Women in the Quran
Allah (swt) refers to many women in the Quran. Join Ustadha Farhat Ahmed Shamsi to learn more about the incredible women mentioned in the Quran.
In this course, Ustadha Farhat Ahmad Shamsi will discuss the women mentioned in the Quran and the way they affected the world around them, and how we can bring the lessons we learn into our lives.
From the instructor:
"Far from being reticent and oppressed, the women mentioned by God in the Qur'an were the main protagonists of life-changing events in human history. Let's discover and learn from these inspiring, independent women Allah chose to mention in the Quran!"
Hawwa, Hajrah, Maryam, Asiya, Aisha... Allah mentions many women in the Qur'an.
What ties them together? What sets them apart?
How did they approach their challenges and difficulties?
In this course, we will find out who they were, and what they did, and how they are intrinsically connected, each with their own struggles and victories.
In this course you can continue to learn more about the Quran’s perspective of women in Islam.

What students are saying:
“Subhallah. The webinar beautifully highlighted how vital and pivotal role women have played in defining Islam as we know it. Each session shed a new light at the verses I've been going through since childhood. The class has got me thinking deeply about what femininity means in Islam and in life general. I discussed the content with my family and it started so many constructive discussions. The course has undoubtedly brought me closer to the Quran and with what it means to be a muslim woman in the modern world. Shukran.”Alvira

By the Grace of Allah she was guided to a course of knowledge, which centered on the language and understanding of every single ayah and surah in the Divine Revelation. A personally challenging journey began in a turbulent time for Muslims in America. Her journey became a passion and source of fulfillment; she had never imagined teaching anyone else what she was learning, except perhaps sharing it with her family.
One day a friend requested Farhat Ahmed to teach her whatever she was learning, and then the student also became a teacher. Her adult study circles grew as she also brought in Islamic educational reforms in her local community and introduced Qur’an tafseer classes for high school and college students. Having studied under highly regarded world-renowned scholars, Farhat Ahmed continues as a student of knowledge, instructor and public speaker with students here in the U.S.A. and abroad.
