The Hadith Mursal and the Hadith of Asma' on Hijab
What is the meaning of Hadith Mursal?
It was reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
O Asmaa', when a woman reaches the age of menstruation, nothing should be seen of her except this and this
and he pointed to the face and hands. Is this Hadith Mursal or Da‘if (weak)? Was this Hadith stated before or after the revelation of the Ayah (Qur’anic verses) of Hijab (veil)?
Hadith Mursal is a Hadith with no Companion of the Prophet in its chain of narration. As for the above-mentioned Hadith of
Asma', it is a weak Hadith.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
