Assalamu alaykunna wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh
It may be that ukht Um Juwairiyah allready posted this beautiful admonition before, though I believe its worth reading twice or thrice anyhow..
Excerpt from part 2:
"´Na'am, and then also from the second generation, or from the generation of the muhaddithaat (fem pl. of muhaddith) that came after the generation of the companions, we wanted to mention the narrator Faatimah Bint Al Mundhir (radi Allaahu anha). This particular story should be an encouragement for the women. Her husband was Hishaam ibn 'Urwah (radi Allaahu anhu) who was also a scholar of hadeeth and an narrator. If you look in the biography of Hishaam ibn 'Urwah you will find that from his teachers and from those whom he took knowledge from was actually his wife Faatimah Bint Al Mundhir. If you look into the biography of Hishaam, if you look at those whom he narrated from, those who were from his shuyook (shaykh pl.), you will find his wife, Faatimah bint Al Mundhir."
"This is a tremendous affair yaa akhawaat. This shows the importance or this show the stress that must be laid upon the women learning the Deen of Allaah Ta'aalaa, until the point where you look at your Salaf from the women, and you see the likes of Faatimah Bint Al Mundhir who was the shaykhah of her husband Hishaam ibni 'Urwah." http://www.freewebs.com/muslimaatinfo/Examplesofthefemalescholarspart1.pdf http://www.freewebs.com/muslimaatinfo/Examplesofthefemalescholarspart2.pdf http://www.muslimaat.info/doc/Examples_of_the_Female_Scholars_Conclusion2.pdf
May Allaah make this encouraging women leading examples in our lifes and grant us fiqh in His deen.
