Hadith Info: Who Overpowers Whom

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The most perfect among the Mumineen in Emaan are those with the best character and the best among you are those whose character with their wives is best.[Mishkaat]

We learn from this hadith that the highest standard of good character is good treatment to the wife.

Allama Aaloosi (rehmatullah) has related in Tafseer “Rooh ul Ma’aani” that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Those husbands who are merciful are overpowered by their wives, while those who are hard hearted, who have bad character, overpower their wives.”

This means that the wives start speaking sharply, they become playful towards the husband and display coquetry, but they do maintain and fulfill their rights.
