Sisterhood to me
is a bond that we can’t always see.
when we love our sisters for Allah’s sake
making sure, we are holding up our faith,
knowing our salvation, is at stake.
It’s reaching out to our sisters when in-need
connecting and doing a gracious deed.
But sometimes, it’s just planting a positive seed.
We have to go deep within our hearts,
to bring out the goodness right from the start,
not letting negativity tear us apart.
Sisterhood is learning,
laughing and praying together, too.
Always desiring and giving our best
in whatever we do.
Sisterhood is a connection
given to us by Allah above.
Let’s hold it sacred
and practice-that special
Are you practising sisterhood?
Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will taste the sweetness of faith: 1. The one to whom Allah and His Apostle become dearer than anything else. 2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake. 3. Who hates to revert to disbelief (Atheism) after Allah has brought (saved) him out from it, as he hates to be thrown in fire.”
Bukhari Book 2, Hadith 20
