    No one, who knows the Arabic language, doubts that the meaning here means marriage as that is how the phrase is used. Even you admit it as a possibility.

    What you now need to do is bring us a a single - just one - commentary on the hadith by a reputable scholar who endorses your "theory." As it is, no one on the planet but you understands this hadith to mean what you understand it to mean. What is worse is that you think others like the authors of Kuwaiti Encyclopedia chose the understanding which goes against what you claim should be understood from the hadith.

    Bring us one scholar who understood it as you did. If you cannot, then you need to learn not to spread false understandings of the primary texts.

    The only one making conjectures here, something you accused me of, is you.
    Now we know for sure who works with conjectures. Not one scholar understands the phrase as he does.

    I guess translators will be translators and not scholars
    Watch those eyes

      I don't understand what you're asking for.

      Do you need a scholar to say that the term "Haajah" can mean a wide range of things in the context of a Khitbah?

      Rather the onus is on the claimant not the one who questions the claim. This is a basic principle of debate and discussion that you fail to grasp.

      If you want to obligate everyone with accepting a certain translation, then you have to prove it. You have not brought a single quote which proves correct the restriction of the interpretation of "Haajah" as "marriage" in the context of Khitbah and the Hadith in question.

      I know you think that you've proven it with the quote from the Kuwaiti Encyclopedia of Fiqh, however you are wrong as it does not explicitly address the interpretation of the term "Haajah" but rather the circumstance in general, i.e. it is permissible for the Prophet SAWS to marry Ansariyyaat based on the Hadith in general.

      I've made it clear that I do not deny that the term "Haajah" in the context of Khitbah includes "marriage". My argument is that it is not restricted to it.

      It is clear to me that you have not reviewed all the possible meanings for the phrase "Haajah feehaa" in the context of marriage or Khitbah and for that reason you are blindly partisan to the translation of a single individual. That coupled with your jealousy of me, lack of knowledge, lack of manners and lack of scruples in dealing with fellow Muslims has led you to be insulting towards and to lie about me.

      I also find it interesting that [MENTION=143459]Tayoofa[/MENTION] made the mistake of translating أيّم as "widow" and restricting it to that meaning and you didn't jump all over her. That proves your insincerity in pretending to be the guardian of poor translations and translators.

      You're a sad individual [MENTION=40692]ZeeshanParvez[/MENTION].

        If you had spent your time actually responding to my points, you might have uncovered your own twists and distortions of the language.

        Answer this question, which is basic logic:

        I have a hammer that I want to sell to you.

        It is known in our neighborhood that if anyone has any tools to sell, that you are a resourceful person and would either buy them yourself or know someone who needed to.

        So I approach you with the hammer with the intention of either selling it to you or to someone through you.

        If you tell me you don't need it, that simply means that you don't wish to buy it. However if you say you might need it, then that can mean that either:

        1) You wish to buy it for yourself;


        2) You might have someone else who will buy it.

        What you're trying to argue, and quite unsuccessfully, is that the term "need" in this context can only refer to whether the person approached wishes to buy the hammer and that it is impossible for it to mean that he may have someone else interested in buy it.

        Proof that you're wrong is in the Hadith itself:

        The Ansar would inform the Prophet SAWS when they had a female relative who was available for marriage.

        The intention behind informing the Prophet SAWS was two-fold:

        1) Hoping for the slight chance that the Prophet SAWS might wish to marry the woman;


        2) The more likely possibility that the Prophet SAWS would know someone righteous to marry the female relative to.

        The Prophet SAWS was known for matching individuals for marriage.

        Statistically, the Prophet SAWS was not known for marrying many women compared to the number of times he SAWS was most likely informed of the availability of a woman.

        The Hadith of Abu Barzah specifically mentions this detail about the Ansar informing the Prophet SAWS when a female relative was available for marriage directly before mentioning that the Prophet SAWS approached one such family and asked for the female relative's hand on behalf of a righteous Companions RA.

        The story of the Khitbah of the Prophet SAWS on behalf of Julaybeeb RA directly after the information regarding the custom of the Ansar in informing the Prophet SAWS about eligible women 100% demonstrates that the term "Haajah" in the context of marriage proposals INCLUDES matchmaking as well.

