Who Is A Pious Muslimah??? by abat4real37(f): 7:13am On May 01, 2020

Firstly, I will start by defining the key word there which is "PIOUS"...This word simply means exhibiting piety, i.e God's fearing, Righteous, and Muslimah is a Muslim Sister as we all know. In a nutshell, a pious Muslimah simply means "A God fearing Muslim Sister, or a Righteous Muslim Sister.
Now, to our topic, "WHO IS A PIOUS MUSLIMAH"...that is who is a God fearing Muslim Sister A righteous Muslimah. Before one can attain piety i.e being a pious Muslimah...one must possess some qualities or have some attributes 1.Taqwa
2. Iman
3. Solat
4. Zakat
5. Sawm(Fasting)
6. Amalu sooliha(righteous deeds)
7. U must b chaste and modest
...very very important
8. Must have good character
Dress modestly and decently. And so many other reasons.
Firstly, believing in the 5pillars of Islam which I will start from Iman
Iman/taqwa...simply means believing in Allah (Swt) him and him alone. The first way of attaining piety or being a pious Muslimah is to believe in the 5pillars of Islam, starting from Iman and it's articles...which means having strong faith in Allah, his prophet, angel, books, d day of judgement, Destiny (the good and bad)
.Allah (SWT) says in Q2:285...
[4/29, 9:41 PM] +234 903 938 4071: ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَٰٓئِكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَاۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ
The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no distinction between any of His messengers." And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination..This verse is telling us that all the messangers of Allah believed in what was revealed to them, and so have the believers too, we should believe in all what Allah has sent to us: As a pious Muslimah, you must have faith in Allah, have taqwa in him, believe dat everything comes from him alone, and no one except him. You must not associate any partner with Allah SWT, no matter what the condition is, stay firm with him, Do not worship any Creator either secretly or openly
If truly you want to meet Ur Lord on the day of judgement as a righteous being,then you MUST NOT associate anything with him: Allah says in the holy Qur'an, Q18:110: he says:
قُلۡ إِنَّمَآ أَنَا۠ بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُكُمۡ يُوحَىٰٓ إِلَىَّ أَنَّمَآ إِلَٰهُكُمۡ إِلَٰهٌ وَٰحِدٌۖ فَمَن كَانَ يَرۡجُواْ لِقَآءَ رَبِّهِۦ فَلۡيَعۡمَلۡ عَمَلًا صَٰلِحًا وَلَا يُشۡرِكۡ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِۦٓ أَحَدًۢا
Say, "I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord - let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone."...
The above verse is telling us that if you want to meet Allah on the day of judgement, then you have to be righteous, and don't associate any thing with him. May Allah make it easy for us and make us firm on his path till d day of judgement....Aameen

Moving on to the next quality of a pious Muslimah. A pious Muslimah is the type that observes her 5 times daily prayer regularly and at the accurate time, not the type that postpones or neglect solat, Allah says in tje holy Quran: 4:103 : إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ كَانَتۡ عَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ کِتَابَاً مَوْقُتَاً،
meaning: indeed, prayer has been decreed on the believers, a decree of specified time. This verse is laying emphasy on how important our solah is, it's not just praying, but praying at the right time and with all mind of submission to Allah. Most of us find it difficult to pray at the right time, we merge everything together, which is very bad
The 5 times daily prayer is very compulsory for every Muslim, that is what makes u a Muslim: Laa faariq bayna-l- Muslim Wal kaafir illa bi solaat,
meaning: there is no different between a Muslim & a disbeliever except with solat, that means, if u don't pray, you are a disbeliever: Let me quickly tell us part of the importance of solat.There are different things that solat will do for you, solat takes away all your bad attitudes, it makes you more closer to your Creator, and makes you attain piety, especially the kiyaamu layli ...tahajjud...this is the time that Allah answer prayers most, because Allah is pleased with whoever abandon his/her comfort bed and pray to him during the night, during the time that all doors were closed. Especially during dis holy month of Ramadan, where all our good deeds are multiplied

The prophet (SAW) Says in one of his Hadith, Allah says: maa qaama laylan imaana wa ihtisahbah, gufira llahu máa taaqodamo min dhanbih. meaning; whoever wakes up in d midnight to pray with all heart of faith and total submission to d will of Allah, Allah will forgive him all his sin...

