    Forty Hadiths for Women

    By Muhammad bin Shaker Ash-Sharif

    In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and Peace and Blessings be upon Muhammad, His Apostle, the constant bearer of good tidings and the constant warner to the whole of mankind.

    The following is a group of Hadiths concerned with some Islamic regulations for women. I collected and divided into chapters. It includes only forty-three hadiths, simple and easy to memorize. I followed the steps of many previous compilers who collected forty hadiths in various subjects. All hadiths are certain and accurate, i.e. mentioned in Sahih Muslim and/or Al Bukhari or agreed upon by the prominent hadith scholars.

    I pray to Allah, the High and Almighty, to accept this modest work from his humble worshipper, forgive all my sins and mistakes, guide my intention, and let me die on good deeds.


    Chapter 1 : Woman’s Pray at Home is better than Going to Mosque
    Narrated by Ibn 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said: “Do not prevent women (wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, etc) from (praying at) mosques. Yet, their prayer at home is better (for them).”

Once she goes out Satan beautifies her in the eyes of men (to seduce her as well as them). At her home, she is the closest (to the face) of her Lord.”

    Chapter 4 : Woman should take the Permission of Her Husband before Going outNarrated by Ibn Umar: One of the wives of Umar (bin Al-Khattab) used to offer the Fajr and the 'Isha' prayer in congregation in the Mosque. She was asked why she had come out for the prayer as she knew that Umar disliked it, and he has great “ghaira" (self-respect). She replied, "What prevents him from stopping me from this act?" The other replied, "The statement of Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h): 'Do not stop Allah's women-slave from going to Allah’s Mosques. "

    Chapter 5: Prohibition on Women Regarding Putting Perfumes when Going out

    Narrated by Abu Mousa Al Ash’ari: Allah's Apostle said: “If a woman uses perfume and passes the people so that they may get its odour, she is so-and-so, meaning severe remarks. (i.e. about to commit adultery).”

    Chapter 10 : Women should perform Tawaf without mingling with men
    Narrated by Ibn Jarieh said ‘Ata had told him when Ibn Hashim prevented women from performing Tawaf with men: how could he prevent them while the wives of the Prophet performed Tawaf with men?” I (i.e. Ibn Jarieh) said: before or after (the verse of) hijab (was revealed)? He said: “Upon my life, after hijab.” “How could they intermix with men?” I asked. “They didn’t,” he replied. “’Aisha used to perform Tawaf at a dividing space from men; she didn’t intermingle with them.”

    Chapter 11 : Men shouldn’t enter freely into private places where foreign women are

    Chapter 12 : Women should have their own learning venues Narrated by Abu Huraira: A group of women came to Allah’s Prophet and said to him: “We cannot attend your majlis (gathering) of men, so, appoint us a day to come to you (alone).” He said: “We will meet at the house of so and so.” He went to them on the specified date and place. Among what he said at that day to the present women was “any woman who rises up three children for the sake of Allah will enter paradise.” One woman said: “And two?” “And two,” the Prophet said.

    Chapter 25 : Wives have great duty towards their husbands

    Narrated by ‘Abullah bin Abi Awfa: Allah’s Apostle Said, “Had I ordered a person to prostrate to someone rather than Allah, I would have ordered the wife to prostrate to her husband.

If he asks her (for sexual intercourse) while she is on a camel (what means, being busy), she should not disobey him.”

The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Why is it so?" The Prophet replied, "Because of their ungratefulness." It was asked whether they are ungrateful to Allah. The Prophet said, "They are ungrateful to their companions of life (husbands) and ungrateful to good deeds. If you are benevolent to one of them throughout the life and if she sees anything (undesirable) in you, she will say, 'I never had any good from you.' "

    Chapter 28 : Woman should not obey her husband if ordered to do a sin
    Narrated by 'Aisha: An Ansari woman (From the Supportes) gave her daughter in marriage and the hair of the latter started falling out. The Ansari women came to the Prophet and mentioned that to him and said, "Her (my daughter's) husband suggested that I should let her wear false hair." The Prophet said, "No, (don't do that) for Allah sends His curses upon such ladies who lengthen their hair artificially."

He said, "A virgin or a matron?" I replied, "A matron." he said, "Why not a virgin, so that you might play with her and she with you, and you might amuse her and she amuse you." I said, " 'Abdullah (my father) died and left girls, and I dislike to marry a girl like them, so I married a lady (matron) so that she may look after them." On that the Prophet said, "May Allah bless you," or "That is good."

    Chapter 31: Husband should provide for wife and childrenNarrated by 'Aisha : Hind (bint 'Utba) said, "O Allah's Apostle! Abu Sufyan is a miser. Is there any harm if I take of his property what will cover me and my children's needs?" The Prophet said, "Take (according to your needs) in a reasonable manner."