        So if the Prophet SAWS "had a need" for an eligible woman, that "need" also included matching her up with one of his SAWS Companions RA, NOT JUST FOR HIMSELF.

        If you can't understand that, then you are a hopeless individual who already does not deal with translations and who should probably never deal with them.

        It's basic logic.

          Both of you are right lool and I don't think this matter is important

          Ibn Al Qayyim may Allah have mercy on him said: ("
          The heart on its journey towards Allah the Exalted is like that of a bird. Love is its head, and fear and hope are its two wings. When the head is healthy, then the two wings will fly well. When the head is cut off, the bird will die. When either of two wings is damaged, the bird becomes vulnerable to every hunter and predator..”

            But one among these two must read post # 51 here and also ask dua to Allah for avoiding knowledge that is not beneficial and to get iklaas which is the essence of Hidayah



            Narrated by Abu Dawood, 4273; al-Tirmidhi, 2433. classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. (Islamqa)

            It was narrated that Abu’l-Darda’ (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Shall I not tell you something that is better than the status of (voluntary) fasting, prayer and charity?” They said: “Yes.” He said:“Reconciling in a case of discord, for the evil of discord is the shaver.” Al-Tirmidhi said: It was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It is the shaver, and I do not say that it shaves hair, but that it shaves (i.e., destroys) religious commitment.”

              The OP can rest assured that the English translation he was directed to was quite accurate.

              Here is an Urdu translation of the Hadith. The Hadith is present in Sahih Ibn Hibbaan as well.

              The author here also correctly understands it and translates it as "shaadi" which means marriage.

              The Urdu speaking audience here will understand. I don't expect some people to ever understand. : )

                Re: I need a reference from Musnad Ahmad of this Hadeeth

                As for the word al-ayyim

                Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) as having said:

                A woman without a husband (or divorced or a widow) [al-ayyim] must not be married until she is consulted, and a virgin must not be married until her permission is sought. They asked the Prophet of Allah (sallallaahu alyahi wa sallam): How her (virgin's) consent can be solicited? He (the Holy Prophet) said: That she keeps silence.

                [Sahih Muslim Hadith No. 1419]

                Imaam al-Nawawi has mentioned the following under this hadith [paraphrase of]

                The scholars have said that the ayyim, here, refers to the thayyib [a deflowered but unmarried woman, widow, divorcee] just like the other narration explains it [to be].

                al-Qaadi said the scholars differed in regards to the intended meaning of al-ayyim here despite the agreement of the scholars of the language that it is used for a woman who does not have any spouse whether she is young or old, a virgin or a non-virgin.

                al-Qaadi said that the scholars differed in regards to the intended meaning here. The scholars of al-Hijaaz and the masses of the jurists said that the intended meaning is al-thayyib [a deflowered but unmarried woman, widow, diforcee]. They have drawn evidence from the fact that the word has been used in another narration which makes it clear that it means al-thayyib. They have also drawn evidence from the fact that it is placed in opposition to the virgin and that it is most often used in the language to mean al-thayyib.

                Volume 9 Page 203


                فالثيب من النساء من زالت عذرتها ، وقد اختلف في تعريفها شرعا، فعند الأحناف هي من لم تتزوج، وعند الشافعية والحنابلة: هي الموطوءة في القبل، سواء كان الوطء حلالا أو حراما، أو كان وهي نائمة، وهي تقابل البكر

                [Paraphrase] A woman who is termed al-thayyib is one who has lost her virginity. The scholars have differed in regards to the legislative understanding of the word. The Shaafi'i and Hanaabilah say that it refers to the woman who has had sexual intercourse in the vagina regardless of if the intercourse was permissible or impermissible, whether she was asleep [when it took place] and she is the opposite of the bikr [virgin].

                As for this word [al-ayyim], if one were to claim it meant widow, they could still build a case to support it. This is unlike and in contrast to anyone making claims that a man who has a Haaja in a woman has a need to act as her matchmaker.

                One needs to not only understand the dictionary usage of the word but also how it is used in Islamic legislation. Mere literal translations are not how a language is understood.
