‘Uqba Bin ‘Āmir RadhiyAllahu anhu narrates that Rasulullāh ﷺ has said that: “Beware! Avoid visiting women.” A man from Ansār asked: “What about the brother in law?” He ﷺ answered: “Brother in law is death.”
- Like how death destroys a persons physical and wordly life, in the same way for a woman to mingle with her brother in law and other ghayr mahram men will destroy her.
- Brother in law is mentioned exclusively in this hadith, because generally people do NOT consider mingling with him to be a bad thing.
- The reason for using the word “death” is because Arabs use it to warn against anything that is dangerous.
- From the hadith above, we learn that mingling with a brother in law and Ghayr Mahram men both is prohibited, but mingling with a brother in law is MORE DANGEROUS than mingling…
