A Reminder from a beloved wife to her beloved husband
Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullaah
My dear husband, we all know that marriage is a sign from the signs of Allaah. Allaah (The Most High) said:
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. [30:21]
My dear husband, I pray that Allaah (The Most High) grants you happiness and success in this life and the next.
May I remind you that being obedient to you in that which Allaah loves is an act of worship and your acts of kindness and compassion are also acts of worship, which cannot be fulfilled except by the Tawfeeq of Allaah (The Most High). So I ask Allaah (The Most High) to grant me Tawfeeq so that I continue being an obedient wife in that which Allaah loves.
- I also ask Allaah (The Most High) to reward you and grant you safety in this life and the next. Aameen
My dear husband-may Allaah preserve you upon the Sunnah and upon obedience to Him-we all know that that love and compassion in marriage, which is confined within the boundaries of the sharia is the only source of happiness in marriage; therefore
- I ask Allaah (The Most High) to increase this love between us and include us amongst His grateful slaves.
You know that marriage is a beautiful and blessed affair, but because we are only human we will fall short due to forgetfulness and weakness. Allaah (The Most High) said: [وخُلِقَ الإنسَانُ ضَعِيفاً – And the Insaan was created weak (4:28)]
Therefore, let us constantly remind one another –with gentleness, love, compassion, eagerness for khayr- about fear of Allaah and the home of the afterlife.
Indeed, we must utilize the blessed relationship of marriage-which is the one ordained by Allaah-to please our Lord and strive to achieve eternal success in the afterlife. Indeed, we have heard the statement of Allaah (The Most High):
فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الصَّاخَّةُ
يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ
لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَأْنٌ يُغْنِيهِ
وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُّسْفِرَةٌ
وَوُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَلَيْهَا غَبَرَةٌ
أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَفَرَةُ الْفَجَرَةُ
Then, when there comes As-Sakhkhah (the Day of Resurrection’s second blowing of Trumpet);
- That Day shall a man flee from his brother; And from his mother and his father; And from his wife and his children.
- Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others.
- Some faces that Day, will be bright (true believers of Islamic Monotheism). Laughing, rejoicing at good news (of Paradise).
And other faces, that Day, will be dust-stained; Darkness will cover them; Such will be the Kafarah (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, and in His Messenger Muhammad (), etc.), the Fajarah (wicked evil doers). [80:33-42]
