IrsyadHadith 101




Is the hadith regarding gold umbrella sahih?


Alhamdulillah, praise and thanks to Allah for the countless blessings He has blessed us all with. Blessings and salutations to the Prophet Muhammad PBUH, his wives, his family, companions and all those that follow his teachings to the day of judgement.

Regarding gold umbrella, there is no mention of it in the Quran or hadith. This means, gold umbrella is just a fabrication and an untrue perspective. It is true that there are verses of the Quran which mentioned marriage and the relationship between husband and wife, however, there is no mention gold umbrella. The same for in hadiths, the advantages of a wife obeying her husband with patience in facing the trials of marriage. An example of a verse of the Quran that narrates the relationship of a husband and wife is:

  • Allah SWT states:

فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّهُ

 “So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard.”

Surah al-Nisa’ (34)

  • In a hadith from Abu Hurairah RA, the Prophet PBUH said:

إِذَا صَلَّتِ الْمَرْأَةُ خُمُسَهَا، وَصَامَتْ شَهْرَهَا، وَحَصَّنَتْ فَرْجَهَا، وَأَطَاعَتْ بَعْلَهَا، دَخَلَتْ مِنْ أَيِّ أَبْوَابِ الجَنَّةِ شِئْتِ

“If a woman performs the 5 daily prayers, fast in the month (of Ramadhan), protect her chastity and obey her husband, she will enter paradise from whichever door she wishes,”

Narrated by Ibn Hibban (9/471)


To conclude, there are a lot other verses of the Quran and hadiths which narrate the advantages of married life and the relationship of husband and wife but there is not a single verse or hadith which mention the gold umbrella as claimed.
