This Hadith ordains every individual in society, whether he is a ruler or ruled citizen or even a
woman who leads her life within the four walls of her house, to perform his duties within his own sphere. Not only
that, every person has been made responsible to reform the state of affairs in his control and establish equity and
justice because he will be held accountable for any negligence on his part in this respect.

Abu `Ali Talq bin `Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
When a
man calls his wife to satisfy his desire, she must go to him even if she is occupied with the oven".

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"If I were to order anyone
to prostrate himself before another, I would have ordered a woman to prostrate herself before her husband".
This Hadith also shows the unique importance of the wife's obedience to her husband within her
capacity and as long as he does not order her to disobey Allah.

Umm Salamah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Any woman dies
while her husband is pleased with her, she will enter Jannah".
The distinction mentioned in this Hadith is for those women who abide by the duties and obligations
entrusted to them by Islam and also endeavour to keep their husbands happy. Allah
(SWT) will pardon their
ordinary acts of omission and commission and admit them to Jannah.

Mu`adh bin Jabal (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"Whenever a woman
harms her husband in this world (that is without any due right), his wife among the (Houris in Jannah) says: `You
must not harm him. May Allah destroy you! He is only a passing guest with you and is about to leave you to come to
The Islamic Shari`ah commands men to treat their wives with kindness. In the same spirit it
commands wives to be obedient to their husbands. She can hurt the feelings of her husband by using indecent
language, immodest conduct, immoral actions and making unfair demands which are beyond his means. It is very
common among women to tease and trouble their husbands by these three practices, except for pious women.

Usamah bin Zaid (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
