Ibn Hibban narrated in his work Nazahti Al-Fadlaa the advice of Al-Khattaab bin Mu’laa Al-Makhzoomee to his son. At the end of his words he mentioned the following: “Know that women vary more than the fingers of your hand. So be cautious in dealing with them.”
Every Evil Women will inevitably harm you:
The First Type:
– The woman who is amazed with herself and belittles her husband (27).
– If he honors her she sees it not except as a result of her virtue over him (28).
– She shows no gratitude for his courtesy. In her eyes he always falls short.
– She lashes her tongue out at him like a sharp sword.
– Her imprudence has removed the cover of shyness from her face: she is not shy from exposing her faults even when in front of the neighbors (29).
– She is like a growling dog with rabies, barking and biting.
– Her husband’s face is sad (30), and his honor is violated with the people.
– She over burdens him with her bad etiquettes and does not tend to his worldly or religious affairs.
– Nor does she uphold her duties towards him in spite of his companionship and the many children they may share;
– She doesn’t recognize any good that he does.
– His covering is revealed and made public. All the good that he does is buried (31).
– He reaches the morning dispirited and enters the evening reprimanding her (32).
– His drink is sour. His food is rage. His children are wasted and his house is destroyed (33).
– His clothes is filthy and hair dishevel. If he laughs he is worn down (34), and if he speaks he feels sickened. His day is night; his night is misery (35).
– She bites him like a vicious snake, and stings like a scorpion.
The Second Type:
– From amongst them are: The Shafsha’leeq (The relaxed and lazy woman), Sha’sha (The tall woman), Salfa’a (The blatantly ill-mannered woman), possessor of saturated poison (36), a spark of light yet worn out, she moves with the wind and flies with everyone who has wings (37).
