Have you ever made an oath to God that you found difficulty sticking to?
Hinnah, the mother of Mary (as), made a promise to Allah that if He granted her a child, she would dedicate him to His service. When she discovered she gave birth to a girl in a time when it wasn’t common for women to worship in the Temple, she was worried. Yet she never wavered in her commitment to her oath.
From naming her daughter to raising her, Hinnah demonstrated tawakkul in Allah through action—so much so that she and her progeny were immortalized in the Qur’an and upheld by God Himself.
