Hair like humps hadith Quran

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sahih Muslim Hadith 6840     Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said:   "There are two types,  amongst the denizens of Hell,  I have yet not seen them.   One possessing whips like the tail of an ox and they flog people with them. (The second one) the women who would be naked,  in spite of their being dressed, who are seduced (to wrong paths) and seduce others with their hair high like humps.  These women would not get into Paradise,  and they would not perceive the odour of Paradise , although its fragrance can be perceived from such and such distance (from great distance).."


Respected sister, the above quoted hadith is from amongst the recorded statements of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and not from the Glorious Quran, and to the best of our knowledge there is no specific reference to this particular act or hadith in the Glorious Quran.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisa verse 79-80:

We have sent you (O Mohamed) as a Messenger to mankind, and Allah’s witness suffices for this. Whoever obeys the Messenger, in fact obeys Allah, and whoever turns away from him, he will be accountable for his deeds. Anyhow, we have not sent you (O Mohamed) to be a guardian over them.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 31-32:

O Prophet, tell the people, “If you sincerely love Allah, follow me. Then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for He is All Forgiving, All Merciful.” Also say to them, “Obey Allah and His Messenger.” And if, in spite of this, they do not accept your invitation, warn them that Allah does not love those, who refuse to obey Him and His Messenger.

If a statement is attributed to the Noble Prophet of Allah (saws) and is considered authentic, it is absolutely imperative, obligatory, and considered an integral and inseparable part of faith for the believers to follow the established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
