The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullah Al-Bhukārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Women Need to Be Looked After and Protected

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah said:

So this is Maryam–she needed someone to be her guardian and look after her . . . so how about women other than her?

And this is something well-known through trial and experience: women need [what they do] of being looked after and protected, what young boys does not. And whatever keeps her covered more and more protected, is [also] better [overall] for her.
