Lady Fatima - Perfect Pattern of Muslim Womanhood
By: Ainee Haaj
(Fatimah by Dr. Mohammad Iqbal, the Poet of the east)
Mary is hallowed in one line alone,
For that she was the sweet delight of him
Leader of former as of latter saints,
And brought to birth the age of a New Law.
God's words adorn Hath there come any time,
And hard perplexities, the Lion of God,
Accoutered with one sword, one coat of mail.
Love's compasses, the leader of Love's train,
Of sanctity resplendent, guardian
Of all God's peoples; who, that the fierce flame
Trod underfoot the crown and royal ring
And strong right arm of every freeborn man,
Teacher of freedom to God's chosen few.
Of holy children from the mothers come.
Of self-surrender, to all mothers she
Her heart so grieved, because one came in need,
Though creatures all, of light alike and fire,
In her good consort's pleasure. Fortitude
Chanted the Book, she ground the homely mill.
But wept contrition's offering of pearls
To gather, as they glistened i the dust,
God's Law a fetter of locks about my feet
Else had I surely gone about her tomb
