A Gift To The Husband And Wife” Written by Maulana Muhammad Ashraf Ali Thanvi r.a. The present contain a collection of Ahadith on the rights of both spouses (Husband and wife) in English language . An Islamic guide line for married life.
Hakeem bin Muaaviyah (r.a) narrates from his father that he asked Rasulullah (s.a.w) about the rights of wives against their husbands. He replied:
- When you eat, feed her as well.
- When you clothe yourself, clothe her as well.
- don’t hit her on the face. In other words, don’t hit her in spite of it being her fault. Beating without any valid reason is obviously not permitted on any part of her body.
- Don’t curse her.
- Don’t sever relationship with her except within the house. (in other words, don’t leave the house if you happen to be displeased with her nor abandon her out of the home.) [Abu Dawood]
Hazrat Abdullah bin Zamah (r.a) narrates that Rasulullah (s.a.w) said: “None of you should beat his wife as though he is beating his slave, then at the end of the day he has intercourse with her!” (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi)
In another Hadith Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (r.a) narrates that Rasulullah (s.a.w) said: “I advise you to maintain a favourable relationship with your women. Accept this advice from me because women were created from a crooked rib. If you endeavour to straighten her, you will break her and breaking her is divorcing her and if you leave her as she is, she will always remain crooked. Therefore, accept this good advice in favour of them. (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi).
