I got this message from a WhatsApp group that I’m in:
“It is with heartbreak that I inform you that 108 year old, Shaykha Bahiyyah from Morocco has passed away. She was from the greatest female scholars on the planet. She memorised the Qur’an, Bukhari, the Muwatta, mastered the Maliki school and taught thousands whilst being blind. May Allah grant her jannah.”
SubhanAllah! What an inspiration! I’d love to learn more about her and I hope to update this post when I do InShaAllah.
