Elham al-Qasimi recently traded her traditional long dress - common in her native United Arab Emirates - for a puffy parka in a quest to become the first Arab woman to reach the North Pole.

The trip was unsupported and unassisted, meaning no motorised equipment was used and there were no resupplies along the way.

Al-Qasimi narrated her experience to Al Jazeera.

Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Here is a more in depth interview with Sr. Elham with Riz Khan. In it she talks about her upbringing, her inspiration, how she told her dad about her plan and how she wants to be remembered.
