Back to book

1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ أَبِي الْجَوْزَاءِ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عُلْوَانَ عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ طَرِيفٍ عَنِ الأصْبَغِ بْنِ نُبَاتَةَ قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) كَتَبَ اللهُ الْجِهَادَ عَلَى الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ فَجِهَادُ الرَّجُلِ بَذْلُ مَالِهِ وَنَفْسِهِ حَتَّى يُقْتَلَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ وَجِهَادُ الْمَرْأَةِ أَنْ تَصْبِرَ عَلَى مَا تَرَى مِنْ أَذَى زَوْجِهَا وَغَيْرَتِهِ. وَفِي حَدِيثٍ آخَرَ جِهَادُ الْمَرْأَةِ حُسْنُ التَّبَعُّلِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from abu al-Jawza’ from al-Husayn ibn ‘Ulwan from Sa‘d ibn Tarif from af-Asbagh ibn Nubatah who has said the following: “Amir al-Mu’minin, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Allah has made Jihad obligatory upon man and woman. Jihad of man is making his wealth and soul available until he is killed in the way of Allah. Jihad of woman is exercising patience when facing hardships caused by her husband and because of his showing strong al-Ghirah (protective feelings) for her. In another Hadith it is said that Jihad of a woman is to maintain good wife and husband relationship.”
