One day, Asma bint Yazid Radhiyallâhu Anha came to the presence of Rasûlullâh Sallallâhu Alayhi Wa Sallam, who was sitting with his companions. Hadhrat Asma said: “May my parents be sacrificed for you, O Rasûl of Allâh! I have come as a spokesperson for women. Allâh Ta‘âlâ sent you to both men and women. We have believed in you and in Allâh Ta‘âlâ. However, we stay at home, look after your children, and help you with your needs. As for you menfolk, you have been set superior to us; you attend Jumu’ah Salaah (Friday prayers) and other Salah (prayers) in congregation. You visit the sick and attend Janazah Salaah (funeral prayers). You also perform Hajj and Umrah. More importantly, you attend Jihad in the cause of Allah. As for us, when you depart for Hajj, Umrah, or Jihad, we look after your wealth, weave your garments, and look after your children. Shall we have a share in your righteous deeds and their reward?

Upon that, Rasûlullâh Sallallâhu Alayhi Wa Sallam turned to his esteemed companions and said:

Have you seen a person who has asked about the religious matters more eloquently than this woman?

The esteemed companions said: “We do not think there will be anyone that would express themselves so clearly and eloquently.Rasûlullâh Sallallâhu Alayhi Wa Sallam turned to Asma bint Yazid Radhiyallâhu Anha and said:

O woman! Note this and convey it to the women whom you are representing…A woman will achieve the same ajr (reward) of the men that you mentioned when she fulfils her husband’s wishes, supports and helps him fulfil all those ibadat (acts of worship) and gets along with him well.” Hearing these glad tidings, Hadhrat Asma Radhiyallâhu Anha recited Takbir (Allahu Akbar) and Tahlil (La ilaha illallah) out of her joy and went back to the other women.
