1. عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم جَالِسًا فَسَمِعْنَا لَغَطًا وَصَوْتَ صِبْيَانٍ فَقَامَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَإِذَا حَبَشِيَّةٌ تُزْفِنُ وَالصِّبْيَانُ حَوْلَهَا فَقَالَ " يَا عَائِشَةُ تَعَالَىْ فَانْظُرِي " . فَجِئْتُ فَوَضَعْتُ لَحْيَىَّ عَلَى مَنْكِبِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَجَعَلْتُ أَنْظُرَ إِلَيْهَا مَا بَيْنَ الْمَنْكِبِ إِلَى رَأْسِهِ فَقَالَ لِي " أَمَا شَبِعْتِ أَمَا شَبِعْتِ" . قَالَتْ فَجَعَلْتُ أَقُولُ لاَ لأَنْظُرَ مَنْزِلَتِي عِنْدَهُ إِذْ طَلَعَ عُمَرُ قَالَ فَارْفَضَّ النَّاسُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم " إِنِّي لأَنْظُرُ إِلَى شَيَاطِينِ الإِنْسِ وَالْجِنِّ قَدْ فَرُّوا مِنْ عُمَرَ " . قَالَتْ فَرَجَعْتُ – الترمذي 49/ 4055
A'isha (ra) narrated the Messenger of Allah(saw) was sitting and we heard a scream and the voices of children. So he arose and saw it was an Ethiopian woman prancing around with children playing around her. So he said: "O A'isha, come (and) see." So I came, and I put my chin upon his shoulder and I began to watch her from between his shoulder and his head. He then said to me: "Have you had enough?" I kept saying: 'No' to see my status with him. Then Umar appeared. So they dispersed. So the Messenger (saw) said: "Indeed I see Satan among men and jinn have run from Umar." She said: "So I returned." (Tirmidhi 49:4055)
2. عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ دَخَلَ عَلَىَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَعِنْدِي جَارِيَتَانِ تُغَنِّيَانِ بِغِنَاءِ بُعَاثَ، فَاضْطَجَعَ عَلَى الْفِرَاشِ وَحَوَّلَ وَجْهَهُ، وَدَخَلَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ فَانْتَهَرَنِي وَقَالَ مِزْمَارَةُ الشَّيْطَانِ عِنْدَ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَقْبَلَ عَلَيْهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ ـ فَقَالَ "دَعْهُمَا" فَلَمَّا غَفَلَ غَمَزْتُهُمَا فَخَرَجَتَا. وَكَانَ يَوْمَ عِيدٍ يَلْعَبُ السُّودَانُ بِالدَّرَقِ وَالْحِرَابِ، فَإِمَّا سَأَلْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَإِمَّا قَالَ "تَشْتَهِينَ تَنْظُرِينَ". فَقُلْتُ نَعَمْ. فَأَقَامَنِي وَرَاءَهُ خَدِّي عَلَى خَدِّهِ، وَهُوَ يَقُولُ " دُونَكُمْ يَا بَنِي أَرْفِدَةَ ". حَتَّى إِذَا مَلِلْتُ قَالَ " حَسْبُكِ ". قُلْتُ نَعَمْ. قَالَ " فَاذْهَبِي ". (البخاري 13/2)
A'isha (ra) narrated Allah's Messenger (saw) came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Bu'ath (a story about the war between the two tribes of the Ansar, the Khazraj and the Aus, before Islam). The Prophet (saw) lay down and turned his face to the other side. Then Abu Bakr came and spoke to me harshly saying, "Musical instruments of Satan near the Prophet (saw)?" Allah's Messenger (saw) turned his face towards him and said, "Leave them." When Abu Bakr became inattentive, I signaled to those girls to go out and they left. It was the day of Eid, and the Black people were playing with shields and spears; so either I requested the Prophet (saw) or he asked me whether I would like to see the display. I replied in the affirmative. Then the Prophet (saw) made me stand behind him and my cheek was touching his cheek and he was saying, "Carry on! O Bani Arfida," till I got tired. The Prophet (saw) asked me, "Are you satisfied (Is that sufficient for you)?" I replied in the affirmative and he told me to leave. (Bukhari 13:2)
دعهم يا عمر، ليعلم اليهود أن في ديننا فسحة. وقال: إني بعثت بحنفية سمحة – أحمد 3.25431،24334
O Umar, Let them so the Jews may know that in our deen there is a fus'ha (entertainment, latitude, relaxation, etc), and he added: I was sent (as a prophet to preach for) a hanafiyya samha (a lenient deen). (Ahmed 24334،25431)
قَال فِي الرَّوْضِ: وَبِالتَّكَسُّرِ حَرَامٌ وَلَوْ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ – نهاية المحتاج 8/282-283، وحاشية الجمل 5/381، وحواشي التحفة 10/221Shafi'is used as evidence of permissibility the two hadiths mentioned in the above section reported on the authority of A'isha (ra). These hadiths mention the story of the Abyssinians who were dancing and playing with spears in the Prophet's mosque in his presence. The Prophet (saw) did not deter them or command them to stop dancing, rather he requested they should continue by saying: "دُونَكُمْ يَا بَنِي أَرْفِدَةَ – Carry on, O Bani Arfidah". When Umar (ra) entered he criticised them so the Prophet (saw) intervened directing Umar to leave them alone, as mentioned in the third hadith.
The author of al-Rawd stated: But (affectedly) bending the body is prohibited even in respect of women. (Ramli, Nihayat al-Muhtaj, Vol. 8, p. 282-283; Al-Jamal, Hashaya al-Jamal, Vol. 5, p. 381; Ibn Hajar al-Haytami, Hawashi al-Tuhfah, Vol. 10, p. 221)
