Ramadan Reflections: Day 13

Bismillah ... In the name of Allah subhana wa ta'ala

The best gift someone on this earth can have is a righteous wife ( based on a hadith of our beloved prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihe wa sallam). Subhanallah this is a very profound statement. As Muslim wives, we have so much potentials to change everything for better bi'idnillah. Once someone said, a pious wife can make a poor husband feel like the richest man in the world with her contentment, satisfaction and gratitude. While any other wife who is not as such will make her rich husband feel poor with her nagging, demands and never-ending complains.

So many times around us, we see wives who are always complaining and not content with their husbands at all. This negative behaviour affects the children . By default, children tend to support the mothers without thinking logically as they are tend to be more emotionally atteched to their mothers. Sometimes children grow up disrespecting, hating their fathers. By the time, they realize their mistakes it's too late. Lot of fathers leave this world with broken hearts. Most of the men as fathers do a great job, sacrificing their life to bring up families. It's the job of the mother to inculcate the love and respect for the father in children. 

We as women really need to be careful how we treat our families. By undermining the husband, a wife can create a huge fitna within the family. Husband is the head of the family. This great responsibility has been allocated to him by Allah subhana wa ta'ala. However, he can only run the family properly with the full support of his wife. 
I am not saying that all the men/fathers are perfect but we really need to question ourselves sincerely, are all the women/mothers perfect? None of us are perfect but we have a keen desire to change for the better. In our faith, a couple works as a strong team. They compliment each other. They are described as clothes for each other. Just like clothes are there to cover our shame (faults, shortcomings) & protect us from harm ( hot/cold weather), husband and wife cover each other's back. 

It is very sad to see sisters backbiting about their husbands. We are suppose to be clothes for each other but we are trying to uncover the shame! Just try to visualize a wife backbiting about her husband to her freinds and family, while her children are around. How painful this scenario can be for the poor kids! Do we honestly think these poor children will enjoy this act of their beloved mother? 

May Allah subhana wa ta'ala make us truly understand the significance of this noble task of being a wife and let us do our best to do the job with great efforts and become the best gift for our beloved husbands, ameen!

May Allah subhana wa ta'ala bless every home with happiness & love, ameen!

Appreciate your spouses. They are a very precious gift from Allah subhana wa ta'ala. Alhamdulillah.

A house is built with bricks and a home is built with love..Let the love grow to strength to strength bi'idnillah.
