In the time of the Prophet (s), 700 women were teaching Shari`ah (Islamic law), after the time of the Prophet (s), after he left dunya; they were teaching Shari`ah that they learned from Prophet (s) or from their husbands who were very close to the Prophet (s) and they were lady saints, strive to be like them”
