Commentary from Tanwir al-Miqbas:
Then it was revealed about Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet (pbuh) and Nusaybah Bint Ka’b al-Ansariyyah who said: ” O Messenger of Allah! Allah does not mention women with anything good; it is all about men “: (Lo! men who surrender unto Allah) the men who profess Allah’s divine Oneness, (and women who surrender) and women who profess Allah’s divine Oneness, (and men who believe) truly (and women who believe) truly, (and men who obey and women who obey, and men who speak the Truth) and men who are true in their faith (and women who speak the Truth) and women who are true in their faith, (and men who persevere) in fulfilling the commands of Allah and endure misfortunes (and women who persevere) in fulfilling the commands of Allah and endure misfortunes, (and men who are humble and women who are humble, and men who give alms) from their wealth (and women who give alms) from their wealth, (and men who fast and women who fast, and men who guard their modesty and women who guard (their modesty), and men who remember Allah much and women who remember Allah hath prepared for them forgiveness) of their sins (and a vast reward) and an abundant reward in Paradise.
