REGARDING THOSE WHO TRY TO PROVOKE THE SPOUSES AGAINST EACH OTHER
Question: What is the ruling on someone who tries to provoke the spouses against each other, if they are from among the wife's relatives?
Answer: It is Haraam to provoke a wife or turn her against her husband, whether the one who does this is a relative or not. It was related by Al-Nasa'y, Abu Dawud, and Ibn Hibban on the authority of Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Anyone who incites a woman against her husband or a slave against his master is not one of us.”* This is the wording of Abu Dawood.
May Allaah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
