Women Companions (رضي الله عنهن) zeal for knowledge
The womenfolk once sent their delegate to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) to tell him:
O Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah, Men have dominated your attention to the exclusion of us women. So, appoint for us a day in which we can come to you and learn from you some of what Allah had taught you.
Sahih Bukhari and Muslim
