Prohibition of a woman ruler

Weekly Sultaniyya Hadith Source Week No: 15


Prohibition of a woman ruler

Hadith 18, A people who appoint a woman as their leader will never succeed (Bukhari)

Commentary:

A: It is narrated that the hadith of the Prophet came when he heard that the daughter of Kisra was appointed as the ruler of the Persians, indicating that it is directly related to ruling.

B: As mentioned by Imam Sana'aani - the hadith indicates the prohibition of women taking any position from the general ruling positions amongst the Muslims

C: According to the Hanafi school of thought it is permitted to appoint women to specific roles as judges as long as they are not involved in the application of Hudood.

D: The wording of the hadith is general and so can be applied to any position of ruling whether the Khalifah or Wali or lower.

Fortress of the Muslim

Supplication when prostrating due to recitation of the Quran
سَجَدَ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ، وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ، بِحَوْلِهِ وَقُوَّتِهِ، فَتَبَارَكَ اللهُ أَحسَنُ الْخَالِقِي

My face fell prostrate before He who created it and brought forth its faculties of hearing and seeing by His might and power. So Blessed is Allah, the best of creators.
