In this Lecture, Vivienne Stacey explores why learning about Muhammad’s wives is essential for Muslims. The prophet’s wives have served as an example for Muslim women throughout Islamic history. These lectures were given at Columbia International University in partnership with the Zwemer Center for Muslim Studies. The Zwemer Center was founded in 1979 and exists to offer comprehensive courses on Islam, facilitate research, foster dialogues, offer seminars, conduct training, and provide resources for effective witness and ministry among Muslims. We also have a course study guide for these lectures that you might find helpful.
