The punishment for not being just between one’s wives

How authentic is this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“When a man has two wives and he is not just between them, he will come on the Day of Qiyamah with one side drooping/mutilated”


Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imams Ibn Hibban and Hakim have declared the Hadith authentic. ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1141, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 4207, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 186)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
