What is the consequence of degrading the husband in the presence of his children/ family and outsiders.
Respecting the husband is essential in Islam.
The Hadiths on this topic are numerous and very stern.
Consider the following:
1. Sayyidatuna ‘Aishah (radiyallahu’anha) reports that she asked Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam):
‘Who has the greatest right upon a woman?’
Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) replied: ‘Her husband.’
(Musnad Bazzar and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 150)
Declared sound (hasan) by ‘Allamah Mundhiri
(Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 53)
2. Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu’anhuma) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:
‘Allah does not look [with mercy] to a woman who is ungrateful to her husband, especially since she is not independent of him.’
(Sunan Nasai, Musnad Bazzar and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 190 with an authentic chain. Also see Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 58)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