    Chapter 32 : Prohibition of changing Allah’s creations unnecessarily Narrated by 'Abdullah: Allah has cursed those women who practise tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those who remove their face hairs, and those who create a space between their teeth artificially to look beautiful, and women changing the features created by Allah. Why then should I not curse those whom the Prophet has cursed? And that is in Allah's Book. i.e. His Saying: 'And what the Apostle gives you take it and what he forbids you abstain (from it).' (59.7)

    Chapter 33 : Woman should not wear tight clothes

    Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "Two are the types of the denizens of Hell whom I did not see: people having flogs like the tails of the ox with them and they would be beating people, and the women who would be dressed but appear to be naked, who would be inclined (to evil) and make their husbands incline towards it.

    In another narration Mu'awiya said one day : Should I tell you the evil make-up. Allah's Apostle forbade cheating. It was during that time that a person came with a staff and there was a cloth on its head, whereupon Mu'awiya said: Behold, that is cheating. Qutada (the sub-narrator) said: This implies how women artificially increase their hair with the help of rags.

    Chapter 35 : Woman should not lie and adopt falsehood
    Narrated by A’sha that a woman came to Allah's Apostle) and said: I have a co-wife. Is there any harm for me if I give her the false impression (of getting something from my husband which he has not in fact given me)? Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The one who creates such a (false impression) of receiving what one has not been given is like one who wears the garment of falsehood.

    Chapter 36 : Women should not wear high shoes Narrated by Abu Sa’eed Al Khudri, Allah’s Apostle said :” A Jewish women used to put two wooden legs to lengthen her shoes, so that no one could recognise her, for she was very short.” The Prophet forbade this action that is a kind of cheating others.

    The one who disobeys Allah and his Messenger (PBUH) can
    only harm himself and cannot in any way harm Allah. The
    Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

    "كُلُّ أُمّتي يَدخُلونَ الجنَّةَ إلاَّ من أبى" فقالوا: يا رسولَ الله من يأبى؟ قال: "من
    أطاعني دخلَ الجنّة ومن عصاني فقد أبى"

    "All of my followers will enter Aj-Jannah (Heaven) except those who
    refuse." They said, "O Allah's Messenger! Who will refuse? "
    He said, "Whoever obeys me will enter Aj-Jannah, and
    whoever disobeys me is the one who refuses (to enter it)."(1)
    It is reported that Mu'awiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) gave a sermon in Humss (Syria) and mentioned that the Prophet (PBUH) prohibited seven things and that he (PBUH) named Tabar'roj as one of
    them(2). Abdullah bin Mas'oud (may allah be pleased with him) reported that theProphet (PBUH) "used to dislike ten kinds of behavior and he (Abdullah) mentioned amongst them: "Tabar'roj by means of
    displaying beautification in an improper place."( 3) Imam As-
    Siyouti, may Allah's mercy be upon him said: "Tabar'roj by
    displaying beautification is showing off to strangers and this is
    disliked. This is the explanation of "an improper place." It is
    not so if the beautification is done for the husband.

    (1) Saheeh Al-Bukhari (English-Arabic, Dar Al-Arabia, Publ. Beirut,
    Lebanon), V.9, hadeeth # 384, p.284
    (2) Narrated by Imam Ahmed in his Mussnad 4/101-Arabic.
    (3) Narrated by An-Nissa'ee in his " Sunan "Arabic 8/141.

    Umay'mah, the daughter of Ruqay'ah came to the Messenger
    of Allah to acknowledge the message of Islam and that he
    (PBUH) is the Messenger of Allah (THE ALMIGHTY). The Prophet
    (PBUH) told her: "I give my acknowledgment that you must
    not set partners to worship besides Allah and that you don't
    steal or commit fornication and adultery, that you don't kill
    your child, that you don't commit any falsehood before your
    hands and between your legs, that you don't wail, and that
    you don't make Tabar'roj like that of Jahilyeeyah(4). It is clear
    that the Prophet (PBUH) associated Tabar'roj with grave
    destructive sins.
    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ
    (4) Narrated by Imam Ahmed in his "Mussnad" 2/196. The scholar Ahmed
    Shaker, may Allah's Mercy be upon him, said : " Its chain of narration is
    good". He also said that Ibin Khatheer in his "Tafseer :Explanation of the
    Qur'an 8: 327-328" mentioned this hadeeth saying, "its chain of narration
    is good" and he narrated it to At-Tirmidhi, An-Nissa'ee and Ibin Majah.


