Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmat Allahi wa barakaatu!

InshaAllah you are all reading this in the best of health and the best of iman. I am doaa, the maintainer of this community, also known as sundus

this is a community where any and every Muslim womam can come and turn to her fellow sisters for help, for knowledge, for insight and for support inshaAllah.

this is a closed community, and all those who joined will be screened. to protect the privacy of the sisters and to allow for as much openness and honesty as possible, this community is open to MUSLIM SISTERS ONLY.

this is not to discriminate against anyone or to prevent anyone from seeking knowledge about islam. there are numerous communities created for the purpose of disseminating knowledge on islam. they include islam, khilafah, and muslims. i encourage anyone interested in learning about the religion to visit any one of these. the making of the community open to muslim sisters only is to facilitate transparency in our discussions and to enable the community to be as pure and as open as possible for those who choose to be members. All issues of a personal nature discussed in this community should, inshaAllah, STAY within this community. this is a place of outreach and of confidence, and inshaAllah will remain that way.

i encourage all sisters in islam to join and i will try my best to keep this community a place for open discussion, a place where we can learn from each other, where we can trust each other for sound advice and come to each other for guidance and knowledge, inshaAllah.

i credit safa20 for the wonderful idea of the creation of a community like this. jazaaki Allah khaira, ukhti.

Hadith - Al-Tirmidhi #3254, Narrated Anas ibn Malik

"Paradise lies at the feet of your mothers."

*

Hadith - Bukhari 1:3:591, Narrated Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba
The Prophet said, "Allah has forbidden for you, (1) to be undutiful to your parents, (2) to bury your daughters alive, (3) to not to pay the rights of the others (e.g. charity, etc.) and (4) to beg of men (begging). And Allah has hated for you (1) vain, useless talk, or that you talk too much about others, (2) to ask too many questions, (in disputed religious matters) and (3) to waste the wealth (by extravagance).

*

"Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers."
-From the last sermon of Prophet Mohammed

*

"None but a noble man treats women in an honorable manner. And none but an ignoble treats women disgracefully".
Prophet Mohammed (At-Tirmithy)

*

According to Abdullah ibn Mas'ud, the Prophet is reported to have said:
If a daughter is born to a person and he brings her up, gives her a good education and trains her in the arts of life, I shall myself stand between him and hell-fire.
(Kanz al-Ummal).
quoted in Women in Islam by M. Mazheruddin Siddiqi


*

How praiseworthy are the women of Ansar that their modesty does not prevent them from attempts at learning and the acquisition of knowledge.
(Sahih Muslim, Kitab al Tahrat)

*

A person who has a female slave in charge and takes steps to give her a sound education and trains her in arts and culture, and then frees her and marries her, he will be doubly rewarded.
(Sahih Bukhari, Kitab al-Nikah)

*

Some Muslim callers preach a false and ugly version of Islam and then complain because people do not accept it. I think that those ignorant preachers should be imprisoned or lashed because they divert people from the way of Allah and the truth that Muhammad, the final Messenger, declared.
-Sheikh Muhammad Al-Ghazaly.

*

Muslims who advance conservative views on female affairs...are normally very literal in their understanding of texts; but they tendentiously opt for an understanding that suits their prejudice.
-Dr Hassan Al-Turabi
