(يجب) وظاهر الآية أنه فرض نهر ج ٦ ٥ الديوث وهو الذي لا غيرة له على أهله
( حاشية السندي علي سنن النسائي)

صِنفان من أهل النار لم أرهما‏:‏ قوم معهم سياط كأذناب البقر يضربون بها الناس، ونساء كاسيات عاريات مميلات مائلات، رءوسهن كأسنمة البخت المائلة لا يدخلن الجنة، ولا يجدن ريحها، وإن ريحها ليوجد من مسيرة كذا وكذا‏”
‏(‏‏(‏رواه مسلم‏)‏‏)

وقال الإمام أبو النصر إسماعيل بن حماد الجوهري في كتابه الصحاح في اللغة: الديوث القنزع، وهو الذي لا غيرة له،
