The Sahabiyat or Sahaba were the exalted ladies associated with the Prophet Mohammad and were propagating Islam with him. They not only devoted themselves to Islam but they also boasted of socio-political and educational achievements. They became female icons of wisdom, acumen, courage, resilience and loyalty. Their sacrifices apparently earned them a promised place in Paradise. Their exemplary tales of glory have come down the ages and have inspired parents to name their newborn girls after them.
