    by: Seyed Tahzeeb-ul-Hassan

    Introduzione

    Nel corso dei secoli, invece di essere una compagna di vita, la donna è stata considerata una merce di nessun valore, una proprietà dell’uomo. Considerata una merce, è sempre stata trattata di conseguenza, scambiata liberamente, come al mercato. In numerose parti del mondo, fu sepolta viva dal padre, immediatamente dopo la nascita. Considerata come la fonte di tutti i peccati, è stata bruciata viva, assieme alla pira funeraria del marito.

    As they were busy with their conversations, the young man would ask permission to be excused for a while. He would disappear for a moment or two and would return to attend to the guest. It happened many times.

  • Khadija-tul-Kubra
    by: Sayyed A. A. Razwy

    Maisha ya Khadija yamejaa utajiri wa mwongozo wa kimungu. Sifa yake kubwa katika maisha yake ya kiutakatifu, ilikuwa ni imani yake isiyo na kifani katika Uislamu. Imani yake ilikuwa kama jabali katika bahari iliyochafuka.

    Imani za watu wachache kamwe hazikuwekwa katika mtihani mkali kama ile imani ya Khadija. Imani yake ilijaribiwa kwa njaa, kiu, uhamisho na hatari kubwa katika maisha yake na kwa wapendwa wake. Kusema kweli, wakati wa kwanza wa mika kumi ya Uislamu, maisha yake yalikuwa ya mfululizo wa mitihani isiyo na mwisho.

    by: Mahwash Hirmendi


    I met her in the Masjid. No planning had taken me to that Masjid that night. It was just a matter of persuasion of my newly made friend at another Masjid that I should experience Du'a-e Kumail at this Masjid.

    Our introduction was simple and short. Then wrapped in her white cotton chadar, which veiled her face, she busied herself with a long prayer. Sitting by her side, I heard her sober sobbing. We shared the booklet for the Du'a Kumail.

    by: Mahwash Hirmendi


    As her small bare feet were carrying her slim figure on the newly washed sand of the Atlantic shore, she was gazing unto the red sun that was slowly drowning in the grey ocean. The lazily moving ship seemed like a black shadow, tempting to drown with the sun.

    This image seemed very familiar to her. What was it? She squeezed her eyes and looked again, the black image still was slowly moving. An image re-lived in her mind. It was a dawn. She had easily slipped out of her bed on the yard, with the sound of the Azaan.
