Living harmoniously as spouses Part 2

Dear beloved brethren! Know you that the capital for a marital life is love & mercy. Hence, let’s ensure that this capital is passionately preserved.

As none is perfect except Allāh, spouses are urged towards relating with each other in the best manner.


O noble wife! Fear Allāh and respect your husband. Strive hard towards making him happy & comfortable always.  Listen to what ‘Āishah (may Allāh be pleased with her) has said perhaps you can learn a lesson therefrom: ”O you some women! If you knew the right of your husbands over you, you would clean the dust of your husbands ‘ feet with your cheeks.”

O responsible husband! Fear Allāh in your wife by treating her well & with kindness. Know you that your wife has been created weak & you can not truly find pleasure and comfort from her unless you are patient with her.

Here is a list of golden advices for responsible & caring men:

The role of a husband over his wife is an obligation and not an honour, a burden and not a treasure;

No woman is free from defects. So don’t compare your wife with other wives. If you dislike something in her, you will definitely like some other things;

Beautify yourself for your wife as you will want her to do so for you;

Help her in home chores;

Respect her parents;

Crack useful & true jokes with her and create optimum time to sit with her for deliberation;

Join your wife to perform some voluntary acts of worship at home (Tahajjud for an instance);

Avoid suspicious thoughts and let your (Ghīrah) jealousy for your wife be moderate & balanced;

Refer to a pious and trustworthy scholar when any disagreement could not be resolved between you both;

Supplicate and turn to Allāh in humility for successful marital life.  See Nabil Hāmid Al-Ma’z, _Kaifa nasluk tariqa Al-Jannah p.162_

Today’s Task

Resolve any misunderstanding between you and your partner today. Remember this is the month of pardon and forgiveness;

Tell your partner that you have forgiven and forgotten his or her faults just as you will want Allāh to do same for you.

Humble Supplication

O Allāh! Forgive both our excesses and inadequacies in our marital life, O You the Merciful.
