Hadith Concerning Calling Women as Glass Vessels

Praise be to Allah,


[Muhammad] ibn Abu ‘Adiyy narrated to us from Humayd [at-Taweel] from Anas ibn Maalik who said,

“A man by the name of Anjashah was driving the [camels carrying] the Mothers of the Believers very fast, and Allah’s said to him, ‘Drive slowly, Anjashah, and be gentle with the glass vessels.” 

(Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 3, p. 107. The isnaad of this hadeeth is Saheeh according to the conditions set by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim.)



Mothers of the Believers is the title given to the Prophet’s wives.

The phrase “glass vessels” is used here metaphorically to mean women.



Thulaathiyyaat Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal (may Allah have mercy on him)

Reports of Imaam Ahmad that have only three narrators between him and the Prophet, peace, and blessings be upon him.
