Both are blessings from Allah


Presents : "Both are blessings from Allah"

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
All praises and genuflections be to Almighty Allah who created us from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women.
May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the noblest of Mankind, the best of All husbands who never consider a gender greater than another except when it comes to fulfilling obligations and piety. May Allah bless all his companions and his followers up till the day of judgement.

In Shaa Allah we'll take ourselves through the topic : "Both are blessings from Allah"
Among what we should believe in as Muslims is that Allah is in control of creation and He gives to whom He Wills.
We should always be greatful with what Allah gives us in terms of offspring be it a male or female.
They both have their virtues and importance in the Muslim Ummah.
As Muslims We need to correct the sayings and deeds of some people who considered female less than they do with male.

Remember when Allah said :
"It is He who created you from one soul and created from it its mate that he might dwell in security with her. And when he covers her, she carries a light burden and continues therein. And when it becomes heavy, they both invoke Allah, their Lord, "If You should give us a good [child], we will surely be among the grateful."
Suratul 'Araaf 189
Therefore when our wife happens to give birth we should be happy with the gender Allah has brought forth from her i.e Male or Female.
There are some people who are actually used to saying
"Oh! The baby isn't a boy, the wife is so weak. If not she should have given birth to a boy".
My brother give thanks to Allah for what he has given you.

Allah at times chooses not to give some an offspring at all. The Qur'an says :
To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He creates what he wills. He gives to whom He wills female [children], and He gives to whom He wills males.
The next verse says :
Or He makes them [both] males and females, and He renders whom He wills barren. Indeed, He is Knowing and Competent.
Surah Ash-Shurah v49-50

Remember when the wife of 'Imraan was supplicating to Allah for a save delivery, She was actually expecting a male but when it happens to be a female she made supplications and Allah made her daughter so blessed so much so that Prophet Zakariyah had to supplicate for an offspring too which he has been longing for a long time ago.
The details of this is in Surah Aal-'Imraan V36-39 In Shaa Allah let's try and go through it. May Allah make it a evidence for and not against us Aameen.

Let's be grateful for giving birth is a great mercy from Allah.
We've heard and read from history how great the Women of Islam were before and during the time of the prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
Just as the Men were giving glad tidings of Jannah so were the women.

May Allah grant us all goodness and forgive our Shortcomings.
