The Muslim woman must be clever in her dealings with her husband because man – commonly – is pleased with kind phrases and appreciates form treatment. So if that comes from his life-partner that will have a greater effect. The clever lady should also hold away from all sorts of behavior that will offend her husband, and rid her of each and every kind of action that annoys him and try no longer to manipulate him. The man has the position of qawaam (protector and maintainer), and the accountability is his. Making his sense that he is falling brief insures situations may make him irritated and now not deal with his spouse well. One of them said: two "The best wife is the one who knows how to create harmony in her marriage and strikes a balance between obeying and respecting her husband and expressing her own strong personality."

What is it that a man wants from his wife? What is the primary emotion that husband wants from his wife? Well, the primary emotion according to modern psychologists we will bring the Quran and sunnah later, the primary emotion that men want from their wives is that of respect. By the way, we will bring the Quran and Sunnah to demonstrate this reality. Allah (SWT) said in the Quran that men are qawam over the women, and qawam means to be in charge of. This is the literal meaning of the Quran. Qawam means one who will take care of the other, qawam means one who will be the one in charge. So what is the one in charge? The one who is shown respect and we have that famous hadith and no doubt this hadith is misused and abused and we have to point this out as well. But it is the famous hadith that when once Muadh ibn Jabal came back from Syria and he entered the Masjid of the Prophet (PBUH) and he fell down in sajdah in front of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said to him YA MUADH WHAT ARE YOU DOING? WHO TOLD YOU TO PROSTRATE ME? WHY ARE DOING THIS? So Muadh ibn Jabal replied I returned from Syria, I found people prostrating to their Rabbis and to their elders out of respect and I felt you deserve this respect more than those priests and those rabbis. What did our Prophet (PBUH) say it’s a famous hadith I should say it’s an infamous hadith. All of you have heard of it before I just want to remember you. But we want to be clear here that it’s not my job to apologize on behalf of what the Prophet (SWT) said. It's not my job to cover the up the teachings. Our job is to teach those teachings whether a person likes them or not. What did the Prophet (PBUH) say? Verily Allah has forbidden any human to prostrate to another human hadith is in Bukhari, Muslim. Abu Dawood & in Tirmidhi (clearly authentic) verily Allah has forbidden any human to prostrate to another human but if he was to have allowed this, if a concession were to have been made; there is no concession: if a concession were to have been made, I would have told the wife to prostrate to her husband, out of what? the respect and duty she owes to him.

Now, what is this prostration? It is the prostration of respect and does this signifies is that the wife should give respect to the husband and what will the husband give back? The husband will give back that love, that cherishing, that nurturing that the wife graves.

As far as man is concerned “husband has to fear Allah his Lord, and not transgress the rights of his wife”. He should give her rights as Allah has enjoined upon him. He needs to recognize that people range and that what he knows, many people are ignorant of, and what he is ignorant of, many humans know. For him to have a wife who will translate for him and show him what will benefit him and how things are accomplished is higher for him than having anyone with him whom he can't trust. Knowledge can only be obtained through learning, and the way to study is via striving and working hard.

Advise him to try to control himself at times of anger, and not to get angry unless you have transgressed one of the sacred limits of Allaah. This is the kind of anger that is regarded as praiseworthy.


  1. You right sheik thank for your donation in Islam.

  3. Well,again I find the article very misogynistic because you didn't mention "All the hadiths"of the Beloved Prophet(s.a.w.w). i.e."The best of you are the ones who are the best to their wives". "Fear Allah regarding women." Most importantly you skipped a very important point here..and that doesn't come as a surprise,because after all, comparative religion is your speciality.. I am not a great daaee as you, but just to tell you what you missed, in Islam marriage involves "three people", not "two"...It involves "the husband", "the wife" AND "the offspring". You didn't mention this cardinal section. For example, here in the subcontinent(India, Pakistan, Bangladesh), Nepal, women put up with a lot of rubbish in the name of "respecting" their husbands.. But when it comes to the matter of their "children", then they are not just "a wife", but "a mother" also, and "as a mother" a woman doesn't tolerate anyone interfering with this unique capacity of hers, whosoever it may be, even if it be her husband. When a wife thinks like a mother, than she doesn't put up with any toxic behaviour that would rebuke her responsibilities towards her yes marriage is a relationship and "relationships" are "mutual". It's not about "two narcissists" with big giant egos trying to pull each others leg.. Respect is important but respect is "earned." Women are not "dumb", "driven cattle" that men are feeding, they are "humans", "conscious" and "feeling beings." You speak of the Prophet(s.a.w.w) then you must learn at first how he was towards his wives. The Prophet(s.a.w.w) on whose shoulders lied such an immense responsibility...was alongside the best husband to his wives also. Who can be more conscious of Allah than Him? This was a man who would wipe the tears of his wives with his very own you know that? And here in our somewhat "Muslim communities" women spend ages in emotional isolation, what to say of villages, even in urban areas, trying to deal with traumas intense emotional traumas, while the husband walks around being a "so called great muslim". The saddest part is that people have separated "consciousness of Allah" from "being conscious of His Creation". It's a strange anomaly and it's weakening the roots of the entire humanity. Let's ponder. And do some research. Thankyou!
    (To myself) "Wow I should have been a social activist rather than a dentist." Hehe...

    1. It's not the guys who dont empathize with their wives but mother, sister are the one who are guiding them in the wrong direction. But again out of respect guys continue to follow their guidance so maybe it's the women who need to relearn that every woman wants respect, love, and caring.

  4. My sister you are getting this all wrong , this lesson is about wife giving the required respect her husband deserves. Yes, some men depressed their wives in the name of respect but do you think Allah didn't know about it, do you think the wife will not be rewarded for her patient. This world is temporary, a very short time . It pains me to see women in the name of civilization will start questioning the Deen and making compromises .
    May Allah guide us. Ameen
    Thank you ��

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
