Secret of Female Soul

"...Women have been created to carry the secret of creation in themselves. Allah has honored them greatly by making their wombs repository of His word which represents the Spirit.

... Women are not created weaker but more generous than men. They are created more beautiful and less fierce, as beauty hates to hurt and harm others. That is why they seem weak to people, but in reality they are not. Angels are the strongest of created beings, and women are closer to the angelic nature than men, as they are readier than men to carry angelic light. It is the good manners and ethics of spirituality which they carry which makes them less forceful than men.

Even physically, however, they are extremely strong. They undergo great upheavals in their body without flinching for the sake of childbirth, and face the direst physical conditions more successfully than men because Allah has enabled them to insure the survival of generations.

Allah gave women five angelic qualities which men rarely have.

They are the source of peace, as Allah said that He created them "so that you might find rest in them" (The Quran, 30:21).

... Secondly they are the oasis of constancy in the midst of chaos and change. That is why they give birth as the mother nurtures and shelters the baby more reliably than the father.

... They perpetuate generations. Through their offspring Allah creates angelic prophets and saints who establish His perpetual remembrance on earth as the angels establish in heaven.

... They are generous and bountiful. They are described as a fertile land in all Scriptures because they give without counting, including life.

... Finally, they are the source of Beauty. Through their softness and subtlety, Allah has crowned the earth with the diadem of angelic grace."
