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 .. !!

  • This hadith appears illogical. Prophet would only command people (regardless of gender) to prostrate only in front of Allah , let far go of men and women. Apr 10, 2023 at 17:08

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.
