Course Description: 

The Mothers of the Believers (Ummahatul Mu'mineen), are women chosen by Allah (swt) for His Messenger (s) and his Ummah. Not only are they the wives of Prophet Muhammad (s), but they also contributed to their societies and left great legacies for the betterment of Muslims across the centuries.

In this course, we will journey through hadith of the Prophet (s) about these amazing women, hear their stories, and learn about their lives and the unique challenges they each faced. We will learn to emulate their unique qualities of loyalty, contentment, joy, confidence, and the knowledge that the best way to overcome adversity is through perseverance and faith.

From the lives of these unique and diverse women, we will glean valuable lessons and meet role models on our path towards Allah (swt), derive personal lessons, and engage in thought-provoking exercises to walk a path closer to that of the women who were closest to Prophet Muhammad (s).
