Dowra Sharings: 2 - A Visit to Shaykha Sultana

Before going out I didn't expect to learn so much about women.

Al-Shaykha Sultana bint 'Ali al-Zubaydy was well known for her piety, knowledge and teachings in the 15th Century in Hadramaut.

Only info online is here.

She wasn't from the family of the Prophet Alaislam but because of her love for the Prophet she was chosen as an awliya.

She would send Salawat (Praises) to the Prophet Alaislam in abundance and was an extremely modest woman. It is said that she was one of the few who would see the Messenger in her dreams so much. Whenever she had a query she would get an answer quite immediately.


Upon death she was 17/18 years old. It is customary to visit her on the last Monday of every (lunar) month.

oh thank you for posting this, we went to visit her, but we didn't have much information about her other than she was a wali.
 
No problemo -
these were notes from Ustada M who gave us a briefing the night before. I have some additional pointers which I will email your way - give me a week or so :-)
 
Hi Daughter of Adam,what do you mean by Ustada ,please?
