Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) began his mission with the support of a women. And it was women that continued to be major contributors to the spread of Islam and the building of the Muslim community. Rather than always see men and women as opposing forces the prophet taught us to see how our differences compliment one another and are in fact a great strength starting with the smallest of societies, marriage, to the greatest of empires spanning the globe.
