DAILY ISLAMIC REMINDERS. Yaum Arba’a, 2nd day of Dhul-QA^DAH. (Wednesday, 1st of June, 2022). *_HOW TO PROTECT OUR MARRIAGES_*. BismilLah.
One of the most striking and most alarming hadiths that draw our attention to a major problem we may not be paying attention to is the following. Please read it carefully:
Allah’s Messenger SAW said:
“Iblis places his throne upon the sea; he then sends his agents, the evil jinns to the entire world on daily basis; the nearer to him in rank are those who are most notorious in creating dissension. One of them will return and says: “I killed, made convinced people to worship idols, commit shirk. I did so and so.” And he says: “You have done nothing.” Then one amongst them comes and says: “I did not spare so and so until I sowed the seed of discord between a husband and a wife.” The Satan goes near him and says: “You have done well. He then embraces him.” [Sahih Muslim].
So to Iblis (Satan/Shaytan/the accursed devil) there is an ultimate goal considered most beloved and pleasing to him. This is: breaking up between a husband and wife and creating disagreements between them.
We find this manifested in many cases. Sometimes a husband won’t stand listening to his wife, he’ll even find her sound annoying and keeps thinking about her complaining all the time, and how she doesn’t appreciate him and how she isn’t feminine enough and… so he starts despising her and losing his temper with her and vice versa.
You’ll find many stories like this. Many couples getting on each other’s nerves and suspicions arising between them…
A small and almost insignificant issue could blast a major fight and disagreement between couples that last for days or even months. Some ignorantly use *divorce* to threaten the other *Astaghfirullah*. Please note that we will be accountable as to how we handled our responsibilities as husband and wife. Do as you wish but pray that you don’t die in such habits abusing the trust ALLAH has bestowed on you to be a good sincere husband or wife. Always remember, sheitan is the one pulling the strings in your marriage so be patient always with your husband or wife and its a vice versa.
*_May ALLAH keep guiding our marriages and protect it from any satanic influences_*. Aameen.
