Let her remember that one day she will depart from this life.

“Let her remember that one day she will depart from this life. There will come a day when she, along with her beautiful body, her tempting good looks, her adorning of herself, and her tribulation of men will be placed in a hole, dirt will be heaved on her, and worms will eat her; her beauty and glamour will leave her, and she will be in that hole, dependant upon her actions and shackled to what she put forth in this life. There were women before her who lived in castles, then they lived in graves wherein there were petrifying conditions, heads detached from bodies, and eyes hanging on cheeks. So, let the Muslim woman fear Allaah and prepare for this day it’s proper preparation.”
