The women by nature, in essence, is a nurturer. She has been granted the womb, not the man, but this physical, external womb is only one aspect, one dimension to this nurturing capacity of hers. It would be premature if you limit her nurturing nature only to bringing up babies. However noble that is, it is only one manifestation, but there’s no need to confine this nurturing capacity to nurturing babies. This nurturing inner layer can manifest itself and permeate through society. We need nurturing teachers, nurturing doctors, as well as nurturing mothers. The important thing is she has to nurture, wherever she goes, from the house to the society. This is her role, and by being granted this freedom, she must now work on this nurturing capacity to benefit society.

I sought for the light of the heart and found it in contemplation and crying. I sought for crossing the Bridge (on the Day of Resurrection) and found it in giving charity. I sought for the light of the face and found it in the night prayer.

If you settle your accounts with Allah and take refuge in remembering Him, you need not fear any creature; as the reckoning of creatures is transitory, while the reckoning before Allah is eternal.

We want South Lebanon to be unassailable, a rock upon which Israel’s dreams are shattered and a haven for those who fight for the liberation of Palestine. Let the people of the South always be at the forefront of the fight against Israel and for the liberation of Palestine.
