The womb- AL RAHIM, sounds like raheem, meaning mercy, is mentioned in the first verse of chapter 4 of the Quran called “an-nisa” the women.

“O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah , through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed Allah is ever, over you, an Observer.”

“O mankind! Have Taqwa of your Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him He created his mate, and from them both He created many men and women, and have Taqwa of Allah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and revere the wombs. Surely, Allah is always watching over you.”

Ibn kathir(ra) is one of the classical Islamic great scholars but his tafsir of this verse it a little bit lacking and not surprising because a man ,although conceived in a womb,  does not possess a womb and all that goes with it. “And revere the womb by not cutting the relations of the womb, but keep and honor them, as Ibn `Abbas, `Ikrimah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, Ad-Dahhak, Ar-Rabi`, and others have stated.

It is a great shame that over  the years too many Muslims have neglected the body and focus their Islam on the heart and the head, the intellectual and the spiritual, forgetting the body is the vehicle  that facilitates the actions of ibada/worship and pleasure.

Inspired, maasha’Allah (as God would have it be) many many moons ago by Queen Efua, an African American naturopath and healer, we are going to begin to start taking our womb health more seriously, insha’Allah (God willing)
