Is there a Hadith or verse in the Holy Qur'an that says that a woman mustn't shout at her husband? I know this is not polite, but I would like to know if there's anything about this in the Holy Quran or Ahadeeth.

"وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال‏:‏ ‏"‏ لو كنت آمرًا أحدًا أن يسجد لأحد لأمرت المرأة أن تسجد لزوجها‏"‏" (رواه الترمذي وقال ‏:‏ حديث حسن صحيح‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏)

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "If I were to order anyone to prostrate himself before another, I would have ordered a woman to prostrate herself before her husband".


This hadeeth shows the importance of respect for the wife to her husband, including the shouting ...

I do not think there is clear evidence of the shouting in particular !!

Shouting during the talk is from respected .. !!

There is no Ayah nor Hadith directly answering this particular question AFAIK, although some scholars consider it "نشوز" (Nushooz / unobedience). There is a Hadith saying that the Prophet's wives would become angry with him sometimes, but I couldn't find out the form of their reactions.
