Narrated / Authority of:
Sulaiman bin Amr bin Ahwas
"My father told me that he was present on the Farewell pilgrimage with the Messenger of Allah (saw). He praised and glorified Allah, and reminder and exhorted (the people). The he said: `I enjoin good treatment of women, for they are prisoners with you, and you have no right to treat them otherwise, unless they commit clear indecency. If they do that, then forsake them in their beds and hit them, but without causing injury or leaving a mark if they obey you, then do not seek means of annoyance against them. You have rights over your women and you women have rights over you. Your rights over you women are that they are not to allow anyone whom you dislike on treat on your bedding (furniture), not allow anyone whom you dislike to enter your houses. And their right over you are that should treat them kindly with regard to their clothing and food.` "
