Al-Khansaa is an online women's magazine launched in 2004 by a Saudi branch of al-Qaeda.[1]

The magazine claims to have been founded by Saudi leader Abd-al-Aziz al-Muqrin shortly before his death.[2] It offers advice on first aid for wounded family members, how to raise children to believe in Jihad and physical training for women to prepare for combat.[2]

The magazine is named after Al-Khansaa, an Arab poet and a contemporary of Muhammad.
