The Companionship of a Righteous Wife

Reference: Majmoo’ al-Fataawa 35/299

The righteous woman will remain in the company of her husband – if he is a righteous man – for many years. She is the ‘enjoyment’ that the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) spoke about,

This world is only enjoyment, and the best of its enjoyment is a righteous believing woman. If you look towards her, she amazes you; if you encourage her with something. She obeys you; if you are absent from her, she preserves you within herself and your wealth. [1]

A ‘righteous woman’ is what the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) ordered with in his statement when the Muhaajiroon asked him, “What type of wealth should we acquire?”

He replied,

A tongue that is in constant remembrance, a heart which is grateful or a righteous woman who helps you in your Faith. [2]

Love and mercy that Allaah has blessed her with through His Book emanates from her. So sometimes the pain of separation (divorce) is more severe upon her than death, it is more severe than the disappearance of wealth and more severe upon her than leaving her country. More so when there exists a [deep] relationship between each other or if they have children who will be ruined and their situation destroyed if the husband and wife separate.

صحبة الزوجة الصالحة

المرجع: 35/299 مجموع الفتاوى

المرأة الصالحة تكون في صحبة زوجها الرجل الصالح سنين كثيرة ، وهي متاعه الذي قال فيها رسول الله :

((الدنيا متاع ، وخير متاعها المرأة المؤمنة ، إن نظرت إليها أعجبتك ، وإن أمرتها أطاعتك ، وإن غبت عنها حفظتك في نفسها ومالك))

وهي التي أمر بها النبي في قوله لما سأله المهاجرون أي المال نتخذ فقال :

((لساناً ذاكراً ، وقلباً شاكراً ، أو امرأة صالحةً تعين أحدكم على إيمانه))

رواه الترمذي ، من حديث سالم بن أبي الجعد ، عن ثوبان .

ويكون منها من المودة والرحمة ما امتنَّ الله تعالى بها في كتابه ، فيكون ألم الفراق أشد عليها من الموت أحيانا وأشد من ذهاب المال وأشد من فراق الأوطان ، خصوصا إن كان بأحدهما علاقة من صاحبه ، أو كان بينهما أطفال يضيعون بالفراق ويفسد حالهم
