The Women Scholars in Islam (Al-Muhaddithaat) - FREE LIVE ONLINE

Al-Muhaddithaat - The Women Scholars in Islam
Plus Extended QnA Session

Sunday at 4pm - Cambridge and Live Online Worldwide

This is a rare opportunity to have a glimpse of the often neglected legacy of female scholarship in Islam. Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi will be giving talk at the Cambridge Mosque I'tikaf Programme on this topic at 4pm on Sunday.

Shaykh Akram Nadwi completed a monumental 57-volume work on the lives of female scholars of Hadith in Islamic History. He has covered over 8500 female scholars from the time of the Prophet (SAW) until today. This is one of Shaykh Akram's passionate subjects and it will be a priviledge to listen to him.
Everyone is welcome to attend (free of charge) either in person at the Cambridge Mosque or Live Online via Livestream.

"Of all the scholars I have had the opportunity to study with, I have found Shaikh Akram Nadwi to be the closest, in knowledge, manners and teaching, to how I would imagine some of the great Hadith scholars of the past would have been. He has a vast knowledge of Qur'an, Hadith and Fiqh, a down-to-earth, humble, approachable style, and great teaching ability. His classes are not just beneficial from a learning perspective, but also to marvel at the awe-inspiring wealth of knowledge of our scholars masha Allah. His 57 volume work going through the biographies of some 8,500 women scholars of Hadith is a monumental endeavour. The mere fact of its existence can be a major talking point in discussion with Muslims and non-Muslims, and is almost a stand-alone proof of Islam's unparalleled wealth of female scholarship." - Dr Omar Mahroo, Cambridge/London

Explanation of rare wisdom and reflections of Imam Ibn Al-Jawzi based on his book Seyed Al-Khatir  on psychology, self-criticism and self-rectification. The second part of this session is the study of the noble and pious people of the past to learn from their example and piety. The stories are extracted from Siyar a`lam al-nubala' (The Lives of Noble Figures) of Imam Al-Dhahabi.

"Shaykh Mohammad Akram Nadwi is a great asset to the Muslims in the UK and his 57 volume work on al-Muhaddithaat (The Women Scholars of Islam) is no doubt going to be a lasting legacy of this great man. I had the blessed opportunity of spending a day with him recently; he is one of those few individuals who in a short period of time can change your entire thinking. May Allah bless the brothers and sisters in Cambridge and those in Oxford who organise and help the Shaykh in his works." - Nasar Ishfaq, Manchester
