Surat Maryam

What makes a strong woman?

What makes a strong woman? The kind of woman who lives by principle, who is unfazed by weak morals of those around her. One who does not succumb and give in and thereby give up what the Almighty expects of her (and what does the Almighty expect of her? This, I’ll discuss later.)

The kind of woman who does not need validation of her worth from anyone, least of all strangers, least of all creepy, strange men lurking on the internet. Strangers who, by the way, are most unworthy of her time, attention, words, and… her – are most unworthy to look at her.

How does one become her? How does one raise her?

I find myself coming back to these thoughts often. My thoughts conclude to this āyah,

O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste. – Maryam:28

This is what was said to Maryam ʿalayhas salām when she returned from her time in seclusion clutching an infant.

It is as if they knew that one who grows up in a stronghold such as the one Maryam grew up in will least likely deviate and become corrupt and unchaste.

What strikes me is the ratio of men to wom(a)n mentioned in the āyah.

It’s often said that the fate of our future generations rests upon the shoulders of the women today. If we want an ummah that’s good enough, women better raise good enough children.

But here in the āyah we’ve got a different formula to raising a strong woman – the kind I described earlier. She needs twice the number of righteous men around her than women. Ah.

Or… perhaps this: one woman, a mother, who’s capable, is enough for the daughter to grow up and become an upright woman.

Backtrack to sūrah Āle-ʿImrān and this point is reiterated by a conversation Wife of ʿImrān, Maryam’s mother, had with her Lord.

If you were to look at that conversation, you’ll realise something peculiar, she says, ❝and *I* have named her Maryam…❞, considering the era they lived in, how often do you think a woman got enough freedom to name her child? But she did.

You see, a stronghold isn’t formed overnight by the efforts of one. It needs dedication, effort, sincerity, and the right people to bring it about.

I posted this on Facebook with two quotes from two different friends in the comments, if you want to read that :)

فَاعْبُدْهُ وَاصْطَبِرْ لِعِبَادَتِهِ ۚ
So worship Him and have patience in His worship.
—  Surat Maryam 19:65
The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation.
That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son.


Surat Maryam (Mary) - سورة مريم

Verse 90-91

“And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, "Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten.”

But he called her from below her, “Do not grieve; your Lord has provided beneath you a stream.

And shake toward you the trunk of the palm tree; it will drop upon you ripe, fresh dates.

So eat and drink and be comforted. And if you see from among humanity anyone, say, ‘Indeed, I have vowed to the Most Merciful abstention, so I will not speak today to [any] man.’ ”

-Surat Maryam (19:23-26)

This is where Maryam (AS) may have lived. These are the foundations of what may be her house, and a little ways away is a shrine to her. It was hard to believe where I was and hard not to get a little emotional standing there and seeing this place. Surat Maryam - especially those specific ayat - has given me comfort and peace beyond anything else. Every time I sit down to read her surah I end up wrapped in a blanket, my eyes full of tears. It was a blessing to be able to come to this place.

“Empat Masalah dan Solusinya”
1⃣Jika kamu diuji dengan syahwat dan hawa nafsu,
Periksalah sholat kamu.
Al-Quran, Surat Maryam: 59
“Maka datang sesudah mereka suatu keturunan yang mereka telah melalaikan sholat dan memperturutkan syahwat hawa nafsunya”
2⃣Jika kamu merasa keras hati, berperangai akhlak buruk, sial sengsara dan tidak ada kemudahan,
Periksalah hubunganmu dengan ibumu dan baktimu kepadanya
“Dan (Dia jadikan aku) berbakti kepada ibuku, dan Dia tidak menjadikan aku seorang yang sombong lagi celaka” (QS. Maryam: 32)
3⃣Jika kamu merasa depresi, tertekan dan kesempitan dalam hidup,
Periksalah interaksimu dengan Al-Qur'an.
“Dan barangsiapa berpaling dari peringatan-Ku (Al-Qur'an- berdzikir), maka sesungguhnya baginya penghidupan yang sempit” (QS. Thaha: 124)
4⃣Jika kamu merasa kurang tegar dan teguh di atas kebenaran dan gangguan kegelisahan,
Maka periksalah bagaimana pelaksanaanmu terhadap nasehat dan mauidzah yang engkau dengar.
“Sesungguhnya kalau mereka melaksanakan pelajaran yang diberikan kepada mereka, tentulah hal yang demikian itu lebih baik bagi mereka dan lebih meneguhkan (iman mereka)” (QS. Annisa: 66)

Satu-satunya nama perempuan yang jelas disebutin Al-Qur'an adalah Maryam. Bahkan dijadiin nama Surat didalamnya. Surat Maryam.

