14 Nov The rights of a husband from his wife & Treating women well
Men (those who are able to carry out their responsibilities) are the protectors and maintainers of women inasmuch as Allah has endowed some of people (in some respects) with greater capacity than others, and inasmuch as they (the men) spend of their wealth (for the family’s maintenance). Good, righteous women are the devoted ones (to Allah) and observant (of their husbands’ rights), who guard the secrets (family honor and property, their chastity, and their husband’s rights, especially where there is none to see them,) as Allah guards and keeps undisclosed (what should be guarded and private). (an-Nisa 4:34)
158. Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“All of you are shepherds. Each of you is responsible for his flock. An amir is a shepherd. A man is a shepherd in respect of his family. The woman is a shepherd in respect of her husband’s house and children. All of you are shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Wasaya, 9; Sahih Muslim, Imara, 20).
Consort with them (women) in a good manner. (an-Nisa 4:19)
154. Abu Hurayra, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“A believing man should not hate a believing woman. If he dislikes something in her character, he should be pleased with some other or another trait of hers.” (Sahih Muslim, Rada, 61).
156. Abu Hurayra, may Allah be pleased with him, said,
“The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, ‘The most perfect of believers in belief is the best of them in character. The best of you are those who are the best to their women.’” (Sunan at-Tirmidhi, Rada, 11).
