Zainab (s.a.), indeed Zainab, a name that comprises of only 4 Arabic letters, but a personality that bears all the virtues of humanity and holds all the values that Allah Almighty has mentioned for a man or woman in the 35th verse of the chapter Al-Ahzab.
A fine example of faith, knowledge and cognizance, a role model of patience, truth and steadfastness, an epitome of courage, a lady who inherited oration and eloquence from her father, and all the moral values and etiquettes of her mother accumulated in her existence, a lady who is a source of pride not just for Muslim women, but for the entire Islamic nation, all men and women.
Her lifestyle, her veil, infallibility and chastity, her prayers, greatness, virtue and magnanimity, are all praiseworthy. The loftiness of her status and position, her support for the religion and rejection of the ruling transgression in history will always be remembered. She denounced and defeated the supreme oppressors of her time, such that the Umayyad dynasty was thrown away by the world like a trash in the bin.
Indeed she protected Islam, the pride and honor of Hashemite Dynasty, the personality of her honorable grandfather Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) and the holy Qur’an. Islam, Quran and the religion of monotheism, are all indebted to her. Just the thought of how the history would have unfolded without her, is extremely scary.
In the present world, both men and women, are indispensably in need of learning the messages of life and the reviving teachings from the great school of Lady Zainab (s.a.), from this great woman and her astonishing stand in the defense of Islam and Quran, in the way of denouncing falsehood, oppression, transgression, unlawful domination, with the intention of establishing the truth.
We hope that today, Muslim women, choose her highness, Lady Zainab (s.a.), as a role model for their life, take lessons from this great lady of Islam for performing all their religious duties and obligations, take pride before the world in accepting such a great lady as their role model, and strive to safeguard the name and spiritual message of Lady Zainab (s.a.) eternally.
