A person’s Imaan is tested in various ways in a marriage. Among the many tests is the situation where a couple who already have children from previous marriages are now married to each other. The test of Imaan is to now treat one’s own children as well as the children of one’s spouse with equality. The mother should never show love only to her own children and disregard the husband’s children from his first marriage, or spend freely on her own children and deprive the husband’s children, whereas they are more entitled to their father’s wealth. The demand of a true Muslim mother is that she displays kindness and fairness to all the children under her care. This could very well become the means of her entrance into Jannah.
