Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith - 9.148

Narrated Abu Huraira

Allah's Apostle said, "While I was sleeping, I saw myself standing at a well over which there was a bucket. I pulled out from it as many buckets of water as Allah wished, and then Ibn Abi Quhafa (Abu Bakr) took the bucket from me and pulled out one or two full buckets, and there was weakness in his pull--may Allah forgive him. Then the bucket turned into a very large one and 'Umar bin Al-Khattab took it. I have never seen any strong man among the people, drawing water with such strength as 'Umar did, till the people (drank to their satisfaction and) watered their camels to their fill; whereupon the camels sat beside the water."

Salamun alaykum,
this hadeeth is not sahi. Umar would look at the Holy Prophet´s (saw) wives while they were answering the call of nature?? Also he would know better than the Holy prophet (saw) by instructing him or teaching him about how his wives should be veiled?? Not only was the Holy Prophet (saw) instructed by Umar, he also did not tell his wives to cover themselves?? The worst part of this hadeeth is that Umar wanted a verse to be revealed in favour of hijab and out of no where the verses of Al Hijab were revealed! What mockery and blasphemy is this! Audhubillah...
