crowdpushing_1 (1)

From Manbuth bin Abi Sulaiman, from his mother [ranha], she was with ‘Aishah, the wife of the Prophet ﷺ, the Mother of the Believers [ranha], 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 [ranha] 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 [ranha] admonished Ummu Manbuth [ranha] 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?