    The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

    "سيَكُونُ في آخِر أُمَّتي نساءٌ كاسِياتٌ عارياتٌ، على رُؤوسِهِنَّ كأسنِمَةِ البُختِ،
    إلعَنوهُنّ فإنَّهُنَّ ملعونات"
    "There shall be, in the latter part of my nation, women who
    are dressed but (in fact) naked, on their heads are humps like
    those of Bukht (one kind of camels), curse them for they are
    surely cursed."(5)

    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ
    (5) At-Tabarani narrated this hadeeth in "Al-Mu'jam As-Sagheer" p.232 and
    Al-Albani said it Saheeh as in his book "The Hijab" p.56. As-Siyouti
    narrated on behalf of Ibin Abdul'barr that: "The Prophet (PBUH) intended
    women who put on light clothes that shows off and shapes the body
    descriptions. In reality they are naked although they have clothes on them!".


    The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

    "صِنفان من أهلِ النَّار لم أرَهُما: قومٌ معَهُم سِياطٌ كأذناب البَقر يضرِبونَ بها
    النَّاس، ونِساءٌ كاسِياتٌ عارِياتٌ، مُميلاتٌ، رُؤوسَهُنَّ كأسنِمَةِ البُختِ المائِلة، لا
    يَدْخُلنِ الجنَّةَ، ولا يَجِدْنَ ريحَها، وإنَّ ريحَها لَيوجَدُ من مَسيرةِ كذا وكذا"

    Of the people of Hell there are two types whom I have never
    seen, the one possessing whips like the tail of an ox and they
    flog people with them. The second one, women who would be
    naked in spite of their being dressed, who are seduced (to
    wrong paths) and seduce others with their hair high like
    humps. These women would not get into Aj-Jannah and they
    would not perceive its odor, although its fragrance can be
    perceived from such and such distance.( 6)
    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ
    (6) Saheeh Muslim (English-Arabic, Published by Dar Al-Arabia, Beirut.
    Lebanon) V. 4 hadeeth # 6840 p. 1486.


    It is narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said:
    "مَثَلُ الرَّافِلَةِ في الزَّينَةِ في غيرِ أهلِها، كَمَثَلِ ظُلْمَةٍ يوم القيامة، لا نور لها"

    The parable of a woman who moves with slow sweeping
    motion, trailing her beautified clothes, performing not for her
    husband, is like darkness on the Day of Judgment; she has (or
    comes with) no light,"( 7)

    "خَيْرُ نِسائِكُم الوَدود، الوَلُود، المُواتِية، المُواسية، إذا اتَّقيْنَ الله، وشَرّ نِسائِكُم
    المُتَبَرَّجات المًتَخَيَّلات، وهُنَّ المُنافِقات، لا يَدخُلِ الجنَّةَ مِنْهُنَّ إلاَّ مِثلُ الغُرابِ

    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ

    (7) Narrated by Imam At-Tirmidhi in his "Sunan" # 1167. Al-Albani said it
    is a weak hadeeth (See Al-Albani's collection "Ad-Da'eefah" (Collection
    of Weak Hadeeths) # 1800. Abu Bakr Bin Arabi, may Allah's Mercy be
    upon him, said: "At-Tirmidhi narrated this hadeeth and said it is weak but
    its meaning is correct because the "enjoyment" in disobedience is in fact
    torture and suffering……". The meaning indicates that this type of
    women will come on the Day of Judgment Blackened in darkness as if
    she physically originated from darkness. In contrast, what appears to be
    difficult and painful in performance of obedient acts, is a true enjoyment
    because of the reward awaiting those who obey Allah and His Messenger
    e.g. the odor of the mouth of a fasting Muslim may not be pleasant in
    this world. To Allah, however, it is better than the odor of Musk because
    the Muslim had obeyed Allah and performed what is due upon him from
    fasting. Similarly the woman wearing her Hijab may be looked upon as
    "reactionary, old fashioned, a walking tent! etc." She is the winner on the
    Day of Judgment and those who mock her put themselves on a dangerous
    road. They may be subjected to the wrath of Allah.


    The Prophet (PBUH) said:

    "The best of your women is the affectionate , the fertile (in
    productivity), the propitious (favorable), the consultative if
    they fear Allah. the Most evil of your women are the
    Mutabar'rijat (those who do Tabar'roj), the Mutakhayelat
    (who strut/the Almightyagger), and they are the hypocrite ones. Those
    who enter Aj-Jannah are like the Cough Crow."( 8) The Cough
    Crow has a red beak and red legs. This is an expression of
    metonymy indicating that few women enter Heaven because
    this kind of crow is rare.
    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ
    (8) Reported by Al-Baihaqi in "As-Sunan" V.7 p.82. Also reported by
    Abu Na'eem in "Al-Hiliyah" V. 8, p. 376 with a reference to Abdullah
    bin Masoud (MAY ALLAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM) as the narrator. See also Al-Albani's "Chain of
    Authentic Hadeeths - Arabic" # 1849 and 632.


