Wisdom and being Clever

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi


Is there a hadeeth in bukhari shareef which says women have difienct intellect to men. does this mean that men are more clever than women. What is the context, meaning and wisdom of this hadeeth e pak. please provide a detailed answer jazakallah


Wisdom is a gift from Allah Ta’ala. Normally men are much wiser than women. This is what is mentioned in the hadith you are enquiring about.

Being clever is something else. Women can sometimes be cleverer than men. In the same hadith the words are ‘more overpowering for men’ this is due to their clever nature.

This should be taken as a compliment for our respectful ladies. They have the power to change their partner for the better, and they should use that power to develop piety into their husbands.
