Marriage is the only relation where you fall in love every day with the same person. The relationship between husband and wife is a very loving and pure relationship. It is very necessary for them to realize and understand their mutual duties as a couple. They are two bodies joined by the soul. The relationship between husband and wife is unique. Each partner has its own rights and the rights do not come without responsibilities. It is ALLAH’s mercy upon mankind that He created spouses for human beings and from their own kind too.
“And among His Signs is this that He created for you wives (spouses) from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for people who reflect.”
(Aayah No. 21, Surah Ar-Rūm, Chapter No. 30, Holy Qur’an).
The relationship between husband and wife is an exceptional relation where the two have no hijab among them. Both are hijabs for themselves.
They are libas (i.e. body cover, screen, dress) for you and you are the same for them.”
(Aayah No. 187, Surah Al-Baqarah, Chapter No. 2, Holy Qur’an).
The women must always make a balance between the negative consequences of stubbornness and the positive result of bearing some hardship in exchange for reducing tension in marital life.
The Prophet (SAWW) said:
“If a husband was pleased and content with his wife when she passed away, then she will enter Paradise.”
The husband is the provider and protector of his wife. He should fulfill her needs and keep her pleased.
Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) has stated:
“The best from among you is he who is best to his wife.”
Husband and wife have a share of inheritance from the wealth of each other after the death of their spouse. And the percentage is determined according to these glorious verses of the Holy Quran
“In that which your wives leave, your share is a half if they have no child; but if they leave a child, you get a fourth of that which they leave after payment of legacies that they may have bequeathed or debts. In that which you leave, their share (wives’) is a fourth, if you have no child; but if you leave a child, they get an eighth of that which you leave after payment of legacies that you may have bequeathed or debts.”
(Aayah No. 12, Surah An-Nisa’, Chapter No. 4, Holy Qur’an)
May Allah grant wisdom, patience, and temperament to all husbands and wives to honor this beautiful relationship.
