Chapter 1: The Muslim Woman and Her Rabb (cont.)

1.   She feels a sense of responsibility for the members of her family p. 35

The responsibility of the Muslim woman for the members of her family is no less, in the sight of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala), than that of the man. Her responsibility is in fact even greater than a man's, because of what she knows of the secret life of her children who live with her most of the time: they may tell her things that they do not tell their father.

2.        Her main concern is the pleasure of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)  

The true Muslim woman always seeks to earn the pleasure of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) in everything she does. So she measures everything against this precise standard.

3.   She understands the true meaning of being a servant of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)

The true Muslim woman has the firm belief that she has been created to serve an important purpose in life, which Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has defined in the Qur'an:

(I have only created jinns and men, that they may serve Me.) (Qur'an 51:56)

4.   She works to support the religion of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)

The first Muslim women were no less enthusiastic than the men when it came to sacrifice and courage for the sake of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). Some of the women of the early generations of this ummah excelled many of the men in this regard.
