Treat Your Wife How You Want Your Daughter to Be Treated

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymīn [رحمه الله] said:
❝…Know that when you deal and interact with your wife then it is mandatory that you think of a [scenario] where a man is the husband of your daughter. How does he treat her? Would you be pleased for him to treat her with harshness and sternness? The answer is no. Therefore, do not be content with treating the daughter of another person in a fashion that you would not be pleased for your daughter to be treated. This principle should be known by all people.❞
[Ash-Sharh Al-Mumti’, (12/381) | Translated By Hasan al-Sūmali]

The believers with the most complete faith..


Imam mubarakfuri رحمة الله عليه writes in explanation of the hadeeth (which can be seen in the picture):
لأن كمال الإيمان يوجب حسن الخلق و الإحسان إلى كافة الناس
و خياركم خياركم لنسائهم لأنهن محل الرحمة لضعفهن
(The) completion of imaan necessitates good behaviour and excellence towards all of mankind
(And in particular women) because they are in a position of needing mercy and kindness due to their fragility.
