Sayyidah Nafisah bint Hasan bin Zayd bin Hasan bin ‘Ali radiyallahu ‘anhum

 

She is from the progeny of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam because she is the granddaughter of Zayd who is the grandson of ‘Ali radiyallahu ‘anhu. She was born in Makkah in the year 145 A. H. She was brought up in ‘ibadah. When Imam Shafi‘î went to Egypt, he used to visit her regularly.

Lesson: O women! Her knowledge and piety was the reason for such a great Imam to visit her. You should also acquire knowledge of the Dîn, practice upon it, and thereby attain piety and greatness.
