The love of the Hurs for their men of the Dunya

Question

Is the following narration authentic?

‘No woman offends her husband in this world but his wife among the hurs says, ‘Do not offend him, may Allah curse you, for he is only with you for a short time and soon he will leave you and come to us.’

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith as sound (hasan).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1174. Also see Targhib, Hadith: 2905)

 

The part in bold, should not be understood in the literal sense. Rather it is an expression of dismay without the literal meaning being intended. This was a common usage of the Arabs.

(Refer: Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 1184)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
