The Path to Salvation for Women

Hazrat Moulana Saeed Ahmed Khan Sahib
(Rahmatullahi Allaihi)

(A Special Bayaan)
1.    A pious lady  is better than 70 pious men and an evil lady  is worst than a 1000 evil men (Kanzul Ummal)
2.    2 Rakaats Salaah of a pregnant lady is better than 80 Rakaats Salaah of a lady who is not pregnant.
3.    A woman who breast feeds her own children, Allah Ta'aala grants her one reward for every suckling of the child. (Kanzul Ummal)
4.    A husband who comes home distressed and the wife welcomes him and consoles him, Allah Ta'alaa grants that lady the reward of half a jihad. (Kanzul Ummal))
5.    That women who could not sleep the entire night due to the crying of her child, Allah Ta’ala grants her the reward of freeing 70 slaves. (Kanzul Ummal)
6.    A husband who looks at his wife with the eyes of mercy and a wife who looks at her husband with mercy, Allah Ta’aala looks at both of them with the gaze of mercy. (Kanzul Ummal)
7.    That lady who sends her husband in the path of Allah Ta’ala and  she remains at home retaining all the etiquettes will enter Jannat 500 years before the men, and she will be the queen of 70 000 Angles and Hoors of Jannat. She will be bathed in Jannat and mounted on a horse laden with jewels, and she will await her family there.
8.    That lady who could not sleep due to the illness of her children and who makes an effort to comfort her children, Allah Ta’aala forgives her sins and blesses her with the reward of 12 years accepted Ibadat.
9.    That lady who milks the cow or buffalo reciting bismillah, that animal makes dua for her.
10.    That lady who recites bismillah whilst preparing dough, Allah Ta’aala puts barakah in that sustenance.
11.    That lady who looks at strange men, Allah Ta'aalas curse descends upon her. Just as looking at strange women is haram for a man, in a similar manner to look at strange men is also haraam.
12.    That lady who sweeps her house whilst making Zikr, Allah Ta’aala grants her the reward like that of sweeping the Holy Kaba.
13.    If you don’t have shame, that do as you like (Bukhari Shreef)
14.    That lady who is punctual with salaah and fasting, who she remains chaste and obeys her husband, she has a choice of entering Jannat from whichever of it doors she likes. (Musnad Ahmed)
15.    There are two persons who’s salaah does not rise above their heads: one is that person who has run away from his master and the other is the lady who is disobedient to her husband. (Kanzul Ummal)
16.    That lady who is pregnant, her nights are counted as Ibadat and days as fasting.
17.    When a lady delivers a child, then 70 000 years reward of salaah and fasting is written for her, and the difficulty she endures whilst giving birth, for the throbbing of every vein one years hajj is written for her.
18.    If a lady dies within 40 days after giving birth she gets the reward of a martyr (Kanzul Ummal)
19.    When a child cries at night, if the mother without cursing breastfeeds the child, she gets the reward of one years salaah and fasting.
20.    When the breastfeeding period of a child comes to an end, an angel comes from the sky and gives the lady glad tidings, that: Oh lady! Allah Ta’aala has made Jannat obligatory upon you.
21.    When the husband comes back from journey and the wife gives him food to eat, and in the interim she did not betray him as well, that lady gets the reward of 12 years Nafl Ibadat.
22.    When a lady massages her husband without him asking, she receives the reward of 7 tolas gold given in charity (1 tola = 11.664 grams). If she massages him after he requests her, she gets the reward of 7 tolas silver given in charity.
23.    That husband who is pleased with his wife and she passes away, Jannat becomes obligatory upon her. (Tirmidhi)
24.    One pious  lady is better than 70 men (Kanzul Ummal)
25.    To teach one mas’ala to ones wife is equivalent in reward to 80 years reward.
26.    People in Jannat will go to see the presence of Allah, but that lady who spent her time with modesty and in hijaab, Allah Ta’aala will come to her to show his presence.
27.    Women should veil themselves from strange men; those ladies who wear thin clothing, who entice men, and who are desirous of men other than their spouses, i.e. women who beautify themselves for strange men, will not only be prohibited from entering Jannat, but will not even get to smell the fragrance of Jannat. (Sahih Muslim)

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

It is essential and recommended that women participate in the effort of tabligh by going out in Mastoorah Jamaat. There is no question regarding its permissibility, and the Quraan and Ahaadith bear testimony to this fact.

This is not the forum to discuss each supportive proof, but just a few of these proofs are referenced below for your consideration.

•    `Surah Bara`ah’, verse 71: In this ayah, mention is made of enjoining good and forbidding evil, immediately after the mention of `Muminaat’ (believing women). This indicates that the work of dawah and tabligh is the lot of women as well.

•    `Sahih Bukhari’; Vol 1; pg. 403: This hadith proves that the Sahabiyaat [female companions of Nabi (SAW)] used to accompany the men into battle on certain occasions. If women were permitted to travel despite possible capture or death, we can easily extrapolate the permissibility for women to travel in Mastoorah Jamaat, where their Hidayah and reformation is envisaged.

•    It is common knowledge that a woman, Fatimah bint-e-Khattab(RA), the sister of Hazrat Umar (RA) was the means and catalyst of her brother, Umar (RA) coming into the fold of Islam. This proves that many a times given the appropriate platform, women can become a great medium in the spread of hidayah/guidance. Mastoorah Jamaat provides women with an appropriate platform, without transgressing any of the limits of Shariah.

It should be borne in mind that the laws of Shariah as well as the advices of the ulema and elders/seniors, should be respected and adhered to when going out in Mastoorah Jamaat, viz. a lady should adopt strict hijaab, she should be accompanied by a mahram, etc. If these are strictly adhered to, the benefit that will accrue to both the male and the female are too many to be enumerated upon at this juncture.

May Allah Ta`ala accept the efforts and sacrifices of all those involved in contributing, assisting and promoting this high and noble effort. Aameen

Allah Ta’ala knows best.
