A woman will not attain the sweetness of Iman until she fulfils the rights of her husband

Question

Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “A woman will not taste the sweetness of faith until she fulfils the rights of her husband.”

 

Answer

Imams Hakim, Tabarani and Bazzar (rahimahumullah) have recorded this as part of a longer Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Jabal (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 172, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 90, volume: 20, Musnad Bazzar; Kashful Astar, Hadith: 1461)

 

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs. ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has also declared the narrators credible.

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 5 pg. 309)
