In The Name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most Kind

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. All hadiths are certain and accurate, i.e. mentioned in Sahih Muslim and/or Al Bukhari or agreed upon by the prominent hadith scholars.

The Entire Collection contains 40 Important Hadith For Women,I have divided in 4 parts.Each part contains 10 Imp. Hadiths . This is Part-1 contains 10 Imp Hadiths.

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).”

2 : Woman’s Freedom to Go out for their Needs

Narrated by ‘Aisha: Allah’s Apostle said: “You (women) have been allowed to go out for your needs.”

3 : Evils behind Unnecessary Socialising of Unveiled Women

Narrated by Ibn Mas’ud: Allah’s Apostle said: “(Unveiled) woman is a cause of corruption. 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.”

4 : Woman should take the Permission of Her Husband before Going out

Narrated 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. “

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).”

6 : Prohibition on Women regarding showing her Charms when Going out

Narrated by Fudhalah ibn ‘Ubaid: Allah’s Apostle said: “Three persons are doomed …. Among them a woman whose husband is not present and provides for her; yet she shows her charms to (foreign) men.”

7 : Women should not travel without Mahram

Narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas: Allah’s Apostle said: “A woman should not travel except with a Dhu-Mahram (her husband or a man with whom that woman cannot marry at all according to the Islamic Jurisprudence).” A man got up and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! I intend to go to such and such an army and my wife wants to perform Hajj.” The Prophet said (to him), “Go along with her (to Hajj).”

8 : Women should have their own Entrance to the Mosque

Narrated by Ibn ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle said: “Should we leave this entrance (at the Mosque, i.e. Al Masjid AL Nabawi ) only for women to enter.” The sub-narrator, Ibn Nafie’ said: “Ibn ‘Umar did not use this entrance (after that) until his death.”

9 : Women should not walk in the middle of the street

Narrated by Abi Ausaid Al Ansari: While Allah’s Apostle was going out of the mosque he saw all men and women in the road. He told the women: “You should wait behind. You should not walk in the middle of the road.” The narrator said: “women afterwards used to walk so close to the wall so that their dresses often stick to it.”

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.”

gd to learn frm ur z rely hlpful n hpe u ll update mre in future.


Assalamu alaikum
All hadiths regarding women r very nice but these hadiths don’t have any reference. I can’t share with my friends.pls mention the reference too


Wsalam Brother….

Im happy to see you r asking for sources….generally people don’t care and with good info they share lies too…

I Will update Article…soon…InshahAllah


I have read in a hadith that it is unlawful for a woman to wear gold, how authentic is this? who is to wear gold and who is to wear silver between man and woman?


its unlawful for men,not women …. give us source brother.


Yes, I have read in a hadiat too that women can’t wear Gold, but in a relevant hadiat our Prophet PBUH said that yes you can wear only when you can pay Zakaat for that. Jazak Allah


Yeah man, exactly, unlawful for men not women. But men can wear silver. Give us source man, evidence.

Cheers bro 😛


thanks for ur concern


Asalm,is praying at home gud for unmarried lady in Islam


is putting deodorant haram.even if its is necessary for that person.


talking with younger or elder cousin brother is not haram , but it is necessary to veil your hairs infront of them…


Assalam mu ailikum brothers in Islam my ? Is very important the way point no: 7, is said does it mean a woman can go out with a another man whose not brother, cousin or relative. If it does then surely woman needs to perform sin ie wear perfume, wear tight clothes to be atracted. Woman’s who has no brothers, point no 7 would ruin their relationship to whom as for family. Brother if that’s not the case please reinstate or transilate in a way when a sister reads should understand going out wiv another man would only break husband and upset brothers,cousin and father…. If that’s really allowed then it’s easy to make som1 else wife my friend wiv my supercar. To ny woman would be opportunities.. Ps pass my comment to other web users. Ps if Iv mistaken the ?, it’s not my fault that’s how I understood the ? Surely many wont understand mahram


it means she cant travel for more than a certain mileage. i cant remember exactly so will refrain from saying. but it is quite far and doesnt mean eg she cant go shopping without a mehram. jazakaallah may allah bless us all.


i think u took it wrong… the hadith said, a women should travel with her husband, or any other mahram whom she cannot marry ie. father, brother, etc…. u shud nt take any hadith in negativity….


can women expose themselves to their husbands?


retarded question


Of course a woman can be a scholar!!! EVERY MUSLIM has the right to be a scholar if they are willing to learn and follow the Qur’an and hadith. You shoudn’t even have fought with your wife over it!! Without mentioning that you were wrong, but every person can make mistakes..and you did ask..

