Allah Ta’ala will not cast a merciful glance towards a woman who complains of her husband


What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Allah Ta’ala will certainly not cast His glance [of mercy] towards a woman who in spite of her dependence on her husband, complains of him!”



This narration is recorded in the following Hadith collections on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma):

  1. As Sunanul Kubra of Imam Nasai, Hadith: 9086
  2. Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 190
  3. Musnad Bazzar; Al Bahruz Zakkhar, Hadith: 2349
  4. Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 14184


Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs. ‘Allamah Mundhiri and ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahumallah) have stated that Imam Bazzar (rahimahullah) has recorded the Hadith with two chains and the narrators of one of these chains are reliable.

(Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 58, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 4 pg. 309)
