Values in the Quran : Positive Interaction Within the Household

  • This week's verse specifically addresses men. What is the wisdom behind this? 
  • There are two categories of rights that we must fulfil. The first is that of Allah's, and the second is that of Allah's creations. 
  • The verse recited at the beginning serves as a reminder to every individual that preserving good relations demands effort from both parties. 
  • Islam teaches us to view our spouses in the best possible light even in such situations. We need to learn how to focus on the good rather than the bad, to appreciate everything that our spouses have contributed and sacrificed, and to seek resolution by communicating positively with each other.
