‘Aaishah’s (radiyallahu ‘anha) disapproval of backgammon


Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) heard that some people who were living on her property had a backgammon set, so she sent word to them saying: ‘If you do not throw it out, I will throw you out of my property. And she denounced them for that. (Al Adabul Mufrad)



Yes, it is. The narration is recorded in Muwatta Imam Malik and Al Adabul Mufrad of Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah).

(Muwatta Imam Malik: 2753, Al Adabul Mufrad: 1274)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
