A woman is blessed with three sacred relationships by Allah, the Great: a daughter, a wife and a mother. The second phase of a woman’s life is marriage which is actually much more than love. It is a communion of two lives. It demands support in health and sickness, work and worry, joy and sorrow.
Marriage is name of coping with all the problems that come your way and still maintaining the integrity of the relationship. It might apparently seem to be a huge struggle but Allah has hidden such blessings in this sacred relationship that it is beyond the understanding of humans. The role of a wife throughout this struggle is indeed phenomenal and worth discussing.
Praiseworthy are those women who live away from their husbands (who are working abroad to financially support the family), maintain good terms with her in-laws and fulfill all the responsibilities from managing a family single-handedly to bringing up the children in the light of Islam.
It is indeed a big sacrifice to stay away from your life partner all your life for the better future of the family, to protect the dignity of the family name and still not complain. May Allah grant patience and willpower to all such women and may their children prove to be a perpetual charity for all such parents.
As Prophet Muhammad PBUH once highlighted the role of a husband towards his wife,
“No believer should be angry towards his wife. If some of her qualities are displeasing, there will be many other qualities worth appreciation. No doubt, the best of you is he who is the best to his wife.”
May Allah SWT bless all Muslim brothers and sisters with happiness in their family life!
