 Pearls of Wisdom: No.53

“Food for the Soul”

 

SUBJECT:  BEING GOOD TO YOUR WIVES

 

Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

"…And live with them in kindness…" (Quran 4:19)

 

“And among His signs is that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find contentment in them, and He has instilled between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for people who reflect”. (Quran 30:21)

 

The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said,

 

“The most perfect of believers in belief is the best of them in character.  The best of you are those who are the best to their women.” (Hadith Tirmidhi)

 

"A believing man should not hate a believing woman.  If he dislikes something in her character, he should be pleased with some other trait of hers."  (Hadith Muslim)

 

Note:  A husband is required to treat his wife with affection, respect her feelings, and show her kindness and consideration. It is the right of the wife to be treated well in all aspects of daily life. The husband should interact with her in a well-mannered way with a respectable attitude, sweet words and a smiling face. Being kind is indeed a pillar of strength that will fortify any marriage relationship. Remember being kind and respectful is more important that be ing right! A single harsh word can cause irreversible harm whereas a polite word could make her day!
