Q 5: What is the explanation of the Hadith in which the Messenger (peace be upon him) said:
Women are created from a rib, and the most crooked portion of the rib is its upper portion
? What is meant by this crookedness?
It means that women definitely have some crookedness or shortcomings in their characters just like a rib. If a person wants to perfect his wife, he will only end up divorcing her. Hence, husbands should resort to patience, discard some of their wives' natural crookedness and constantly advise and guide them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
