Top Six Qualities of a Good Husband - How to Be a Better Husband.

All praise be to Allah.

In this post we will discuss some good qualities of an ideal husband. A good husband should possess the following attributes:

1. He should be religiously committed.

A person who fears Allah and obeys all the commandments of Allah, follows the Sunnah of Muhammad (peace be upon him) should be given preference. A person who fears Allah will never hurt his wife.

Allah says in glorious Quran:

And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikun till they believe (in Allah Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater, etc.), even though he pleases you.(2:221).

2. He should be able to support a family.

It is not mandatory that a person must be a millionare but he should have sufficient wealth to support a family and provide for them. The Prophet said to Faatimah bint Qays , when she came to consult him about three men who had proposed marriage to her,

“As for Mu’aawiyah, he is a poor man who has no wealth…” (Narrated by Muslim, 1480).

From this we conclude that when Ftima bint-Qays came to consult Prophet about the three men who proposed to her, he told her that Mu’aawiyah is a poor man and is not ready to support a family.
3. He must be kind and loving.

A righteous husband is kind and loving. He cares for his family and is patient towards them. The Prophet said to Faatimah bint Qays, in the hadeeth quoted above, “As for Abu Jaham, his stick never leaves his shoulder”, referring to the fact that he used to beat women a lot.

We conclude that he (PBUH) told Faatimah bint-Qays that Abu Jahm is not patient towards women and used to beat women and a woman must look that her husband is kind and caring rather than marrying someone who is cruel to women.

4. Attractive and healthy.

A healthy person must be preferred. It is good if he is the sound of body and healthy, free of faults, sickness, etc., and not disabled or sterile.

The strong believer(in emaan and strength) is better and more beloved to Allâh than the weak believer, while there is good in both.

5. He must be knowledgeable.

He may not be as knowledgeable as great scholars of Islam but he must possess sufficient knowledge of Deen to protect his family from hellfire and guide them to the right path.

O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones (6:66)
6. He must be helping.

A good husband should be patient, truthful, trustworthy and supportive. H must not consider women as slaves and disrespect their existence.

Aisha, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), was asked, “What did the Prophet (pbuh) use to do in his house?” She replied,

“He used to keep himself busy serving his family (Bukhari)

In another report Aisha was reported to have said, “He did what one of you would do in his house.

He mended sandals and patched garments and sewed.” (Adab Al-Mufrad graded sahih by Al-Albani)

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
