As I was taking a sister through my upcoming companion workbook to The Four Traits of a Cherished Muslimah, she told me that she had a book on marriage that was on her bedside table, called Fascinating Womanhood. This is one of the first books I read as well. It promotes traditional, submissive, feminine roles.
She said that she had read it so much and it was all tattered at the edges and worn out. She was always looking in the book ‘for the answer’ to her marriage problems.
She concluded that it was time to put away Fascinating Womanhood and replace it with the biography of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ by Martin Lings.
A book on the Messenger of Allah ﷺ on her bedside table. Anything more beautiful than that?
May Allah allow us to connect to our master, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ first before anything else, before any other wisdom.
I’m so glad that I was given this opportunity to help her to make that shift in her priorities. Shukran, Ya Rabbi. Thank you, my Lord.
