Hadith Explanation

Reward of Jihad for Staying at Home

“Anas (radi Allahu anhu) reported that once a group of women came to the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and said, ‘O Prophet of Allah! Men have reaped all the rewards of participating in Jihad; show us a deed which will help us reach the rewards of the Mujahideen.’ The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, ‘Any one of you who stays in her home protecting her modesty and honour will receive the rewards of Jihad.’” [Musnad Bazzaar]

In this day and age hardly anything is promoted as much as women leaving their homes in the name of “equal opportunity.” But is it really “equal opportunity” or “equal and unnecessary hardship”?

If a woman can stay safely in her house, bringing up her children, without the strains of strenuous travel and the battlefield, saving herself from having to mingle among men; and above all, get the same levels of Paradise for this, which fool will insist on hardship?
