Q. Will it be permissible for my wife to learn driving? In times of emergency her driving could save a life. She will drive only if ever an emergency develops. Is there any scope in the Shariah for her to learn to drive?

A. There is no such scope. The argument of ‘emergency’ is shaitaani deception. There are thousands of men and women where you live, who do not own cars and who cannot drive. There are billions of men and women on earth who cannot drive and who do not own vehicles. What will they do in times of emergency? And, what will happen during an emergency if the engine malfunctions and the car does not start? What will happen in an emergency if your wife is not present, and what will happen during the imaginary emergency if your wife is bedridden? There are numerous mishaps which could develop during the hallucinated emergency which could prevent your wife and even yourself from driving the vehicle. The problem is that due to Imaani deficiency and engrossment in the dunya, people are forgetful of Allah Ta’ala. They lack tawakkul (trust) in entirety , hence shaitaan adorns for them negative thinking and mirages. A Muslim should not be negative in his thinking and attitude. Daily make dua for aafiyat (protection). Be obedient to Allah Ta’ala, then Insha-Allah, there will be no such emergencies for which there will be no arrangement. Muslims should not be like the kuffaar whose brains gravitate to haraam and najaasat for fulfilment of needs. Just for acquiring a driving licence a woman has to subject herself to zina. How can a husband ever tolerate the pillaging of his wife’s haya and purdah? Only a dayyooth is bereft of ghairah (honour). Supplicate to Allah Ta’ala and stay far away from whatever the Shariah has forbidden. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Whatever is by Allah is obtainable only by way of obedience.”

Question: Many Muslim women who wear the purdah niqaab drive vehicles. It has become a normal practice. The Ulama, the vast majority or perhaps 99% of them, are all silent on this issue. They remove the niqaab while driving. Everyone can see them. When they stop, they lower their niqaabs. What is the status of these women drivers in the Shariah? What does Islam say about women driving cars?

Answer (by Mujlisul Ulama):

Their status is that of the faasiqaat (flagrantly sinful) and faajiraat (immoral). They are the tinder of Jahannam. The women drivers of today are all signs of Qiyaamah. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“I take oath by The Being Who has sent me (as the Messenger) with the Haqq! This world will not end unless khasf, qazf and maskh occurs.” The Sahaabah asked: “And, when will that be?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When you see women in the saddles (driving), when singing women are in abundance, when false testimony becomes prevalent, and when homosexuality and lesbianism are perpetrated.”

The prohibition of “driving in saddles’ is not restricted to horses. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has mentioned this in the context of the Impending Hour of Qiyaamah. That is, in profusion women will be driving in the era in close proximity of Qiyaamah. We are today in that era of Aakhiruz Zamaan. This prediction has materialized and the satanic phenomenon of women driving is incremental.

Although the women who are observing mock ‘purdah’ believe themselves to be purdah-nasheen ladies, they dwell in satanic deception. The ‘surooj’ (saddles) mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) refers to the driving seat of modernday vehicles. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) lumped them together with homosexuals and lesbians. When these scoundrels begin to preponderate, then it heralds the close advent of Qiyaamah.

These driving faajiraat are absolutely shameless. They have eliminated every vestige of haya from their hearts. It is not possible for a Muslim woman who genuinely fears Allah Ta’ala to drive a car. Almost every step prior to the acquisition of a driving licence is lewd. The woman has to interact with males throughout the process before being granted the rubbish driving licence. We have seen such ‘burqah bibis’ standing in queues, intermingling with kuffaar males at traffic departments. They are tested by male traffic personnel.

The woman sits alone with him in the vehicle. Her husband or father is a veritable dayyooth for permitting this type of zina.

Aiding and abetting these women to flagrantly indulge in this type of zina and lewd public projection, are the ulama-e-soo’ – the juhala, moron molvis – which issue fatwas of ‘jawaaz’ (permissibility) for this type of swinery. The worst culprits and agents of Iblees in this regard are the Tablighi molvis who commit even the kufr of proclaiming ‘permissibility’ for women to travel without mahrams on tabligh excursions.
