Can you please verify if this statement is a Hadith and if it’s authentic.
A woman came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and asked him why all the verses in the Quran mentioned only men, [then after that the Quran always mentioned men and women.]
Sayyidatuna Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu’anha) reports that she once enquired from Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam):
‘O Messenger of Allah, why is it that we [women] are not mentioned in the Quran like the men are?’
Very soon thereafter I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) reciting to the Sahabah verse: 35 of Surah Ahzab.’
