What should one do if her husband is so aggressive and dominant? I’m asking on behalf of my friend

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If the sister is facing marital issues she is advised to seek professional marital counseling from a qualified Scholar or a practicing Muslim marriage counselor.

The following are a few Ahadeeth about how The Prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H would treat his wives. These Ahadeeth may be shared with the husband.

  1. Abu Hurairah narrated that The Messenger of Allah said: “The most complete of the believers in faith, is the one with the best character among them. And the best of you are those who are best to your women.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1162)

2. It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbas that: the Prophet said: “The best of you is the one who is best to his wife, and I am the best of you to my wives.”(Sunan Ibn Majah Hadith 2053)

  1. ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-‘as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said, “The world is but a (quick passing) enjoyment, and the best enjoyment of the world is a pious and virtuous woman”. (Riyad as-Salihin 280)

Only Allah knows best
