Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advice to treat women well during the farewell Hajj

Question

Is there a Hadith wherein Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said something to the effect “Treat women well” during the farewell Hajj. I thought it was among the advises given in the farewell Hajj, but recently I was told there is no such narration?

 

Answer

This was indeed one of the advises offered by Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) during the farewell Hajj.

Sulayman ibn ‘Amr ibn Al Ahwas said:

“My father narrated to me that he witnessed the farewell Hajj with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) praised and extolled Allah and he reminded and gave admonition. Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam then said: “And indeed I order you to be good to the women…”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1163 and Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1851. See the full Hadith here)

 

In the narration of Sahih Muslim which discusses a sermon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) delivered in the farewell Hajj, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Fear Allah with regard to women…’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1218)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
