Imam Shafi thought so much of her that he stated in his would that he wanted his funeral procession to pass by her home - and when it passed by her home she prayed the funeral prayer.

I named my daughter after this Saint, her full name was Nafeesa Taahira - A rare lady of purity.

im actually surprised that u wrote abt her, because they never mention this lady alot, so when i started reading ur series on lady personalities the first thing that came to my mind was, i wonder if she will write abt Sayidina Nafeesa Taahira.
Where did u get the info from?
Insha Allah oneday i would like to take my daughter to Egypt to visit her grave

Abu Nafeesa

I'm doing a series on Nabi (saw)'s companions and family so as to learn and educate my readers.

Inshallah Aameen to your Dua'a.
