Lessons from the two of the greatest women ever. These amazing women are prime examples achieving the balance of serving Allah and doing the daily tasks of this world:



Khadijah radhiallahu anha, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, was an unrivalled embodiment of faith, productivity and unconditional support. She successfully managed her father’s business interests but did not waste this wealth on materialistic things. She used to feed and clothe the poor, assist her relatives financially, and provide for the marriage of those of her kin who had no means to marry. She was a caring wife who was the first to believe in and support the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.


Of Khadijah radhiallahu anha, the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: ‘The best of the world’s women is Mariam (in her lifetime), and the best of the world’s women is Khadijah radhiallahu anha (in her lifetime).’ [Bukhari]



Fatimah radhiallahu anha, the daughter of the Prophet , is also a legendary beacon of productivity and balance: a fervent worshipper of Allah who was deeply committed to her family. She was a loyal wife, an excellent daughter as well as a keen helper of the poor and needy. She would often give all the food she had to those in need even if she herself remained hungry. Her life with Ali radhiallahu anhu was simple and frugal, yet she remained content with this and was still able to help the poor.


Additionally, Fatimah radhiallahu anha  would often bring her two sons to see their grandfather who was exceedingly fond of them. Despite the hard work and time she had to put into her daily chores, she never forgot the importance of family bonding and prioritized it in her life. Her upbringing of her children saw them turn out to be pillars of the Muslim society and pious worshippers of Allah. Fatimah radhiallahu anha’s closeness to the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and the greatness of his love for her shines clearly in his statement: ‘Fatimah is a part of me, and he who makes her angry, makes me angry.’ [Bukhari]


The Muslim woman plays a crucial role in nurturing people to get to paradise as well as trying to get to Paradise herself. She balances the daily demands of life with pleasing Allah.
