If we were to study the Quran properly and read the stories in the Quran properly, we would find demonstrates so much love for women, for his female servants. When you look at the story of Musa alayhis salaam, and you look at the story of the mother of Musa and what she went through, so Subhana Allah is like the ultimate type of Islamophobia, right? When we talk about Islamophobia, we're talking about, okay, we were worried that maybe certain things are being asked about children at school, maybe our children are getting a bit nervous to talk about certain topics, things like that, in her times, the ruler of the time, for round was actually looking for all of the male Muslim
children. And he wanted to kill them, all of the male Muslim children that were born in a particular year, he wanted to kill them. So Pamela is like the worst type of Islamophobia, if you want to call it that, that we could ever imagine. And she was going through that, and she had just had a baby, so her son was on the hit list.
And when we look at the way Allah Subhana, Allah talks about her, he says, what else but her
her heart was completely empty. So Pamela, and later on when Allah subhanaw taala describes the way in which he conducted affairs such that eventually, this baby will be returned back to his mother, in such an amazing way, a way that she could never have imagined. You know, she was putting him into the water into a river, which is something that no mother would want to do. And somehow Allah Subhana, Allah made, all the affairs come together such that he was brought back to her lap, in safety. And in fact, she was even being paid a wage in order to breastfeed him. So parliament, in such a situation of safety and a lot of mammoth, Allah describes it that he says that, for dinner,
who allowed me, we returned him to his mother cater camera, I know her so that it may be the coolness of her eyes, while at the horizon, so that she would not be sad.
And so that she would know that the promise of a lie is true, and that most people just do not know. And the way unless Allah talks about that, I just felt that but he shows that he really understands the inner feelings of a mother.
And you know, the the job of being a mother can be very lonely, sometimes, it can be very isolating. Even if you're if you have a very supportive husband. There are times when it's very, very isolating, and you feel very alone. And sometimes you you feel things that you feel nobody can really understand and hear Allah subhanaw taala is telling us, the women who come after Omar Musa that he understands us, he understands those things that we're feeling. Allah subhanaw taala loved his female servants so much that he revealed in the Quran, I add that would exonerate our mother, our Isha for the olana. A girl, she's just a teenage girl, right, who was accused of something. And
he, the creator above the seven heavens, deemed her so important. And the honor of a Muslim, it's so important that he revealed verses that would be recited until the end of time about him.
more evidence that a lot of hamaca, Allah cares deeply for his female servants. He loved us so much, my sisters that he enshrined in the Sharia, that men must take care of us, that men must be bothered, they can't just relax and completely, you know, allow us to do our own thing. Because they have to be bothered, they have to care they have to get involved. He loved us so much that He freed us from the responsibility from the shadow a responsibility to provide financially for our families. That responsibility and that burden that obligation has been lifted from our shoulders. And in that is a recognition from Allah subhanaw taala. That the roles that we fulfill are so difficult, are so
important, and are so valued by Allah Subhana Allah that He wanted to lift that burden
off our shoulders. So Pamela and we, in the West, you know, we we try and compete and say to, you know, non Muslim people, when they ask us we try to show them how, how much we are allowed to work and we are allowed to earn money. But in fact, being given the right to work is not, you know, something luxury is not a luxury, it's not something wonderful. being given the right not to work is actually the luxury. Right? Isn't that what everyone really wants? Right? All these you know, four hour workweek type people you know, people trying to make money, living abroad and automating their income etc. The ideal is that you don't have to work all the time, and yet you're still provided for
and that is what the Sharia sought to provide for us. Allah Subhana Allah warned the men what is lm Oda to suit a lot be a dumping kottelat that the female baby who was being killed the people who are killing their own daughters at that time, but one day they would be asked about that. So Pamela, any of us who really read the Quran, and look for the love of Allah Subhana Allah for his female servants. We'll find it clinically in
