Is it true that the prophet SAW Selim said that if a woman is a leader of the country is going to go to ruin?

00:00:08--> 00:00:46

Well, that is a paraphrase of something found in Bahati, the prophets of the law who Allah He was seldom said that no nation will prosper, who puts his leader as a woman. Now, this hadith our scholars have different over it. Some have said that this is a specific reference to Persia at the time. And in fact, it's been hijacked. The famous commentator mentions is that this is not a filthy ruling that can be applied to every scenario and circumstance.

So it

is as if the process of saying this nation, and he's not saying no nation, this nation that has now appointed this lady, as its ruler will not succeed. And in fact, that's exactly what happened. She turned out to be the last princess of Iran, the last Queen of Iran, of a Persian Empire, the sassanid Empire should say, and the assassin Empire collapsed after that, and eventually the Muslims conquered it.
