Whenever a Wife Harms Her Husband

Mu’adh bin Jabal (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Whenever a woman harms her husband in this world (that is without any due right), his wife among the (Houris in Jannah) says: ‘You must not harm him. May Allah destroy you! He is only a passing guest with you and is about to leave you to come to us.’”

[At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary:

The Islamic Shari’ah commands men to treat their wives with kindness. In the same spirit it commands wives to be obedient to their husbands. She can hurt the feelings of her husband by using indecent language, immodest conduct, immoral actions and making unfair demands, which are beyond his means. It is very common among women to tease and trouble their husbands by these three practices, except for those who are pious and fear Allah.

And Allah Knows Best!
