A Strong Woman

A strong woman works out everyday to keep her body in shape,
But a woman with strong iman prostrates in prayer to keep her soul in shape…
A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything,
But a woman with strong iman shows courage in the midst of fear…
A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her,
But a woman with strong iman gives the best of herself to everyone…
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids making the same in the future,
But a woman with strong iman realises life’s ‘mistakes’ can also be Allah’s blessings and capitalises on them…
A strong woman walks sure footedly…
But a woman with strong iman has sabr (patience) when she falls…
A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face,
But a woman with strong iman wears grace…
A strong woman strives to look beautiful and perfect,
But a woman with strong iman knows that she can possess nothing more attractive than the adornment of faith and the beauty of taqwa…
A strong woman has faith knowing she is strong enough for the journey,
But a woman with strong iman has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong…
May Allah guide us and help us to be the women and men of strong iman, Aameen.
