Fatima Inspires 2019

Fatima Inspires -  2019


The World Federation is pleased to announce the return of our Fatima Inspires initiative. Together, let us appreciate the inspiring women in our community,  where we take the time to celebrate women. 

Our Fatima Inspires initiative gives our community an opportunity to highlight these female role models and females heroes in honour of the Lady of Light, Sayyida Fatima (sa). We are very privileged to have amazing examples of strong and inspiring female role models in our community.


The World Federation have had a fantastic response to this initiative in the past, and we are keen to continue appreciating the women in our community who do so much, but whose efforts sometimes go unacknowledged. This is our fifth year running this initiative and we know there are still so many women who deserve to be recognised for their contribution.

Further Information

Sayyida Fatima (sa) was given many titles throughout her lifetime by her father. Here is one of the titles.


Why Fatima Inspires?

Sayyida Fatima (sa) was given many titles in her life, one of these was 'Sayyidatu Nisa il A’lameen' meaning 'the leader of the women of the worlds'. Her father, the Holy Prophet (saw), gave her this title as she was and still is a perfect role model, for both men and women. The Fatima Inspires initiative is in honour of our role model and guiding light.
