Women of Islam - 1


Nusayba bint Ka'b Al-Ansariyah (Arabia, unknown-634 C.E.)

Nusayba was of one of the first advocates for the rights of Muslim women.
Notably, she asked the Prophet Muhammad,
"Why does God only address men (in the Quran)?"
Soon after this exchange, the Prophet received a revelation in  Chapter 33, Verse 35
that mentions women can attain every quality to which men have access.
The verse also conclusively settled that women stand on the same spiritual level as men.
She was viewed as a visionary who transcended her own generation.
