Visit to Beitul Amaan and Beitun Nur: 20 December 2014

On the 20th December 2014, the committee members of the An-Nisa Women’s forum along with some of their family members and 3 senior ladies from Manenberg (who attend a weekly Dhikr with Aunty Suraya Adams) visited the Beitul Amaan Old Age Home in Wynberg and the Beitun Nur Children’s Home in Schaapkraal.
Aunty Suraya liaised with the matron-in-charge, Aunty Marel who gave us permission to conduct a Dhikr amongst the elderly at the Beitul Amaan Old Age Home. It currently has 75 residents and 10 staff members. We commenced the Dhikr at 2:30pm and thereafter the staff made plates for all the residents from the refreshments that were brought along. They also served tea to the ladies from An-Nisa. The feedback was extremely positive. Aunty Marel said “the Dhikr was beautiful and we are most welcome to return”. Just before leaving, the Manageress of the Beitul Amaan home, walked in and was also very happy to have us there.
After Asr, we then went to visit the Beitun Nur Children’s Home in Schaapkraal, Ottery. Currently there are about 15 children ranging in ages 1 to 17 years old and 4 mothers that are being looked after. When we arrived there were 4 children and 1 mother present. The rest were taken out by foster parents for the day. We were happily greeted by the manageress who was more than happy to accommodate us as well as in the future. Fatima Toefy brought along toys and party packs which were handed out to the children present and the rest was left there for the other children.
Both these outreach programs were well received, Alhumdulillah and established a good platform for future programs, Insha-Allah.

Alhamdulillah,  We thank Allah SWT for the mercy and blessings showered upon us. We wish to thank each and everyone who partook in the An-Nisa Moulood un Nabi Celebration.

We thank those who planned it, who partook in the Khatam al Quran ( males too), who donated eateries, the taxi drivers, the guests, cleaners etc.

Please accept our humble apologies for any shortcomings.

All praise and thanks is due to Allah, the Mighty, the Merciful. 

Saturday, 21 February 2015, proved to be remarkable display of togetherness, commitment, love and empowerment. The programme went off well, the ladies enjoyed the qasa'id, recitals and address by Banoo Abdullah. Her talk was truly inspiring to us as women, wives and muslims in the world as it is today.

The perfect example of commitment to a common goal-fulfilling Allah's command-was a valuable lesson that could be learnt from the talk. Often, we under-estimate the power of genuine concern for and commitment to one another. We learnt on Saturday that Allah proves to us that He places divine love in our hearts for Him and a special kind of love in our hearts for our spouses or dear ones when our main aim is to please Allah. Prophet Muhammad (s) revered his wife Khadijah because of her piety, obedience and personality. 

Our beloved Rasulullah was chosen by our Lord, we were chosen to follow his example and so many pious and exemplary women were chosen to be part of his life.

Yes, this day was set aside to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad, but at the same time we could learn a profound yet very concise lesson from his character and interaction with his beloved wife:

As women we have a major role to play in our religion and a place in society. We must remember that we are the vehicle of Allah's mercy, when a miraculous journey takes place inside our wombs. We are vehicles and residences of comfort for our loved ones because it is in our very nature to comfort and console. We are ambassadors of Islam and the teachers in our homes. Allah has granted us an elevated status because we just are who we are.

Let us remember the following:
Abu Hurayra stated, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'The most perfect of believers in belief is the best of them in character. The best of you are those who are the best to their women."
