The pearl of the Quraysh tribe

2016 Dec 25


The book called “The pearl of the Quraysh tribe” tells about Amina, the Prophet Muhammad’s mother. She was born in Medina and was the daughter of Wahb ibn Abdumanaf, the leader of the Banu Zuhra clan of the Quraysh tribe. She was the most beautiful and educated among the Qurayshi women, and excelled all of them in sincere worshipping to God. She occupies a special place in the history of Islam. She was granted an honour that no other woman had received: she became the mother of the last Prophet, who was sent as a mercy to the worlds…
