It is heartening to see women of Fatemi Dawat recognized for the tireless service they perform for the community and for our children. As a member of Fatemi Dawat I can vouch that every one of these titles is richly deserved. Syedna's sisters teach our children with love and dedication, write sijil articles and marsiyahs and madehs, train our zakereen, help people get married, all while holding down important jobs and earning their own living, in some cases. These titles were not bought with money but rather earned with service.dal-chaval-palidu wrote:
So what do these titles mean? This is not a frivolous question, or one asked to put down anybody or glorify anybody. I am just trying to understand the meaning of the words:
Yaqutatu, Zumurradatu , Lu’lu’atu, Jumanatu, and Marjanatu. What is the meaning in Arabic of these words?
Thanks for you partial answers.
Yaqut - ruby
Lulua - pearl
what about the others ???
And, I have lots of respect for the fact that Syedna Qutbuddin encouraged his daughters to study, and for the fact that they did; the same for SKQ saheb's sons too. I also understand that the point that SMB bhai mentioned is a valid point. Let this not degenerate into another endless argument.
Finally, the point that SMB bhai raised is something that fatemi dawat folks should consider. Not so much acknowledging the achievements of hardworking people, but acknowledging and recognizing the brave folks who stood with Syedna Qutbuddin, and continue to stay with STF inspite of social pressures.
