The importance of being dutiful to the husband

What is the authenticity

Husayn ibn Mihsan narrated that his aunt went to the Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) for some need. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked her, ‘Do you have a husband?’ She said, ‘Yes’. He asked ‘how are you with him?’ She replied, I am not negligent in obeying and serving him except for matters that I am not able to perform’. He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then said, ‘Watch [how well you treat him] for indeed, he is your Jannah or your Jahannam’.


This Hadith has been recorded in several Hadith collections with slight variation in the wording. Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has graded the Hadith authentic and Hafiz Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 341, Muwatta Imam Muhammad, Hadith: 951 and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 189)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
