Trailer | Upheld by Allah: Women in the Qur’an

We’ve heard about the lives of prophets and their families in the Holy Qur’an, and we’ve been moved by their strength, patience, and wisdom. It’s natural, then, to wonder about what the great women of their time were experiencing. What were their perspectives, struggles, and challenges?

The lives of incredible women are also shared in the Qur’an. Allah has preserved their stories so that we can learn from their courage, belief, and determination. Propelled by their hope and trust in Allah, these women of faith birthed cities, saved their families, ruled kingdoms, and stood against oppression.

Join Ustadha Lobna Mulla in an all-new series to immerse yourself in the stories of these incredible women, reflect on how their faith can inspire your own, and how you, too, can be upheld by Allah.
