A father abusing one's wife badly

A: If the reality is as you mentioned, you are not obliged to obey your father (Part No. 25; Page No. 137) in this matter, since obedience is only in what is good. You should try to please him as much as you can and advise your wife to treat him kindly.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
