Haram For Female To Ride Horse

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

women used to do it, in the time of the prophet (saw) it used to be a common thing, plus I did it couple years ago, father did not saying anything about it being forbidden and he is known in these issues. I guess if she is not moving around like a cowboy on it, and her moves have no sense of attraction, than it is okay. but long story short, im not studied so I hope you check with someone who is known.

As Salamu Alaykum

I remember years ago hearing that it is haram, because it was a big deal in Saudi Arabia(?). I always assumed it was makruh at the least, never knew in the Imami madhab it isn't haram (Not sure about our fellow madhabs). Nonethless, I'm reminded how in the popular account of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and Lady Fatima's (عليه السلام) wedding, Lady Fatima (عليه السلام) rides a horse (or a donkey?) to Imam Ali's (عليه السلام) home, with Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and the companions alongside her.

I wonder if this could be used an argument that it isn't haram also?

Salam you have misunderstood  the conversation because driving a car by women has been allowed in Shia countries especially in Iran & about riding horse or donkey & mule you can find women in rural areas who are riding donkey & etc but controversial issue is riding bike & bicycle by women in towns which due revealing their body for strangers  in public it's not premissible (allowed) which is  not defined as  Haram.

Wasalam, my apologies and yes you're right I completely remembered it wrong there! So regarding bicycles etc., is it Makruh at the most?
