43. Protect Wives and treat them well

Surah No. 4, An Nisa, Ayat No. 19

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ يَحِلُّ لَكُمْ أَن تَرِثُواْ النِّسَاء كَرْهًا وَلاَ تَعْضُلُوهُنَّ لِتَذْهَبُواْ بِبَعْضِ مَا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ إِلاَّ أَن يَأْتِينَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ مُّبَيِّنَةٍ وَعَاشِرُوهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ فَإِن

o كَرِهْتُمُوهُنَّ فَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْ شَيْئًا وَيَجْعَلَ اللّهُ فِيهِ خَيْرًا كَثِيراً

Translation :

O believers! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them (your wife) with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mehr which you have given them, unless they commit open lewdness. And you live with them honourably even if you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good.

Surah No. 4, An Nisa, part of Ayat No. 34

الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاء بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ وَبِمَا أَنفَقُواْ مِنْ

o أَمْوَالِهِمْ فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللّهُ

Translation :

Men are the protectors and maintainers of women. By reason of superiority over one another Allah has given this position (to men), that they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and protects the secret of men and their chastity as well in a manner which Allah has approved .

Hadis :

1. The prophet Mohammad (saws) said " Excellent wife is that, when you see her, it gives lot of joy to you ,whenever you ask for something she does it obediently, when you are not at home she guards your wealth and her chastity. "

2. Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

The Prophet said: "I was shown the Hell-fire and I noticed that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful." It was asked, "Do they disbelieve in Allah?" (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, "They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favours and the good deeds done to them. If you have always been good to them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, 'I have never received any good from you."

Volume 1, Book 2, Hadis Number 28: Sahi Bukhari Shareef

Surah No. 4, An Nisa, part of Ayat No.128

وَإِنِ امْرَأَةٌ خَافَتْ مِن بَعْلِهَا نُشُوزًا أَوْ إِعْرَاضًا فَلاَ جُنَاْحَ عَلَيْهِمَا أَن يُصْلِحَا

بَيْنَهُمَا صُلْحًا وَالصُّلْحُ خَيْرٌ وَأُحْضِرَتِ الأَنفُسُ الشُّحَّ وَإِن تُحْسِنُواْ وَتَتَّقُواْ فَإِنَّ

o اللّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرًا

Translation :

And if a woman fears clash and conflict on her husband's part, there is no sin on them if they make efforts of peace between themselves; and making peace is better. And human souls are diverted by greed. But if you do good and keep away from evil, in fact, Allah is Well¬Acquainted with what you do.
