What students are saying:


"Ustadha Safia gave extensive coverage of different topics related to women's rights in a very comprehensive but simple way! Ma sha Allah she explains the concepts very well! And the Q&A option is really good as well as it brings out some extra knowledge related to the topic!"


"I loved the details. I had never heard of that book [the instructor mentioned], let alone all the things I learnt that were written in it. I now have much deeper understanding of how women aren't just submissive beings meant to exist for men."


"Ma shaa Allah this Qur’an class was phenomenal! Sister Safiya gave us the basis for why some things are said about women within the ummah, i.e. women should wear niqab and women should stay at home etc. Then she gave rebuttals that weren’t her opinion, but facts backed by sound ahadith. She gave me a whole new perspective on Islam. This class made me feel empowered and informed about my choices."


"Teacher Safiya has an easy way of explaining the stories and Islamic teachings to support the point of what she wants to get across. It shows that she cares about she teachings of the extra time she takes to answer all our questions and concerns. It open my eyes to realise the importance of women in Islam and how their power affected Islam either in a negative or positive way. Now, I know the important role a women needs to play."

“I gained new knowledge that will benefit me as a Muslim woman. The PowerPoint we got is really going to help to refresh what was discussed. I liked gaining more knowledge about the Muslim women’s rights and in general about role the Muslim woman’s have.”


“We talked about a lot of essential subjects that all Muslims need to know, and not only women. The ustadha made it so easy to understand. Never mind if there is some divergences between scholars, this course was clear. It was very peaceful to hear these lectures. Now I'm a bit sad because it's over.”


“My favorite part was discussing women's dress and if she can be seen and heard.This class will change the negative thoughts people have about women in our religion. Now I love our religion more, and am confident to be a muslimah.”


“My favourite part was this talk about our beloved Nabi Mohammed (s) and how he used treat them with love and respect. Subhan'Allah. Alhamdulilla I have learnt lot a good about women. The way woman should be, stay in/out door and dress. I believe its all to do with being protective around unknown mens basically.”


“I really gained knowledge on lots of stuff that I didn’t know before, especially the rulings on hijab and marriage stuff. It's really made me clear my mind about the doubts I used to have.”


“I have more clarity about my rights and a greater love and understanding for Islam. I am happy and excited to learn more.”


“It cleared alot of misconceptions and helped me know alot of new things and differentiate between what the culture says VS what Islam says. I love my religion more now and it has motivated me to study for myself, rather than believing what people say.”


“I loved hearing the explanations behind the rules and the alternate understandings. I have a much more nuanced understanding of the topic, now. It's great!”


“It was interesting to know about the women in islam, and how culture affects us and that some 'rulings' are not from islam. My understanding of women's rights is much better now.”


“The instructor was intelligent, articulate, and inspiring. I gained knowledge about women in Islam with this course, and I am more confident, empowered and proud to be a Muslim woman.”
