‘…the best among you is he who is best in dealings with his wife. He who does not treat his wife nicely, cannot be called a righteous person…”
“You should not think that women are something to be taken as very low and of no importance whatsoever. It is not so. Our perfect Guide, the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaih wa sallam, has said: Khairokum Khairokum li-ahlihee: the best among you is he who is best in dealings with his wife. He who does not treat his wife nicely, cannot be called a righteous person. One can do good to others only if one does good to the wife. He who quarrels with his wife and scolds her for every petty thing and beats her up, can certainly do no good to others. At times it so happens that a person is annoyed with his wife and beats her and as a result of that she gets hurt at some delicate part of her body and she passes away. It is to avoid this kind of things that God says: Aashiroo hunna bil ma’roof
Of course if she does someihing very undesirable, she may be given a warning.
It is the duty of the man to tell the woman (the wife) that he will not like anything that is contrary to the religious commands, but at the same time he should also tell her that he is not so harsh and hardhearted that he should not overlook any of her shortcomings”.
