[3] Husbands & Wives: Revealing Bedroom Secrets

عن أسماء بنت يزيد أنها كانت عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم والرجال والنساء قعود فقال

لعل رجلا يقول ما يفعل بأهله ولعل امرأة تخبر بما فعلت مع زوجها ؟

فأرم القوم ” أي سكتوا ” فقلت

إي والله يا رسول الله إنهن ليفعلن وإنهم ليفعلون


فلا تفعلوا فإنما ذلك مثل الشيطان لقي شيطانة في طريق فغشيها والناس ينظرون

Asmaa Bint Yazeed (radiyallaahu-anhaa) reported that she was with the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), whilst men and women were sitting; so he [the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wsallam)] said: ‘’Would a man say what he did with his wife (i.e. sexual relations) and would a woman inform (others) what she did with her husband?” The people remained silent (i.e. they did not respond to the Messenger); So I (Asmaa) said: “Yes, by Allaah! O Messenger of Allaah they (i.e. women) do that and they (i.e. men) do that.” He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “Do not do so; for indeed it is like a male devil meets a female devil in the road and have sex with her whilst the people are looking.” [Shaikh Albaani stated in Aadaab Az-Zafaaf page 144 footnote number 1 that this hadeeth was reported by Abu Dawood, 1/339 and it is Saheeh or the least Hasan]
