Prophet (s) used to sit in female gatherings

We read in Sahih Bukhari the Book of Nikah Volume 7, Book 62, Number 77:

Narrated Ar-Rabi’:
(the daughter of Muawwidh bin Afra) After the consummation of my marriage, the Prophet came and sat on my bed as far from me as you are sitting now, and our little girls started beating the tambourines and reciting elegiac verses mourning my father who had been killed in the battle of Badr. One of them said, “Among us is a Prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow.” On that the Prophet said, “Leave this (saying) and keep on saying the verses which you had been saying before.”


This is indeed a shameless belief of the Salafis. Is it believable that the Prophet (s) would enter a female gathering and then proceeded to sit on the same bed as the bride to listen to girls singing? No normal Muslim would behave this and these Salafis believe that this was the conduct of the Prophet (s).

Salafi belief that the Prophet (s) enjoyed wedding parties and singers

We read in Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 109:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Once the Prophet saw some women and children coming from a wedding party. He got up energetically and happily and said, “By Allah! You (i.e., the Ansar) are the most beloved of all people to me.”

NOTE: The Salafi translator had inserted (i.e. the Ansar) into the brackets to suggest that the Prophet (s) was merely referring to his love at that tribe, the question we would like to know is ‘how did he deduce that this referred to the Ansar?’ The Ansar do not even appear in the body of the text! The fact of the matter is this shameless narration suggests that the Prophet (s) was declaring that the participants of wedding functions were the most beloved in his eyes! As this reality is clear when one reads the text verbatim, Dr Muhsin Khan deemed it apt to deceptively alter the meaning by adding Ansar into the brackets!

Further evidence of the Prophet’s love and appreciation for female singing talent can be gauged from this tradition in Sunan Ibn Majah:

Anas bin Malik narrated that once Allah’s messenger (pbuh) was walking in Madina thereby he passed by (women) playing on Daf & singing saying : we are nearby sons of Najar * Muhammad is a dear neighbor.
Thus the prophet (s) replied: Allah’s know that I love you.

We read in Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 92p:

Narrated ‘Aisha:
that she prepared a lady for a man from the Ansar as his bride and the Prophet said, “O ‘Aisha! Haven’t you got any amusement (during the marriage ceremony) as the Ansar like amusement?”

Further details of the above cited tradition has been provided to us in Sunan Ibn Majah:

Ibn ‘Abbas said, ” ‘Aishah gave a girl relative of hers in marriage to a man of the Ansar. The Prophet (peace be on him) came and asked, ‘Did you send a singer along with her?’ ‘No,’ said ‘Aishah. The Messenger of Allah (peace be on him) then said, The Ansar are a people who love poetry. You should have sent along someone who would sing, ‘Here we come, to you we come, greet us as we greet you.’ ”


We have until now cited a small sample of what are deeply shameless Nasabi traditions that paint a very disrespectful image of the Prophet (s). The Salafis proudly proclaim that there understanding of the Prophet (s) is the most accurate and anything other than there thinking is that of innovators. We would like to ask these shameless creatures these questions:

  1. Was the residence of the Prophet (s) a house of singing?
  2. Was Rasulullah (s) present in a female gathering?
  3. Did Rasulullah (s) proclaim his love for female singers and the female attendees to a wedding?
  4. Was Rasulullah (s) requesting that a singer be booked for a wedding?
    The irony is on the issue of music there exists no one more rigorous on its opposition than Salafis! Hardcore Salafis even deem the recitations of nasheeds accompanied with music to be haram, and will refuse to attend functions wherein such bidah is being adhered to! What do they say of the above traditions that attest to the Prophet (s)’ love for music to the point that he insists that a singer is arranged for a wedding?
