Female Students Standing For Their Teacher



What is the ruling in regards to female students standing up out of respect for their teacher?

Students should not stand up for their teachers, at the very least it is severely Makhruh (disliked). Anas stated that the Companions loved no one more then the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam), however, they did not rise for him when he entered a gathering because they knew that he hated that. The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever loves that men should present themselves standing up before him, let him take his place in the Fire. [1] The ruling in this issue applies equally to men and women. May Allaah guide us all to what pleases Him, and keep us far away from what displeases Him. May He grant us all beneficial knowledge and application of that knowledge. Indeed, He is the Most Generous, Most Gracious.
