Showing Mercy to Our Family

  • There are two core family values mentioned in the verse, i.e., love and mercy. These values must be demonstrated throughout our interactions and dealings with our family members, especially during times of conflict.
  • Disagreements and conflicts that occur between spouses are a normal part of family life. However, in trying to solve such conflicts, one must not resort to violence of any form. This is because what should guide every believer is religious guidance, derived from both the Qur’an and the Sunnah. We should not be driven by our own personal interests and desires.
