Educating Your Wife

After years of marriage and settling into a routine with children, eventually a time comes when most Muslim husbands have no idea how their wives spend their days.

It does not bother them that their bored wives gossip for hours on the phone, watch excessive movies and television, or waste time window shopping, attending ladies'lunches or tea-parties, or hip-hopping from the mall to the tailor to get new outfits made.

A good Muslim husband should be aware that his wife's secular and religious education is his responsibility. He should know that Allaah (swt) will question him about this, thus he should ensure that his wife gains knowledge of the Quraan and attends sermons, groups, seminars or workshops for the same…

It is imperative that the husband enables his wife to fulfil her religious obligations by using gentle reminders and arranging for her education about Islaam.
