Family & Women Morals and Manners - 'Akhlaaq'

Husband appreciates wife’s efforts and dedication to family

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

I ask Allaah to grant you firmness in this life and the next. I do honestly belittle my efforts when I see your dedication and commitment to this family. Indeed, how often do I tell you that you are a wonderful wife! I hope that I am not one of those experts at finding fault, whilst being oblivious of the abundant good you bring in the household by the permission of Allaah. I hope that I am among those who strive to bring joy in the hearts of their beloved wives and not those who utilize authority to bully and degrade. I know that a husband has many rights, but I hope that I am not among those selfish ones–those who are oblivious to the fact that a good wife is great value. I hope that I am treating you right and not taking you for granted.

Indeed, I see you toiling for everyone in the house and never do you complain. I hope that I do consider your feelings just as you do with mine. If I sound as if I am criticizing without a valid reason, then please always remind me. Thank you so much for being a wonderful wife and a good mother. If I leave this world before you, then please stand by your children in righteousness and piety.

I ask Allaah (The Most High) to protect you; grant you happiness in this life and the next, and make your children the coolness of your eyes. I say this from the bottom of my heart and may Allaah (The Most High) reward you for the best of your deeds. Aameen
