question asked by hasiff ibrahim from malaysia on 8-sep-2007.
hadith of husbands calling their wives to bed, does it apply to men & women?
in sahih bukhari volume 4, book 54, number 460:
it is stated:
narrated abu huraira:
allah's apostle said, "if a husband calls his wife to his bed (i.e. to have
sexual relation) and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels
will curse her till morning." i have heard one muslim speaker who contended that
according to the arabic grammar the pronouns in here and other similar hadiths,
are general and applies to both sexes i.e the hadith should be more accurately
be translated as "if a person calls his/her spouse to his/her bed....."(perhaps
like the word assalamualaikum refers to both sexes & not just to males) this
would be in line to islamic justice and the order to treat the wife fairly and
to fulfill her needs. is this interpretation correct?
