The truth my brothers, is that whoever has been provided with a woman, who is a student of knowledge, then indeed he has been provided with much goodness. So it’s binding upon him to honour her and to thank Allah for this blessing. I remind myself and my brothers, on this occasion, that it is binding upon us to fear Allah with our women.
A lot of Muslims (men) have good character, good actions and everybody loves being close to him except his family because when he enters the house he changes. In front of other people he is from the best and gentlest of people. Smiling much and soft in speech. But when he enters his house he changes and becomes angry, he gets angry for the smallest of things, he swears about the smallest of things, he fights about the smallest of things.
We must fear Allah in the apparent and hidden. Our condition shouldn’t change: in front of people and likewise when we are in our houses, our condition is one. We are observant of Allah. We must honour the women of house: our wives, sisters, daughters, and mothers also. Treat them how they ought to be treated. As I said, if the wife is a student of knowledge, this is a great blessing. She supports you in obeying Allah and supports you in goodness. So be thankful to Allah for this blessing, honour her and also, support her in seeking knowledge.