    The Prophet (PBUH) said:

    "أَيُّمَا امرأةٍ وَضَعَت ثِيابَها في غيرِ بيتِ زَوجِها، فقد هتَكَت سِترَ ما بينها وبين الله عزَّ وجَلَّ"

    "Any woman who takes off her clothes in other than her
    husbands home (to show off for an unlawful purpose), has
    broken the shield between her and Allah."( 9) Imam Al-
    Man'nawi, may Allah have Mercy upon him, said: "the saying
    of the Prophet (PBUH) ' any woman who takes off her clothes
    in other than her husbands home' means showing off her
    beauty to strangers by taking off her shield of clothes. She
    "has broken the shield between her and Allah" because Allah
    had said:

    } ‏ يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا يُوَارِي
    سَوْآتِكُمْ وَرِيشًا وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَى ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ ‏‏{
    الآية [الأعراف،26]

    "O children of Adam! We have
    bestowed raiment upon 'you to cover
    yourselves (screen your private parts
    etc.) and as an adornment. But the
    raiment of righteousness, that is
    better."(Qur'an 7:26)

    So if a woman does not fear Allah and uncover her private
    parts then she is breaking the shield between her and Allah,
    Most High. And because she uncovered and dishonored
    herself and committed a treason with her husband, Allah will
    uncover her shield, she will be in a scandal... "
    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ
    (9) Narrated by Imam Ahmed and Al-Hakim in his "Mustadrek" (Arabic)
    V.4, p.288 who said it is Saheeh (authentic) according to the conditions
    of Muslim and Al-Bukhari, and Ad-Dahabi agreed as well as Ibin Majah.


    The woman is A'wrah, All of her body is not to be shown
    To wear the clothes that show off and shapes her body
    features is disgraceful and Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) orders His slaves to
    stay away from disgraceful sins:

    } ‏ وَإِذَا فَعَلُوا فَاحِشَةً قَالُوا وَجَدْنَا عَلَيْهَا آبَاءَنَا وَاللَّهُ
    أَمَرَنَا بِهَا قُلْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَأْمُرُ بِالْفَحْشَاءِ أَتَقُولُونَ عَلَى
    اللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ ‏‏{ [الأعراف،28]

    "When they commit a Fahisha (evil
    deed, going round the Ka'ba in naked
    state as in the times of Jahilyeeyah (Pre Islamic Paganism),
    every kind of unlawful sexual
    intercourse etc.), they say: 'We found
    our fathers doing it and Allah has
    commanded us of it.' Say: "Nay, Allah
    never commands of Fahisha. Do you
    say of Allah what you know not?"
    (Qur'an 7:28)

    It is Shaytan (Satan) who orders such disgraceful sins. Allah
    (THE ALMIGHTY) says:

    } ‏ الشَّيْطَانُ يَعِدُكُمُ الْفَقْرَ وَيَأْمُرُكُمْ بِالْفَحْشَاءِ ‏‏{
    الآية [البقرة، 268]

    "Shaytan threatens you with poverty
    and orders you to commit sins. "(Qur'an 2: 268)

    The Mutabar'rigah is a sinful virus that spreads disgraceful
    sins amongst the Muslim society. Allah, the Most High, says:

    } ‏ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَ أَن تَشِيعَ الفَاحِشَةُ فِي الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا
    لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتُمْ
    لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ ‏‏{ [النور،19]

    "Verily, those who like, that (the crime
    of) illegal sexual intercourse should be
    propagated among those who believe,
    they will have a painful torment in this
    world and in the Hereafter. And Allah
    knows and you know not." (Qur'an 24:19)

    Tabar'roj is a leading cause for the spread of Zina (illegal
    sexual intercourse).


    The story of Adam and his wife demonstrates how the enemy
    of Allah, Satan, was so covetous to incite them to show their
    private parts in order to spread evil and disgraceful sins. It
    also shows that the Tabar'roj of women is a primary goal for
    Shaytan to achieve. Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) says:

    } ‏ يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا يُوَارِي
    سَوْآتِكُمْ وَرِيشًا وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَى ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ ‏‏{ الآية [الأعراف،26]

    "O children of Adam! We have
    bestowed raiment upon you to cover
    yourselves (screen your private parts
    etc.) and as an adornment. But the
    raiment of righteousness, that is
    better." (Qur'an 7:26)

    It is clear that Satan is the one who established the call for
    Tabar'roj and show off and that he is the leader of those "
    leaders " who call for the "liberation of women". Satan is the
    "Imam" of everyone who obeys and follows him in
    disobedience to Allah (The Most Merciful), especially those
    Mutabar'rijat who harm the Muslims and deceive their youth.
    The Prophet ( PBUH) said:

    ما تَرَكْتً بَعدي فتنةً هيَ أضَرُ على الرجالِ من النِساء""

    "I have not left after me any (chance) of turmoil more harmful
    to men than the harm done to the men because of women.(10)

