In Islam, the Majority in Hell are Women
Sahih Al Bukhari: Vol. 1:28, 301
This is one of the clearest evidences of the inequality of men and women under Islam.
Mohammed said, "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers are women."
Arabic of the Hadith that Majority in Hell are women.
I can see the words, “hell” (النار) (Al-Nar); the word “most” or “majority” اکثر (ak-sar or ak-thar) ; the word “dwellers”/ “inhabitants” – اهلها ( Ahle-ha) and the word for women – النساء . (Al - Nisa) (We have these words or forms of these Arabic words in Farsi.)
The Majority of dwellers in hell are women, according to many of the Hadith traditions of Muhammad:
Hadith, Sahih Al Bukhari volume 1, book 2, number 28http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/002.sbt.html#001.002.028
These Hadiths (Ahadith – احادیث plural in Arabic and Farsi) that say the majority of dwellers in hell are women.
Sahih Bukhari: Vol. 1:28, 301; Vol. 2:161; Vol. 7:124-126.
And “Sahih” means “correct”, “right”, “genuine” – these are some of the strongest traditions of Muhammad, the founder and prophet of Islam.
See more of this documented here, which is also where I got the Arabic of this Hadith:
