Hadith Explanation

Farewell Advice

Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "O people, your wives have certain rights over you and you have certain rights over them. Treat them well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers." [Tirmidhi]

Fair dealings and good behaviour is necessary towards everyone, but the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), mercy for all mankind, emphasized it especially towards women. A man is rewarded for every morsel of food that he puts into his wife's mouth. The best sadaqah is that which is spent on one's family and kindness to the wife is an aspect of faith. Aisha (radi Allahu anha) reported Allah's Messenger as saying, "Among the believers who show most perfect faith are those who have the best disposition, and are kindest to their families." [Tirmidhi]

Aisha (radi Allahu anha), the Prophet's wife, is one of the most famous women in Islamic history. She was gifted with outstanding intelligence and memory, and is considered to be one of the most reliable narrators of ahadith of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam).
