To My Muslim Daughter

To My Muslim Daughter

All praises be to Allah. Peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, his family and companions, and people who follows his path and guidance until the Day of Recounting.

To the faithful, blossoming flower, who were trained to be modest, I conveyed the following verses from the Qur’an. Since the best talk is about the Book of Allah (the Qur’an), and the best guidance is the guidance of Allah’s messenger – peace and prayer of Allah be upon him-.

“And call to mind when Luqman said to his son while exhorting him: “My son, do not associate others with Allah in His Divinity. Surely, associating others with Allah in His Divinity is a mighty wrong.” We enjoined upon man to be dutiful to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning lasted two years. (We, therefore, enjoined upon him): “Give thanks to Me and to your parents. To Me is your ultimate return. But if they press you to associate others with Me in My Divinity, (to associate) those regarding whom you have no knowledge (that they are My associates), do not obey them. And yet treat them well in this world, and follow the way of him who turns to Me in devotion. Eventually it is to Me that all of you shall return, and I shall then tell you all that you did.” (Luqman said): “Son, Allah will bring forth everything even if it be as small as the grain of a mustard seed even though it be hidden inside a rock or (anywhere) in the heavens or earth. Allah is Most Subtle, All-Aware. Son, establish Prayer, enjoin all that is good and forbid all that is evil, and endure with patience whatever affliction befalls you. Surely these have been emphatically enjoined. Do not (contemptuously) turn your face away from people, nor tread haughtily upon earth. Allah does not love the arrogant and the vainglorious. Be moderate in your stride and lower your voice. Verily the most disgusting of all voices is the braying of the donkey.”

May Allah grow you to be a good and lofty plant, preserve you and your parent with His protection. Indeed, Allah is very close, The Granter of wishes, and The Hearer of the du’a.
