Juwayriyah

 

She was the slave-girl of a king. He freed her. Upon seeing the great ‘ibadah of the sufi ’Abu ‘Abdullah Turabi, she married him and used to engage in ‘ibadah as well. Once she saw beautiful tents in her dream. She asked for who these were. A reply came that they are for those who recite the Quran in tahajjud. After seeing this dream, she abandoned sleeping at night. She used to awaken her husband and tell him that the caravan is moving on.

Lesson: O women! You should engage in ‘ibadah yourself and urge your husband as well.
