Strongest grandmother in the world lives in the Dagestani village of Sultan Yangiyurt, IslamDag.ru reports. 78-year-old Sakinat Hanapieva did not know that her achievements have long been listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Sakinat lives very modestly, she doesn’t have her own house, so she moved to the home of her daughter and son in law.
Grandmother lifts and throws up kettle bells, twists metal objects and tears thousand pages directories. But it is not only her talent.

The Qur’an is indeed a miracle that has withstood the test of time; not a single letter in it has changed over 14 centuries. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims memorize and preserve it in their hearts. It contains amazing scientific facts confirmed much later after their revelation. Allah, the Exalted, promised to protect and preserve it. He says, “Surely We have revealed the Reminder, and We will most surely be its Guardian.” (Qur’an, 15:9)

When you think of the hijab, you probably don't think "political". Or "independent". Or "empowered". Feminist? Certainly not – feminism is far better known for burnt bras and slut-walks than headscarves.
There is much misunderstanding about how women relate to their hijab. Some, of course, choose the headcover for religious reasons, others for culture or even fashion.
Khawala Bint Al Azwar - heroine of Islam. By Ma'n Abul Husn
There is not an Arab city that does not have a school carrying the name of Khawala Bint Al Azwar, the extraordinary woman who was so contemporary of the early years of Islam. Most of what history tells us about her childhood and environment is quite vague, but provides rich information about her courage that had most likely played a role in strengthening the new religion.
