Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Mazar-e-Sharif: On the eve of Hazrat Zahra's birthday and Women's Day, Hojjat-ul-Islam Sayed Baqir Hashemi, an expert on religious issues in Baghlan, told AVA: The virtue and greatness of Fatima Zahra (s.a.), in Islam and in the conditions of the Arab society at that time, shows that a woman has a great position in all human dignity.
According to this religious scholar, when we study the life of Hazrat Zahra (s.a.), and her status, we see that a woman in Islam has achieved so much greatness that she becomes a role model not only for women but for all of humanity.
Mr. Hashemi added: Before Islam, women were a disgrace to the society, but Islam and the Holy Prophet (PBUH) defined a place for women and she spread the carpet to the throne and gave them status and greatness.
This religious scholar said that in Islam, a woman is presented as a mother, sister, or wife, and the whole society should serve her, and in Islam, a woman can be like a man in all social, economic, and political activities by maintaining the Islamic veil.
He emphasized: In Islam, we have that divine inspiration has been revealed to women, and wherever the Qur'an addresses men, it also mentions women. As we see in Islamic history, Allah (SWT) inspired in the hearts of Moses' mother and Mary, the mother of Jesus, and with this inspiration, he gave her dignity and greatness.
According to this religious scholar, in Islam, a woman has all the independence of thought, theory, freedom of thought, expression, pen, work and can have all human values.
Mr. Hashemi also said that Islam wants the woman to have her own lofty position, to be a mujahid, to have a religious life and to be the center of the family. As Fatimah Zahra (s.a.), means that Allah (SWT) has made a woman the center of creation and the center of the family of infallibility, and he (SWT) told the Prophet (PBUH) that the light of Fatima Zahra (s.a.), was created before all mankind.
This religious scholar stated that due to the approach of Fatima Zahra's (s.a.) birthday, the Islamic community should study and examine the life of heavenly women, especially Zahra Marzia (s.a.), so that they can become familiar with her life and make her their role model.
He pointed out that if the women of the Islamic society follow the example of the life of Hazrat Zahra (s.a.), they will undoubtedly reach the true position and greatness of women defined by Islam.
At the same time, Zahra Alizada, professor of Balkh University, also said: Women are responsible for the development of human beings and educators of society. Because the prosperity and health of the society depends on raising children based on Islamic and religious teachings, in this regard, empowering and increasing the skills of women and raising the level of religious and scientific awareness of mothers has an important effect on raising children and strengthening the family foundation.
She added that although the enemy seeks to create religious deviation, it is possible to take action to preserve the authentic Afghan Islamic culture and promote it with a deep understanding of the category of cultural invasion.
According to Mrs. Alizada, a woman is actually like the roots of a tree. If the roots are properly fertilized, they will naturally have green leaves and healthier branches, but if the roots are ineffective, the leaves and branches will be poisonous. .
She emphasized that due to such a position, an educated woman who has received proper education plays an active role in the dynamics and mobility of the society.
Zahal Heydari, a Balkh cultural expert, also said: Fatima Zahra (s.a.) was not an ordinary woman; A spiritual woman, a kingdom woman, a human being in the full meaning of human, the whole version of humanity, the whole truth of a woman, the whole truth of a human being and all the characteristics of prophets are in her.
