My scale and ‘Ali’s scale are equal in justice.

Everyone is more understanding than ‘Umar

كل أحد أفقه من عمر/كل الناس أفقه منك يا عمر

Everyone is more understanding than ‘Umar/everyone is more understanding than you, O ‘Umar.

 

Al Bayhaqi narrated it in his Sunan. The asl (basis) is:

ألا تغالوا في مهور النساء

Do not make the dowry of women exorbitant.

 

Al Bayhaqi labelled the isnad munqati’.[1]

Hafiz Zayn al Din al ‘Iraqi says, “Ibn Sakhbarah is in the isnad. His name is ‘Isa ibn Maymun. He is matruk.”[2]

Despite the many chains of this narration which contain that a woman back answered Sayyidina ‘Umar radiya Llahu ‘anhu, they are da’if or flawed. Moreover, they contradict Rasulullah’s salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam statement:

 

إن من يمن المرأة تيسير خطبتها و تيسير صداقها و تيسير رحمها

From the good fortune of a woman is her easy proposal, minimal dowry, and conceives easily.

 

The sanad of this hadith is Hassan.
