The past is gone and the hoped-for future is still unknown. All you have is the present.

Look at the texts of Islam, the Qur’an and Sunnah. Allah, the Exalted, the Almighty, praises righteous and believing women. He says:

[And Allah has set forth an example for those who believe: the wife of Fir’awn (Pharaoh), when she said: “My Lord! Build for me a home with you in Paradise, and save me from Fir’awn (Pharaoh) and his work, and save me from the people who are Zalimun (Polytheists, wrongdoers and disbelievers in Allah).”] … (Qur’an 66:11)

Think about how Allah made this woman – Asiyah, may Allah be pleased with her – a living example for believing men and women, a clear symbol for everyone who wants to be guided and follow the ways of Allah in life. How wise this woman was, when she sought a home with the Lord and put that above her worldly interests. She freed herself from the control of the Kaafir (Disbeliever) tyrant Pharaoh and refused to live in his palace with his servants and courtiers, and with all its luxuries.

She sought a better home that was more lasting and more beautiful, with the Lord of the Worlds, amidst gardens and rivers, in a seat of truth (i.e. Paradise), near the Omnipotent King (Allah, the One, the All-Blessed, the Most High, the Owner of Majesty and Honour) (Qur’an 54:55).

She was a great woman whose ambition and sincerity led her to speak the word of truth and faith against her tyrant husband. She was tortured for the sake of Allah but she ultimately earned a home with the Lord of the Worlds, and Allah the Exalted, made her an example for every believing man and woman until the Hour comes, and He praised her in His book, recording her name and commending her deeds, and condemning her husband who deviated from the right path on earth,

“Be optimistic, even if you are in the eye of the storm.”
