Sayedaty Ep. 5: Nusayba bint Kaab

Nusayba bint Kaab was a warrior who shattered many glass ceilings, was admired by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ for her courage and strength, and played a role of definitely clarifying the position of a woman in Islam. She even inspired the revelation of a verse in the Quran as a response to a bold question she asked the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Get to know this fierce companion in this week’s episode of Sayedaty.
