Rights of Husband and Wife in Islam


The relation of husband and wife is very beautiful but sensitive as well. A girl sacrifices her whole life for a new relation with her husband and on the other hand, the man also make some dreams about his married life. What are the husband wife rights in Islam? It is very difficult to live a life among strangers but Allah has given so many blessings in this relationship that both lives together for their whole life. No one can break their relationship of love with each other. The better half is the most important person of your life who not only remains a part of your soul, but also shares your worries and grieves. Allah has rightly said that woman has made from rib of man. And the perfect match for every human being has been made already by Allah.

As in Surah Al-Ahzab, Allah has said,

“Verily, the Muslims (those who submit to Allah in Islam) men and women, the believers men and women (who believe in Islamic Monotheism), the men and the women who are obedient (to Allah), the men and women who are truthful (in their speech and deeds), the men and the women who are patient (in performing all the duties which Allah has ordered and in abstaining from all that Allah has forbidden), the men and the women who are humble (before their Lord Allah), the men and the women who give Sadaqat (i.e. Zakat, and alms, etc.), the men and the women who observe Saum (fast) (the obligatory fasting during the month of Ramadan, and the optional Nawafil fasting), the men and the women who guard their chastity (from illegal sexual acts) and the men and the women who remember Allah much with their hearts and tongues (while sitting, standing, lying, etc. for more than 300 times extra over the remembrance of Allah during the five compulsory Congregational prayers) or praying extra additional Nawafil prayers of night in the last part of night, etc.) Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise).”

Islamic Point of View:

“We are Muslims”. This thing we are learning right from the beginning of our studies but being a Muslim, we don’t act on the Islamic teachings that are mentioned in Quran. Take an example of husband wife relationship. It is full of strong feelings and purified with any kind of revulsion. But often it reaches to a great limit of repulsiveness. This relationship exploits when both individuals does not take care of their liabilities. In spite of performing their duties, they start fighting for their own rights. They do not consider that the right of one individual is the duty of another. Very often, women start doubting their husbands that why they come late to home. Why he irritates when I make calls after every five minutes? Why he spend whole holiday outside the house? But they forget that he has other responsibilities to be fulfilled like he has to take care of his parents who have brought him up to this level.
