It is important for both our daughters and sons to be knowledgeable about the essential role of women in Islam. By encouraging our children to study pious women throughout history we help establish respect for women, encourage success among young girls, and provide exemplary models of piety and devotion for all. The Qur’an and Hadith cite numerous examples of women that are highly praised by Allah (swt). Make time to study these distinguished women with your kids. Know their historical accounts, pious character, and contributions to Islam.
