A narration regarding Safwan ibn Mu’attal (radiyallahu ‘anhu)

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

Sayyiduna ‘Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says, “A woman came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) while we were with him. She said: O Messenger of Allah, my husband, Safwan ibn al-Mu’attal, beats me when I pray, makes me break my fast when I keep a fast and he does not offer Fajr Salah until the sun rises.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked Safwan (radiyallahu ‘anhu), who was present, about what she had said. He replied, ‘O Messenger of Allah, as for her statement ‘He beats me when I pray’, she recites two Surahs [in Salah] and I have prohibited her [to do so]. He (Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: If one surah is recited [in Salah], that is sufficient for the people.

(Safwan radiyallahu ‘anhu continued) As for her saying ‘He makes me break my fast’, she fasts; I am a young man, I cannot restrain myself. The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said on that day, ‘A woman should not fast except with the permission of her husband.’

(Safwan radiyallahu ‘anhu said), As for her statement that I do not offer Fajr Salah until the sun rises, we are a people belonging to a class, and that [our profession of supplying water throughout the entire night] is already known about us. We do not awake until the sun [almost]  rises. He said: When you awake, offer your prayer.

One cause for the child being masculine or feminine

Question

I’ve heard that there is a Hadith that indicates something to the effect that a child will resemble the parent who first achieved climax during coitus. Is this true and from an authentic source?
