    18 – Umm Salama – The Knowledgable Women’s Rights Activist

    Umm Salama and her husband  Abdullah ibn Abdul-Asad were of the first people to accept Islam after Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) starting receiving revelation. When the news reached the Quraysh of them accepting Islam, they began to persecute them very harshly. They stayed committed to their new faith, and remained steadfast. As the persecution continued they were unable to worship Allah without fearing harm. So along with a group of Muslims, they were given permission  to migrate to Abyssinia where they could worship Allah without fear of harm. Even though they were granted safety in Abyssinia, Umm Salama and her husband longed to return to Makka to be near the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). The family was separated on their attempts to migrate to Madina. Abdullah was able to migrate. After some time they were united. After the battle of Uhud Abdullah died. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) preposed to Umm Salama. She told the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) that she was a very jealous person. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) made du'a to rid her of her jealously  and it was answered.

    15 – Tufayl ibn ‘Amr al-Dawsi – Led His Tribe to Faith

    15 – Tufayl ibn ‘Amr al-Dawsi – Led His Tribe to Faith

    Tufayl ibn 'Amr al-Dawsi was known in Makka as a leader, for his keen interest in poetry, and to be very generous. He was the chief of the tribe of Daws. He was not only a leader, but his poetry was like magic to the ears. After Tufayl heard the words of Allah, he commented that they were like no words he had ever heard, and he accepted Islam. A light emanated from him after accepting Islam. He immediately called his tribe to Islam after accepting Islam himself. His tribe rejected Islam harshly, and in fact, increased in their improprieties. Tufayl asked the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) to pray for them. Tufayl returned to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) with 80 families having accepted Islam.
