*THE TEN ACCURSED WOMEN*
The following are the ten sinful women or those women who are accursed and who will be removed from the mercy of Allaah تعالى:
*1. Tattooing: the one who does it and the one who gets it done.*
*2. Plucking the eyebrows: the doers and the one who gets it done.*
*3. Artificially creating space between the teeth to look beautiful: the doers and the one who gets it done.*
Source (Hadith): ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: I heard the Messenger of Allah saying,
❝Allah has cursed the woman who does tattoos and the one who has them done, the woman who plucks eyebrows (al-naamisah) and the one who has it done (al-mutanammisah), and the one who files her teeth for the purpose of beauty, altering the creation of Allaah.❞
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5931; Muslim, 2125)
*4. Adding false hair: the provider of false hair and the one who gets it done.*
Source (Hadith): Narrated Ibn `Umar and Abu Hurairah :
The Prophet ﷺ has cursed the lady who lengthens her hair artificially and the one who gets her hair lengthened, and also the lady who tattoos (others) and the one who gets herself tattooed.
(Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5933, 5934, 5937, 5940, 5942, 5947, ) and Saheeh Muslim (5298, 5300) and also reported on the authority of `Aaishah)
*5. The woman whose husband is angry at her:*
Source (Hadith): Narrated Abu Hurairah:The Prophet said, ❝If a woman spends the night deserting her husband’s bed (does not sleep with him), then the angels send their curses on her till she comes back (to her husband).❞
(Saheeh Buhari (3237, 5193, 5194) and Saheeh Muslim (3366, 3368)
*6. Those who imitate men:*
Source (Hadith): Narrated Ibn `Abbaas: Allah’s Messenger ﷺ cursed those men who are in the similitude (assume the manners) of women and those women who are in the similitude (assume the manners) of men. (Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5885))
*7. Those Women who are Ungrateful to their Husband:*
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
The Prophet said,
❝I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful.❞
It was asked, ❝Do they disbelieve in Allah?❞ (or are they ungrateful to Allah?
The prophet replied,
❝They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, ‘I have never received any good from you.❞
(Saheeh al- Bukhaaree Vol. 7 Hadith no.5197)
*8. Those Women who wear Perfume and go out (to the market or mosque):*
It was narrated from Abu Moosa (Radiyyallahu Anhu) that the Prophet said,
❝If a woman puts on perfume and passes by people so that they can smell her fragrance, then she is such and such,❞
And he (Salalahu Alayhi Wasalam) spoke sternly – meaning an adulteress (zaaniyah).
(Narrated by Abu Dawood (4173) and al-Tirmidhi (2786); classed as saheeh by Ibn Daqeeq al-Eid in al-Iqtiraah (126) and by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi)
N.B : It is not permissible for women to put on perfume, whether she is going to the mosque or anywhere else; rather it is narrated that women are specifically forbidden to use perfume when going to the mosque.
It was narrated that Zaynab, the wife of ‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas‘ood (may Allah be pleased with her and her husband) said:
The Messenger of Allaah said to us,
❝If one of you (women) wants to go to the mosque, let her not put on perfume.❞
(Saheeh Muslim (443))
*9. Women making a wanton display of themselves (Tabarruj) and showing their charms and not adhering to correct Islamic hijab and noble Islamic manners.*
*10. Those Women who pile their hair on top of their heads(camel hump hijab), they will not see Paradise or smell its fragrance:*
Narrated Abu Hurayrah (Radiyyallahu Anhu) that the Prophet ﷺ said:
❝There are two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen: men with whips like the tails of cattle with which they strike the people, and women who are clothed but naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something like the humps of camels on their heads.
They will not enter Paradise nor even smell its fragrance, and its fragrance can be smelled from such and such a distance.❞
Al-Nawawi said concerning the meaning of this passage: “clothed yet naked” means that they will uncover part of their bodies to show their beauty, so they will be clothed yet naked.
And it was said that they will wear thin clothes which shows what is beneath them, so they will be clothed yet virtually naked.
