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.”
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)
