Where is she? I have been waiting to meet her all my life… As I wonder lonely, I hope to meet her. I hope to be inspired, I await my role model. Does she exist, or has it become a distant dream? Will the Heroine rise? Yes, she is you.
A woman with a purpose is rare,
A woman with a purpose is everything,
Such women do exist, however,
It requires dedication to become a Heroine,
It definitely does not happen by coincidence,
It definitely does not happen over night,
But, it does happen over time, with practice.
You just need a strong driving force and an ambition that strives for perfection and will never settle for anything less than excellence,
Respect yourself, respect your mind, respect your body,
Do what no other woman has ever done before, insha Allah,
This is the only way you will ever be remembered in the sight of Allah .
Depending on what you give away for His sake, you will be rewarded.
“And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full” [Qur’an, ‘Ali ‘Imran: 185]
Is it worth the struggle? Yes it is.
