Don't give up!

(This post is dedicated to the sisters because this is a serious matter we're dealing with.)

Sisters, what do you look for in life? What do you seek?

Sometimes, I feel that some sisters think that Jannah is only for men, but that's not true.

Why are they thinking this way? Maybe because they pass by a bunch of ahadith that mention that majority of people in hell are women and that the amount of women from Dunya in Jannah are little. This is hadith, they are true.

BUT, these ahadith are not there to give up. Astaghfirullah, these are words of the Prophet sallalAllahu alayhi wa salam. These hadiths are here to warn us, to tell us not to be of these women.

So this is my message, don't give up. You possibly cannot do that. Not now, not ever.

Allah says in the Qur'an:

Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions. [16:97]

There are some sisters that when they read these ahadith, they give up and loose hope. No! Sisters you can give up, don't let Shaytan trick you! You're actually going to let yourself burn in Jahanamm? Heck no!

Allah is Al 'Adl, The Just. So you can't possibly give up and say you are doomed. These hadiths are here for encouragement, but sometimes when you read too many of them shaytaan whispers into your ear and tells you it's not worth it, there's no hope.

Don't bring yourself down. Read the hadiths that tell you of the great reward the muslimat can get!

Imam Ahmad narrated (17341) that ‘Ubaadah ibn al-Saamit said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us about the martyrs and mentioned among them, “A woman who is killed by the child in her womb attains martyrdom, and her child will drag her by his umbilical cord to Paradise.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Kitaab al-Janaa’iz, p. 39.

Don't give up striving, don't throw your life away. Remember that Jannah is not free so there's no easy way in. Life's a test and you got to work hard for it.

Let's all strive to get into Jannah al-Firdaws inshaAllah.

May Allah keep us steadfast and strive and attain Jannah al-Firdaws. Ameen.