Menurutku ini unik.

Fyi, Allah memuji habis-habisan Maryam lho didalam Al-Qur'an ini.

Dan kamu tau? Sebelum Allah membahas pujian-pujian lain, yang disebutin pertama oleh Allah adalah Maryam selalu menjaga dirinya. Menjaga kehormatannya.

Well, yang susah buat perempuan sekarang adalah menjaga diri. Terkadang kita suka menyepelekan.

“Nggak apa-apa kok, cuman chatting doang. Ngobrol biasa..”

“Nggak kok, cuman jalan berdua jaraknyapun dua meter..”

“Nggak ngapa-ngapain kok, cuman ngingetin sholat doang..”

Dan kita nggak pernah sadar dan bener-bener tau lewat jalan mana syaitan menggoda kita. Pffft. Ighfirli YaAllah..

Jalan satu-satunya adalah, untuk mengantisipasi doang, mending kalau ngrasa udah agak aneh perangainya, ditanya.

“Maksudnya apa ya?”

Habis gitu kalau gajelas maksudnya, jauhin aja. Jaga diri aja. Ini hanya mengantisipasi. Dan sebentuk rasa taat juga kepada Allah ^^

Well, mari bersama-sama belajar menjaga diri dengan baik sebagaimana Maryam menjaga dirinya dengan sangat baik.

Mangats kaka ^^

[Benefits of Dates - Heavenly Foods]

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful

Allah (SWT) says in the Qur'an, Surat Maryam, verse 25-26

“Shake the trunk of the palm tree, freshly picked dates will drop upon you. Eat, drink and be comforted”

The Prophet (pbuh) who said:

“Whoever eats 10 dates (ajwa) on an empty stomach in the morning will be saved from any harm (black magic) or toxins”

Aba Abdillah al-Hussein (as) who said:
“The food of a house in which dates never enter will not be saturated with blessings”

The Prophet (pbuh) also said: “Gabriel came down to me with Alberni from the Paradise.
(Alberni; is the best kind of dates)”

And “Feed the pregnant woman with dates, especially during the month in which she will give birth to the child becomes intelligent and pure”

And also “Eat the Albaerani date, because it:
- removes exhaustion
- removes hunger
- has 72 doors of healings”

The Prophet (pbuh) described the Albaerani date as:

It is useful in many things:

- strengthens the backbone
- deranges the devil
- makes the food easy to swallow
- adds flavor
- strengthens the eyesight and hearing
- Brings you closer to Allah
- Keeps you away from the devil
- Strengthens the intercourse
- Keeps you away from the illness

Amir Al-Mu'mineen Imam Ali (as) said: “Eat the dates, for they have the cure for the ills”

Abi abdillah al-Hussein (as) also said: “The Prophet (pbuh) used to break his fast with dates”

Healthy benefits of the dates:

- Prepares the stomach for digesting the food

The Prophet (pbuh) who said: “Eat the dates with butter, and with bread, and in odd numbers (3, 5, 7 etc.)

The date:

Eating it on an empty stomach kills the worms

And it is:

- Rich in magnesium which protects from cancer
- It has a significance impact on calming the nerves for people with neurological diseases

- Doesn’t spread the bacteria or microbes and what lies within the date kills the germs that may infect the human

It activates the glands

It strengthens the nerves

Eating one date provides you with energy that is sufficient enough for a whole day

And the date protects from several cases:

- Night blindness
- Dry skin
- Recurrence of cough and lack of Vitamin A
- Softens the bone and lack of Vitamin D

●[ التمر - ثمر الجنة]

قال الله عزوجل في سورة مريم ع بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
{ وهزي إليك بجذع النخلة تساقط عليك رطبا جنيا فكلي واشربي وقري عينا } سورة مريم 25-26.

