Don’t argue with him when he is angry
Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu alaihe wasallam said: “Shall I not tell you about your wives in
Paradise.” We said “of course, O Messenger of Allah. He said, “They are fertile and loving. If she
became angry or is mistreated, or her husband becomes angry, she says, “My hand is in your hand, I
shall never sleep until you are pleased with me”.
Be sensible what you spend from his earnings
It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: “Hind bint ‘Utbah, the wife of Abu Sufyaan, entered upon the
Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihe wassallam and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, Abu Sufyaan is a
stingy man who does not spend enough on me and my children, except for what I take from his
wealth without his knowledge. Is there any sin on me for doing that?’ The Messenger of Allah
Sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, ‘Take from his wealth on a reasonable basis, only what is sufficient for
you and your children.’”
Don’t ask him for more than he can afford
Allah says, “but the father of the child shall bear the cost of the mother’s food and clothing on a
reasonable basis”
“Let the rich man spend according to his means; and the man whose resources are restricted, let
him spend according to what Allah has given him”
Prophet Sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, “The best woman who ride camels are the woman of
Quraysh. They are the most compassionate towards their children when they are small and the most
careful with regards to their husband’s wealth.”
