Mirroring Rasulullah’s Relationship with his Spouse

  • We have learned from the hadiths of Rasulullah s.a.w. which described how busy he was fulfilling his duties as a Messenger of God, an imam and a leader of the state. He also dedicates his time in worship of God.

  • Despite all that, we have also witnessed how our beloved Messenger s.a.w. would ensure the rights of his family members were well met. Rasulullah s.a.w. would help his family members with the daily household chores; he never felt shamed or embarrassed in doing so. It is a good example that we should seek to understand and emulate.

  • We have been entrusted with the responsibility of caring for our wives, and ensuring her needs are met, as best as we can, fulfilling the rights due to them, and protecting their safety and welfare.
