This is not to say that only the Husbands or men enjoy the respect that all creatures deserve.
In our future posts, we will mention the rights of women and how Islam have honored women from the day of ignorance.
A period when female infants were buried alive;
wives are buried together with the dead husbands;
wives are inherited;
wives are treated as an object; and
is only given importance to because of the child rearing and
provider of husbands’ physical needs and nothing more.
Below are some of the ahaadeeth and Quranic verses that should tame the overly claim of superiority of women, in this time and age.
Those women who claim that they can do whatever they want because Men are equal to women, should beware.
Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibbaan report a hadeeth narrated by Jaabir:
“There are three whose prayers will not be accepted and none of whose good deeds will ascend to heaven:
a runaway slave, until he returns to his master;
a drunken man until he becomes sober;
and a woman with whom her husband is angry, until he is pleased with her.”
narrated that Abu Hurayrah said
“The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘If a woman spends the night having forsaken her husband’s bed, the angels will curse her until she goes back.’”
(narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Nikaah, 4795)
It was narrated that Talq ibn ‘Ali said:
“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘When a man calls his wife to him, then let her respond, even if she is at the oven (baking bread).’”
(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1080, classed as saheeh by al-Albaani, no. 927, in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi)
From the Quran,
“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).”
And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“It is not permissible for a woman to fast when her husband is present except with his permission, or to allow anyone in his house without his permission.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4899
Fasting in Islam means avoiding sexual relations with the spouse until one breaks his fast.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said:
She is obliged to serve her husband according to what is reasonable among people of similar standing. That varies according to circumstances: the way in which a Bedouin woman serves (her husband) will not be like the way of a town-dweller, and the way of a strong woman will not be like the way of a weak woman.
Al-Fataawa al-Kubraa, 4/561
May we all be good wives to our husbands and the husbands be the best husbands to their wives.
