Essential Pearls: Regarding Parents Who Are Tried With Cursing Their Children

Question: We have a few questions here. The first one says: Some of the mothers are tried with cursing their children. This habitually flows from their tongues; i.e., revilement and cursing. What is the ruling regarding this?
Answer by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee (hafidhahullaah): Revilement and cursing is not permissible, even if it be from the father or the mother. The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) warned against this. And there shall come (the Hadeeth):
The believer is not one who reviles, curses, is vulgar, or obscene.
The one who curses will not be considered truthful with Allah on the Day of Standing. So it is obligatory to avoid and beware of that. And if the cursing is unwarranted then it goes back to the one who uttered it, as we mentioned to you regarding the Hadeeth a little while ago. So it is obligatory upon the woman, as well as the father and the Muslims in general to beware of cursing.
