Addressing the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), Allah Ta‘ala says: “Know well that the Rasul of Allah Ta‘ala is in your midst (referring to the time when he lived with them). If he (Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) were to obey you in many matters, you would face difficulty (ie. if he had to obey your whims, this would lead to you falling into much difficulty). (Surah Hujuraat, v7)

O My beloved daughter! The coolness of my eyes and the comfort of my heart!

You were entrusted to us and now we hand you over to the custody of Allah and the care of your husband

You are about to depart from a life that you were accustomed to; from parents who loved you and will always love you, from brothers and sisters who will forever miss you

You are going to a house that is completely strange to you; to a com¬panion that is really unknown to you

Our du‘aas and blessings are with you

Why Dig Up The Past?

While the disagreements and fights that take place amongst women may not be of a violent nature, they indeed become very prolonged affairs. Their displeasure and ill feelings continue for an extended period of time. What makes matters even worse is the habit of women to dig up the past. Issues which were resolved and forgotten a long time ago are brought up again. As a result a small issue becomes a major problem, especially when past events are recalled and mentioned in harsh and heart - piercing words. To rub salt in the wound she will then also remind the husband of all the favours and good she did for him. All this is done only to please one’s nafs (carnal desire) and shaytaan. It is time we suppress our words of anger and please our most loving Allah Ta‘ala.

   

The Gift of a Partner

In a marriage there are many signs by which we can recognize our Creator, Allah Ta‘ala. One such sign is that Allah Ta‘ala has created for us partners from amongst ourselves, from amongst our own class and type. It is not asked of us to marry some other species of creation. Thus do not just look at one’s spouse as one’s beloved partner in life, but rather as the “gift” that has been presented to us by Allah Ta‘ala. When one recieves a gift, instead of looking at the quantity and quality of the gift, one should instead look at the one who has given the gift. Any sensible person greatly treasures a gift given to him/her by a pious personality, even though it maybe something insignificant. In the same way Allah Ta‘ala has given us our partner as a gift. Therefore, always consider this and express gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for his gift.

1. Learn to forgive your husband. Remember the English adage 'To err is human, to forgive is Divine.'

2. Misunderstandings and minor differences should not be suppressed. Rather discuss them in an amicable manner, or else this could ultimately lead to a broken marriage (Allah Ta’ala save us.)
