Female Figures in Islamic History

To all women. *Hidden Female Figures in Islamic History*

*Have you heard of Nusayba bint Ka'ab?*

The female warrior who courageously defended the Prophet (S) in several battles.

The one whom the Prophet (S) said about her at Uhud, "Whenever I looked to the right or left, I saw her fighting in front of me."

The one whom the Prophet (S) asked, "From where can anyone get courage like you, O Umm Umarah (her nickname)?"

*Have you ever heard of Rufayda bint Sa'ad?*

Also known as Rufayda al-Aslamiyyah, who was the first female nurse in Islamic history.

The Prophet (S) ordered the wounded and dying to be sent specifically to her tent during battles.

Learning medical knowledge from her father, she became an expert in the medical field, and began training other women companions to become nurses as well.

She was known as a kind, empathetic healer, as well as a compassionate social worker who took care of orphans, the handicapped and the poor.

*Have you ever heard of Um Mihjaan?*

The cleaner of the masjid, who beautified and maintained the Prophet (S)'s blessed mosque.

The one whom the Prophet (S) was upset when she passed away, because nobody had informed him of it.

"Why did you not inform me?'' he asked his companions.

He then asked to see her grave, and prayed his own individual Salat ul Janaazah over her.

👉Isn't it amazing that a woman was entrusted to take care of the masjid of Rasulallah (S), yet today several Muslim societies won't even let women into the masjid?

*Have you ever heard of Umm Sa'd Jamilah bint As'ad Ansariyyah?*

A noble teacher of Islam.

It is reported that Dawud ibn Husayn, a companion of the Prophet (S), used to take Qur'anic lessons from her.

According to ibn Athir, Umm Sa'd had memorized the Qur'an and used to give regular lessons.

*Have you ever heard of the female companion who owned her own farm?*

She employed many men to work under her, she was their boss, and they tended to her crops.

*Have you ever heard that many female companions were businesswomen?*

Like the wife of Abdullah ibn Masud, who was the main breadwinner of her family, making handicrafts by her own hand and selling her goods in the marketplace.

*Have you heard that Aisha bint Abu Bakr was actually considered a "Muftiyah" meaning a female Mufti?*

Did you know that title could even exist for women?

Men and women would come from all over the Islamic world to consult her about the Shariah, and she would perform ijtihad and issue fatawa.

There are several times where she even corrected the fatawa of other sahaba, since she was privy to a lot of ahadith that others had not heard because of her close relationship with the Prophet (S).

*Have you ever heard of Umm al-Darda?*

A prominent female scholar and jurist of Islam in the 7th century who would teach her lessons in the male section of the masjid.

Her class was attended by men and women, Imams, jurists, and Hadith scholars.

*Have you ever heard of the numerous women scholars who played a pivotal role in the lives of many of the ulama we look up to?*

👉The female scholar Nafisa bint al-Hasan taught hadith to Imam ash-Shafi'i.

👉Ibn Hajar mentioned that he studied under 53 women scholars.

👉Ibn Asakir al-Dimashqi took hadith from 80 female narrators of hadith.

*Have you ever heard of Fatima al-Fihri?*

The educated Muslim woman who founded the world's very first university,

The University of al-Qarawiyyin, which still stands today as one of the most prominent institutions of Islamic learning.

_These are just a few of the hidden female figures of our Islamic history._

_Women who exercised the rights that Islam had granted her, untainted by the patriarchy and cultures that stifle women today._

*Learn about their names. Share their names.*

*Rewrite their names into the books of history.*

Sabr or Patience !!

Patience is knowing that your Duas will be answered in a way that is best for you, even if you don't see results right away

Patience is remembering kindness, humility, and humanity while being angry or upset!

When One thinks about patience the first thing that comes to mind is dealing with frustrating people & dealing with disappointment

Patience is not ability to wait but how you act while waiting !!

Patience is bearing what you may think is unbearable, w/ gratitude, knowing this pleases Allah & He will get you through it.

Patience is accepting the situation at hand while realizing that there is good in it

Patience to me means being calm,humble and in control when am frustrated and blinded by negativity.

patience is giving yourself or someone else time, but understanding your own limitations in order to keep oneself sane.

Patience is the ability to endure something that is causing you pain and still keep a sense of sound inner peace with yourself


संग-ए-बे-क़ीमत तराशा और जौहर कर दिया
शम-ए-इल्म-ओ-आगही से दिल मुनव्वर कर दया

*"O people, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.*

*O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your lord and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (interest). Therefore all interst obligation shall henceforth be waived.*

*Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in things, so beware of following him in small things.*

*O people, it is true that you have the right with regards to your woman, but they also have rights over you. If they abide by your rights then to them belong the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it approve, as well as never commit adultery.*

*O people, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH, say your five time daily prayers (salat) fast during the month of ramadan, and give your wealth in zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. You know that every muslim is the brother of another muslim. YOU ARE ALL EQUAL.. No body has superiority over another except by piety and good action.*

*Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and answer for your deeds. O beware, do not stray from the part of righteousness after I am gone.*

*O people, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore people, understand my word, which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my SUNNAH and if you follow these you will not go astray.*

*All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again, and may the last understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness O ALLAH, that I have convyed your message to your people"*

Kyon ki woh khud ko nahi badalta

"Insaan, Ghar badalta hai ... Libaas badalta hai ..... Rishte badalta hai ... Dost badalta hai .... Phir bhi pareshaan kyon rehta hai .... Kyon ki woh khud ko nahi badalta " ....

Isiliye to Mirza Galib ne kaha tha:

"Umer bhar Ghalib yahi Bhool Karta raha, Dhool Chehre pe thi, aur Aina saaf karta raha"...

"Fark Hota hai khuda aur Fakir mein.. Fark hota hai kismat aur Lakir mein, Agar kuch Chaho Aur na Mile, To samaj Lena ki kuch aur Accha Likha hai Takdir mein."

Har Pal mein Pyaar hai, Har Lamhe mein Khushi...
Kho Do to Yaadein hai, Jee Lo to Zindagi....
Mat Socho ki Zindagi mein Kitne Pal hai, Yeh Dekho ki Har Pal mein, Kitni Zindagi hai....