    Adam forgot, made a mistake, repented and asked forgiveness
    from Allah and Allah the Oft-Forgiving accepted Adam's
    repentance. The struggle between Adam's off-springs and
    Shaytan continues. The devil still whispers to drive us , men
    and women, to disobey Allah and follow sin. There is no
    safeguard except in the return to Allah in good faith and
    repentance, remembering Allah, asking His help to overcome
    lust and desire.
    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ

    (10) Saheeh Muslim (English translation; published by Dar Al-Arabia) V. 4, hadeeth # 6603, p. 1431


    Jews have an important role in the destruction of nations
    through the Fitna. (seduction/temptation) of women. The
    spread of Tabar'roj is an effective weapon of their widespread
    establishments. They have an extensive experience in this
    field. One should look around only to see who runs Hollywood
    and famous Houses of "Fashions" and "Magazines" as well as
    the world of advertisement!. R-rated, X-rated movies and
    clothes are widespread. In fact the Prophet ( PBUH) said:
    "فاتَّقُوا الُدنيا، واتَّقوا النساء، فإنَّ أولَ فتنةِ بني إسرائيل كانت في النساء"

    "Watch out for this worldly life (safeguard yourselves from
    its temptations); avoid the allurement of women: verily, the
    first trial for the people of Israel was caused by women.

    Their Books also testify to this fact. In the Third Chapter of
    Isaiah (16, 17):

    "The Lord said: "Because the daughters of Zion are haughty
    and walk with necks outstretched ogling and mincing as they
    go, their anklets tinkling with every step. The Lord shall cover
    the scalps of Zion's daughters with scabs, and the Lord shall
    bare their heads." Furthermore, "On that day the Lord will do
    away with the finery of the anklets, sunbursts, and crescents;
    the pendants, bracelets, and veils; the headdresses, bangles,
    cinctures, perfume boxes, and amulets; the signet rings, and
    the rose rings; the court dresses, wraps, cloaks, and purses; the
    mirrors,.." (Isaiah, 3, 18-23; The New American Bible).

    Although the Prophet (PBUH) warned against mimicking the
    Kuffar (non-believers) and their ways, especially the ways of
    women. Many Muslims do not abide by this warning (11). This
    is a testimony for the prophecy of the Prophet (PBUH) who said:

    "لتَتَّبِعَنَّ سَنَنَ من كانَ قبلَكُم شبراً بِشبر وذراعاً بذراع، حتَّى لو دَخَلُوا جُحرَ ضَبٍ
    لتَبعتُموهُم، قيل: اليهود والنصارى؟ قال: فمن؟"

    "You would tread the same path as was trodden by those
    before you inch by inch and step by step so that if they had
    entered into the hole of a Dhab (a desert lizard), you would
    follow them in this also. We said: Allah's Messenger, do you
    mean Jews and Christians (by your words)" those before
    you"? he said: Who else (than those two religious groups).(12)

    The similarity of those women who disobey Allah and his
    Messenger to the Jews is very evident because their response
    to Allah's commands was similar to that of the Jews:

    } ‏ قالوا سَمِعنا وَعَصَينا ‏‏{ الآية [البقرة،93]

    "We have heard and disobeyed"
    (Qur'an 2: 93)

    This is unlike the response of the believing women:

    } ‏ وقالوا سَمِعنا وَأطَعنا ‏‏{ الآية [البقرة، 285]

    "We hear and we obey." (Qur'an 2: 285)

    They remember the saying of Allah:

    } ‏ ‏وَمَنْ يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَى
    وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّى وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ
    وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا ‏‏{ [النساء، 115]

    "And whoever contradicts and opposes
    the Messenger (Muhammad-PBUH)
    after the right path has been shown
    clearly to him, and follows other than
    the believers' way, We shall keep him
    in the path he has chosen and burn
    him in Hell; what an evil destination!"
    (Qur'an 4: 115)

    ــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ__ ________
    (11) It is sad to see many who dislike the Kuffar in certain ways imitate
    them in their ways of living thinking that their materialistic progress
    could not be achieved except in acting, dressing, eating, jogging,
    sleeping them. The true Muslim, however, remembers that any
    progress must meet the purpose for our presence on earth: all action must
    be narrated to the worship of Allah. The Kuffar have taken some of the
    means which Allah had created and used it for worldly gains. We are
    ordered to make the means adhere to the purpose of our creation: the
    worship of Allah Alone and thus uses the means to defend Islam and
    Muslims and secure the needs of life as well. Why should some of us
    dress the way Allah ordered and some does not? Should we choose
    Allah's way or the Kuffar way? All the success is measured by one
    criterion: does it meet the pleasure of Allah or not?
    (12) A famous and Saheeh hadeeth reported by Al-Bukhari, Muslim and
    others. The text here is as reported in Saheeh Muslim V. 4, hadeeth #
    6448, p.1403


    Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) says:
    } ‏ وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ
    الْأُولَى‏‏{ [الأحزاب،33]

    "And stay in your houses and do not
    display yourselves like that of the times
    of ignorance" (Qur'an 33:33)

    The Prophet (PBUH) described the times of ignorance as
    filthy and wicked and ordered us to reject it. Allah (THE ALMIGHTY)
    described the Prophet (PBUH) as :

    } ‏ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الخَبَائِثَ ‏‏{
    الآية [الأعراف،157]

    "He allows them as lawful At-Tayyibat
    (all i.e. good and lawful as regards
    things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods,
    etc.), and prohibits them as unlawful
    Al-Khaba'ith (all i.e. evil and unlawful
    as regard things, deeds, beliefs,
    persons, foods, etc.)" (Qur'an 7: 157)

    The call to bring about the times of Jahilyeeyah is similar to
    the call for Tabar'roj, both of which are wicked ways that the
    Messenger (PBUH) made unlawful. He (PBUH) said:

    "كُلٌّ شيءٍ من أمر الجاهلِيَّةِ موضُوعٌ تحتَ قَدَمَيَّ"

    "Verily! every matter of Jahilyeeyah is under my feet!"(13)

    Tabar'roj and all forms of Jahilyeeyah such as false pride and
    haughtiness, ill thoughts about Allah, call for falsehood,
    setting up rivals with Allah, ruling by other than the laws of
    Islam, usury, etc., are all included.
    ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــ

    (13) Narrated by Abu Dawoud, At-Tirmidhi, Ibin Majah, and Ad-Darime'i
    and Imam Ahmed.


    To reveal and expose are natural behaviors of animals.
    Whenever man inclines towards such behaviors he starts his
    decline to a level lower than the level of manhood which Allah
    had bestowed upon him. Allah bestowed a natural inclination
    (Fitrah) towards covering, preservation, and safeguarding
    modesty. To consider the acts of display, exposition, and
    uncovering as acts of beauty reflects a corruption to the Fitrah
    and a degeneration in taste and a sign of decadence and

    The progress of man's civility is linked to his/her covering of
    the body. The Hijab cover is fitting to the instinct of Gheerah
    which draws its strength from the soul. The so called
    "liberation from the chains of covering" is an instinct that
    draws its strength from lust which incites Tabar'roj and
    mixing of the sexes. The one who is satisfied with this latter
    instinct must sacrifice the first one in order to silence the
    voice of the innate Gheerah in his heart in return for the
    "enjoyment" of Tabar'roj and mixing. From this we
    understand that the Tabar'roj is a sign of corruption of Fitrah,
    lack of bashfulness, Gheerah, and insensitivity.


    Anyone who carefully examines the Islamic Texts (Qur'an and
    Sunnah) and the lessons of history, becomes convinced about
    the evils of Tabar'roj and its harm, both on religious and
    worldly matters especially when it is associated with the
    mixing of sexes. Some of its underlying consequences are:

    r The Competition Amongst the Displaying Women in
    Showing Off Their Beauty{tc \l 3 "A \) The Competition
    Amongst the Displaying Women in Showing Off Their
    Beauty"}. This is seduction, and it leads to the spoiling of
    morality and leaves women as merchandise articles exhibited
    for anyone to look at.

    r The Corruption of the Morality of Men, Especially
    the Youth and Those in Adolescence. It pushes them to
    commit various kinds of sins(14).

    r The Destruction of Family Ties and Causing a Lack
    of Trust Between Family Members and the Spread of

    r The Commercial Abuse of Women In The World of
    Advertisement, Entertainment And Other Areas As Well.

    r Doing Harm to Women by Declaring Their Ill
    Intentions and Evil Conscience Thus Rendering Her
    Venerable To Harm By The Wicked And The Insolent.

    r The Spread of Diseases.

    The Prophet (PBUH) said:

    "لم تظهَرِ الفاحِشَةُ في قومٍ قط حتى يُعلنوا بها إلاَّ فشا فيهُم الطاعُون والأوجاع التي
    لم تَكُن في أسلافِهِم الذين مَضَوْا"

    "Sins didn't spread in any particular nation until they openly
    conduct it and as a result, plague and other illnesses that
    were not present among their predecessors became
    widespread amongst them."(15)

    r Facilitates The Sin of Zina (Fornication) By The Eye.