Beware preventing someone to learn the way of Islam can become a sin!! Yes you are maintainers of YOUR women(not the whole population of women) in that you guide them in doing what is prescribed by Islam..but if they are willing to be well versed in it by themselves, let them!! It is a most noble act to do. Even the wives of our prophet(may peace be upon him) were learning and guiding people!! Muslims shoud stop thinking that because men only have been prophets OR because of certain ayats in the holy Qur’an on women( which men often tend to deduce as being infavourable to women, hence often using it to dominate their women) implies women are inferior. Allah is most perfect and merciful and has not wronged anyone of us in anyway. Both men and women has their value in Islam..but upon reading the holy Qur’an carefully we will notice that Islam has cater and protected women more Alhamdullillah!!

There is no such verse prohibiting women(remember Islam is just, but people are not, thus they have always tried to restrict women using Islam!! which is a very serious sin!) but there are emphasis on learning in let them learn inshaAllah


Abdallah is right! Check out this link that I found about some prominent female scholars in the first millennium


you can’t expose your sattar to your mehram either, and hair include in sattar.


Assalamu Aleykum Brothers,

Can a woman in Islam be a scholar in Islam or is it only a title given to men? I had an arguement with my wife and told her that Islam doesn’t permit it since the Qur’an clearly says that we are mainters of our women, as practiced by our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Is there a verse in the Holy Qur’an or Hadith that mention something on this matter, whether women can or can’t be Islamic Scholars.
Thank you for replying.


Ayesha(ra) was a woman and was one of the best islamic scholars


As Salaam u alikum brother!

Women are allowed to become scholars according to Islam. There is no hadeeth that I came across till now which denied this right to women. In fact I have seen a number of ahadeeth that are favorable towards the (religious) education of women. I also have read that women also used to be present (in proper pardah and areas) in mosque while our Prophet (s.a.w) used to teach men about Islam. Women used to ask our Prophet about the matters concerning them.

A reason that will inshaAllah make you understand the point is that women are to be kept in a protected environment (that is what the maintainer in Quran should mean), without any access to non-mahram men. Brother if such are the conditions who would teach women about Islam? There are certain ladies things that can’t be discussed by our women in open with male scholars and there are less chances that their husbands would know about it. Hence there must be scholars among women who would educate them regarding their deen.

I suppose the “maintainer of women” as is mentioned in Quran means that men are to provide the material needs of their women because of the restrictions placed on women by the Quran.

I would suggest you to read Quran with commentary if you wish to understand the meaning of it. Tafseer of ibn Kathir is undisputed and accepted by majority of scholars if not all.

Research on your own and Allah will help you. As Allah says in Quran that he has made this (Quran) easy for you (humans) to learn and understand.

JazakAllahu Khairan

Wa Salaam!


.Assalamualaikum 1as to what characteristics makes a good muslim girl.?
can a girl expose her hair to other girls,father,brother,grand father,chacha,couzins?

In few of the hadiths it is also said that women should wear scarf on head even at home, and veil themselves properly infront of gair mahrams.. but it is not important to cover her hair infront of her girl friends and younger cousins…


is it allowed to talk with elder and younger couzin brothers.


Salaamz 🙂
Is it bad to talk to a boy once after getting proposed by parents b4 the nikkah? whats the best way to make dua? plz help me in it
w/salaam 🙂


Wa Alikum as Salaam!

Sister, if a boy proposes, makes it known to her parents and is going to marry the girl, it is allowed for him to talk to the girl but in presence of the girl’s mahram.

This is not a fatwa but I read it myself. Rest research yourself more and Allah will reward you.

JazakAllahu khairan!
