What has been the role of women in Islamic history? Who are the great women of Islam? Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:
مَنۡ عَمِلَ صَـٰلِحࣰا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوۡ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤۡمِنࣱ فَلَنُحۡیِیَنَّهُۥ حَیَوٰةࣰ طَیِّبَةࣰۖ وَلَنَجۡزِیَنَّهُمۡ أَجۡرَهُم بِأَحۡسَنِ مَا كَانُوا۟ یَعۡمَلُونَ
Whoever does good, whether male or female, and is a believer, We will surely bless them with a good life, and We will certainly reward them according to the best of their deeds(النحل: 97)
The Sahabiyat (Women Companions) were the noble women who were the contemporaries of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). They were the pure, virtuous crusaders of Islam, and were honored during the very lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with the prediction that they would live forever in Paradise in the hereafter.
