A woman raising her voice over that of her husband

Q 5: What is the ruling on a wife who raises her voice over that of her husband when talking to him?

A: Married couples should speak to each other in a way that brings them closer and strengthens their relationship. Each of them should also avoid shouting at the other or addressing the other in a way they hate. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) says: ...and live with them honourably. (Part No. 19; Page No. 248) A wife should not shout at her husband, as Allah (Glorified be He) says: And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect) according to what is reasonable, but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them. However, a husband has to act wisely so arguments do not develop. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
