A selection of Ahadith from Kanzul ‘Ummal

Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Allah loves the woman who has love and affection for her husband and safeguards herself from other men.”

Lesson: This means that she should not consider it below her dignity to express her love and adulation for her husband as is the habit of certain proud and haughty women.

Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Women are also parts of men.”

Lesson: It is a well-known fact that Hawwa was created from Adam ‘alayhimas salam. The meaning of this Hadith is that rules that are applicable to men are applicable to women as well, except for certain specific rules.

Based on this, even if their virtues are not mentioned separately, then too there is nothing to complain about. The virtues for good deeds which are mentioned with regard to men are applicable to women as well.

Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Allah has prescribed jealousy for women and jihad for men. If a woman exercises patience with iman in the hope for reward on account of a certain action which may cause her to be jealous, such as her husband marrying a second wife, then she will receive the reward of a martyr.”

Lesson: Look at the great reward that a woman receives on account of a little self-control and patience as opposed to the man who has to undergo so many difficulties to receive that reward (i.e. the reward of a martyr).

Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “By doing your wife’s work you will receive the reward of charity.”

Lesson: Look at how the Shari‘ah has shown you the ways of providing comfort to women. It has promised to reward you in such a way that every Muslim will provide comfort to his wife in the hope for this reward.

Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The best woman is the one whom when her husband looks at her he is pleased with her, when he orders her to do something she obeys him, and she does not displease him by doing anything contrary regarding his wealth and honour.”
