Scintillating Women!

December 22, 2009 at 8:28 pm 4 comments

I can’t resist myself to publish this post today though it’s my second post in a single day which I rarely do on requisites.

A 90- year old Emirati woman, Fatima Mohammad Ali will compete with her 50 grandchildren in one of the Quran memorization competitions in Khorfakkan, UAE.

She will participate in the competition by memorizing and reciting the Holy Quran. Her participation is considered first of its kind in the world.

Fatima joined Al Hassawi Holy Quran Award in 2001 since the Establishment of Quran and Sunnah Award in Sharjah.

One of her grandchildren, said she has been taking part in the competition despite her illiteracy, as she listens to cassettes and gets help from her other grandchildren.

Fatima walks 700 meters everyday to get to the mosque, where the memorization takes place and refuses to be dropped by anyone.

The Al Hassawi Holy Quran Award has prepared a special honoring ceremony for Fatima at the end of the competition.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
