Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)

woman inquired: “Are

woman inquired: “Are there others?” The Rasûl-i-ekrem answered: “If any woman pilfers from her husband’s property and gives it to someone else, Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân shall not accept that woman’s zakât or alms, unless she asks her husband to forgive her and he in his turn forgives her.” The woman said: “Are there others?” Thereupon the blessed Messenger of Allah stated: “If any woman swears at her husband or refuses to obey him, they will hang her by her tongue in the pit of Hell, and if any woman goes out and watches woman dancers and listens to musical instruments and spends a penny, all the twawâb which she has earned for her pious deeds since her childhood will be annihilated and the dresses she has been wearing will sue against her, saying, ‘She did not wear us on sacred days or when she was with her halâl (husband); she wore us at harâm places where she went.’ Thereupon Haqq ta’âlâ will declare: ‘I shall burn such women for a thousand years.’ ” [Hence also should we realize the bad aspects of the cinema, of the radio and television programs.] When the woman heard these answers she said: “Yâ Rasûlallah! I have never entered into marriage until now, nor will I ever.” This time the Rasûl-i-ekrem ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa salla’ graciously offered their explanation: “Yâ khâtûn (O you woman)! Let me inform you also about the blessings of marrying a man; listen! If a woman’s husband says to her, ‘May Allah bless you with His Grace,’ she will be better off than having worshipped for sixty years. And her giving her husband some water to drink is a more meritorious service than fasting for one year. If she makes a ghusl after a conjugal relationship with her husband, she will attain as much thawâb as if she performed Qurbân. If she does not play tricks on her halâl (husband), angels in heaven will make tasbîh [1] on her behalf. If she frolics with her husband, she will be more blessed than for having manumitted sixty slaves. If she protects her husband’s rizq and has mercy on her husband’s kith and kin and performs namâz five times daily and fasts (in Ramadân), it is more meritorious than visiting the Ka’ba a thousand times.” Fâtima-i- Zehrâ ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhâ’ (Rasûlullah’s blessed daughter, inquired: What will become of a woman if she hurts her halâl (husband)?” Thereupon the most blessed of all fathers stated: “If a woman refuses to obey her husband, the curse of Allah shall stay [1] To make tasbîh means to say, “Subhân-Allah,” which means, “I know Allah far from defects of any sort.” Making tasbîh yields plenty of thawâb (rewards in the Hereafter). – 248 –

upon her until she asks her husband to forgive her and he forgives her; if she shirks her conjugal duties she will lose all her thawâb; if she behaves haughtily towards her husband, she will become an object of Allâhu ta’âlâ’s rage; if she says to him, ‘Are you an officious meddler?’ or, ‘Have you ever been of any use to me?’, Allâhu ta’âlâ will make His blessing harâm to her. If she licked her husband’s blood with her tongue she would still have not paid her husband’s right. If her husband lets her go out without properly covering herself, a thousand sins will be recorded in her husband’s book of deeds for condoning her.” This will help to imagine the gravity of a woman’s sin for just going out without her husband’s permission! The Rasûl-i-ekrem ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “Yâ Fâtima! If Allâhu ta’âlâ had commanded human beings’ prostrating themselves before others, I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands.” Hadrat ’Âisha ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhâ’ narrates: I asked Rasûlullah to make a will for me. The blessed Messenger stated: “Yâ ’Âisha! I will make a will for you and you make that will to the women among my Umma! When people rise for judgment on the morrow: Questioning shall be made on îmân first. The second questioning shall be made on ablution and namâz. With women the third questioning shall be made on (the rights of) their husbands. If a man is patient with his wife’s petulance, Haqq ta’âlâ shall reward him with thawâb equal to that which was granted to Prophet Eyyûb (Job). And if a woman is patient with her husband’s cantankerousness, Allâhu ta’âlâ shall promote her to the grade of ’Âisha-i-Siddiqa.” If a man beats his wife I shall sue against him on the day of Judgment,” is another hadîth-i-sherîf uttered by the Rasûl-i-ekrem ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’. There are three reasons for which a man is permitted to beat his wife with the palm of his open hand or with an unknotted hankerchief: For ceasing from namâz or ghusl or for refusing to come to his bed or for going out without his permission. By no means is it permissible to beat her with a stick or to punch her with the fist or to kick her or to beat her with a knotted handkerchief or to hit her on the head or on the body. And she must never be beaten for other faults. She must be warned a couple of times. If she does correct herself, then she must be left to herself lest you should torment yourself. – 249 –
