The oldest academic degree-granting university existing today founded by muslim woman in Fes, Morocco
Twelve hundred years ago, a young, wealthy and well educated woman named Fatima Al-Fihiyya (also known as Fatima Al-Fihri) inherited a big fortune from her businessman father. Her interest was neither in shoes or handbags, nor in any celebrity lifestyle, neither to woe a man for marriage, nor in any of the stereotypes that are usually associated with women. Fatima had a vision that was cultivated and allowed to grow because of the Islamic society she lived in and encouraged her. Her vision did not remain a dream but was accomplished and the results can still be seen today. In 859 CE, Fatima Al-Fihriyya founded the oldest academic degree-granting university existing today, the University of Al-Qarawiyyin in Fes, Morocco.
The Al-Qarawiyyin Mosque is one of the largest mosques in Africa and the oldest true university in the world. Al-Qarawiyyin is the perfect example of how Islam combines the spiritual with education and that Islam is not separate from life’s affairs. This is not only an example of how education and religion merge in this small corner of the globe, but it sheds light on the esteemed role that women played in the Islamic community - an aspect of Islam that is often misunderstood.
Note: There are older universities founded on the world from times of Babylonia, Greece, Syria, Arabia, India and China - but, they can not apply as the oldest ones - since they do not exist today anymore.

La Belle Dame sans Merci (“The Beautiful Lady Without Mercy” ) is a ballad written by the English poet John Keats. It exists in two versions, with minor differences between them. The original was written by Keats in 1819. He used the title of a 15th century poem by Alain Chartier, though the plots of the two poems are different. The poem is considered an English classic, stereotypical to other of Keats’ works. It avoids simplicity of interpretation despite simplicity of structure. At only a short twelve stanzas, of only four lines each, with a simple ABCB rhyme scheme, the poem is nonetheless full of enigmas, and has been the subject of numerous interpretations. (x)
i love how men mock women for being overemotional and then lose their shit over a team losing an over-glorified game of fetch
Because all men like watching sports, obviously, right? You just did what you hate men doing, putting generalizations on a whole gender.
i know i did
irritating, isn’t it?