And lastly among d few importance of solat that I will mention. solat is THE key to Jannah..."As- solatu miftaul-jannah"...
Subhanallah. This means ifyou observe your prayer regularly and at d specific time with all heart of submission to Allah, you have already Gained your key to Jannah....May Almighty Allah make it easy for us, and make us pray till our last day on the qiyama. And may he accept all our worship as act of Ibaadah and reward us abundantly. Amin....
A pious Muslimah must also be the type that fast, especially during the month of Ramadan, Fasting is one of the things that makes you attain piety, the prophet SAW says in his Hadith: Allah says: Maa sooma Ramadan, ihmaana wah tisaaban, gufira llahu maa taqadama min dhanbih" meaning anyone day fast with Faith and all heart of submission to Allah, Allah will forgive him/her all his/her sins"

A pious Muslimah must be guarding all wjat belongs to her and her husband (the meaning of dis is her private part) she must b modest, chaste, dignified, she must not have sex with any other man when her husband is not around, as Allah (SWT) has command us in the holy Qur'an, Surat Nisai, Q4:34, Allah says: فَٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتُ قَٰنِتَٰتٌ حَٰفِظَٰتٌ لِّلۡغَيۡبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُۚ
Meaning: "So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard".
A pious Muslimah must not be the wayward type, she must not be the type that jumps from one man to another, this is very common nowadays, you will see one sister dating 3-4 brothers at the same time...scarcely can we find 20% virgins, ladies loose their virginity at a tender age before getting married for one reason or the other, a pride dat should be protected and guarded, has now become a worthless thing, virginity of a lady is whatt makes her a complete Lady, without it, your value is incomplete .....

A pious Muslimah must be the obedient type both to her husband, parent, and all those that have authority over her, be it your boss, your ustadhs, your lecturers/ teachers in school, your elderly ones...Allah says in the holy Qur'an: Q4:59, يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡۖ
"O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you" Another great quality of a pious Muslimah or way of attaining piety is by doing righteous deeds, b good to ur families, neighbours, closed one
Allah says in d Qur'an Q 2:82 وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ
وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ أُوْلَٰٓئِكَ أَصۡحَٰبُ ٱلۡجَنَّةِۖ هُمۡ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ
Meaning: Al-Baqarah 2:83
But they who believe and do righteous deeds - those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.
Part of the quality of a pious Muslimah is that you must have a good relationship with the people around you , you must always utter a good and peaceful statement, "qaolan sadeedan, wa qaolan ma'aruufa"
you must not be rude, & you must not be the type dat utter foul language. many single sisters complain that they don't have a good husband or a good fiance, did you yourself check your behaviour? , Did you possess a good character dat can entiles brothers, Remember "ur attitude determines ur attitude
"Conclusively, be of d best conduct, possess all the qualities of a pious Muslimah as described by Allah SWT in the holy Qur'an, suratul Ahzab, Q33:35, Where you will find d full list of those qualities loved by Allah, Allah Says: إِنَّ ٱلۡمُسۡلِمِينَ وَٱلۡمُسۡلِمَٰتِ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَٰتِ وَٱلۡقَٰنِتِينَ وَٱلۡقَٰنِتَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ وَٱلصَّٰدِقَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ وَٱلصَّٰبِرَٰتِ وَٱلۡخَٰشِعِينَ وَٱلۡخَٰشِعَٰتِ وَٱلۡمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَٱلۡمُتَصَدِّقَٰتِ وَٱلصَّٰٓئِمِينَ وَٱلصَّٰٓئِمَٰتِ وَٱلۡحَٰفِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمۡ وَٱلۡحَٰفِظَٰتِ وَٱلذَّٰكِرِينَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَٱلذَّٰكِرَٰتِ أَعَدَّ ٱللَّهُ لَهُم مَّغۡفِرَةً وَأَجۡرًا عَظِيمًا
"Indeed, the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so - for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward".
All these are the qualities a pious Muslim/ Muslimah must have. So, my dear sisters in Islam, possess the following qualities: 1) Muslim woman,
2) Devout woman,
3) believing woman
4) true woman
5) woman who is patient and constant
6) woman who humbles herself
7) woman who gives charity
cool woman who fasts and denies herself
9) woman who guards her chastity
10) woman who engages much in Allah's praise...
Let ur attitude speaks for you,
let ur dressing defines you and your Deen,
Let ur utterances describe Islam,
Let people see you as a pious Muslimah and a true ambassador of Islam. I'm sure, if any sister possess all these qualities, she will b d choice of every brothers
Let's emulate the characters of d pious Muslim women in Islam..d likes of Aishah, rodiyallahu anha,
Asia, the wife of firaoun,
Maryam, the mother of Jesus, khadeejah, d prophet of Muhammad SAW, Zaynab the daughter of Muhammad SAW and Faatimah, the only survivor of Rosulullahi SAW...
We pray Almighty Allah ease our affairs, make us the best woman for our spouses, grant the singles sisters here the best brother that will be the coolness of their eyes
And reward all our jihad with the best jannah, Make us a Muslim till the last day of resurrection

Aqulu qaoli adhaa, astagfirullah wa lakum
Subhanaka Allahumma wa bihamdik, ashadu an laa ilaha illa anta, astagfiruka wa atuubu ilayhi...subhaana robbika,. Robbil 'izzati amma yasifuun wa salamun ala l mursaleen wal hamdulillahi Robbil'Aalameen...
