“A righteous woman is obedient to her husband and is dutiful to Allah. She is purified and immaculate…”
“..Her words are like sweet ginger, her embrace is good (morning, noon and night). She assists him in doing righteous actions and protects him from all avenues of evil. When he looks at her he is happy; when he sits with her, his heart is delighted…”
‘There is nothing strange about a woman’s love for her husband and her affection toward him. But truly loving one’s husband entails having love for those whom he loves especially his parents, siblings, and friends.’
‘It is the habit of women who are deficient in their intellect, to despise their husband’s friends under the pretext that they busy the husband away from his wife, steal their time, and other petty arguments. This is not befitting even if your husband lagers on with his friends to the extent of taking up your time.’
