What were women like in the time of the Prophet?
Throughout Islamic history, women were removed from harm, hardship, prejudice and discrimination, and even instant death. The Quran warned against female infanticide, female mutilation, preventing women from becoming learned teachers and scholars, preventing women from venturing into the masjid.
Listen to the discussion on the topic of Muslim women with Alima Ashfaq, during her visit to Toronto from the UK for the Being Me Conference. Alima is the founder and director of I Am Alima and Women of Ilm, a movement to revive the love of knowledge.
