How To Be An Outstanding Husband & Wife
Sheikh Muhammad AlShareef shares with his listeners many pearls of wisdom in this lecture. The target audience is, of course, Muslim brothers. But this lecture is incredibly beneficial for sisters as well. There is a great deal of insight that both husbands and wives can benefit from. It is comprised of a series of techniques that the Sheikh offers to husbands (and future husbands) on how to please one’s wife and insha’Allah become an ideal husband. The techniques offered are all-encompassing, and the main source of evidence for these techniques is the seerah of Rasoolallah (s). Many touching and heart-warming ahadith are mentioned about the Prophet’s (s) interactions with his wives, with many priceless lessons to be learned from these.
Most Muslims have heard numerous lectures on women’s rights in Islam. In particular, the woman’s rights and obligations as a wife are discussed a great deal amongst Western audiences. As important as this topic may be, it is refreshing to hear someone discuss the role of the Muslim wife in a new light. Rather than simply focusing on the Shari’ah and controversial women’s issues, Sheikh Muhammad shares some excellent techniques on how the wife can please her husband as well as please Allah in this lecture. He offers Muslim women a series of techniques on how to win the heart of her husband, as well as uphold her responsibilities as a Muslim wife. Incorporated into this lecture are many examples from the lives of the Sahaabiyaat and other notable women. Interestingly enough, some examples from books written by non-Muslim authors, such as Laura Dole’s work, “The Surrendered Wife” are also used.