عن النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) قال: من تصبح بعشر تمرات عجوة لم يضره ذلك اليوم سحر ولا سم.

وعن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام)
قال: بيت لا تمر فيه جياع أهله.

وقال (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم): نزل علي جبريل بالبرني من الجنة (البرني: نوع من أجود التمر)

وقال (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم): أطعموا المرأة في شهرها التي تلد فيه التمر، فإن ولدها يكون حليما نقيا.

وقال (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم): عليكم بالبرني، فإنه
-يذهب بالاعياء
-ويدفأ من القر
-ويشبع من الجوع،
-وفيه اثنان وسبعون بابا من الشفاء.

وعنه (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) يصف البرني،
قال: فيه تسع خصال:
-يقوي الظهر،
-ويخبل الشيطان،
-ويمرئ الطعام،
-ويطيب النكهة،
-ويزيد في السمع والبصر،
-ويقرب من الله عزوجل،
-ويباعد من الشيطان،
-ويزيد في المباضعة،
-ويذهب بالداء.

وعن أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) قال: كلوا التمر، فإن فيه شفاء من الادواء.

عن الحسين بن علي، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: إن رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) كان يبتدئ طعامه إذا كان صائما بالتمر.

ومن فؤائد التمر الصحية.

- غذاء سهل الهضم ولا يرهق المعدة.

- يحد من الشعور بالجوع الشديد الذي يشعر به الصائم

- تهيئ التمور المعدة لاستقبال الطعام

- تقي من الاصابة بالقبض (الامساك).

- مدرر للبول ويغسل الكلى.

- ينظف الكبد من السموم.

- يهدئ من التهيج العصبي

وجاء عن النبي أنه أكل التمر بالزبد ، وأكل التمر بالخبز ، وأكل التمر مفردا (يعني 3 تمرات او 7 او 5 وهكذا)ً
-مقوي للكبد .
-ملين للطبع .
وأكله على الريق :-يقتل الدود

وهو :
من الأغذية الغنية بعنصر المغنيسيوم التي تحمي من مرض السرطان

- وله أثراً كبيراً على تهدئة الأعصاب بالنسبة للمصابين بالأمراض العصبية

-وفيه مزيج طبيعي من الحديد والكالسيوم يهضمه البدن ويستقبله بسهولة

والتمر لاينقل الجراثيم او الميكروبات وان السوس الذي بداخل التمر يفتك بالجراثيم التي قد تصيب الانسان

وان التمر البرني يعد اكسير الشباب وفيه سر عظيم .
وانه ينشط الغدد .
ويقوي الاعصاب

والتمرة الواحدة تمدك بسعرات تكفيك لمجهود يوم كامل .

ويقي التمر من عدة امور منها

1- العشو الليلي

2- جفاف الجلد

3- تكرار الاصابة بالسعال ونقص فيتامين - A

Verses 88-95 of Mary – Chapter 19 of the Quran

وَقَالُوا اتَّخَذَ الرَّحْمَنُ وَلَدًا (88) لَقَدْ جِئْتُمْ شَيْئًا إِدًّا (89) تَكَادُ السَّمَوَاتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْهُ وَتَنْشَقُّ الْأَرْضُ وَتَخِرُّ الْجِبَالُ هَدًّا (90) أَنْ دَعَوْا لِلرَّحْمَنِ وَلَدًا (91) وَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِلرَّحْمَنِ أَنْ يَتَّخِذَ وَلَدًا (92) إِنْ كُلُّ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِلَّا آَتِي الرَّحْمَنِ عَبْدًا (93) لَقَدْ أَحْصَاهُمْ وَعَدَّهُمْ عَدًّا (94) وَكُلُّهُمْ آَتِيهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَرْدًا (95)

88. They claim: “The Most Gracious Lord has taken a son to Himself.” 89. Indeed, [by this assertion] you have brought forth something monstrous. 90.The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation. 91. That men should ascribe a son to the Most Gracious. 92. When it does not befit the Most Gracious that He should take a son. 93. There is no one in the heavens and the earth but that he comes to the Most Gracious as a servant. 94. Certainly He has comprehensive knowledge of them all and He has numbered them a (comprehensive) numbering. 95. And every one of them will appear before Him on Resurrection Day in a lonely state [without any helper, protector or defender].
