In Hajar, I see a strong role model, her story fills my eyes with tears and her sacrifices touch the very core of my heart. I identify with her is so many ways and aspire to be like her in many more . Especially in the way she took instruction from Allah and ever so quietly left what she had grown accustom to. Hajar is depicted not only as a victim of oppression (she is a slave girl), but also as a woman who is faced with difficult choices. In spite of this, she is one of the most committed believers known in history.. For me, Hajar’s story has always been one of hope. Unlike other wives and mothers, her situation is in constant flux. She goes from being a slave girl, to joining Prophet Ibrahim’s household, and bearing him a son. Later, due to tensions in the prophet’s home and Allah’s orders, she is abandoned in the middle of the desert. As she strives to feed her child and save him from dehydration, she displays complete trust and commitment to Allah. In return, she is rewarded for her faith, her conviction and her services to Allah’s plan. The well of Zamzam is Hajar’s remuneration, and its waters remind us to follow in the steps of this blessed mother of Islam.
Hajar is an icon of faith and a strong woman. A woman who fights and loves with all her soul. She is not only a mother who protects her child, but also a committed believer who seeks and awaits guidance despite her own despair. Her image reminds us that Allah oversees everything, and that every moment of hopelessness has its place in the bigger scheme of things.
Hajar teaches us that above all and in all circumstances , we should put all our trust in Allah.
