Girls Should not read Soorah An-Noor!?

Question
Assalamu Allikum. I read somewhere that there is a hadith that tells girls that they should not read the tafser of Surah Yusuf
Ali Ibn Abi Talib (AS) reportedly said, “Do not teach your wives, Surah Yusuf, and do not let them recite it, because they contain temptations, teach them Sura Nur because they contain spiritual guidance.
Is this hadeeth authentic and a sahih hadith in the matter?

Perfect praise to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that no one is worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) is his slave and his messenger.

This statement is not authentically attributable to “Ali, may Allah be pleased with him! This is a false report released by some people who are followers of religious innovations known to have lied. The comment mentioned about Soorah Yoosuf [Qur’an Ch. 12] that “it is a source of Fitnah (temptation)” is indicative of blatant impudence and rudeness towards the Qur’an.

We do not know of any authentic report relating the authority of the Prophet’s companions, sallallahuar’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention), forbidding to teach Muslim men and women a specific chapter of the Qur’an. On the contrary, there are genuinely told reports urging Muslims to teach women a specific chapter, which is Soorah An-Noor [Quran Ch. 24]. The relevant report in this regard has been conveyed through different storytelling channels, which are collectively authentic. It was reported that Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, may Allah be pleased with him, wrote to some provinces saying, “Teach your wives, Soorah An-Noor”. This report was cited by Abu ‘Ubayd in his book Fadhaa’il Al-Quran Abdur-Razzaaq in his Musannaf, Saeed ibn Mansoor in his Sunan and Tafser, Al-Haakim in Al-Mustadrak and Al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab Al -Eemaan. Similar reports have also been reported under the authority of other companions.

It should be noted that some scholars have denounced the person who does not like to listen to Soorah An-Noor, because it contains verses on punishment for adultery and fornication, while intentionally listening to Soorah Yoosuf and making women listen to her. . arouse sexual desire and evoke the subject of infatuation and the state of infatuated people. What is being denounced here is this person himself because of his corrupt intent and purpose, not the learning of Soorah Yoosuf.

Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, who pitied him, wrote: “Some people like to listen to this chapter, especially for its mention of the infatuation and the behavior related to it, because they are themselves inclined to these things. questions and want to have fun. ” Their sinful desires. Some even deliberately make women and others listen to him because of their perverse inclination toward observance … and they choose not to listen to Soorah An-Noor’s verses on the punishment of sin and prohibition. in this regard … The Exalted, says (which means): {And we send from the Quran what is healing and mercy to the believers, but it does not increase the unjust except in the loss.} [Quran 17:82] … So whoever loves to listen in this chapter [Yoosuf] to stimulate such feelings of sin and hate to listen to it [An-Noor] so as not to restrict or repel such feelings; he is himself helpless. “[Majmoo ‘Al-Fataawa]

Allah knows best.
