Great Women of Islam┬áis one of the series that turns the┬á spotlight onto the outstanding women around the Prophet┬á Muhammad (PBUH).┬á This is a film about timely revelations and┬á tiny revolutions, as we witness the momentous events that┬á influenced the role of women in Islam and the women who were┬á behind them. Here we meet two women who embodied the spirit of faith and courage during the Prophet's time:┬áNusaybah Bint┬á Ka'ab (Umm Amarah) Al-Ansariyyah┬áand┬áAsma' Bint Abi Bakr┬á As-Siddiq. Their stories are examples of the empowering quality of the message of the Prophet Muhammad┬á(P.B.U.H.), as we witness┬á their bravery in the face of the ruling Quraysh through their┬á unwavering dedication to the young faith. Their stories serve to demonstrate that every person has a role to play in forming a good┬á and just society, and that no effort is too small, no heart too weak (or old, or corrupt!), and no task too daunting. These inspiring┬á women were honored and revered by the Prophet himself - a┬á testament to the equality and importance of women in Islam, and┬á they deserve to be remembered as role models, today and always..
