From Manbuth bin Abi Sulaiman, from his mother , she was with ‘Aishah, the wife of the Prophet ﷺ, the Mother of the Believers , when she entered upon her to serve her. She said to her: “O Mother of the Believers! I did tawaf around the Kaaba seven times, and I touched the Corner of Yemeni twice or maybe three times.” Aishah said: “May Allah not reward you! May Allah not reward you! Did you push the men? Why didn’t you just recite takbir and pass?” –Musnad Al-Imam As-Shafie
Why didn’t you just recite takbir and pass?
Aishah admonished Ummu Manbuth and stressed her disapproval on pushing the crowd, though with good intention, while persisting to kiss the Hajar Al-Aswad. So what about those women who jostle their way through a crowd of men, with ill intentions, who persist on fulfilling their desires, while they adorn themselves, dressed up and perfumed?
