    Explanation on Some verses

    Report bad ads?

    Can someone give me a tafsir on this hadith


    Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 709:
    Narrated Abu Bakra:

    During the days (of the battle) of Al-Jamal, Allah benefited me with a word I had heard from Allah's Apostle after I had been about to join the Companions of Al-Jamal (i.e. the camel) and fight along with them. When Allah's Apostle was informed that the Persians had crowned the daughter of Khosrau as their ruler, he said, "Such people as ruled by a lady will never be successful."


    Does this show women will never be good leaders?

    Re: Explanation on Some verses

    No, he first posted some verses then said never mind. I never saw his new question.

    Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 709:
    Narrated Abu Bakra:

    During the days (of the battle) of Al-Jamal, Allah benefited me with a word I had heard from Allah's Apostle after I had been about to join the Companions of Al-Jamal (i.e. the camel) and fight along with them. When Allah's Apostle was informed that the Persians had crowned the daughter of Khosrau as their ruler, he said, "Such people as ruled by a lady will never be successful."

    Does this show women will never be good leaders?
    Very good question. First of all some points:

    1. The only source that muslims use to say that women cannot be leaders is this one saying ot the Prophet Muhammad saws about the Queen of Persia.

    2. This saying is not enough evidence, and it was not necessarily understood by the companions to mean that women cannot be leaders. Many companions understood it to refer specifically to the persian empire, and that they would not be sucessful

    3. The strongest evidence that women can be leaders is that Zubair and Talha, two companions promised paradise, allowed Aisha rd to be their leader, and not just any leader but a MILITARY LEADER

    4. This was seen by all companions as a position of leadership, which is demonstrated by this companion(abu Bakra, not to be confused with the 1st caliph Abu Bakr) remembering this hadith at the battle of the camel

    5. To say that talha nad Zubair were uninformed on this subject is ridiculous, because they were amongst the ten promised paradise, and they were the foremost of companions in terms of knowledge


    So in conclusion, it was not agreed upon by the salaf, and it is not agreed upon today. It is an issue open for discussion. many scholars feel that women can occupy certain positions of leadership in society.

    Re: Explanation on Some verses

    Ah yes, Aisha did lead a military campaign...

    But was she successful?

    Her military campaign was against Ali who would become the fourth caliph!

    And after this campaign she was confined to her house for the rest of her life.

    Aisha's example only proves the point that was made in the above quoted Hadith.

    I know that the Hadith does not forbid women to rule, but it does suggest that women have a short-coming when it comes to rulership doesn't it ?

    I do agree with your point that this solitary Hadith isn't enough eveidence though.
    This was the response i got, did she fail and why was she going against ali?

    Re: Explanation on Some verses

    She did not fail, they decided to end the conflict. The conflict was also initiated by accident. She decided that it was not a wise decision, but that does not mean that she failed. Also, she was a leader in many other fields and was successful. She was a scholar of Ahadith and has narrated to us thousands of ahadith. Wouldn't you say that is success?

    You can read about the conflict here:

    When i find a better article I'll give it to you.

    Re: Explanation on Some verses

    The supreme ruler of the muslims i.e. khalifa will always be a male, and there is no dispute on that. Just like the Imaam of the prayers must always be a male.

    Besides, western countries don't have women rulers themselves.
