husbands duties quran hadith

Husbands, In the current age, the status of husbands and ladies is regularly the subject of contentious discourses.

Islam has given awesome concentration on adjusted and moral marriage that prompts glad families and wedded couples.

Our religion has disclosed to the Muslim ummah various angles – from the privileges of a couple to Husbands and ladies and from kids to guardians – the prerequisites for each person and their status is quickly expressed with cases of Holy figures and confirmations.

Notwithstanding, because of the social traditions and weight, the necessities are bent into examples keeping in mind the end goal to meet the needs and needs of the general public and not of the religion. Marriage is one of the objectives demolished by the standards of our general public.

1. They are the guardians of the Family

Lady and man are the wheels that make a vehicle work – be that as it may, husbands are given a bigger divide of characteristics that make them more grounded as far as guarding their families:

الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ

عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ


“Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others…” (4:34).

Islam has given men the duty of supporting their ladies and their families. As indicated by our Prophet (PBUH), “Men are the guardians of their families and it is the responsibility of every guardian to guard those who fall under his own guardianship.” – (Mustadrak, vol 2, p 550)

2. Husband should be loving towards his wife

A man ought to comprehend that the lady he weds likewise has her own particular rights and longings towards her life, opportunity, and desires from his better half – she should not be taken as a hireling. In this manner, it is essential that he meets the necessities of his better half, while a spouse meets her arrangement of prerequisites.

The mystery behind the thriving of a family is the way a spouse treats his significant other and the other way around. The statement of friendship towards your better half is your obligation, as indicated by Islam. Islam values the penances ladies make and in this way, Allah favors love between a wedded couple for the improvement of their life:

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا

لِتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُمْ مَوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّ

فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ


“..And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.” (30:21)

“The more one becomes faithful the more one expresses kindness to his spouse’’. – Prophet (PBUH) – (Ibid, p 228)

 “The words of a man who tells his wife, ‘I love you truly’, should never leave her heart” – Prophet (PBUH) – (Shafi, vol 2, p 138)

In Islam, beating the spouse is entirely illegal, while our way of life keeps on mishandling ladies physically and rationally. Then again, notwithstanding taking a gander at each other with affection conveys favors and euphoria to the relationship.

3. Husbands Should be available for their wife during her pregnancy

There is no contention on how cutting-edge age men once in a while ignored the significance and agony amid pregnancy and regard it as a “customary” condition. Be that as it may, Islam has given incredible essentialness to this matter too.

As indicated by Sadiq (RA), “The food of a fetus, is provided by the nourishment that the mother receives” – (Bihar al-Anwar, vol 60, p342) what’s more, this sustenance is given by the spouse.

Amid this touchy matter, it is a test for the spouse alone, as well as for the husband as they will bring forth their future era.

4. Bringing Up Children Together

Husbands and ladies have influence in bringing forth the product of the marriage – youngsters. Frequently our general public dumps the matter of raising kids on the spouse alone while overlooking that a father is similarly in charge of this obligation too.

Nor is not reasonable for the mother to wake up amidst the night to go to the necessities of the crying child (if the infant requires more than simply encouragement), nor it is reasonable for the mother to be considered dependable alone.

It is your entitlement to help your better half and also a demonstration of generosity.

Prophet (PBUH) said, “‘The best of men is one who treats his wife well and I, amongst you, am the best man with regard to the good treatment of my wife”—(Wasa’il al-Shi’ah, vo114, p 122)

The Prophet (PBUH) also said, “The best of you is the one who is better towards his family, and I am to my family the best among all” – (Wasa’il al-Shiah, vol 14. p 122)

While these may sound like essential rights, our general public has a tendency to disregard them, prompting various residential squabbles that are not perfect for families.
