Hadith #1

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَلِیُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِیمَ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِیِّ عَنِ السَّکُونِیِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ ع قَالَ عَلِیٌّ ع مَنْ أَطَاعَ امْرَأَتَهُ کَبَّهُ اللَّهُ عَلَی وَجْهِهِ فِی النَّارِ قِیلَ وَ مَا تِلْکَ الطَّاعَهُ قَالَ تَطْلُبُ إِلَیْهِ أَنْ تَذْهَبَ إِلَی الْحَمَّامَاتِ وَ إِلَی الْأَعْرَاسِ وَ إِلَی النَّائِحَاتِ وَ الثِّیَابِ الرِّقَاقِ فَیُجِیبُهَا.

1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his ancestors that Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said, “A person who obeys his wife will be thrown headlong into Hell.” Imam (a.s.) was asked what he meant by obedience of wife. He replied, “Here obedience means that the wife asks her husband to accompany her to bath, weddings, sermons etc. while she hasn’t covered her body properly, and he agrees.”
