“Because you’re a woman… can’t lead… can’t speak publicly… can’t join the conversation…”

That’s what our sisters keep hearing…

...and while some have believed this narrative...

...many more sisters have proven that not only CAN and WILL they…

...but the rest need to keep up.

That’s why AlMaghrib Institute is proud to introduce this ground-breaking seminar...

I Am Her

Life & Leadership Lessons

from Women in the Quran

Taught by Ustadha Taimiyyah Zubair

Man vs Woman

It’s true, women aren’t like men. We think, talk, and act differently.

That’s actually why women are vital to the conversation, the Dawah scene, activism, and the public sphere.

In this seminar, you will experience:

  • Female role models in light of Quran
  • Rising above female misconceptions and limitations
  • Encouragement to lead lives of influence and contribution
  • Core empowerment from the Quran
  • Leadership that creates change both in public and at home

Who are the Women of the Quran

Not many have considered the deep leadership lessons for women in the Quran.

This may be a novel notion for some, but leadership in Dawah, activism and family are taught through the stories of:

  • The mother of Maryam
  • Maryam herself
  • Asiyah, the wife of the Pharoah
  • The mother, sister and wife of Musa
  • The mothers of the believers
  • Khawlah bint Tha’labah of Surat Mujadilah
  • Bilqis, the Queen of Sheba

The Quran is indeed a source of empowerment for women!

Student will experience the Quran as a source of motivation and spiritual guide, in shaa Allah.


Why is this Seminar for You?

This is a one-day, workshop-style seminar with these objectives:

  • Transform the woman’s mindset and beliefs towards her own potential and value.
  • Empower women to rise above and seek new heights in both the public sphere and at home.
