Learning about women who were praised by God and his final messenger: Mohammad ﷺ. So we can emulate them and better ourselves.
Brief overview about each of these women.
Virtues of Maryam عليها السلام and details about her life:
-The name ‘Maryam’ “Mary” is mentioned 34 times in the Quran- indicates her virtue, and Allah, Most High, also mentions how she was chosen and purified over all women.
-An entire Surah (Quran Chapter) is named after her.
-She was from the progeny of Prophets.
-She was the daughter of a Prophet and became the mother of a Prophet.
Details of the prayer her mother, Hanna when she saw a bird feeding it’s young, and what she asked God, Most High, at that moment and also after she conceived.
Four points we can understand from verses 35-37 in Surah Al-Imran, which are:
1) Purity of Hanna’s intention by making a vow that this child would be for the service of God
2) Dua/supplication for acceptance,
3) Naming her child a beautiful name, and
4) Asking Allah, Most High, to protect her child and her progeny from Satan.
After the birth of Maryam
-Finding someone to take custody of her and to be in charge of her upbringing (tarbiyah).
-How Prophet Zakarriyyah was placed in charge of taking care of her, how he was related to her (i.e., he was the husband of her maternal aunt)
-How she grew excellently inwardly and outwardly.
Explanation of each point mentioned above along with how we can apply this in our lives.
