Hadith on Pride: The Prophet rebukes Hafsa for insulting Safiyyah’s Jewish lineage

| November 8, 2012

Anas ibn Malik reported: Safiyyah mentioned that Hafsa said to her, “O daughter of a Jew!” So she started weeping. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, entered while she was weeping and he said, “Why are you crying?” She said, “Hafsa said to me that I am a daughter of Jew.” The Prophet said, “Verily, you are the daughter of a prophet, your uncle is a prophet, and you are married to a prophet, so what does she have to boast over you?” Then the Prophet said, “Fear Allah, O Hafsa!”

عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ بَلَغَ صَفِيَّةَ أَنَّ حَفْصَةَ قَالَتْ بِنْتُ يَهُودِيٍّ فَبَكَتْ فَدَخَلَ عَلَيْهَا النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَهِيَ تَبْكِي فَقَالَ مَا يُبْكِيكِ فَقَالَتْ قَالَتْ لِي حَفْصَةُ إِنِّي بِنْتُ يَهُودِيٍّ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّكِ لَابْنَةُ نَبِيٍّ وَإِنَّ عَمَّكِ لَنَبِيٌّ وَإِنَّكِ لَتَحْتَ نَبِيٍّ فَفِيمَ تَفْخَرُ عَلَيْكِ ثُمَّ قَالَ اتَّقِي اللَّهَ يَا حَفْصَةُ