    The Prophet (PBUH) said:

    "العَيْنانِ زِناهُما النَّظَر"
    "The adultery of the eyes is the lustful look. ."(16)

    r Tabar'roj Makes it Difficult to Lower The Gaze.

    r Justifiably Brings Down Allah's Punishment
    The punishment of Allah is more severe than atomic bombs
    and earthquakes. Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) says:

    } ‏ وَإِذَا أَرَدْنَا أَنْ نُهْلِكَ قَرْيَةً أَمَرْنَا مُتْرَفِيهَا فَفَسَقُوا
    فِيهَا فَحَقَّ عَلَيْهَا الْقَوْلُ فَدَمَّرْنَاهَا تَدْمِيرًا ‏‏{ [الإسراء،16]

    "And when We(17) decide to destroy a
    town (population), We (first) send a
    definite order (to obey Allah and be
    righteous) to those among them [or We
    (first) increase in number those of its
    Population] who are given the good
    things in this life. Then, they transgress
    therein, and thus the word (of torment)
    is justified against it (them). Then We
    destroy it with complete destruction."
    (Qur'an 17: 16)

    The Prophet (PBUH) said:

    "إنَّ النَّاسَ إذا رأوا المًنكَرَ فَلَم يُغيَّروهً أوشك أن يَعُمَّهُم الله بِعَذاب"

    JazzzakAllahu Khayr sister in faith. Sorry, this is the way I am :

    { ٱلرِّجَالُ قَوَّٰمُونَ عَلَى ٱلنِّسَآءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ ٱللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ وَبِمَآ أَنْفَقُواْ مِنْ أَمْوَٰلِهِمْ فَٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتُ قَٰنِتَٰتٌ حَٰفِظَٰتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُ وَٱلَّٰتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَٱهْجُرُوهُنَّ فِي ٱلْمَضَاجِعِ وَٱضْرِبُوهُنَّ فَإِنْ أَطَعْنَكُمْ فَلاَ تَبْغُواْ عَلَيْهِنَّ سَبِيلاً إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيّاً كَبِيراً }
    Men are in charge of, they have authority over, women, disciplining them and keeping them in check, because of that with which God has preferred the one over the other, that is, because God has given them the advantage over women, in knowledge, reason, authority and otherwise, and because of what they expend, on them [the women], of their property. Therefore righteous women, among them, are obedient, to their husbands, guarding in the unseen, that is, [guarding] their private parts and otherwise during their spouses’ absence, because of what God has guarded, for them, when He enjoined their male spouses to look after them well. And those you fear may be rebellious, disobedient to you, when such signs appear, admonish them, make them fear God, and share not beds with them, retire to other beds if they manifest such disobedience, and strike them, but not violently, if they refuse to desist [from their rebellion] after leaving them [in separate beds]. If they then obey you, in what is desired from them, do not seek a way against them, a reason to strike them unjustly. God is ever High, Great, so beware of Him, lest He punish you for treating them unjustly.

    Boxing doesn’t = to strength, boxing requires more than just “strength”

    Not all men have bigger muscle or bigger skeletons you might have a small frame, but not all women do.

    Please forgive me sister. You say wise things:

    Boxing doesn’t = to strength, boxing requires more than just “strength”
    Reminds me of something Resool, sall-Allahu alayhi wa salah, had said... You know, there are things in Islam that do not suit my brain and InshAllah Allah, azz wa jall, helps me understand them one day. All we can really do is not want to believe the opposite of what Islam says. Everything is a test. I have failed a few days ago, with something that could have gotten me executed..

    Sister, I wasn't emotional. I was a bit rude. I do press on some things...these are one of them.

    What I intended to advise you with is to clear your doubts regarding women being vieweddifferently than men in Islam.

    To end it this way:
    Opinions are not open in religion when religion teaches something.

    I can bring you evidence of what I say, both Islamic and doctoral, I just do not want to lower your eman judgeing your views. Harsh? Please forgive me.

    I am understanding your point, yes some women out there can develop more strength in something a man is expected to be stronger in, however, how many situations as those do we encounter? There are all kinds of things that happen, but the general and most common situations, I was speaking of.

    I will not go into details because tons of them exist but are very, very rare.

    P.S. I really do not give opinions.

    Lol @ better brain. that study isn’t the be all and end all.
    Search the forum on related subject. If you wish, I will provide it for you [the links], unles syou would like to spend time learning stuff about salah under my signature.

    Assalamu Alaykum wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh

    Sister, it would be better for you to start your individual topic on this subject and have someone knowledgeable respond to it so as to clear your doubts. I am not understanding why is it a problem that women should be educated with that from Allah, azz wa jall, and His Mesenger, sall-ALlahu alayhi wa salam? The topic explained their rights and prohibitions. Again, there are things stricter on females than males.

