Annual Path to Piety ConferenceReply
With so many role models, some made role models by society, some self-made, some limited to certain spheres of life, some for a certain era, it is imperative that we have role models in our lives that will stand up to every scrutiny, be relevant to every sphere of life and most importantly stand the test of time. Besides the Prophets (may Allah shower his blessings on them all) there is one single generation of humans whose very existence gave them the status of being honourably mentioned in the Quran, and thereby until the end of time,; ""Allah is pleased with the first to lead the way from the Muhaajireen, the Ansar, and those who followed them with sincerity and they are please with Him. He has prepared for them such a paradise beneath which rivers flow, in which they shall live forever. This is the ultimate success." [Surah Taubah: 100] . Such is their status that millions, if not billions, of people name their beloved children after them in the hope that their children grow up to become like the sahabah they were named after.
The Sahaba (may Allah be pleased with the all) were the greatest generation to ever exist in human history. The comprehensive culmination of their unique, distinct, yet united and coexistent personalities brought forth the greatest single generation that ever existed at one time. Amongst them the Sahabiyat – women companions – were the noble women who were the contemporaries of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Their achievements are found in every sphere of that momentous period in the history and their influence spread across the world all the way to the modern era and will continue to have an impact on the world till the very end. They were to be found in the political arena, the battlefield, in the field of education, in the courts of Islamic jurisprudence, in the interpretation of Shari’ah, in charity and caring, in trade and commerce, in agriculture, in medicine, in nursing and numerous other fields. In short there was no sphere that did not benefit from their spiritual strength, their selflessness, their intellect, their wisdom and courage and their gentle yet firm strength of character.
In Masjid Quba's 3rd annual sisters conference distinguished speakers will speak about how Muslimahs can create, maintain and build a strong unbreakable bond between themselves and the Sahabah/Sahabiyyat (may Allah be pleased with them all) whether she’s at home, work or studying, married or single, a mother, daughter, wife or sister.
