Muhammad says touching a woman is worse than being stabbed in the head with an iron needle

In this glorious hadith, Muhammad says that touching a non-mahram (i.e., a marriageable) woman is worse than being stabbed in the head with an iron needle.

Al-Albani explains:

And in the hadith is a severe warning to one who touches a woman who is not permissible for him. And in it is proof of the prohibition on shaking hands with women, because this no doubt is included in touching.

(Al-Silsilah al-Sahihah 1/448)

Muhammad explicitly says “I do not shake hands with women.” (Nasa’i 4186). He never touches a woman’s hand, except for his slaves of course:

“….And the hand of Allah's Messenger ﷺ did not touch any woman's hand except the hand of that woman his right hand possessed (i.e. his captives or his lady slaves).” (Bukhari 7214)

I find Bukhari 7214 particularly rich, in that Muhammad has no problem enslaving women, but his high moral character won’t allow him to shake a woman’s hand.

Unfortunately, Islamic law is based on the presumption that Muslim men cannot be expected to exert basic self-control.

And that is why every Islamic school of jurisprudence, with no exception, forbids men and women from shaking hands. (Hanbali and Hanafi schools allow it for the elderly.) (Kuwaiti Encyclopedia of Fiqh 37/359-360)

Abu ’l-Qāsim Sulaymān ibn Ayyūb ibn Muṭayyir al-Lakhmī al-Ṭabarānī was one of the most important hadith scholars of his age.

He is known primarily for three works on hadith:

  • al-Muʿjam al-Kabīr – from which he excluded the traditions of Abu Hurayra
  • al-Mu'jam al-Awsat – which contains traditions from Abu Hurayra
  • al-Mu'jam as-Saghir – which gave a hadith from each of his masters.

this is why i question things.

The only conclusion i came up with on why he said this is, to keep self-purified

I'm starting to think some of these Hadiths are fake bro.

I could agree with you but then we’d both be wrong

The elucidation of this hadeeth is touching women who isn't permissible for you is greater than being stabbed in the head with an iron needle.

The hadeeth is about the greatness of the sin.

That is why I don't shake hands with women. First minutes are always awkward
 
La taqrabu zina. Do not come near adultery, its an injuction from the Quran.

Touching a womans hand thats not permissible may lead to step by step towards adultery.

The Prophet was the best in character and would warn us about all things
