Abdulhadi Alajmi

Dr. Abdulhadi Alajmi is the vice dean of the College of Arts and a professor of history at Kuwait University. His areas of interest include Umayyad history, the history of women in Islam, orientalism, and Arab and Islamic civilisations-and he has published on each. 

Lecture: Women in Islam as Portrayed in Biographical Sources 

The survey illustrates that exploring the beginnings of Islamic civilization proves that the time of the Prophet included the highest number of women appearing in biographical sources. This makes the Prophet's time the richest in the context of the number of women. That of course can be explained in light of the importance of women as transmitters of religious knowledge and as figures of sacred history in the Prophet's journey.
