Coffee Time With Shaykhas






Click here to watch ShaykhaFest 2013 on YouTube.

Did you know that some of the greatest Islamic scholars such as Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Imam Ibn al-Jawzi, Shaykh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, Imam al-Dhahabi, Imam Ibn al-Qayyim, Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali and many other great Imams and scholars had female teachers? Even though it is not widely known, thousands of female scholars have enriched the Islamic tradition through out history. Shaykha Fest is intended to honor the legacy of female Islamic scholarship and draw attention to contemporary female scholars. At Shaykha Fest we will embark on an exciting journey into the past and learn from contemporary female scholars, thinkers and activists from around the world in a nurturing, non-cultural and inclusive atmosphere. Shaykha Fest in essence is a celebration of life, love and sisterhood. Come and join with us so we can revive this tradition together.

Shaykha Fest will return in 2015 Inshaallah:



“Through life’s rush
never forget compassion”
