Hadith on Kufran: Beware ingratitude to husbands, wives, spouses

Asma’ reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, passed by a group of women in the mosque one day. The Prophet waved with his hand to greet them with peace and he said, “Beware of ingratitude to those who bless you. Beware of ingratitude to those who bless you.” One of the women said, “O Messenger of Allah, I seek refuge in Allah, O Prophet of Allah, from being ungrateful to Allah.” The Prophet said, “Rather, one of you will be widowed for a long time throughout her middle years, then Allah provides her with a husband and he benefits her with a child, the joy of her life. Then, she gets very angry and she swears by Allah, saying: I never had one good moment with you! That is ingratitude to the blessings of Allah. That is ingratitude to those who bless her.”

عن أَسْمَاء أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَرَّ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ يَوْمًا وَعُصْبَةٌ مِنْ النِّسَاءِ قُعُودٌ فَأَلْوَى بِيَدِهِ إِلَيْهِنَّ بِالسَّلَامِ قَالَ إِيَّاكُنَّ وَكُفْرَانَ الْمُنَعَّمِينَ إِيَّاكُنَّ وَكُفْرَانَ الْمُنَعَّمِينَ قَالَتْ إِحْدَاهُنَّ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ يَا نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ مِنْ كُفْرَانِ اللَّهِ قَالَ بَلَى إِنَّ إِحْدَاكُنَّ تَطُولُ أَيْمَتُهَا وَيَطُولُ تَعْنِيسُهَا ثُمَّ يُزَوِّجُهَا اللَّهُ الْبَعْلَ وَيُفِيدُهَا الْوَلَدَ وَقُرَّةَ الْعَيْنِ ثُمَّ تَغْضَبُ الْغَضْبَةَ فَتُقْسِمُ بِاللَّهِ مَا رَأَتْ مِنْهُ سَاعَةَ خَيْرٍ قَطُّ فَذَلِكَ مِنْ كُفْرَانِ نِعَمِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَذَلِكَ مِنْ كُفْرَانِ الْمُنَعَّمِينَ
