What are the rights of husband on wife and wife on husband? If a wife does not fulfil her husbands rights what is the ruling about that, as I have herard a hadis that '' Most of the women will go to hell because of disobeying thier husbands''. Please guide


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
