Offering Fajr Salah in congregation after marriage

Question

What is status of following narration?

تزوج الحارث بن حسان وكانت له صحبة وكان الرجل إذ ذاك إذا تزوج تخدر أيامًا فلا يخرج لصلاة الغداة، فقيل له: أتخرج وإنمـا بنيت بأهلك في هذه الليلة؟ قال: والله إن امرأةً تمنعني من صلاة الغداة في جمع لامرأة سوء

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. Simak ibn Harb (rahimahullah) relates: “Harith ibn Hassan (radiyallahu ‘anhu), who was a Sahabi got married. It was the norm back then, that when a man would marry, he would keep in seclusion for a few days and not leave for Fajr Salah. [Harith radiyallahu ‘anhu] was asked, ‘Are you leaving the home whereas you have just married [last] night?’ He replied, ‘By Allah, A woman who prevents me from offering Fajr Salah in congregation, is an evil woman.'”

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 3324)

 

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 41)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
