Why You Need It
How can we say we are Muslimahs when we don't even know, and therefore love, the leading Muslimah in Jannah?
Sayyidah Fatima al-Zahra (RA), the beloved daughter of our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the best role model for us, and she is so because despite her short life span, encapsulated chastity, generosity, selflessness, dedication, patience and nobility - traits that all of us should strive to emulate and uphold as Muslimahs.
This Online Class will also go through extensively the co-relation between the significant moments of Sayyidah Fatima al-Zahra (RA)'s life and how those events shaped and groomed her into being the leader of the women in Jannah and how we can apply those lessons into our daily practice.
Getting to know Sayyidah Fatima al-Zahra (RA) puts into action our desire to be guided by her (RA), and to be guided by her means to be guided by the Prophet (SAW), which naturally means to be guided by Allah SWT.
"Sayyidatina Fatima al-Zahra: The Leader of the Women in Jannah" is a 4 weeks Online Course that covers one main and central theme per week. Every day starting October 29th, Aida and Fadhilah will release 1 Audio Lessons per day that will span between 30-45 minutes each.
The whole course will have a total of 20 Audio Lessons.
Even though Audio is the preferred medium, students will also be given full transcripts of each audio lesson should they prefer to read the content in accompaniment to the Audio lessons.
For students who prefers visual aids, a Video with slides of the main points of each Audio Lesson will also be made available.
Students will also be given an accompanying PDF Workbook each week with summary + notes of each lesson.
At the end of every Audio Lesson, Students are tasked and encouraged to carry out one actionable / “heart work” relating to what they've learned. This is crucial as the aim of this course is for all of us to put into practice what we've learned about Sayiddatina Fatima al-Zahra (RA).

What The Ladies Are Saying
A live weekly Q&A “hangout” Session with Aida will be held at the end of every week of the course where ladies can discuss / reflect and ask about anything related to the class. These live sessions, even though casual, will allow us to truly connect with each other whilst celebrating Ummina Zahra RA.
1) Will the Online Class be held live? Do we have to tune in at a certain time for the classes?
The Class is not time sensitive so there isn't a fixed time that you need to tune in.
We release the 5 classes for the week at 2.30PM Singapore time on Mondays, starting from the 29th of October, and we will also send an email every Friday for a quick check-in with the students.
We recommend listening to 1 Audio Lesson a day so that you will have ample time to reflect upon the content and carry out the task that we've set for each lesson but if you work better listening to a couple of Lessons at one sitting, that's absolutely fine as well!
The beauty of taking an Online Class is that you can work on it at your own time and at your own pace. You can pause, rewind, forward, re-start as many times as you want!
You will also have a choice of listening to the Audio Lessons or watching a Presentation Video with the main points highlighted on Slides or read the full transcript - so wether you are an audio, video, or an all-text kinda person, we've got you covered!
2) Can we download the content of the course so that we can listen to the audio lessons offline?
Of course! All of the content will be made available to download so that you can save it on to your computer / hard drive / phone for safekeeping and you can then have access to it forever (well, kinda forever!) and play it offline.
3) I don't understand how the Payment Plan works!
Ahhh! Happy to explain how it works.
The class amounts to $268 - which if you really divide it up among the 20 lessons is only $13 per lesson - but we are spacing it out and doing it in instalments over a period of 4 months as we've gotten a number of feedback from Sisters that the payment plan option helps them significantly - hence the $67 / month x 4 months!
So for example, if you sign up and register on the 15th of October, then our system will automatically deduct the second instalment on the 15th of November, then the third instalment on the15th of December and then the final instalment on the 15th of January. You don't even have to remember the dates - our system will do all the work for you!
4) Is your Course verified?
Alhamdulillah, all of our content has been checked and approved by an ARS-certified Ustazah from Singapore. At the end of the Course, we will also be sending out a full list of all the books / reading materials / resources that we’ve used as research.
5) I'm interested!! When does the registration end? And I don't have a Credit Card, can I pay via Ibanking / bank transfer?
Yay, Alhamdulillah!! So happy that you have decided to join us! :) The Registration ends on Tuesday, 23rd October, at 2359 HRS SG Time or as soon as we have filled up our slots, so I urge you to register soon as we are filling up pretty quickly Alhamdulillah!
If you do not have a working credit / debit card, you can do a bank transfer to our Singapore or Malaysia bank account. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you payment details in a jiffy!
