Islamic Perspectives

A touching message


For the first time after 18 years of marriage, she prepared the worst dinner for her husband, the vegetables were over cooked, meat was burned and salad was too salty.

At the dinner table, her husband kept silent while he was eating.

After that, when she was in kitchen washing dishes he came to her, smiled at her and kissed her on her forehead “why is this kiss for?” she asked him not believing what he did.

“Tonight your cooking reminded me of your cooking in the first days of our marriage! It reminded me of your cooking as a new bride, so I wanted to treat you as if you are a new bride”

This is the good righteous husband who turned the mistakes of his wife to positive sides in their life together, because the best Muslim man is the one who is best to his wife and should make her feel that she is so special to him.

Narrated Abu Hurairah that Prophet Muhammad (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best disposition and the best of you are those who are best to their wives.” [Tirmidhi]
