Another Hadith about women sitting on saddles

Could you verify this narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“It is not allowed for a woman who believes in Allah to place her private part on a saddle”


The Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Al Asrarul Marfu’ah, pg. 392 and Al Masnu’, Hadith: 451)

Note: The Fuqaha who opine that it is reprehensible (makruh) for women to ride horses have cited various other reasons and proofs to substantiate this. I have merely answered your question regrading the authenticity of the Hadith. This should therefore not be viewed as a Fiqh ruling.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