    Is it that you do not like discipline?
    Men and women have different roles that don’t mean women are weaker.
    Maybe if she fills herself with steroids. Sister, how many women do you see boxing and doing such activities? Men have sronger, bigger skeleton, muscules, and they have a better brain:

    Mental health is an area where men appear not to fare well. For a start, men are more than twice as likely to be affected by schizophrenia. 'Up to 40 per cent more men are diagnosed with schizophrenia than women - and their symptoms tend to be more severe and treatment less effective,' explains Jane Harris of the charity Rethink.
    'There are lots of competing theories about what causes schizophrenia, but most experts think it is down to a combination of nature and nurture.'
    There is evidence for a genetic link to schizophrenia, and it's thought certain behaviours may 'switch on' this gene or genes. As Harris says: 'Men are more likely to do things that put them at risk of developing schizophrenia - such as smoking cannabis. Medical research shows that heavy cannabis users are up to four times more likely to develop psychosis.'
    Boys are also more likely to be diagnosed with the developmental conditions autism and Asperger's syndrome. The Autism Society says boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with the condition than girls.
    This may be because they are exposed to higher levels of testosterone before birth, affecting their brain development, according to research by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen from the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge.
    But not all conditions affecting the brain are more concentrated in the male section of the population. 'Women get postnatal depression, and the menopause can be a trigger for depression,' says Marjorie Wallace, founder of mental health charity Sane. Depression is more common in women - one in four (three million) women will require treatment for depression at some time, compared with one in ten men.
    This higher rate of depression means that, when it comes to mental health, more women are affected overall.

    Sister Rasema walaikum asalam warahmatallah wabarakatu

    Sure some of those hadith may direct to men, the title is specific to women.

    I disagree with some remarks you make.

    All of us must be obedient to Allah.

    Men and women have different roles that don’t mean women are weaker.

    There are some women who are physically stronger than men, there are women who are psychologically more capable and stable.

    Not all men or not all women are the same.

    ....There is the hadeeth on divorce.

    Sister Sarah, Assalamu Alaykum wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh

    Some of those hadeeths are directed to men, and some of them apply to men like the one about changing the creation of Allah, azz wa jall.

    1. Yes, there are things which are stricter on women than are on men.
    2. Yes, men have rights over women, wives specifically.
    3. Yes, a woman must be obedient.
    4. Yes, a husband or father etc.. Are the final authorities of family decisions.

    In Islam, men and women are not treated or viewed the same. Women are weaker than men physically and psychologically.

    A woman can achieve more than men and she can be better in the eyed of Allah than some men. How? Those who have more taqwa are superior. However, men are superior in the ways I have named.

    1. There are things stricter on men than are on women [Jihad, spending on their women folk, to be just to his women, etc..].
    2. Women have some rights over their husbands.
    3. We all have to be obedient. Slaves of Allah, azz wa jall, are obedient as long as everything they do is obedience to the Creator, and if it involves disobedience to Him, then there is no obedience from our part [like having relations when impure for example].
    4. A husband is her authority or mahrams. A wife is authority to children. And so on.

    I came across the following fatwa that fits in well with Point 33 above:

    Women wearing tight-fitting clothes

    Shaykh Muhammed ibn 'Abdillaah as-Subayyal - Imaam and Khateeb, Al-Masjid al-Haraam

    Fataawa wa Mukhtaarah - Pages 562-563


    What is the ruling regarding a woman wearing tight fitted clothing infront of (other) women and those men who are her mahram?


    It is not befitting for the woman to wear tight fitting clothes which make apparent the size of the parts (of her body) in front of her relatives or amongst (other) women, (since) this is contrary to maintaining her chasteness. As for (doing so only) in front of her husband, then there is no harm in that.

    So it is obligatory that the dress of the Muslim woman be loose fitting and not tight, so as not to accentuate any part of her body. This is because the aim of the garment is to cover (the body) and (thereby) prevent fitnah; And this is (certainly) not achieved except by (wearing) loose fitting and flowing (clothes).

    As for tight fitting (clothes) - even if it hid the colour of the skin, it still accentuates the size of her body or part of it, thereby creating a desirable sight in the eyes of the men; And therein is corruption and an invitation (to evil) which is apparent. So it is obligatory that it be loose fitting.

    And it has been narrated by Usaamah ibn Zayd (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhumaa) who said: The Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) clothed me with a thick white linen garment which had been gifted to him by Dahiyyah al-Kalbee, so I clothed my wife with it, and he said: "What is the matter with you, you do not wear the thick white linen garment? So I said: I have clothed my wife with it, so he said: "Be sure that she wears a ghilaalah underneath it, for indeed I fear it (the thick white linen garment) accentuating her body and bones." - Transmitted by ad-Dhiyaa al-Maqdasee in "al-Ahaadeeth al-Mukhtaarah", and Ahmad, and al-Bayhaqee in "as-Sunan al-Kubraa", and al-Albaanee declared it hasan in "Jilbaab al-Mar.ah al-Muslimah".

    And a ghilaalah is a fine textured and light shirt-like gown which is worn underneath a garment to prevent accentuating her body.

    And with Allaah lies All Success.
