Asslamau`alaikum warhmatullahi wabarakathu,
Imam Ali ibna Abu Talib (عليه السلام) and Hadrat Fatimah (عليه السلام) once visited
the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلمand found him in tears. They asked him the cause and he replied:
‘O Ali, on the night of my ascension (Miraj) I saw women of my ummah who were being severily punished that I became concerned for them and started cyring.
I saw a woman who had been hung by her breast.
Then I saw a second woman who was eating her own flesh and
fire raged below her.
A third woman was hanging by her tongue and boiling water was
being poured down her throat.
A fourth was bent over, her hands and feet were tied together, and snakes and scorpions were crawling all over her
A fifth was deaf, dumb, and blind, enclosed in a cage of
fire, her brain oozing out of the holes in her skull. Her
body fell apart due to leprosy.
Another was hung by her feet, inside and over.
Yet another woman’s body was being shredded to pieces by
scissors made of fire.
One woman had a head of a pig and a body of a donkey and
was given several punishments.
Another had the face of a dog, fire was entering her
body from her posterior and come out of her mouth and the
angels were beating her with iron rods.’
Fatimah then inquired her father, ‘Please, tell me,
what did these women do (to deserve such punishment)?’
Then the Prophet SAW said :
‘Listen my dear;
The one who was hanging by her breast used to deny
her husband, his rightful pleasure;
The one hanging by her feet used to go out of her
house without her husband’s permission; The one eating her own flesh used to beautify herself and show her body to men other than her husband
The one who’s hands and feet were tied together and
covered with snakes and scorpions never to care impurity and
wasn’t careful about ghusl, thus taking her prayer lightly;
The deaf, blind, and dumb used to bear children
through adultery but claim the children belonged to her
The one whose body was being cut by scissors made of fire
never observed hijab in front of non mahrem men.
The one whose body was burned and who was eating her
own intestines used to provide other woman for sex;
The one with the face of a pig and a body of a donkey was a
backbiter and a liar.
And those with the face of a dog and who had fire
entering her behind and coming out of her face was a jealous woman.’
For Muslim men and women for believing men and women
for devout men and women for true men and women
for men and women who are patient and constant for men and women
who humble themselves for men and women who give in charity
for men and women who fast (and deny themselves)
for men and women who guard their chastity and,
for men and women who engage much in Allaah’s praise For them has
Allaah prepared forgiveness and great reward. ( Surah Ahzab )
My dear sisters fear Allaah as He should be feared and be
amongst these women insha`Allaah Ta’aala.
May Allaah (swt) guide us all on the seerat-ul-mustaqeen,
