CURSED BY ALLAH TA’ALA
Question: Many Muslim women who wear the purdah niqaab drive vehicles. It has become a normal practice. The Ulama, the vast majority or perhaps 99% of them, are all silent on this issue. They remove the niqaab while driving. Everyone can see them. When they stop, they lower their niqaabs. What is the status of these women drivers in the Shariah? What does Islam say about women driving cars?
Answer (by Mujlisul Ulama):
Their status is that of the faasiqaat (flagrantly sinful) and faajiraat (immoral). They are the tinder of Jahannam. The women drivers of today are all signs of Qiyaamah. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“I take oath by The Being Who has sent me (as the Messenger) with the Haqq! This world will not end unless khasf, qazf and maskh occurs.” The Sahaabah asked: “And, when will that be?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When you see women in the saddles (driving), when singing women are in abundance, when false testimony becomes prevalent, and when homosexuality and lesbianism are perpetrated.”
The prohibition of “driving in saddles’ is not restricted to horses. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has mentioned this in the context of the Impending Hour of Qiyaamah. That is, in profusion women will be driving in the era in close proximity of Qiyaamah. We are today in that era of Aakhiruz Zamaan. This prediction has materialized and the satanic phenomenon of women driving is incremental.
Although the women who are observing mock ‘purdah’ believe themselves to be purdah-nasheen ladies, they dwell in satanic deception. The ‘surooj’ (saddles) mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) refers to the driving seat of modernday vehicles. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) lumped them together with homosexuals and lesbians. When these scoundrels begin to preponderate, then it heralds the close advent of Qiyaamah.
These driving faajiraat are absolutely shameless. They have eliminated every vestige of haya from their hearts. It is not possible for a Muslim woman who genuinely fears Allah Ta’ala to drive a car. Almost every step prior to the acquisition of a driving licence is lewd. The woman has to interact with males throughout the process before being granted the rubbish driving licence. We have seen such ‘burqah bibis’ standing in queues, intermingling with kuffaar males at traffic departments. They are tested by male traffic personnel.
The woman sits alone with him in the vehicle. Her husband or father is a veritable dayyooth for permitting this type of zina.
Aiding and abetting these women to flagrantly indulge in this type of zina and lewd public projection, are the ulama-e-soo’ – the juhala, moron molvis – which issue fatwas of ‘jawaaz’ (permissibility) for this type of swinery. The worst culprits and agents of Iblees in this regard are the Tablighi molvis who commit even the kufr of proclaiming ‘permissibility’ for women to travel without mahrams on tabligh excursions.
