The world’s first known university was founded by a Muslim woman!
More than a thousand years ago, Fatima Al-Fihri established the University of al-Qarawiyyin in Fez, Morocco. Naming it after her hometown, Sister Fatima funded and oversaw the construction of this institution in 859 – more than 200 years before the University of Oxford was created!
The university includes an impressive library and immense mosque, and it offers courses on Qur’anic and Islamic Studies as well as mathematics, medicine and astronomy. Masha’Allah, this university is still open, and we pray Sister Fatima will be rewarded abundantly for her efforts.
The war in Yemen has turned a poor country into a humanitarian catastrophe. Half of all health facilities are damaged or unable to function and food prices have soared. Millions of Yemenis have little or no access to clean water.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said of the people of Yemen, ‘…indeed they are from me and I am from them’ [Haithami]. The people of Yemen are beloved to our Prophet (saw), and they are beloved to Allah (swt). Now they are asking for our help. We need your support to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni families.
