarah. One day, when they (Ibrahim A.S and Sarah) got into Egypt, the king at that time (Pharaoh), tried to seduce Sarah. But, for she was a solehah woman, and her intimacy with Allah was so close and tight, Allah showed His sign to the king, and the king finally admitted the prophecy or some kind of powerful soul from that woman. Then sincerely, the king gave her (for her sign, and respects) his slave (or it is said to be her daughter, or whatsoever you can read the history), and she (the gift from Pharaoh) was Hajar. Then Sarah gave Hajar to her husband Ibrahim. Hajar was a mother of Ismail A.S.

Then, we can see, that the descendants of our Prophet PBUH, who was sent to save the humanity, were from Ismail A.S.

2. From the beginning of Muhammad PBUH prophecy, he married Khadijah bt Khuwailid at the age of 25, and she was 40. And when the time came, he was 40, and started doing his dakwah and tarbiyyah. Let's see, after Muhammad PBUH got the first revelation at Hira', he returned to his home, and said "Zammiluuni" (put the blanket around me) many times, as he was shivering and trembling. He just needed the loyal woman, to comfort him, to be beside him, there with him. And she (Khadijah) was very generous, she was rich and wealthy, but she put all her properties and wealth for her husband's job and obligation, it is called Sacrifice.

Everyday, at the beginning of dakwah at Mecca, Muhammad PBUH was opposed and tested by every single test, came from Mecca people, including his family members (Abu Lahab) and else. For every night, he just needed someone to be with him, comforting him, recharging him, thus for the next day, he rised as an energized man, fully charged and new one.

It went on and on, and his loyal wife, played a very big role in his success in dakwah.

3. The one of Umayyah Caliphates was Umar Abd Aziz. He was said and known to be the fifth of Pious Caliphs, after Saidina Ali R.A. He was also said to be the hero who saved the Islamic World, at that time, though his period of being a khalifah only about 2-3 years before he died. But he made the big change in the Islamic World, till it is said that a wolf and a goat, won't 'gaduh-gaduh', if they meet each other.

When you see the descendants of Umar Abd Aziz, you can thrase that he was the grand daughter of a woman, that Amirul Mukminin Umar Al-Khattab got his son married her. (maknenye dia ni cicit Umar Al-Khattab). The woman, once was with her mother, at nightm and were preparing the milk to sell for the next day, in their house. At that time, Umar Al-Khattab, was roaming, and watching his citizens, to see them, in his bare eyes. The mother told her, 'We should add in some water (to the milk), so we will get more milk'. The daughter replied, 'What if Umar knows this thing?'. Then the mother said, 'No, he won't know this, he is at his home now'. The daughter replied, 'If Umar doesn't know, the God of Umar will know'. Then the mother was shocked, and just followed his daughter's word. Not knowing that Umar was just beside their house, and silently heard their conversation just now.

The next morning, Umar send a group to propose to the daughter's family, to marry his son, Abd Aziz b Umar Al-Khattab. (if I'm mistaken, please corrent me, not really sure the name).

The woman, got children. One of them was a girl. That girl married with a man. That spouse then got their son, the name is Umar.


The conclusion and some thoughts.
The solehah women, though we cannot see their roles, barely in eyes, for now, for real I mean, besides tarbiyatul aulad or else, were being a core factor, in saving the humanity.

Sarah, was the reason that Ibrahim A.S could marry Hajar, and get Ismail A.S, from him, Muhammad PBUH was born.

Khadijah, was the reason that Muhammad PBUH, could do his job and dakwah, energetically and fully prepared, for she was the one he could lean and rely on, her sacrifices, were too much to tell, from the beginning of dakwah in Mecca.

The woman (who married Umar Al-Khattab's son), was the reason of a birth of a hero, Umar Abd Aziz. (I don't remember the name, maybe next time I will have a look)

There are so many stories, beside these. (You can have a research to find, by pelasure, send it to me)

It all came from a solehah, the relationship with Allah was close and intim, and else, (good things la maknenye).
So, why not being a woman, solehah one, good one, bertaqwa one, to give this humanity a reason to rise and save the Islamic World now?

And then, how to be like it? You already know, it's already answered.

Men don't have this chance, Women do.
Well you know what I mean.


Thoughts, given by Allah.
May Allah bless us all.

Tanta, Egypt.

Mid of Rabiul Akhir

Salam to all.
This post may be boring and mediocre.
Days to exam = about 10-20 days.
Books to cover = 6 killing, blowing heads and slaughtering thick-not-really books.
Condition now = not emotionally stable, physically just fine and nice.
Preparation : 15 %

(is this what we call a Tawakkal ?)

Lately, I've been dreaming of something that keeps playing in my mind.
Tonight is the night of 15 Rabi'ul Awwal 1429H.
Tonight, the full moon is going to show. Quite touching me. Something nice about it.
Just because I like to stare at the full moon.
Every mid of bulan2 Islam, the full moon will come, and when it comes, I just feel some kind of awkward happiness, don't know why. Maybe you know the reason.

I hope you're all in great and happy condition, especially my family members, and family-to-be( if there is one or two). haha.
No thing to type, maybe the ideas just don't come. So it's not my fault. hehe.

Currently, I just read Al-Wafd (newspaper) for today, we got another 5 martyrs in Palestine.
I hope someday I will be one of them, for they are not dead, but they live beside their Lord, given blessings and mercy from Him, eternally.

p/s : Pray for me, for eveything will be fine and just. Thanx.

Do'a sahabat kepada sahabatnya yang lain tanpa diketahui adalah mustajab
- so pray for me without me knowing it -


It's good.

Voice of Angels


Maybe today I got something to jot. Comment me, if you have something to correct me. Thanx after all.

In Al-Quran and Hadiths, there are many verses that show the situation when Angels shout to Allah for blessings towards the chosen people. Eg ; in Surah Ghafir , Asy-Syura and many more, you can find it if you're interested.

But one hadith that attracts my sense when it shows the speciality when the angels show their recognition of some of voices of people.
In one hadith ; it says if someone always do the zikr, (always do tasbih, takbir, or else), then when he is in some hopeless and helpless condition, he will pray to Allah, to show him the way out.
Then the angels will say, 'O Lord, that's a familiar voice, from a familiar servant'
And it shows that the servant gets the recommendation from angels to ease his wish to be granted by Allah.
But if someone doesn't always do those things, then when he is in that condition and pray to Allah, to show him the way out, the angels will say,
'O Lord, that's an unknown voice, from an unknown servant'
So the servant won't even get a recommendation, since he is totally unknown. So it's all up to Allah's mercy to give him His mercy.
So the conclusion is, even angels can be familiar with us, so why not take this chance to be known and recognized by them?
In one hadith :- The difference between the man who always thinks of his Lord (do the zikr things), and the man who doesn't, is just like a living man and a dead man.
Allah is always with us.
It's only up to you to get to His side or get away.
Thoughts in the evening.
