  1. A prophet orders woman to prostrate herself before her husband!


    From their interceptions about our prophet's (peace be upon him) speech which in their belief did not give woman her rights


    His saying:( "If I were to order anyone to prostrate himself before another, I would have ordered a woman to prostrate herself before her husband
    Narrated by Abu-Hurira
    Jami` at-Tirmidhi > The Book on Suckling -
    [At-Tirmidhi]



    They said :what a lack of respect to woman to be ordered to prostrate herself before her husband?!!



    Reply to this misconception

    First:


    Their belief and saying that this Hadith did not give woman her right(wasting her rights) is a clear unawareness, because there is no oppression for woman's right in this Hadith
    But we find a call to woman to be honest to her husband, and invoking her by his rights, because he tired and suffered a lot to make her happy whether in spending or anything else, Is this reminding by husband's rights will oppress woman and waste her rights…?!!!

    Mubarkfory said:
    His saying (I would have ordered a woman to prostrate herself before her husband)
    Because of husband's great favor
    which wife could not thank, and this is an overstatement to declare that wife must obey her husband, we prostrate only before Allah and we must not do that for anybody else even husbands
    Al-Shokany said after he mentioned some Ahadith which have the same meaning of Hadith Abu-Huraira
    Those Ahadith which declare the prophet's saying if it was allowed to prostrate before a human I'll order woman to prostrate before her husband are strength each other
  1. Second:

    Reply to their question what a lack of respect to woman to be ordered to prostrate herself before her husband?!!

    I said : there is no order or permission in this Hadith to let woman prostrate herself before her husband, The Hadith says:
    If I were to order anyone to prostrate himself before another, I would have ordered a woman to prostrate herself before her husband

    And I'm asking here : where is the prophet's order to woman to prostrate herself before her husband?!!

    The answer: there is no order in it , moreover it is prohibited in our religion to prostrate to anyone except Allah

    There is overstatement in this Hadith to invoke women to obey her husband and declare his great rights and favor upon his wife, her duty is to obey him

    Also the condition (if) in Arabic links two sentences , if the first sentence does not happen the second sentence will never happen (the prophet here never orders anybody to prostrate himself before anybody else except to Allah, so the second sentence of this Hadith'll never happen(I would have ordered a woman to prostrate herself before her husband ))

    Moreover we find that both of Al-Tirmizy and Ibn Maga mentioned this hadith in the chapter of husband's rights not chapter of prostration to husband, because they did not understand that from the hadith as the cavilers did…….!
