MUSLIM women not leaving the house

It is reported from Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) while addressing his Mubarak wives on the occasion of Hajjatul Wadaa said: “After this (the rites of Hajj) remain in your homes (i.e. do not leave your homes without a valid need).” Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu anhu) mentions that it was on account of this statement of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) that Hadhrat Zainab binte Jahsh and Saudah (radhiyallahu anhuma) never left their homes for even nafl Hajj (though the other Azwaaj-e-Mutahharaat performed nafl Hajj). Hadhrat Zainab and Saudah (radhiyallahu anhuma) would say: “After hearing this from Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), we never mounted a conveyance thereafter.”
