    Peace be upon Sarah
    The equal of Abraham
    Who was patient with him
    Together they were blessed
    Their chosen offspring and them
    Along with Lut
    Making the holy family of the time

    Peace be upon Mariam
    The holy Sister of Musa
    Who the Mana flowed through her hands
    Who watched over Musa for the sake of him and her mother
    And was equal to Musa and Harun

    Peace be upon Mariam mother of Jesus named after the first Mariam
    Who faced accusations and bore them patiently
    And who's complete purity had no proof except from the divine books
    And words of his Messengers
    Who was truly exalted and pious

    Peace be upon Fatima
    The best chosen lady of all time
    Daughter yet mother of her father
    Who called to the last revelation
    Spoke bravely in times of peril
    And was a Messenger of her time
    Equal of Mohammad and Ali
    She is still there in the bright sky
    Luminous, holy, and light to the world

    Other then his chosen ones
    Peace be upon the saints of women
    From Zainab who rallied people back to cause of justice
    And right path
    The mother of afflictions
    And Umal Baneen who sacrificed so many sons in love of Hussain
    And Asiya wife of Pharaoh who's heart was always with the oppressed
    And who called God in times of trial and peril
    Taking side of truth
    And Umm Salama a wife of the Prophet,
    who would witnessed the Angels cry for Hussain
    And peace be upon Khadija The Great
    Who without her wealth Islam foundations would not have been built
    Peace be upon Ma'asooma sister of Imam Reda
    Who was a scholar and a proof of the right path by her love of Ahlulbayt

    Peace be upon every chosen lady who was part of an Ahlulbayt chosen by God
    Equal of the Messengers and Prophets of that time
    And peace be upon every mother of a holy chosen one by God
    Who God out of his wisdom chose them to be a mother of a guiding leader to mankind

    Good luck to everyone everywhere who thinks we should deal with others with decency, respect and inclusion.

    Too often are women in Islam marginalized and disparaged by the ignorant whether they be Muslim or non-Muslim.

    I'm most familiar with Rabia of Basra but there are others of note as well.

    Women definitely are oppressed, one of the most defining moments for me in my life was a dream in which I was hearing Hawa/Eve (a) sing me a song about women and their dignity yet oppression in a very long dream I had, and I mean it was very long. It was a very long dream in which I witnessed oppression to women while Hawa (a) (Adam's (a) wife) was singing me a song about women, their dignity and oppression they face.

    Mohammad's (s) last will and dying wish is reported to have emphasized on three things:

    Quran
    Ahlulbayt.
    And treating women well.

    Sadly, I believe none of the two trusts did we honor and women faced the brunt end of our oppression towards those two.

    Most dreams are ordinary and have no lasting meaning. But the dream you describe to me has lasting meaning.

    Thank you for kind words. Yeah I've had 7 dreams in my life with defining meaning. I will make a thread about them sometime. This was one of them.

    The female divine beings most revered in my religion are called Aštoreth, Ereškigal, and Tiamat.

    May your religion prosper.
