Wife threatening to leave Islam


Salaamu alakum wr wb. Bismillah Rahmaani Rahiim.

My wife has great problems being a Muslima. The major problems she has is accepting the following ahadeeth:

1) “The majority of the people in hell-fire are women.”

2) “I have not seen any one more deficient in intelligence and religion than you (women).”

There has been several other isuues as well, but after some research we have found them to be either misquotes, weak ahadith or taken out of context. Jazaakumullahu Khayran.


`Alaykum Salam,

(1) The majority of people are women, period. As for Muslim women, they will all be in Paradise without exception.

(2) The contextual meaning is a hyperbole to show that Divine generosity and reward isĀ  just as great for women despite less credit for them in dunya.

Allah Most High said 49:13 … {Truly the most honorable of you [male/female, human tribes] are the most Godfearing.} And He said: 2:195 {and do not throw yourselves by your own hands into destruction.}

Hajj Gibril Haddad
