Sisters, are you aware of what your rights are to your husband in a marriage?

Do you know what Allah SWT has decreed for you in the sanctity of marriage?

Brothers, do you know what rights your wife has over YOU?

Marriage is one of the most beautiful ways to complete half of your deen, but this can only happen successfully when both men and women are fully aware of the rights they both have towards each other and OVER each other...

Prepare to be amazed as we delve deep into part one of this two-part webinar event looking at the rights and responsibilities of each spouse!

In this webinar entitled ‘The Heart of The Home: The Rights And Responsibilities of A Wife’ you’ll discover exactly which rights the Qur’an and Sunnah have given to wives including:

• Why the wife will always have the right to be provided for – even if she is wealthy!
• How she is treated in the home
• The trust that is placed on her in her husband’s absence
• What it truly means to attain Jannah by adhering to your rights

International speaker Sheikh Musleh Khan will insha’Allah be your guide into the rights, roles and responsibilities of sisters in a marriage...

It doesn’t matter whether you are married or not, a sister or a brother, we guarantee you’ll learn things on this webinar you may otherwise never have known!

Rights and responsibilities of Wife - The heart of the home

  1. 1. The heart of the home Presented By Sheikh musleh khan www.facebook.com/brother.musleh The rights and responsibilities of the wife
  2. 2. Islam places great responsibilities on men and women to complete half of their Deen with marriage. Most Muslims know this but don’t know what the rights and responsibilities are of each spouse. The wife is the heart of the home and has many rights and responsibilities to her family
  3. 3. As a wife, what are my duties and responsibilities?
  4. 4. Duties of the wife The wife’s duties towards her husband may be greater than the husband’s duties towards his wife, as Allah says: “And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect) to what is reasonable, but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them” [Al-Baqarah 2:228]
  5. 5. Duties of the wife 1. Obedience  The wife should be obedient to her husband at all times as he is her protector and maintainer, and supports her financially  Women should not see this as a chore, but rather a means of gaining reward, as the Prophet (SAW) said: “Have I not told you about your women in Jannah? The loving fertile one; if she gets angry, was mistreated, or her husband was angry, she said: ‘here is my hand in yours, I will not sleep until you are pleased with me’” (Assaheehah 287)  Keep in mind – there is no obedience for the husband in disobedience of Allah
  6. 6. duties of the wife 2. A halal relationship with her husband  The wife should make herself available to her husband, after marriage has taken place and he has given the mahr  She should not withhold this right from her husband without a valid excuse, e.g. Sickness, obligatory fasting etc  If she refuses without a valid reason then she has committed a major sin  This is because one of the wisdoms of marriage is to prevent zina/loose morals by allowing this relationship
  7. 7. duties of the wife 3. Not admitting anyone husband dislikes  She should take care to not permit anyone whom her husband dislikes into the marital home  The Prophet (SAW) said: Fear Allaah concerning women!...You too have rights over them, and that they should not allow anyone to sit on your bedding [i.e., not let them into the house] whom you do not like...Their rights upon you are that you should provide them with food and clothing in a fitting manner.” [Muslim]
  8. 8. duties of the wife 4. Ask her husband permission before leaving the home  She should take care to seek permission from her husband before going out of the home that he has provided her  Women are seen as the guardians of their marital home and their husband’s wealth as the Prophet (SAW) said: “The woman is the guardian of her husband’s house and is responsible for it.” (Bukhari)
  9. 9. duties of the wife 5. Serving her husband She is obliged to serve her husband according to what is reasonable This includes:  Respecting her husband as the ameer and main decision-maker of the home  Maintaining his honour – not speaking ill of him to others  Keeping his secrets and not divulging them
  10. 10. duties of the wife 5. Serving her husband  Treating him in a good manner with love and kindness Mu’ath Ibn Jabal elevated: “If a woman harms her husband in this life; the maidens will say, do not harm him, may Allah harm you; he is only a guest with you, and soon he will leave your company” (Assaheehah 173)
  11. 11. duties of the wife 5. Serving her husband  Beautifying herself for her husband – though the same is also expected of the husband!  Ibn Abbaas (RA) said: ‘I love to beautify myself for my wife, as I love her to beautify herself for me.’  To not deny him the right to children
  12. 12. As a wife, what are my rights from my husband?
  13. 13. rights of the wife 1. Mahr  This is her right ordained by Allah: “And give the women [upon marriage] their [bridal] gifts graciously. But if they give up willingly to you anything of it, then take it in satisfaction and ease.” [Quran 4: 4]  It is a token of honour and respect for the woman
  14. 14. rights of the wife 2. Allowance and Accommodation  The wife has a right to an allowance from her husband, even if she is wealthy The Prophet (SAW) said in his khutbah during the Farewell Pilgrimage: “Their (women’s) rights over you are that you should provide for them and clothe them in a reasonable manner.”  It is obligatory for the husband to spend on his wife and provide her with all of her basic needs, including food, clothing, essentials, shelter “Lodge them (the women)where you dwell, according to your means” [At-Talaaq 65:6]
  15. 15. Allah has created man different from woman. Men are more practical whereas women are more emotional and need reassurance.
  16. 16. rights of the wife 3. Love, kindness and respect  The husband must be kind to his wife and offer her everything that may make her pleased with him: “And live with them honourably” [Al Nisa 4:19] Prophet (SAW) said: “Be kind to women” (Bukhari)  The husband should be patient with his wife, even if she upsets you, in the case of Umar (RA)  Husband should understand the nature of a wife is first and foremost a woman as Allah created her: Prophet (SAW) said: “Be gentle in dealing the glass bottles”
  17. 17. rights of the wife 4. Acquiring knowledge  The husband has a duty to teach his wife her religious affairs including establishing prayers. The Prophet (pbuh) said: "All of you are shepherds and all of you will be asked about your wards. The ruler is a shepherd and shall be asked about his wards. The man is a shepherd of his family and will be asked about his ward." (Bukhari)  Analogy: If you love your wives and want to protect them from the heat of the sun by closing the window, would you not then want to protect them from the heat of the hellfire?
  18. 18. Conclusion  The wife has many rights over her husband but she has more responsibilities  The most important of her responsibilities is her obedience and willingness to serve her husband  She has more rights with regards to being treated well and being handled with care  When a husband is pleased with his wife and gets his due rights from her, her reward is great inshAllah
