Best and Worse of Muslim Spouses - NikahExplorer
Allah has said in the Quran about a Muslim husband and Muslim wife living together in marriage that “And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in peace and tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect.” (30:21)
The above ayah means that we should live with our Muslim spouses in love and peace and accept them for who they are. This means that we should be their partner in all ups and downs, in all happiness and sadness and be with them when they achieve success as well as when they go through a downfall.
The above ayah also means tells us to have mercy in our hearts for our spouses. What does that mean? That means that Allah accepts that a Muslim husband and Muslin wife are two different personalities and that it is inevitable that there will be clashes. And when there are clashes and arguments and differences of opinions, we must show mercy to our spouse. Showing mercy does not only mean forgiveness. It also means understanding each other, showing a spirit of compromise and be willing to sacrifice for each other.
That is what living together with your spouse at their best and their worst means. To be together in all times of hardships and ease. We see the best and worst of our husbands and wives when we are living with them. It makes us happy, it makes us mad and it makes us crazy. But Allah has asked us not to give up and infact we are promised greater reward if we make our marriages work and love our spouses not only when they are at their best but also when they are at their worst.
