Woman

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

The Prophet (Sallallahu wa alaihi wassalam) said that woman prevails exceedingly over the wise and intelligent, (While), on the other hand, ignorant man prevail over woman, for in them the fierceness of the animal is imprisoned.

They lack tenderness, kindness, and affection, because animality predominates over their (human) nature.

Love and tenderness are human qualities; anger and lush are animal qualities.

She (Women) is a ray of God, she is not that (earthly) beloved: she is creative, you must say she is not created.

- Mathnawi , 1/2531-35
