In the ۴th Goharshad World Prize, Eight Muslim women honored

The criteria included sacrifice and martyrdom, resistance and Islamic awakening, cultural and artistic trendsetting, endowment and charity.

Hawzah News Agency - (Mashhad - Iran) - The 4th Goharshad World Prize closing ceremony has been held in the Quds auditorium of the holy shrine, during which eight Iranian and foreign Muslim women were selected according to the eight criteria.

The criteria included sacrifice and martyrdom, resistance and Islamic awakening, cultural and artistic trendsetting, endowment and charity, medical and construction services, scientific, educational and research affairs and management and entrepreneurship.

“Today, Muslim women, are true advocates of Islamic society and in the fields of education, sacrifice and martyrdom, they move and work alongside men. They benefit from awakening and religious, political and social awareness by following the pure Muhammadi and Imam Khomeini thoughts,” Yasmin Hosnat, an Afghan woman said.

Referring to the fact that she attended the conference, representing all the oppressed people of Afghanistan, in particular the forbearing and heroine women of her country, she admitted that by receiving this prize, she calls herself the servant of Imam Reza (AS) and this position makes her responsibility more difficult and more sensitive.

“Definitely, recognizing hardworking and industrious women… empowers us to continue our path with more motivation and effort, because they were able to achieve this position by observing Islamic principles and all requirements of a Muslim woman,” Seyyedeh Azam Hosseini, the author of the book “Da” said.

She added that her book is so far reprinted 157 times and translated into five languages: English, Arabic, Urdu, Bosnian, and Turkish which reflects the interest of the people in the Sacred Defense and memoirs of the Iraq imposed war.

“Many Western countries have slogans for defending women’s rights or women’s freedom, but in practice, they violate the rights,” Seyyedeh Robab Zeidi from Lucknow, India, noted.

She said her activities include speaking to the seminary and university women, teaching religious sciences, teaching Quran to children, establishment of dormitories for female seminary students, holding mourning gatherings in Muharram and holding Quranic meetings, and added that she is thankful that Imam Reza (AS) has considered her worthy to receive the prize, which she sees it as a sign of Imam’s attention.

Fatima Haqirsadat, was another winner counted among the first to have PhD in the field of Nano-biotechnology saying, “A team from America and Netherlands who worked for cancer treatment, elected me to cooperate and my only condition to attend was keeping my hijab.”
