Authored by Sh. Mahmood Ahmad Ghadanfar, this book entitled ‘Great Women of Islam..’ is a compilation of stories of the Mothers of the Believers and 16 other Sahābiyāt (f. companions) who were given the glad tidings of Paradise in this life by the Prophet (SAW). In these stories, there are lessons for believing men and women in all times and places. The Sahābiyāt, contrary to what is usually believed, were active in society engaging in religion, politics, business and other realms and were a great aid in the spreading of Islam and beneficial knowledge.

This book was originally written in Urdu (titled- Sahābiyāt Mubashshirāt) and was later translated into the English language by sister Jamila Muhammad Qawi and published by the Darussalam publications.
