I’ve read this Hadith in ‘Al-Risala’ and according to Maulana Wahiduddin this Hadith tells us about rich women rent poor women to deliver children for them. I think it is the best explanation of Hadith. We can see easily this incident.
Thank you for your contribution.
However, in my opinion, just as the words “الحفاة” ,”العراة” etc. in the previously mentioned sign in the narrative refer specifically to the Arabs, as implied by the prefixed “ال” (definite article) in the case of these words, in the same manner, the definite article with the word “الأمة” should be interpreted to imply reference to the existing “slave girl”.
Nevertheless, I do submit that there can be a difference of opinion in the interpretation of such signs.
