On the authority of Abdullaah bin Amr (may Allah be pleased with him), the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“Allah does not look at the woman who does not show gratitude to her husband while at the same time she is unable to do without him.”

— [An-Nisaa’i, Al-Haakim, Musnad of Ahmad;  Declared to be ‘Hasan’ by Shaykh Al-Albaani in As-Saheehah #1838]

Narrated ‘Aisha (radhiAllaahu ‘anha):

Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “When a woman gives in charity some of the foodstuff (which she has in her house) without spoiling it, she will receive the reward for what she has spent, and her husband will receive the reward because of his earning, and the storekeeper will also have a reward similar to it. The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others.”

— [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 2, no. 506]


Translated by Abū al-Ḥasan Mālik Ādam al-Akhḍar

“There is an evil habit that has spread amongst the practicing brothers. It is that one of them will marry a woman and after a few short days a quarrel will take place between the spouses, and the news will spread [throughout the community]. Then, there are some brothers who will encourage him to divorce her, until the point that there is a sister who has been divorced fourteen times. This has become widespread and apparent, and there is no one there from the people of knowledge for them to return to, so what do you advise us with?”

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī:
“I advise the brothers with what the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم has said: “The believing man does not dislike the believing woman, if he is displeased with something in her, he is pleased with something else.”[2]

And what has come in the two Ṣaḥīḥs, on the authority of Abū Hurayrah from the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم:

“Be good to women, for indeed they were created from the rib, and indeed the rib is crooked, and the most crooked part of the rib is the upper portion, so if you attempt to straighten it, you will break it, and if you leave it as it is it will remain crooked, so be good to women.”[3]

Also from the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم:

“Indeed the woman was created from the rib and she will not be straightened, so if you leave her as she is she will remain crooked, and if you try to straighten her you will break her, and breaking her is divorcing her.”[4]

And the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “I have not seen anyone more deficient in intellect and religon who takes away the mind of a prudent man faster than  one of you (women).” Therefore, deficiency in intellect and religion is something persistent in most women.”[5]


1. Our Shaykh, the Muḥaddith, Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādi’ī—may Allāh bestow His Mercy upon him—was asked
the following question by some of the brothers and sisters in the United States. See Tufah al-Mujīb question
number 112.

Narrated Jabir (radhiAllaahu ‘anhu) that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said:

"Iblees places his throne upon water; he then sends detachments (for creating dissension); the nearer to him in rank are those who are most notorious in creating dissension. One of them comes and says: I did so and so. And he says: You have done nothing. Then one amongst them comes and says: I did not spare so and so until I sowed the seed of discord between a husband and a wife. The Satan goes near him and says: You have done well. A’mash said: He then embraces him."

[Saheeh Muslim. Number 2813]

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

"And due to the fact that this bond (between husband and wife) is from the most beloved affairs to Allah and His Messenger, so it is from the most hated affairs to the enemy of Allah (i.e. shaytaan). Therefore he hastens to split two people who love another for the sake of Allah—a love that is beloved to Allah—and brings two people together in loving that which is hateful and displeasing to Allah."

[Rawdatul Muhibbeen Wa Nuzhatul Mush-taaqeen, pg. 188]

Narrated Abu Huraira (radhiAllaahu ‘anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, ‘I am fasting.” The Prophet (ﷺ) added, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), ‘He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.”

— [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 3, no. 118]

Shaykh Al-Allaamah Abdullaah Bin Muhammad Bin Humayd (rahimahullaah), former Imam of Masjid Al Haram, said:

"Your children are a trust and when you neglect them, then indeed you have betrayed them. It is obligatory upon every one of us to fear Allah with regards to the (affair) of his children and those under his care. The days go past and the end of a (person’s) life is close, and a person does not know when his life span will suddenly come to (an end). He must strive to teach his children beneficial knowledge and that he gives them training upon goodness, and nurtures them upon obedience to (Allah and His Messenger)."

Ibn al-Haaj al-Maaliki رحمه الله said:

A man should stay away from such thoughts and from this abhorrent characteristic which unfortunately is widespread, which is that when a man sees a woman he likes, he goes to his wife but he imagines that woman whom he has seen. This is a kind of zina, because our scholars said concerning one who takes a glass of water and imagines that it is wine that he is drinking, that that water becomes haraam for him. What is mentioned does not apply only to men, rather women are included in it too and that is even worse, because usually women nowadays go out and look at people, and if a woman sees someone whom she likes, she may keep thinking of him, then when her husband has intercourse with her she imagines that image which she has seen, so both of them may come under the heading of zina. We ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound. Al-Madkhal, 2/194, 195

Ibn Muflih al-Hanbal iرحمه الله said: 

Ibn ‘Aqeel said – and he emphasized the prohibition in al-Ri’aayah al-Kubra: If, when he is having intercourse with his wife, he imagines the image of another woman or a male, then he is sinning. Al-Furoo’, 3/51

Wali al-Deen al-‘Iraaqi رحمه الله  said:

If he has intercourse with his wife but in his mind he is having intercourse with someone who is forbidden for him, and he imagines in his mind that he is having intercourse with that forbidden image, that is haraam for him, and that is because he is imagining himself committing a haraam action. Tarh al-Tathreeb, 2/19

ابن الحاج المالكي رحمه الله :

" ويتعين عليه أن يتحفظ على نفسه بالفعل ، وفي غيره بالقول من هذه الخصلة القبيحة التي عمت بها البلوى في الغالب ، وهي أن الرجل إذا رأى امرأة أعجبته ، وأتى أهله جعل بين عينيه تلك المرأة التي رآها ، وهذا نوع من الزنا ، لما قاله علماؤنا فيمن أخذ كوزاً من الماء فصوَّر بين عينيه أنه خمر يشربه أن ذلك الماء يصير عليه حراماً … وما ذكر لا يختص بالرجل وحده بل المرأة داخلة فيه بل هو أشد ؛ لأن الغالب عليها في هذا الزمان الخروج أو النظر ، فإذا رأت من يعجبها تعلق بخاطرها ، فإذا كانت عند الاجتماع بزوجها جعلت تلك الصورة التي رأتها بين عينيها ، فيكون كل واحد منهما في معنى الزاني ، نسأل الله العافية " انتهى .

" المدخل " ( 2 / 194 ، 195 ) .

وقال ابن مفلح الحنبلي رحمه الله :

" وقد ذكر ابن عقيل - وجزم به في " الرعاية الكبرى " - : أنه لو استحضر عند جماع زوجته صورة أجنبية محرمة أو ذكر : أنه يأثم " انتهى .

" الفروع " ( 3 / 51 ) .

وقال ولي الدين العراقي رحمه الله :

" لو جامع أهله وفي ذهنه مجامعة من تحرم عليه ، وصوَّر في ذهنه أنه يجامع تلك الصورة المحرمة : فإنه يحرم عليه ذلك ، وكل ذلك لتشبهه بصورة الحرام " انتهى .

Will the righteous woman of the Dunya (worldly life) be from the Hoor Al-’Ayn (virgin women of Jannah) in the next life?

The righteous woman in the Dunya, meaning the wife, will be better, better smelling, and more desirable to her husband than the Hoor Al-’Ayn in the Aakhira (next life). Indeed the Prophet (ﷺ) informed us that the first group to enter Jannah will be like a shining like a full moon.
