Can someone shed some context on this hadith? What is meant by a "kick in the womb":

It was narrated from Aisha that Umm Habibah bint Jahsh who was married to ‘Abdur-Rahman bin ‘Awf suffered from Istihadah (non-mentrual vaginal bleeding) and did not become pure. Her situation was mentioned to the Messenger of Allah and he said: ‘That is not menstruation, rather it is a kick in the womb, so let her work out the length of the menses that she used to have, and stop praying, then after that let her perform Ghusl for every prayer.'”

  • On topics like this, please add more tags that are relevant, like [menstrual], etc. Jun 10, 2021 at 5:46

    I only requested the context of the hadith and I don't have enough reputation to make a menstrual tag which doesn't currently exist.

    Before creating a tag it is better to check whether it could fit in an existing one. we have a lot of one-time tags.

It was narrated from 'Aishah that Umm Habibah bint Jahsh who was married to 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Awf suffered from Istihadah (non-mentrual vaginal bleeding) and did not become pure. Her situation was mentioned to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and he said:

'That is not menstruation, rather it is a kick in the womb, so let her work out the length of the menses that she used to have, and stop praying (for that period of tie), then after that period of time), then after that let her perform Ghusl for every prayer.'"A kick in the womb: in other narrations means "A kick from Shaitan,", meaning that the Shaitan uses it to confuse her about her religious commitment.

Sunan an-Nasa'i https://sunnah.com/urn/1102110

The above hadith has answered your question. Here, "A kick in the womb", in other narrations means "A kick from Shaitan," meaning that the Shaitan uses it to confuse her about her religious commitment.

Explanation :-

The devil (satan) is always vigilant and never ceases attempts to mislead us from the straight path. Our beloved Prophet (PBUH) said in an authentic hadith that,

Jabir reported:

I heard Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) as saying: "The Satan is present with any one of you in everything he does; he is present even when he eats food..........." https://sunnah.com/muslim:2033d

The devil has full control over human's heart. Whenever we remember Allah, the satan withdraws. And this is how Satan deceives us in thousands of ways. Since Allah has given Muhammad(PBUH) such information about Satan and that's why he(PUBH) has uttered the above phrase which is "A kick in the womb" meaning that the Shaitan uses it(Istihadah) to confuse her about her religious commitment.

And Wallahu 'alam

    What is the source of "A kick in the womb", in other narrations means "A kick from Shaitan,"? This comment is not part of the hadith, but something the editor or translator added. This deviation was not reported via 'Aishah, but appears in ahadith in the remaining Sunan books and by imam Ahmad -all of which were qualified as da'if by al-Albani- and in al-Muwatta' as a a fatwa from ibn 'Umar.
