An Islamic woman is bestowed with numerous rights upon her Husband. After the Nikah, the husband becomes the sole guardian, breadwinner, and pleasure giver for his wife. In return, the wife leaves her home, family, and friends only to begin a new life with her husband. Some men become controlling and exercise unjustified power over their wives. In this male-dominated world, women should not feel weak and must not forget the rights made to protect them. In today’s article, we will discuss the different rights which will make the life of married Muslim women simpler and easier.
"O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah, through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed, Allah is ever, over you, an Observer. (Qur’an 4:1)
In no way, the husband has the right to harm his wife physically, mentally, or emotionally.
You will find happiness and peace with a man whose heart beats for you and prays for your Aakhirah. A man with hidden motives does not deserve your respect
A man must marry only if he is ready to take the full responsibility of a woman. In case, the husband ignores his duties and does not contribute towards his responsibilities, the woman has the right to raise her voice against such injustice.
Marital relationship is not aimed for a single-side pleasure. The sole purpose of marriage should not be the extension of the family but also to make your beloved feel special and respected.
The husband must take upon mutual responsibility and share the duties equally to earn the respect of his wife and maintain a healthy marriage.
The best trait in a wife is her Imaan. Inner beauty must always be a priority of every man rather than outer beauty. A man has no right to insult his wife on her looks and appearance publicly or personally.
The husband should handle the household chores and be cooperative in helping his wife to do all the work together.
The husband must protect the chastity of his wife and ensure she is not looked upon by any evil eye.
So, there you go. These are some of the rights of Muslim wives over their husbands as per the Quran. What according to you are the other rights which Muslim women must have?
