More precious than diamonds

السلام عليكم
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
"O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognised and not annoyed. Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful. "
[Al Ahzab 33:59]
Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down and in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You’ve got to work hard to get them. What about women? Aren't women far more precious than diamonds and pearls?

Ma'sha'allah, lovely.

Here is a poem I wrote about 3 sisters that I know back home (yes, I shared it with one of them).

Three precious gems
Neither one like the other

Formed by one common Creator
Each reflect a unique light when beheld

Of different sizes, yet one is no greater than the others

Enveloped by gentle cloth, so no harm may be inflicted

Their inner most beauty reserved for a select few

The surface alone reveals a certain magnificence

They never fail to remind
That He who has Created is indeed Great

How undeserving of His Gifts are we

Yet He Bestows Mercy and Blessings on whom he Wills
