Perseverance (2018 NEW RELEASE)
وَضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا امْرَأَتَ فِرْعَوْنَ إِذْ قَالَتْ رَبِّ ابْنِ لِي عِندَكَ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَنَجِّنِي مِن فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَمَلِهِ وَنَجِّنِي مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ
And Allah presents an example of those who believed: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, “My Lord, build for me near You a house in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his deeds and save me from the wrongdoing people.” (66:11)
She grew up as a queen in the palaces of Pharaoh enjoying the life of kings. She also saw the brutality of power, the tyranny of the absolute ruler, and the obedience of the followers and the parish.
However, the light of faith has illuminated her soul, penetrated her heart and lightened her insight. She quickly became bored with the life of misguidance and sought refuge in the shades of faith. She supplicated God to save her from this life. He answered her supplication and made her an example for the believers.
She is Asiyah bint Muzahim (may Allah be pleased with her.
