Mufti Menk speaks about the Sahaabiyyah (Female Companion): Khawlah Bint Tha'labah.
Khawla exemplified patience while standing firm in her beliefs. She persevered until she got the truth. She wanted to stand up for her rights and rights of women, while maintaining her love for her husband. She maintained her high standing through time, and people, including the stature of 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), the second caliph, paid attention to what she had to say.
