04 – Saintly Women (Part 4): Lady Asiya – Background and the Mother of Moses – Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan

In this episode, Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan begins covering the life of Lady Asiya (may Allah be pleased with her). The story of Lady Asiya is connected with the life of Prophet Musa (Moses) (peace be upon him). So before getting into the life of Lady Asiya, Shaykh Abdurragmaan highlights the story of the mother of Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), and her extraordinary role in in the life of Prophet Musa (peace be upon him). He highlights her complete reliance upon Allah Most High. Shaykh Abdurragmaan tells the story of how she was able to preserve the life of Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) in infancy. Then how she followed the command of Allah to cast Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) in the river, which led to him reaching Pharaoh’s household and Lady Asiya (may Allah be pleased with her).

This episode is part of the series Saintly Women, with Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan. In a time when women’s rights are in question, this series provides clear Prophetic guidance on the dignified and critical role of women from the Islamic perspective through the role model of five saintly women. Shaykh Abdurragmaan highlights the lives and lessons of Sayyida Khadija bint Khuwaylid, Sayyida Fatima al-Zahra, Sayyida Asiya, Sayyida Maryam bint Imran, and Sayyida bint Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (may Allah be please with them all).

The lives and lessons of these five saintly women will be covered due to their high virtue and status given in the Qur’an and sunna. The series will extract lessons of guidance from their lives so that Muslim women can take them as role models. It is important for both men and women to know about these saintly women, to follow their virtuous character, and to teach the generations to come how to follow them as role models, especially the girls and young ladies.
