Great Women of IslamÂ is one of the series that turns theÂ spotlight onto the outstanding women around the ProphetÂ Muhammad (PBUH).Â This is a film about timely revelations andÂ tiny revolutions, as we witness the momentous events thatÂ influenced the role of women in Islam and the women who wereÂ behind them. Here we meet two women who embodied the spirit of faith and courage during the Prophets time: Nusaybah BintÂ Kaab (Umm Amarah) Al-Ansariyyah and Asma Bint Abi BakrÂ As-Siddiq. Their stories are examples of the empowering quality of the message of the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), as we witnessÂ their bravery in the face of the ruling Quraysh through theirÂ unwavering dedication to the young faith. Their stories serve to demonstrate that every person has a role to play in forming a goodÂ and just society, and that no effort is too small, no heart too weak (or old, or corrupt!), and no task too daunting. These inspiringÂ women were honored and revered by the Prophet himself - aÂ testament to the equality and importance of women in Islam, andÂ they deserve to be remembered as role models, today and always..
