Back to book

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ أَبِی الْبِلَادِ عَنْ أَبِیهِ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص مَنْ أَعْتَقَ مُؤْمِناً أَعْتَقَ اللَّهُ بِکُلِّ عُضْوٍ مِنْهُ عُضْواً مِنَ النَّارِ وَ إِنْ کَانَتْ أُنْثَی أَعْتَقَ اللَّهُ بِکُلِّ عُضْوَیْنِ مِنْهَا عُضْواً مِنْهُ مِنَ النَّارِ لِأَنَّ الْمَرْأَهَ نِصْفٌ مِنَ الرَّجُلِ.


1. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who frees a believing slave for the sake of Allah, for each part of the body of that slave, the Almighty Allah will keep the parts of his body safe from the fire of Hell. If that slave is a woman for every two parts of the body of that woman, the Almighty Allah will keep a part of his body safe from the fire of Hell. Surely a woman is half that of a man.”
