"I’ve tried to worship Allah in every way, but I’ve never found a better one than sitting, debating other scholars." 
Umm al-Darda was a prominent jurist in Damascus in the seventh-century. She lectured in the male section of the mosque and her teachers included the caliph of Damascus. Umm al-Darda prayed shoulder to shoulder with men — a practice which is very rarely seen today — and issued a fatwa, which is still used today allowing women to pray in the same position as men.
