Something to bring a smile, and a source of pride to the sisters, and role-models:
Imaam Adh-Dhahabee said:
“And I have not known of any woman [narrator] who has been accused, or who they [the Imaams of Hadeeth] have abandoned [narrating from her]!!!”
Mizaanul ‘itidaal : 7/465
Imaam As-Suyootee said:
“ Whoever has been declared Dhaif [weak in her narrations] from them [the women]; then it is [only] because of Jahaalah [being unknown].”
Tadreebu-r-Raawee : 1/322
This is a great thing considering the tens of thousands of male narrators who are declared weak, fabricators, e.t.c
And also this a reminder of the glorious status of Islam, how the women used to memorize and transmit hadeeth [while observing appropriate hijaab & manners of speech].
Imaam Dhahabi alone had more than 500 female shaykhs whom he narrated from !
Wake up O Muslim women… the Ummah is in need … give precedence to your deen
