 A gift for a Muslim Bride: A book that teaches her to start a new life with her husband

When A Girl is about to get married,she is nervous and apprehensive of her new life .In those moments , she needs someone who talk to her ,comfort her ,erase her fear and guide her to an establishment of a happy family .I remember my marriage days.I was like,”Wait,I don’t know anything.How will I be a good wife ? “My mother then comforted me and  gave me a book that had all the essential details I needed to know . She said ,I am your mother .The things I cannot say you openly ,you will find it in this book.

I learned that the golden rule to keep in mind are :-

1)Your Husband is your door to Paradise

There are in numerous hadeeth that states that a Husband is he door to Paradise for a woman.

1)Ahmad (19025) and al-Haakim narrated from al-Husayn ibn Muhsin that his paternal aunt came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) for something and he dealt with her need, then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Do you have a husband?” She said, “Yes.” He said: “How are you with him?” She said, “I do not neglect any of his rights except those I am unable to fulfill.” He said: “Look at how you are with him, for he is your paradise and your hell” – i.e., he is the cause of you entering Paradise if you fulfil his rights and the cause of your entering Hell if you fall short in that.

Al-Mundhiri classed the isnaad of this hadeeth as jayyid in al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb; it was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, no. 1933.

2)Ibn Hibbaan narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If a woman prays her five (daily prayers), fasts her month (Ramadaan), guards her chastity and obeys her husband, it will be said to her: ‘Enter Paradise from whichever of the gates of Paradise you wish.’” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 660.

2)Your Husband deserves to be Respected.

A Husband deserves to be respected. I remember a hadeeth,

Ibn Maajah (1853) narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Abi Awfa said: When Mu’aadh came from Syria, he prostrated to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) who said, “What is this, O Mu’aadh?” He said, I went to Syria and saw them prostrating to their archbishops and patriarchs, and I wanted to do that for you. The Messenger of Allaah (S) said, “Do not do that. If I were to command anyone to prostrate to anyone other than Allaah, I would have commanded women to prostrate to their husbands. By the One in Whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, no woman can fulfil her duty towards Allaah until she fulfils her duty towards her husband. If he asks her (for intimacy) even if she is on her camel saddle, she should not refuse.”

Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah.

A lesson

If every girl remembers this few hadeeths,she would be In sha Allah able to suppress a little of her ego,a little of her nafs and a little of her desire but in return get abundant of thawab, abundant of love and abundant mercy from Allah swt,In sha Allah.

What to do in the best 10 days of Dhul Hijja – A checklist for Non-Hujjaj

Why is the first "10 days of Dhul Hijja "the Best Days of Islamic year Allaah has preferred the first 10 days of dhul hijja over all the other days of the year.This is evident from the following Hadeeths. Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2/457). Also (Reported by al-Daarimi, 1/357; its isnaad is hasan as stated in al-Irwaa’, 3/398).

  1. I think I read this before a few years prior to getting married. Whilst I did not agree with all the points the author made (i.e in general not any hadith related ones), I think you’ve highlighted some good points from the book.

  2. Thanks for reviewing this book. I feel like it was pretty centered on how a woman must worship her husband, and I don’t think that’s appropriate. I feel like it works both ways but it is also good advice as per the hadith.
