Advice to The Muslim Woman


About the Book

 This book is a complete translation of a transcribed lecture from Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan entitled: “Naseehah Lil-Mar’at-il-Muslimah” (Advice to the Muslim Woman). The source used for this translation was the book Muhaadaraat fil ‘Aqeedah wad-Da’wah, a large compilation of over 25 transcribed lectures from Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan on issues of Creed and Methodology (vol. 3, pg. 281-299, Markaz Fajr, 2003 Edition) 

In this particular lecture, Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan covers many important topics related to women, such as veiling, being in privacy with male-strangers, traveling without a mahram and other things that are critical for a Muslim woman to understand and implement. 

This treatise will be included as the fourth essay in the forthcoming second publication of the veiling book published by Al-Ibaanah Book Publishing, which will be entitled “Four Essays on the Obligation of Veiling” by the Will of Allaah. May Allaah facilitate its publication. 

From the Lecture: 

All praise is for Allaah, Lord of all that exists, and may His peace and praises be on our  Prophet, Muhammad, as well as on his family and all of his Companions. 

To proceed: The brothers in charge of the Da’wah (here) felt that this lecture should be on the subject of “Advice to the Muslim Woman.” However, this does not mean that this lecture is restricted to only women. Rather, it is general, but with more of an emphasis on issues particular to women.

 There is no doubt also that a man is responsible for a woman since Allaah has blessed the men by creating for them spouses from amongst themselves as He says: 

يا أيها الناس اتقوا ربكم الذي خلقكم من نفس واحدة وخلق منها زوجها وبث منهما رجالا كثيرا ونساء واتقوا الله الذي تساءلون به والأرحام إن الله كان عليكم رقيبا 

“O mankind, fear your Lord who created you from a single soul (Aadam), and from that He created its wife, and from them, He created many men and women. Fear Allaah through whom you demand your mutual rights. And (do not cut off the relations of) the wombs. Surely, Allaah is ever an All-Watcher over you.” [Surah An-Nisaa: 1] 

And He says: 

هو الذي خلقكم من نفس واحدۃ وجعل منها زوجها لسن إليها 

“He is the one who created you from a single soul, and (then) made from that (soul) its spouse in order that he may enjoy the pleasure of living with her.” [Surah Al-A’raaf: 189] 

The wisdom behind this was so that he may find reassurance in her, enjoy her company and confide his secrets and personal affairs to her, so that she in turn could assist him in the difficult stages of life, and also so that there may be produced from them righteous offspring. Allaah says: 

ومن آياته أن خلق لكم من أنفسكم أزواجا لتسكنوا إليها وجعل بينكم مودة ورحمة إن في ذلك لآيات لقوم يتفكرون 

“And from His signs is that He created for you wives from amongst yourselves that you may find repose in them. And He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for people who reflect.” [Surah Ar-Room: 21] 

This is one of Allaah’s signs – i.e. the proofs that indicate His Ability and Mercy, and His right to be worshipped alone without any partners. Allaah has fashioned human society to consist of men and women, as He says: 

يا أيها الناس إنا خلقناكم من ذكر وأنثى وجعلناكم شعوبا وقبائل لتعارفوا إن أكرمكم عند الله أثقاكم 

“O mankind, indeed We created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another. Verily, the most noble amongst you in the sight of Allaah is the one with the most Taqwaa (fear and dutifulness to Allaah).” [Surah Al-Hujuraat: 13] 

So the unification of a man and a woman by way of a lawful relationship is one of Allaah’s blessings since great benefits result from this, the most important of which is the formation of a society, the creation of families and the building of homes.

This is from Allaah’s blessings.

So due to all of this, special importance must be given to the woman from the perspective of instructing and guiding her, from the perspective of choosing a pious wife that is religious, and from the perspective of interacting with her such that a man does not exploit his authority over her by oppressing her or maltreating her. Allaah says: 

وعاشروهن بالمعروف 

“And live with them honorably.” [Surah An-Nisaa: 19] 

And He says: 

الطلاق مرتان فإمساك بمعروف أو تسريح بإحسان 

“The divorce is twice. After that, either you retain her on reasonable terms or release her with kindness.” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 229] 

So a man’s connection with a woman is a firm and strong one.

 This connection must be built upon what Allaah has legislated from honorable cohabiting, noble guardianship
