Awrah

She was more concerned about exposing her awrah than her health… How far is yesterday from today?

.

awrah chart“Atta’ ibn Abu-Rabah reports that once Abdullah ibn Abbas said to him: ‘Would you like me to point out to you a woman who will be in heaven?’.

.

Atta’ said: Yes. Ibn Abbas said:

‘This woman came once to the Prophet (Pbuh) and said: “I suffer from severe epilepsy and parts of my body get exposed. Will you …please pray Allah for me?” ‘

.

The Prophet (Pbuh) said to her: “The choice is yours: You may wish to endure it with patience and have admission into heaven as your reward, or you may wish me to pray Allah to cure you.”

.

She said: “I will endure it, but some parts of my body get exposed, so pray Allah for me not to be exposed.” The Prophet (Pbuh) prayed for her.

.
