A Righteous Wife is foundation of righteous communities – Ash Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash Shaykh Al-Fawzaan – hafidahullah – said:

“Oh mankind know that righteous communities are built on righteous families and good houses; good houses are based upon the righteous wife, due to this it is obligatory for the Muslim that he chooses a righteous wife.

(فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّهُ)،

Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah orders them to guard (Soorah An-Nisaa’ Verse 34)

Therefore the Muslim chooses the righteous wife for she is the foundation of the house and she is the cultivator for the offspring and she guards her offspring and husband.

(فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ)
i.e. she is obedient to Allah

(حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ)

: When her husband is away she preserves herself (chastity), his property and his children until he returns.

A dua of the slaves of Ar-Rahmaan (as mentioned in soorah Al Furqaan)

(رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ)

And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, (Soorah Al-Furqaan Verse 74)

So they began their supplication with the wives (i.e. due to the importance of having righteous wives)”

The wife raising her voice towards her husband – Shaykh Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Uthaymeen was asked about a woman who raises her voice and shouts at her husband:

(Paraphrasing)
Indeed raising of the wife’s voice towards her husband is from evil manners, and that is because he is her protector and he takes care of her.*

Therefore it is a must that she respects him and addresses him with manners. Because that is more likely to create affection between them and enables friendship and love to remain between them. Likewise the husband must also treat her kindly. So good manners and kind treatment is mutual, Allah the Most High said:

…And treat them kindly; then if you hate them, it may be that you dislike a thing while Allah has placed abundant good in it.
Soorah An-Nisaa’ Verse 19

Fataawa Noor alad Darb li ibn Uthaymeen

* Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband’s property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great.
Soorah An-Nisaa Verse 34

Do not compromise with her religion, dignity and honour – Shaykh Fawzaan

 

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

 

A questioner from Britain asks:

Is it obligatory upon the woman to wear the jilbab and coverings, if there was difficulties for her in that country?

 

The shaykh hafidahullaah answers:

Yes the coverings and the hijab are binding upon her in any country, because she is a Muslima. So do not bargain and compromise with her religion, honour and dignity.

 


May Allah azza wa jal bless our sisters with istiqaamah upon the religion of Islaam and enable them to fulfill their religious obligations and by way of them raise up pious righteous Muslim children upon the correct Islamic Aqeedah.

 

Asking “Was She a Virgin?” – The Permanent Committee of Scholars

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

Question:

There are some people who ask the husband the morning after having sexual relations with his wife about the virginity of his wife (the bride) saying : “Did you find your wife to be a virgin or not?” Is it permissible for him to respond to this question, even if the questioner was one of the man’s or the woman’s parents?

Answer:

It is neither permissible to ask this question nor respond to it, rather he must close the door to this affair in order to preserve the private affairs of the Muslims.  And to Allaah belongs all success, and may peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad (salla Allaahu alaihi wa sallam), his family and his companions.

Every Upright Muslimah Wants a Pious and loving Husband, Likewise Every Upright Muslim Wants a Pious and Loving Wife!

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

Ibnul Jawzee (rahimahullaah) said: Sayyaar (rahimahullaah) reported from Riyaah (rahimahullaah) who said: A woman was mentioned to me, so I married her. Whenever she finished praying Ishaa , she would perfume herself, adorn herself with incense and wear her (fine) clothes; then she would approach me and say: ”Do you have a need?” If I said yes, she would stay with me; and if I said no, she would take off her (fine) clothes and stand up for (prayer) till the morning. Riyaah said: ”By Allaah, she really delighted me.” [Sifatus Safwah: page: 116]
