‘Umar’s (radiyallahu ‘anhu) statement regarding a woman who has abundant garments

Question

Is this statement authentically attributed to Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu)?

“Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said “Verily, when a woman has garments in abundance [more than she requires and more than what is the norm] and she loves adornment, then she will love khuruj [emergence from the home to prowl around in the public domain to show off her clothing].”

Is this Hadith authentic?

Sa’id ibn Jubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says:

‘By keeping the miswak on the ground if a person becomes mad [majnun], he should blame none other than himself.’

Proof for segregation

Question

I need to know if the verse below relates to any women or only for the wives of Rasullullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)?

I see in todays times many Shaykhs speak directly to women and also many gatherings have men and women together.

Allah Ta’ala says in Surah Ahzab, verse 53:

وَإِذَا  سَأَلْتُمُوهُنَّ مَتَاعًا فَاسْأَلُوهُنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ  ذَلِكُمْ أَطْهَرُ لِقُلُوبِكُمْ وَقُلُوبِهِنَّ

And when you ask anything from them (the blessed wives of the Prophet), ask them from behind a curtain. That is better for the purity of your hearts and their hearts.

I thank you for your kind efforts in giving us guidance. Jazakallah !
