And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what [must ordinarily] appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers! Turn all together towards Allaah, that you may attain Bliss.
-The Muslim Woman And Her Rabb
One of the most prominent distinguishing features of the Muslim woman is her deep faith in Allah (SWT), and her sincere conviction that whatever happens in this universe, and whatever fate befalls human beings, only happens through the will and decree of Allah (SWT); whatever befalls a person could not have been avoided, and whatever does not happen to a person could not have been made to happen. A person has no choice in this life but to strive towards the right path and to do good deeds - acts of worship and other acts - by whatever means one can, putting all his trust in Allah (SWT), submitting to His will, and believing that he is always in need of Allah’s (SWT) help and support.
“I don’t think the child in this photo knew what had just happened to him or knew that his father and himself were the only survivors of a large-caliber artillery round that crashed through his house. His mother and two other family members lost their lives. At one of the city’s last standing hospitals, the child kept looking at his hands as if to say, What is this red liquid on my hands? What is happening to me?
I left the room and doctors came rushing in. Crouching in the corner outside was the father, who looked up at me with watery eyes. As we made eye contact, he raised his right hand and pointed it to the sky as if to call for God’s help. Our ears were engulfed by the torturous sound of the child screaming and calling for his father. I have never felt more anesthetized as I did that day. I simply felt empty — and do to this day. I still don’t know how to react to what I witnessed. I’m still trying to process it.”

Being calm and behaving in a manner worthy of respect is as good as the making of sacrifices.
Whenever the fight grew fierce and the eyes of the fighters were red, we used to resort to the Prophet for succor. He was always closest to the enemy.
To be a successful leader in any task, being brave is of the utmost importance. You should never fear the consequences of your decisions knowing that what you do is beneficial for everyone around you. You should try your best in all situations and have faith that Allah will ensure a successful outcome in any situation.
The greatest female warrior! Khawlah (R.A) fought alongside Khalid bin Waleed (R.A.) and saved her brother and close companion Dirar (R.A). She brought fear into the eyes of the enemy and fought with bravery and courage.
Ibn `Umar relates that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) placed his hand on his shoulder and said: “Be in the world as if you are a stranger or a wayfarer.”
(A foreigner does not greatly enjoy the company of other people. She generally feels alienated from them, since she rarely comes across a person she knows. She is a person in a weak position who needs to remain wary. The same goes for a wayfarer. Allah’s Messenger compared the believers to them to show their asceticism, taking from the world only their basic needs.)
