Gheera – Protective Jealousy 

Men who do not have (Gheera) protective jealousy over their wives, sisters & daughters are Dayyooths & prohbited from jannah

The Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam(may Allah exalt his mention), said: “Allah The Almighty will not look at three persons on the Day of Resurrection: a person who is undutiful to his parents; a masculine woman; and the Dayyooth.” [Saheeh]

lbn a|—Qayyim, rahimahullaah, said, “And the dayyooth (the man with no jealousy over the woman and his family) is the most vile of Allah’s creation, and Junnah is forbidden for him, (because of his lack of Gharyah—jealousy)

Al-Ghazaali may Allah have mercy upon him said, “lf a person lacks proper manly fervor, he is unlikely to react appropriately towards any assault against his womenfolk or wife. He will submissively bear humiliation from evil people and will have low se|f—esteem. This may cause such a person to lack any feeling of protective jealousy regarding his womenfolk. In this case, his offspring may become adulterated. Therefore it is said: ‘Once protective jealousy dies down in the men of a particular nation, the chastity of its women will be weakened.”

(PS: The Mass Media Encourages the Dayyooth)
