Ibtihaj Muhammad Was Named Best Female Fencer of the World

En Garde! Taking to the fencing stage is Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first ever female American Muslim fencer in the world. What’s more is her extraordinary success as the world’s 10th swords women, whilst also being named the world’s best female fencer. Muhammad has set no boundaries to her success, continuously finding she is winning multiple awards and medals throughout 2015.


Ibtihaj Muhammad is, for many of us, an example of success; whatever she does, she does to the best of her ability and even better. Her success is significant, and so is her relationship with her family and siblings. Muhammad manages everything with such capability, that it almost seems effortless. That is also why she has been listed in our Top 10 Muslim Women of 2015!
