Introducing Our Sayedaty Series by Tesneem AlKiek

Since the beginning of time, women have made major contributions to society – not only in their roles as mothers and wives, but as philosophers, leaders, scholars, companions of the Prophet, teachers, scientists, and so much more. However, their achievements are all too often overlooked.

We are proud to announce our brand new video series, “Sayedaty”. The goal of this series is to honor the incredible women of our past and present, while inspiring YOU to contribute to society. Join Yaqeen Institute Fellow Tesneem Alkiek as she explores the stories and accomplishments of an important female figure and role model each week.
