The Best to your Wives - NikahExplorer
When we marry we must realize that now we are not only responsible for our own welfare but also for that of our spouse’s. And by realizing that we should not only assume that it means providing for the spouse in material terms but the greater relevance lied in providing your spouse emotional support and physical attentions. Oftentimes, while women adequately provide emotional support to their husbands, the husbands fail to reciprocate. That is where the rights of wives in Islam come in.
Husbands must realize that just because he is providing money to his wife, paying the rent of the house and supporting the children in their education, he is NOT fulfilling ALL his responsibilities. No doubt that is quite a lot but husbands must realize that their wives are different from them. Allah has made men and women two different types of humans and while Allah has said that “they are your garments and you are their garments” in the Quran for the relationship between husband and wife, we must note that the motional capacity of both is quite different.
The woman wants to be appreciated. She wants to be loved. And she wants to be told that to her by her husband. So husbands should be the BEST to their wives. It is a tradition of the Holy Prophet (PBUH)
“The most complete of the believers in faith, is the one with the best character. And the best of you are those who are best to their women.”
So be the best to her. Be the best man in her life! Listen to her and help her lessen her fears if she has them. Men have little emotional capacity and hence they walk away when their wives sit to talk to them but don’t! C’mon you can manage it sometimes, listening to what your wife has to say, can’t you? Be her partner (in love and in crime) , be her garment, be her companion, and mostly, be her friend. Be the best she can ever have and treat her the best. C’mon she deserves it!
