She understands the true meaning of being a servant of Allah (SWT)

Post by Ithar Ghada Faied on Tue Apr 27, 2010 6:21 pm

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

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

Life, for the true Muslim woman, is not to be spent solely on daily chores or enjoyment of the good things of this world; life is an important mission, in which every believer must take on the responsibility of living in such a way that he or she will be a true and sincere worshiper of Allah (SWT). This can only be achieved by checking one's intention, in all one's deeds, to ensure that they are done for the sake of Allah (SWT) and to please Him. According to Islam, all deeds are tied to the intentions behind them, as the Prophet (PBUH) said:

"Actions are but by intention, and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration was for Allah (SWT) and His Messenger, his migration was for Allah (SWT) and His Messenger; and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that which he intended."99

Hence the Muslim woman may be in a continuous state of worship, which may encompass all of her deeds, so long as she checks her intentions and ensures that she is carrying out her mission in life, as Allah (SWT) wants her to do. So she may be in a state of worship when she treats her parents with kindness and respect, when she is a good wife to her husband, when she takes care of her children upbringing and education, when she goes about her domestic chores, when she upholds the ties of kinship, etc., so long as she does all this in obedience to the commands of Allah (SWT), and with the intention of serving and worshiping Him.
