3 women characters inspired by Surah An-Nur

In the Quran there are a few surahs and several  verses on women.  Looking at the 24th surah in the Quran, Surah an-Nur, we can learn 3 characteristics of women inspired by this surah:

  1. Muhsanat (محصنات) the fortified

This category of women is fortified and protected from committing big sins.  She is loving not just to her children and spouse but also managing to keep a healthy relationship with her neighbours.

Another character of this category of women is Qana’ah (القناعة), which means satisfaction.

2. Gafilat (غافلات) the unaware

How is it that being unaware is a good character?  According to Buya HAMKA, an Indonesian Islamic  scholar; this kind of lady would always be focusing on her affairs and business only.  She would never try to deviate from her original goal and always think good and positive about others.

Thus she is unaware of negative thoughts about others.

3. Mū’mina (مؤمنات) believer

The character of this type of  believing women is that they are totally obedient to Allah and Ar-Rasul only.  Living in this modern era doesn’t break their will to protect themselves from the fitnah or tests and tribulations by potential predators around them.  Their mind grows with only positivity.

May we benefit from  learning about  these characters.
