What is Nurse Day?
We recognize our dear prophet’s granddaughter, Lady Zainab, as a saint and revere her for leading a life dedicated to fighting for justice and equality. Lady Zaynab is revered by many for being the epitome of faith, patience, and grace after the tragedy of Karbala. In the battle of Karbala during the 7th-century, Hussain, grandson of Prophet Muhammad, and a small group of sincere followers stood for love, kindness, piety, and justice for people of all faiths and social classes against the corrupt rulers of the time. He and his companions fought bravely and, in the end, sacrificed their lives. Under the harsh conditions following the battle, Lady Zainab nursed the sick and supported the weak. In order to keep her cause alive, some Muslim countries mark her birthday as Nurse Appreciation day to honor the nurses’ efforts and sacrifices in nurturing our fellow citizens back to health.
Ahul Bayt Student Association Network (ABSA Network) would like to invite you to use the birthday of Lady Zaynab (peace be upon her) as an opportunity for introducing others to the real Islam. In her honor, we would like to show our appreciation for all the nurses’ efforts and sacrifices in nurturing our fellow citizens back to health. In this event, we pass out roses and informational flyers to nurses at campus clinic in honor of Lady Zaynab (PBUH). The flyers contain Prophet Muhammad quotes about the importance of nurses.
