Abud Darda’s (radiyallahu ‘anhu) advise to his spouse

Question

Could you mention the reference for this?

Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu) told his wife Ummud Darda, “If I become angry then try to please me. If you become angry I will [say things that will] please you. Were we not to act this way, how quickly would we be separated!”

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his book ‘Rawdatul ‘Uqala.

(Rawdatul ‘Uqala, pg. 72, Tarikh Dimashq, vol. 70 pg. 152)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
