Spouses cursing one another


232

Q 5: What is the consequence if a man curses his wife or a wife curses her husband? Do they become forbidden to each other in regard to marriage?


A: Neither of them will become forbidden to the other as a result of cursing and it does not result in divorce. However, his cursing her or her cursing him is a major sin and it is obligatory to make Tawbah (repentance to Allah) and ask Allah for forgiveness for what they have done. They also have to ask each other’s forgiveness for cursing. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
