Since I reverted to Islam I’ve often done tons of research to know how to become the best wife I possibly can Inshaállah. I’ve noticed it’s very easy to find compiled lists of what a wife should and shouldn’t do but also noticed how hard it is to find that list for brothers. Why does everyone concentrate on the wife? Wife must obey the husband, wife should look pretty for husband, wife must keep a clean home, blah blah blah the list goes on. I’m not saying that the list isn’t in any way wrong because I try my best to practice those duties as a wife but I think “some” brothers also should remember they have duties more than just bringing in the money. So as to a few requests I’ve gotten from sisters here is a list I was able to compile from two articles written by scholars.

“Among His signs is the fact that he has created spouses from among yourselves, so that you may find tranquillity with them; and he has put love and mercy between you. In that are signs for people who reflect.”
[Qur’an 30:21]

“They (wives) are garments for you, while you are garments for them.”
[Qur’an 2:187]

“From among the believers are those who have the kindest disposition and are the kindest to their families- such are those who show the most perfect faith. “The best among them are those who are kindest to their wives.” [Bukhari and Muslim] (more…)

Personal Bubble

Ever sat in a restaurant or some public place where all of a sudden you just “feel” someone is disturbing your personal bubble. Yes, even though you are in a public place, we all have our bubble—that internal privacy. This bubble is more defined as the boundary that limits the interaction between the public and yourself. Now after having this “feeling”, you try to affirm it by turning around, only to find a low-eyed loser staring right back at you. Then that spine-chilling wink comes. You quickly turn back around, but it’s too late. You already threw up a bit in your mouth. So long for keeping your lunch down. Now the only thing that’s going through your mind is that you wish you hadn’t turned around in the first place, and by doing so, you’ve now granted yourself a new ‘friend’, a possible stalker if you may.
